Not worth the money - Dissapointing considering coming from SONY
First of all, on the technical side of things, straight out of the box the speakers are 6Ω. If you know a little about sound systems, you would know that good speakers are 8Ω and above. 6Ω means that the amplifier does not have enough power to give to the speakers so they scale down the speakers in order to compensate.
Secondly, the bass sounds very bad. No near as good as my previous sound system. Very dull and flat not much treble at all.
Thirdly, no options to set equalizer settings, you are not able to make any adjustments whatsoever for the bass, treble, or even to adjust the level of the rear speakers. The only thing you can adjust is the volume!
Apparently this system comes with a 'special' microphone which you put in the middle of your room and it adjusts the system automatically. I did that and to be honest I would rather have been able to adjust it myself.
I've seen some reviews that say this sound system has crystal clear sound comparing to my old system. Well guys your old system must have been a Hi-Fi stereo, because I had a 5.1 system from 'mission' which are made in England and I tell you this Sony is rubbish compared to it.
You haven't heard good quality sound if you think this is the best sounding system.
Sony has been going downhill in recent years.
Looks good, 4x HDMI ports, nothing else really....avoid this system
Expensive, Crappy bass, 6Ω speakers below average, Feels and sounds cheap
An impressive array of feature for a HTIB type home theatre system.
Although it has a very "power 90's" look to it, the Muteki system actually sounds pretty decent. Infact, for the money we paid for it, its downright amazing. Once setup correctly, it does a great job at giving you that cinematic experience.
The subs do not seem to be setup for purely sub bass. The crossover point for these are set at a rather high 150Hz which is almost twice the recommended point for home theatre. Unfortunately this means the the bass becomes muddy and boomy instead of clear, tight and with a punch.
There is a lack of e.q. settings, so those who like to tweak their systems will be disappointed.
This system is load! Good for the budget if you shop around, but not the best when paying RRP
*7.2 surround sound
*Decodes an impressive amount of surround formats
*Lack of equalizer settings
