Sony HT-SS1000


Neat, integrates with other Sony products easily. Sounds fantastic compared with TV Speakers, probably not good with higher spec systems, but overall at this price pint very good indeed.

Synchronizing the speech with satellite broadcasts is difficult to get right and seems out most of the time, Not sure why.

Sony HT-SS1000


Fantastic quality, both build and output. Just watch 'Saving Private Ryan' upscaled or in BlueRay! You will be ducking for cover in your lounge.

Have to read the manual. Maybe not a bad point!

Sony HT-SS1000


Excellent sound when used with a dolby decoded dvd, easy to setup, unobtrusive.

Sound level has to be near maximum or maximum for a decent effect, if input is not dobly decoded sound is unimpressive.
