3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 15, 2011

The Sony HT-SS380 is a standard 5.1-channel home theater audio system with four satellite speakers, a central channel, a subwoofer, and a receiver. Together they output 1000W. It offers 1080p video playback of Blu-ray sources via an HDMI repeater (3 in, 1 out) that supports stand-by-pass through, 3D pass through, and the audio return channel (ARC). Other devices like DVD and CD players can also be hooked up to it. Also included is an iPhone & iPod docking station. Overall, the Sony HT-SS380 is a more barebones, entry-level model, especially when compared to the other three theater systems released alongside it—BDV-E780W, BDV-E580, and BDV-E280. Features 5.1-Channel Home Theater System 4x Satellite Speakers 1x Central Channel 1x Subwoofer 1080p Video Playback 3D/2D Blu-ray Playback HDMI Repeater Stand-by-Pass-Through 3D-Pass-Through Audio Return Channel iPhone/iPod Dock ... PROS: (1) Automatic calibration via microphone performs accurately and quickly in most rooms (2) BRAVIA Sync feature reduces setup time between Sony devices, convenient (3) Very affordable value for first-time home theatre buyers (4) Better than average sound quality, especially in subwoofer, for this low-end price range (5) Built in iPod dock is an improvement over previous SS370 model in same price range ... CONS: (1) LCD screen is small with smaller icons than many receivers (2) Does not have any composite connections so must be used exclusively with HDMI, not great for backwards compatibility (3) Included speaker wiring is shorter than typical HTIB sets (4) Wires cannot be disconnected from rear of speakers

Excellent Sound System!
5 Star Review   By Parker612 on Sony - Official Store - Aug 16, 2012   

I'm a film student majoring in post-production so I mainly use this system with my iMac when editing a project in surround sound. This system works great for that! It's easy to connect to my iMac and provides excellent sound quality. I have also used this system with my TV for watching films and HD TV. It was very easy to set up. There are several different sound presets for watching movies, TV, sports, listening to music, gaming, etc. There are also a lot of adjustable settings. It comes with an iPod dock which is nice. The only thing I don't like about this product is the length of the speaker wires. I don't have an issue with them, I have plenty of wire for my setups, but for someone that has a larger area to cover it could be hard to place the speakers where you would want them. Overall, excellent system for an good price. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for surround sound for their computer or home theater.

Hands Down the Best Deal for the Money
5 Star Review   By 4to5characters on Sony - Official Store - May 25, 2012   

With the employee discount and free shipping, this is the best deal for the money on any similarly-featured surround sound system. It's a solid system that you will not be dissappointed with. It auto-calibrates the sound for an amazing movie watching experience. It has iPhone/iPod connection. I'm enjoying all of my digital content, BluRay DVDs and Cable TV in great surround sound. I'd recommend this to anyone.

4 Star Review   By TexansFan on Sony - Official Store - Feb 13, 2012   

I read many reviews but didn't believe. I got a similar system(Samsung) to match my TV. So glad the guy at sears talked me into this one. Sounds great especially for the price and it's easy to set up.

Great System
5 Star Review   By mdfromnj on Sony - Official Store - Jan 16, 2012   

I recently purchased this Theater System and WOW. I am not a geek and have trouble with setting anything up, but this was easy. I also hooked in my son's gaming system and the sound is amazing. I did a ton of research before making my decison to buy, and I am glad that I made this purchase.
