Sony's BDV-N7100W all-in-one home theater system offers high-def Blu-ray playback, instant access to a wide variety of music and movies from the Internet, and an easy, wireless connection to tablets and smartphones for even more audio options.
The receiver's built-in Blu-ray player delivers a stunning high-definition picture that'll look great on your HDTV. Enjoy exciting 3D images with a compatible TV when you play 3D Blu-ray discs. This system supports the highest-quality surround sound formats, like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio, for realistic wraparound sound to match the picture. And built-in Bluetooth® compatibility lets you easily stream music from many portable devices.
The 'N7100W lets you stream online movies from services like Netflix® and Hulu Plus™, and music from services like Pandora® Internet radio right to your living room via a broadband Internet connection. Now you'll never run out of things to watch or listen to. To get started, just hook the receiver up to your existing home network with an Ethernet cable or use the built-in Wi-Fi®. (Subscription required for some services.)
Some living rooms present a real challenge when it comes to installing the rear speakers in a surround sound setup. The 'N7100W comes with a wireless amplified module that makes connecting the two back speakers a whole lot simpler. Plug the module into an outlet close to where you'll place the back speakers. Then connect the speakers with the included wire. The best part is there'll be no more wires running from the front to the back of your room.
You'll be able to finish your installation with just a few simple connections. Plug the player/receiver into your TV with an HDMI cable, and connect the three remaining speakers and subwoofer using the included speaker wire. Dual HDMI inputs add the convenience of switching between Blu-ray and two more HD sources.
Enjoy rich, robust sound that puts you right in the middle of your favorite movies, TV shows, and video games. Powered home theater systems come with speakers and a subwoofer plus the amplification to drive them. Many of these systems feature low-profile consoles and ultra-compact speakers for minimal visual clutter. Some include a built-in Blu-ray/DVD player for enjoying movie and concert discs.
Very good all-in-one home theater. Front speakers are relatively weak for a large room. The sub is adequate, I wish I had a volume control as other subs.
Pros: Good sound quality for a all-in-one
Cons: Weak front speakers for a large room
Integrated Blu-ray Player: The Sony BDV-N7100W home theater system features a built-in Blu-ray disc player which supports a variety of disc types; BD-ROM, BD-3D, BD-R/RE, DVD-R/DVD-RW, DVD+R/RW, CD-Audio, CD-R/RW, and SACD. Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HD systems. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 54 Mbps. Blu-ray Disc discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:
Note: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet. Occasionally, Sony may release updated firmware for this unit that may add or improve the way a feature operates. These updates are available free of charge. This unit is capable of checking the firmware automatically when connected to the Internet via broadband connection. The tested system contained firmware version M17.R.0104 with an immediate update for firmware version M17.R.0124 (as of 7/4/2013).
Quick Start: Quick Start speeds up the load time on movies, so discs start faster after they're inserted into the Blu-ray Home Theater System. The Sony BDV-N7100W has a start-up time of approximately 5.3 seconds in Quick Start mode (25.7 seconds in normal mode). In Quick Start mode, it takes approximately 29.1 seconds for a Blu-ray disc to begin playback (27.1 seconds in normal mode).
Note: The Start Up/Play Back Time tests were started with the Blu-ray system initially turned off & in standby mode. The Start Up Time test was stopped when the unit's Home Menu screen appeared. The Play Back Time test was stopped when the Blu-ray disc began playback.
SACD: Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform of music. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over 120dB across the audible frequency range - some 64 times higher resolution then CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just cannot hear on a normal CD.
