The audio quality is impressive and if you are a bass lover then there is a special extra bass button, keep it on. You will easily feel the difference when using extra bass and when not using it. As far as the volume is concerned it is amazingly loud, so loud that at full volume your neighbors will complain.

  1. Bought Jabra Solemate Max which has close to 80W RMS output for 6k during sale, sounds lot better than many competing models under 15k price range

  2. What the Hell about Price 14.8k. I Got Logitech Z906 5.1 THX Certified Dolby + DTS Speakers For With 6 diffrent inputs for16.7K. Sony is definitely out of Mind.
    I know that I got a different one than Sony but It’s Not Something sony can’t even think of giving to its customer at this price point. Which I decided to buy after hearing many sony 5.1 demos up to 50k price range trust me Sony is One Shit . They just want to loot Customers. While playing movie Transformers The Age of Extinction DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 512 Kbps audio the manger at Sony showroom said that movie is not sounding good on. 50k sony 5.1 is because the audio is of low quality. Poor Man does not have technical knowledge or is just protecting sony for his salary.
    One thing is for sure Not Going to buy SONY . Because it not like it used to be in OLD DaYS.
    Rest is Up to You Guys.

  3. Considering the price, Sony should have included other connectivity options such as microsd/usb playback. Also FM is missing.

  4. One can Buy Dolby supported 5.1 home theatre system in 15000 from local market.
    15000 for Bluetooth speaker is too much.Not worth it.
