The HW45ES (USA Model) does not have Bravia Sync. It is only on the HW65ES and higher models. I've researched it beforehand because it was a feature I wanted, but after finding out I'd have to...

If you have a 5.1 surround speaker system, what happens when you turn your head 180 degrees? Do the audio drivers then output sound through the rear speakers? I didn't think VR did that, and is why...

This is a very good idea and from the pictures it looks all the sharp points are tucked inside the frame so you may not need to worry about cloth tear when making a snug fit.

Audio is always treated as secondary for home theater and not synchronous. When is the last time you seen a commercial for speakers? Now, when was the last time you seen a commercial for a TV?

I'm assuming it'll be at whatever your speaker's efficiency is rated at. With the avr set at 0db, something like klipsch speakers will register a higher db than something like my aperion speakers.
