S-Air
 
Sony's site says: NOTE: Common devices that operate at the frequency range of 2.4GHz and are therefore possible causes of interference are cordless telephones, wireless routers, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices, X10 devices, and microwave ovens. To avoid interference among the S-AIR main units, the distance should be longer than 8 meters (26 1/4 feet). You have to "pair" the S-Air sub unit device to the main unit to activate the "wireless" rear speakers (which aren't truly wireless as th...

Awesome
 
First the awesomely rapid delivery of the surround sound system was worth a five. Then I was amazed at how easy it was to connect and actually hear sound from the wireless speakers and the bass output. Then, for small speakers they pack a powerful punch. I like my movies to sound like I am in a theater so I crank the volume, these speakers can handle the load without cracking (or crackling). Of course my wife likes the movie sound quieter so we do turn the volume down a bit. I believe this ...

Sony DAV-HDX279W
 
Am very pleased with this unit, No problem hooking it up. Instructions are not the best, but typical of most instruction books written in China or the Far East. I'd give it a 5, except for one thing! Why oh why didn't Sony give you a remote that would let you connect other brands of TV to the system. I started out having to use the Sony remote to control volume and use another remote for the TV. I'm on Comcast Cable, so I tried to use that remote to control everything. However, the number...

Good sound and value
 
First:Kudos to Crutchfield for the helpful website, rapid delivery and having more useful stuff on your website than Sony does. I especially appreciate the owner's manual. The system took more study than I expected. Because I also bought a Sony Brevia HDTV, I would have thought the instructions for the two would be integrated. Also it is a more voluminous manual because it covers three different models of surround sound systems. I like the iPod set up. Getting the wireless speakers to w...

Good Value For Money
 
Pros: Easy sound calibration process. Easy Ipod control trough dock Nice selection of video & audio inputs and video outputs. Cons: DVD System works only with zone 1 discs. Wireless Rear Sound Kit overheats a little when used at max volume on a prolonged period of time

Pretty good overall - but with some frustrating limitations
 
All in all, it's fine considering I got a really good deal on it, just fell below my expectations. Had I paid full price I would probably have returned it.Beware if you think you're getting into a simple "setup and go"/"plug & play" system. In my experience, you'll be lucky if you can get all 5 speakers working at the same time without major setup the first 5-10 times you use it with a different scenario (cable/dvr, dvd) and extensive reading. I have an HDTV & DVR and have been on ...

A good value
 
Was pleased to discover that this product also had a radio tuner. It was not mentioned in the specs or even on the box. Would like for it to have had totally wireless rear speakers, but . . .

compatibility of sound system with TV
 
I have a Sony Bravia 40 inch high definition LCD. I wanted a sound system that was compatible and would integrate well with the TV. After reviewing several surround sound systems, I decided on the Sony Bravia Theater System, due to the specs but mainly because it was the same brand as the TV. After installation (which was easy and set up quick), I couldn't be more pleased. The sound is ample for the room in which it is located, there is good separation for 5.1 Dolby, the controls for the TV o...
