General Opinion on Sony Home Cinema Kits (well one in particular)?

Looking to get a home cinema setup for my bedroom- I've seen this sony htss600 on empire direct for £165 and was wondering if anyone had any experience with it or Sony systems in general and could comment?

Cheers
Vin

I've had a DAV-S800 for a few years and I'm very happy with it. The only downside was the lack of SCART, it's S-Video only. Was £800 new at the time though

Ive just got this setup for my room

I was a little dissapionted at first with the lack or uuuummffff. Its very good on DVD's and you have to change the settings when switching from TV to DVD as you need more SUB on the TV

But its not too bad

Bought mine for 154 from empire.

That kit is pretty good for DVD's as mentioned above, it does have DPL-II for TV use too but as mentioned the level is a little low in the phono inputs, but nothing a quick stab of the volume up can't fix At that price its a good buy, I got one for my parents with the Sony DVD Recorder last christmas (bundle pack) and they have been impressed so far.

Think its basically down to the Sub not being Active. The satelite speakers are good. But I wanted a Slimline Reciever so im pretty much stuck with passive sub anyway.

I would recomend it if you are short of space, otherwise go for a setup with a larger reciever with active sub.

Ooh, that's a different model to the one my parents have, they have the HTR-6000 (which is the HT-SL60 reciever) which does have the active sub and a different look (I just looked at the zoomed pic). I would definately go for one with the active sub!
