Sounds great, Nice design, HDMI support

Only HDMI support for video, Not great for music

If you have HDMI capable devices at home and don't mind being without analogue connections, the Sony HTSF1000 might be a good choice, offering great sound and a stylish design.

Sony HT-SF1000


Very good looking design. Very good set of features. Easy set-up with the supplied microphone.

Top volume is lower than expected on DVD source and is only just acceptable - as many others have commented.

The sound quality is great, the ability to control other Sony products from the one remote really good and the look and feel is classy.

Manuals are unclear watch out for the Digital Coax connection for sound from a DVD, I didn't spot it and it tokk me three days to get sound from DVD's

Product Specifications

The new HT-SF1000 component home theater system combines power and style. A break through slim design that also delivers 700 watts of power and comes complete with four slim line tower speakers, a slim line center speaker and subwoofer. Designed to match Sony's famous Bravia LCD TVs, the HT-SF1000 incorporates Sony's unique 32-Bit S-Master digital amplifier technology allowing huge power output without the bulk normally associated with traditional components. Although slim in design, this system is not slim on features. As well as the 32-bit S-Master digital amplifier, the HT-SF1000 includes a 32-Bit DSP for DTS / Dolby Digital / Dolby Pro Logic II, Digital Cinema Sound with 16 sound modes, HDMI digital video switching and A/V Sync switchable audio delay for adjusting Lip-Sync. Sleekly styled and generating tremendous power, this home theater system is sure to make you the envy of all your friends.
