Sony BDV-N790W

 

Excellent sound, wireless rear speakers really help in keeping the area uncluttered. Integrates with Sony Bravia TV beautifully, one button switches the tv and speakers on and off.

Some of the settings are hard to find, for example; to set up what the surround speakers do when they are receiving a stereo input (eg playing music), you have to play a dvd/blu-ray and access the sound menu from there, this setting is not available...

- Excellent sound - Looks fantastic and well designed ( Yes you can't see the screen but all the info can be seen on TV when you press Display) - Works fantastically well with a Sony HX8 - Very powerful sound and the quality of the Blue Ray is very...

The sound is fantastic

Can be a delay when changing volume whilst watching the tv (no problems when playing dvds, blu-rays or cds)

Sony BDV-N790W

 

The surround sound on blu-ray is great. Wi Fi linking the rear speakers to the system is really smart: no trailing wires. I love the way the speaker wires fit the speaker stands. Setting up the system balance was oh so easy!

None!
