I hate how much sound travels at night.

deadpoole3699d ago

I love sony products ... Sony Bravia Teles, Sony PS3, Sony PSP, Sony 5.1 sound system Z series, and can go on ... but this product hmmm Im still confused how 5.1ch will work with soundbar. Will it be able to give the same feelin which u get from complete system.

But then again before passin judgement Ill defi check it out at Local sony store. But my prev experience with soundbars werent satisfactory. Hopefully it'll be good enough to change my mind.

Just a silly question but whats the point of this? Isnt this a little bit late to teh party?

Baka-akaB3699d ago

the whole reason is quite already described , it's for "dummies" ... namely even easier to setup than other home theater (gotta wonder who can't install those on their own , however)

dalibor3699d ago

While the setup is easy lmao you have to consider that some rooms are to small for a full surround sound so this comes in handy for those people/environment. $180 isn't to bad. Hopefully it has the audio inputs so you can this bad boy to anything other than your PS3, if it's PS3 only that would suck. I like my speakers to be able to connect to anything I want, tv, bluray/dvd player, computer, ect. It makes it more useful and versatile.

SuperStrokey11233699d ago

Ok guys thanks for the answers. Sounds like its a niche product which is ok for sure. This should have come when the PS3 launched though rather tha 4 years later imo

kneon3699d ago

I might buy some of these. While my main PS3 is hooked up to a HTR with 7.1 surround, the others are not and there really isn't room to hook up a full surround sound system. So for $180 this is a good solution.

I'm sure it's no where near as good as a real multi speaker setup but when space is limited or you just can't run all those wires this will do.

$179.99 for those interested.

Neckbear3699d ago

I can find a better sound system for half of that, I bet.

home theater costs $150.00. this thing costs too much for not enough power. when things go boom in games, i want my floor to shake.

edit* i forgot my HT is 5.1

Boody-Bandit3699d ago (Edited 3699d ago )

You're not going to get your floor to shake for a $150 unless you are playing games in a phone booth or purchase a buttkicker gamer and attach it to the chair you're sitting on. But then you would only have tv sound to go with that buttkicker.

Personally. I would purchase a decent pair of headphones and a tactile transducer (Aura) if I wanted or had to go cheap. Thankfully I don't have to go cheap and I truly have sound systems and subs that can crack foundations of most homes.

Okay that is a slight exaggeration but I can rattle dishes in my kitchen cabinets and shake items off of my coffee table.

Rca is terrible company. IMO their right up their with Bose for shitty products.

Back on topic. Anyone interested in this deal I suggest you invest in a true 5.1 sound system. Soundbars are shit imo. The only reason why people settle for this is
a. they want to avoid the hassle of wiring up a sytem
b. they dont have the room.

Invest a $100 more into a real Sony home theatre kit.

Chris_TC3699d ago

It has what? A "built-in subwoofer"? Are you seriously kidding me?

A decent subwoofer needs two things:
1) Volume
2) Weight

This $180 cheese box has neither. $180 buys you maybe a half decent rear surround speaker.

AceofStaves3699d ago

That's the perfect option for me.

Boody-Bandit3699d ago (Edited 3699d ago )

Sound bars are cool for people that don't want a receiver, wires all over the place and or have room for 5 to 7 speakers and a sub or two.

Personally I would look into other soundbar options. You can probably pick up one online of better quality for just a bit more money. Sony makes great display, dvd, BluRay etc players but I would personally go in a different direction for speakers.

ballsofsteel3699d ago

my tv has an older version of virtual surround sound technology called S force and even on the TV speaker the surround sound is amazing.i remember playing countless hours of COD4 hearing footsteeps and know exactly where they were. people would always say that i was lagging or hacking it i would just tell them it good surround sound. the only thing it really lacked was range and base(obviously has it's part of the tv itself) but considering that base is built into this and its upgraded i would advice people to not easily pass this by i might get it if it has a decent price

Mmmkay3699d ago (Edited 3699d ago )

you can per definition NOT get good surround sound from two tv speakers.... virtual surround sounds like shit compared to the real deal.
