Sony HT-SS360 Home Theater System Review

With 1000 watts of power pumped through 5 speakers and a subwoofer, a slim receiver with 3 HDMI inputs, and an affordable price, the Sony HT-SS360 sounds too good to be true.

What You Need To Know

  • Each satellite Speaker is only 6" high and 3" deep.
  • The center channel is even smaller.
  • The subwoofer isnt' very big either at just over a foot tall.
  • The receiver is very slim, and includes 3 HDMI outputs, 3 digital optical inputs, 3 stereo AV inputs but no analog video inputs.
  • The lack of an analog video input means you'll have to separate the cables, plug video directly into your TV and plug audio into the receiver. This kind of sucks if you have a component or composite source like a standard 360 or Wii.
  • The set-up is still very confusing, though the physical set up of plugging in speakers is nicely color-coded and simple.
  • The sound set-up is hard: no menu display so you have to guess as to what each selection does.
  • Auto-calibration mic is supposed to give you the best sound, but we had to manually adjust each speaker levels and that's not easy.
  • At least it sounds good! Lows and highs are great, the mids get a little lost since the subwoofer is so powerful but overall, you can get a good mix.

    After reading my Playstaion magazine again and then verifying the info on sonystyle.com the actual msrp of the HT-SS360 is $349.99. Its still sounds like a good deal to me though.
