SC-BTX70 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from wish it came with the wireless rear speakers
Date published: 2010-05-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but good I looked for a blu ray home cinema to fit on a book shelf. This is the best. I recommend the optional wireless rear speakers: it imporoves the sound. Be careful with the internet firmware update: my system broke down and I had to do a hard -reset; which isn't described in the manual. However, I am looking forward to more internet related functionality: is internet radio an option?
