      This HT system is a great buy for the money. Out of the box worked as expected. System setup and speaker setup was quite simple. Detected new firmware version as soon as connected to internet via Wi-FI. Firmware upgrade went smooth. Unlike one of the earlier reviewers of this system, I had no problem getting my iphone 3GS to work with front USB port. Worked wihout any problem. Also tried out the iphone app for the remote. That was cool! Audio performance is solid for this system. Blue Ray quality is quite superior. Rear wireless speakers capability is quite useful. By now, I expected Sony to integrate Wi-Fi capability into system (Built-in Wi-Fi) instead of providing USB Wi-FI adapter and taking up one USB port for it. Speakers are dull looking compared to IZ1000W (not yet available in the U.S.) Overall I'm quite satisfied with this purchase.

      Crisp Sound

      By SeattleVideo

      from Lake Stevens, WA

      Comments about Sony BDV-HZ970W 3D Home Theater System:

      We purchased this system to replace an aging Yamaha receiver/surround unit. We really wanted the wireless rear speakers. After some research we found that there is a unit that is wireless and the speakers plug into that with regular cables. At this price point that seems to be the only way they connect. What I LOVED about the setup was how the speaker cables connected easy and were color coded to avoid any confusion with positive and negative is or which speaker was which. The system integrates well (we have a Samsung 8500 LED TV and the BD player will turn on he TV and calibrate the settings when a BD is inserted.) and sounds great.

      Real theater experience

      By Keeze

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Pros

      • Great sound. Outstanding integration with Sony TV

      Cons

      • Flimsy stands
      • Not really adjustable

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony BDV-HZ970W 3D Home Theater System:

        This pairs with my new Sony HD TV seamlessly. It works together like it is a single entity. As such, I very much recommend pairing this with a modern Sony HD TV. Many settings happen automatically depending on what media and situation you are using. Still, settings can be easily adjusted if needed with well designed menus. The Blu-Ray player is actually a "disc" player in that it plays about any kind of disc, Blu-Ray, DVD, CD and even data CDs. Big plus as it means much fewer components! The wireless system for the rear Surround speakers is a plus, as I needed to mount them rather far back in the room. Easy calibration procedure with the calibration mic determines the distance of each speaker, so the balance is correct no matter where you place them. The system even includes the USB wireless adaptor, so Internet video access is also on the menu (Of course you need your own wireless- or wired- home system for that to work). Physical setup was a bit of a hassle, but with five speakers to wire, you have to expect that. If you don't have the time or inclination, Sony will send people to do it for you for a reasonable fee. The front speaker stands come with two different "rods" of different heights, The only way to "adjust" the height is to select the rods you want to use and assemble with those. I initially set it up with the higher rods, but it was wobbly and seemed unstable. Switching to the lower height rods meant un-wiring and disassembling the speakers stands and starting over. Once set up though, everything worked great! First movie viewed was "2001, a Space Odyssey" which I had seen in great theaters, which made an excellent comparison. The experience was very much like being in a real theater! Be aware that you will need to separately order or have a high speed HDMI cable to connect to a modern TV system.

              • Excellent sound quality

              • Nice to have in build wifi (but so far no issues with external USB wifi)

              Best Uses

                Comments about Sony BDV-HZ970W 3D Home Theater System:

                I have connected this Sony BDVHT with Samsung HDTV , DirecTv HD receiver , PC through 2 HDMI input ports and functions works perfect!
                Rear surrond Speakers Wireless(no wires from front BDV receiver but we need to connect wires to S-AIR surrond reciever at the back)
                Overall setup is easy (very clear instruction manual).
                Checked for network update which Detected new version, connected to internet via Wi-FI and upgraded new version without any issues.
                I have also connected my wireless Windows keyboard using front USB port and it worked perfect (very helpful to type in Youtube 'search' Bar)
                Played youtube videos excellent sound.
                Calibration Mic : You plug in the included calibration microphone and place it at your listening position. Then you simply use the on-screen menu to start the auto-calibration check. In half a minute or so of some beeping from each speaker your BDV-HT will "know" how to adjust its sound output to match your room acoustics and it will save the information in its memory. If you add or subtract some furniture or move your unit to another room you can repeat the test and store the new results.
