    850watts? Really?

    I know that's Sony's claim but the manual actually states the power consumption of the thing as 170w.......

    Locked to regions?

    Since my collection of DVDs is from both EU and AUS, what's the chance that half of my collection would be locked out? Ditto with the different region set-up with BluRay.

    I'd be interested in this set-up since even if St. Steve does finally release BluRay on a Mac Mini, there's no way of getting HD sound onto my current (Logitech Z-5500) sound system.

      to be honest

      and im not sounding rude. that speaker package wouldnt do HD audio any justice.

      to me this seems like a step back from their first dvd+ amp combos. ok the amp was basic but it handled audio switching pretty well for a cheapo package (im on my 3rd home cinema setup now, but ive been into it for 10+ years)

      but personally i wouldnt go with anything sony that plays optical these days. their optical units always die far too early.

    Stay in

    That's right, stay in, safe in your own home. Don't venture out, socialise, connect with others and see live entertainment or make your own. Just consume. Do you really need this?

    I love the backplate. So it's not like an Apple device that's almost as nice at the back as it is at the front, but it's like the engineers are answering the question of why it needs a noisy fan: because it has Java!

    (though we have a Philips VCR/DVD combi that has a noisy fan without using Java)
