 Let Down by SONY

| | See all BigFellainBlue's reviews (2)

I agree with biobob and if I had read his review I would never have purchased this item. ITs great if you want to watch dvds through it or link your ipod but as biobob stated if you want to use it as an amp and plug your PS3, Xbox etc through it its crap and you have to keep changing all the leads over. It needs some form of optical/audio input then it would be great. Im now left with a machine that I cant use and dont want. I hope I can return it. It would be helpful if when PLAY sell electronics they show a close up of the front and back of the machines with descriptions of what all the sockets are for.
£200-00 down the toilet!!!!!

 Where is the optical????

This product should be so good, but it is so bad I bought this because the dz260 is not available any more. it has no optical inputs so you have to plug everything into the TV in scart2, Xbox no longer works, ps3 blu ray is now only mixed down to stereo, the only thing in digital 5.1 is the dvd itself.

Why have Sony killed this product with no optical, it has made it a bag of Cr**p with no decent inputs.

if you want to watch only dvds and have sky+ only stereo buy this as the sound is great.

But if you have an Xbox, ps3 or anything else dont buy it, keep looking as it is a pain in the Ar**e

 Amazing - Change the settings people!!!!

This cinema system is amazing people. Ive heard many people have suffered from the D.R.T.F.M. problem (didnt read the flipping manual prolblem). To get the sound out of every speaker in every mode, you must look at the remote and press "System Menu", then on the DVD player will show "D.E.C MODE" Press select or ok on dvd cinema remote. Then you will be shown "A.F.D. STD" now either press the up or down arrows to reach "A.F.D MULTI", easier if you press down then you will be straight to it. And there you go, all sound, out of every speaker. Easy people!

Rating the cinema system is and easy 5 stars, bass is amazing, crisp sounds from my other blu-ray player are out of this world. For the price it's an absolute bargain considering all the extras you get with it. iPod dock, USB play and Rec, upscaling, automatic calibration with a mic. Just sublime.

Please people read the manual before rating because this has been rated as a 2 star system because you havent read the manual and changed the setting yourself. I hope you all understand my little guide on how to change the settings, takes about 10 seconds to do. If your confused then as i said, read the manual.

Thank you sony for this perfect system for the price.

 pretty good

Just change speaker adjustment settings on menu to audio sytem through audio cables from player to tv and choose setting on dvd player to line.got ipod through other audio line select audio menu on player for it to play through system fantastic!also got blu-ray player hooked up to main tv so surround sound is fantastic don't waste £400 plus on blu-ray surround as this is just as good.to play sound through tv has to be at line menu!reminder,does not connect to xbox directly check you have proper settings on tv and right connections.need at least 1 hdmi for blu-ray,ive got blue,green,red white and red hdmi audio connections for xbox wired straight to tv(do not connect yellow wire) audio lead from ipod to plain red and white audio connection on tv.and dvd player connected to red,white,yellow connection on tv.(leave yellow connection free just connect to red and white though.hopefully helpful

I totally agree with the other reviews i only wish they had appeared before i bought it, i rang sony and they said its not set up to connect to xbox or ps3 which was the only reason i bought it. so i you want to watch dvds with surrond sound and normal tv buy it or do yourself a favour and dont bother
