  • Geez this is like a 5yr old model

    • Is 5 years too old for speakers? I don't think so. For someone with limited budget i believe this would be perfect setup for a 5.1 system.

      • Perfect for a soundbar 5.1 setup. This isn’t actually 5.1.

        • Says 5.1 in the product description. If it's not 5.1 what is it?

          • @d14a028c2a3a2bc9: What he meant was it's virtual 5.1 , not acutually 5 speakers and 1 sub.

          • @d14a028c2a3a2bc9: It's simulated 5.1. It gets left and right channels by firing it off walls/environment. Most soundbars don't do stereo well given how narrow they are, so it's mostly just a centre channel with simulated left/right, then with two separate rear channels plus sub.

            Samusng soundbars are 9.1.2 according to the specs, but do they have 9 separate channels that are correctly spaced/positioned with 2 in ceiling speakers?

  • Noticed this a few times now - The first comment means soo much to the fate of a deal !
    I thought this was a good deal until I read the comment.

  • In this sort of price range I'd probably recommend a proper 5.1 setup with separate L, R and Centre channels. Something like https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/399347 that comes on special every now and again.

      I was just thinking the same thing! It's $399 at Amazon and TGG, but I'm sure if you wait long enough you'll find it cheaper.

      • I'm also in the same boat. I was thinking of using little birdie coupon to get 20$ off at both GG or at Amazon. But not sure which 1 is a better model.

    • Much better buy.
      Reasonable AVR,allowing speakers to be upgraded later on.

  • I got this 4 years ago with the Sony X9000E at launch, I've used it since then. It's a great little unit, played with some settings thanks to Rtings.com and I love it.

    I practically use it for movies, video games, parties- I like it alot better than an older Yamaha 5.1 sound system I had for a few years. You can adjust a fair few settings (background audio or primary audio through the little left and right speakers) it makes a big difference.

    Admittedly I got it dirt cheap (I think $300 odd with the TV as a bundle)- might be better tech due to the age available at the moment.

    Any questions feel free to flick me a message.

  • surround speakers are not wireless?

  • Why would you buy a 2016 model in 2021?
