Sony 5.1 Ch 1000W Home Theatre System
For good surround sound, you need 1000W or more and at $699rrp, this Sony is about $100 cheaper than some of its competitors in the same price range. Extra features not found on some others include 2 USB ports, WiFi and 20 preset tuner frequencies.
The subwoofer on this Sony is only 200 watts. For best bass sound, more is better and a similarly priced Panasonic has a 250 watt subwoofer and wireless floor standing speakers.
Overall: When buying a home theatre system, you have to look carefully at all the features and compare one model with another in the same price range. This Sony would get 4 stars if it was offered on sale, but is only average at the RRP.

Energy efficiency is of utmost importance to Australia. The purchase of an energy efficient Plasma or LCD TV reduces your household energy consumption. This benefits you directly in the form of lower electricity bills. Just as importantly, it benefits all Australians when each of us does our part to reduce greenhouse emissions. For these reasons, we prominently display an energy efficiency rating below all of our product descriptions.
You don't have to be very old to remember when LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screens were invented. Today, LCD TVs completely dominate the television market. Their nearest competitors, plasma TVs continue to lose ground against them while anything less than a flat screen TV is almost considered quaintly old fashioned.
When VHS tapes were introduced to the market, television viewing was transformed forever. For a few short years, it seemed like VHS recorders/players were the ultimate in technology, but it wasn't long before they were replaced by DVD players. Now there's another "player" on the scene -- the Blu-ray disc player -- and it looks like the DVD may be going the way of the VHS.
Blu-ray players are a direct result of the switch from analog to digital TV services and the introduction of HD (high definition) television. How do they work? Why are they better than DVD players? This guide to Blu-ray disc player will answer these questions and more.
