      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.

          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.

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

                  This system not only looks great but performs like a champ. Even on my 5 year old 50" Sony WEGA the picture quality is spectacular. The sound quality is excellent too. I havent had the system long enough to rate reliability but I have never had a problem with any of my Sony products. I love that it has 2 HDMI inputs for my other components. The only thing I can complain about is that when you stream Netflix, you can only access your instant que and cannot browse other selections. Overall this is a great product!
