I've heard bad things about the Sony and I can't imagine golf-ball sized speakers sounding anywhere near acceptable.


What about something like Orb Audio's speakers? They're fairly compact and most report they sound pretty good for the size.

Well, to be honest, both.



But I mean that particular system doesn't seem to have much in the way of good reviews. And speakers that small have to have some compromises.


(Actually, I don't think Sony is that bad, but I would buy speakers from someone else. Not Bose, though.)

I just purchased this system. I like it so far. Those speakers pack quite a punch for being so small.

I just bought this system a week ago and finished setting it up 2 days ago. This system is great for an apartment or smaller environment. The speakers are soo cute *cough* I mean awesome! They actually sound pretty good. The system came with a microphone that is used to calibrate the speakers when you turn it on for the first time. I have found one kinda big complaint already and I have email tech support at Sony. The system fails to display an image when playing dvds from 20th Century Fox (Horton Hears a Who, X-Men 3.....). Sound is there and sometimes you will get a menu screen flickering to life, but for the most part, a blank screen. All other dvds have been playing just fine as well every blu-ray I have thrown at it (I have tried about a dozen dvds and 6 different brays). I will of course try more as time goes on.


So, in short, the speakers in my opinion are excellent for a smaller environment. If you have a huge collection of dvds you are attached to....be prepared for some dissapointment. 20th Century Fox makes up about 1/8 of my collection and so far none of them have played properly. (only 4 have been tried so far and all have failed, I do not believe it is a coincidence) Hopefully Sony will respond soon with a fix. Oh, and the firmware is up to date on it.
