      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.

      Playing blu rays, this player is great, the features are great, and the sound is even better. However, streaming content to this unit from your computer or server is not gonna work well. The ps3 decodes and plays any file perfectly and clearly, this player will not play any file clearly or perfect like it should for the price. I am very disappointed with this part because this is the main reason i purchased this particular setup which was the most expensive one in its class.

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

              I recently bought this system and I blew away my expectations. I know this system is on the expensive side, but it is well worth it. It's the complete package... I love everything about it. I've tried out a few blu-rays and they are as crisp as they come with the blu-ray player. I do use a universal remote (logitech harmony 1100) instead of the included universal remote, but the included one works great for everything also. I have it in my bedroom, and it sounds like a perfect system for my room. The one SMALL knock and this is a nitpick is that it only has FM radio, no AM. But, I'm fine with that considering how great the system really is. Furthermore, if you're looking to get a complete system, this is the one to get.

                I use it in my bedroom and my wife and I love the ease of use of the system, the pristine sound and picture.

                I recommend it without reservation.
