I paid £129 when Sony had to clear them. If they ever went down to £99.00 I would buy another one.

It's wishful thinking but you never know with Curry's clearance, I'd also probably buy it at £129

​what's the sound quality like?
Really cool looking bit of kit, if it dropped below £100 I'd probably buy one, though not sure exactly what I'd do with it as I tend to listen to most of my music at the PC.

That said I wonder how good it would be as a PC sound system or even in from of a TV as a sound bar type solution? Would imagine the lights would be distracting with it in front of a screen unless they can be turned off....
Looks like a pimped out Corsa lol

Sound quality is superb. I have the Sony htx t1 sound bar and Sony hts t3 bar too. But wanted something with more bass. At the time myself and my brother in law plus his 5 mates bought them and we all love the sound from it. Plus nfc one touch to my z3 plus my Sony hi res Walkman

You can't connect it to your TV. You need to buy the newer version to do it. The Mhc v7d retails around £400.
It looks like they are bringing out a newer version of this soon... Your text here

Or if you really want to show off you could buy this 1500w beast.... complete with strobe lights http://interhifi.hu/image/data/sony%202015/SONY%20MHC-V7D.jpg

I don't see why you couldn't, the spec states 3.5mm jack and rca connectors. I know optical is generally preferred as a digital connection but isn't essential....

The only thing you could do is investigate a bit further. From my knowledge it was not possible. Also prefer my sound bars for the tv's.

​awesome thanks.
Bass on these are great and so clear I treated myself to one of these last xmas,great for bluetooth from your mobile.
just to confirm, i have 2 of them and they both connected to the TV and used as home cinema, they have a party mode connection so you can connect as many of them as u wish, great base and great 3d sound when watching tv.lights can be turned off if you wish
I've got two reserved
Sony generally have nice quality stuff, but I find these speakers to offer quite poor quality compared to their more civilised stuff. The bass in particular has quite poor depth and doesn't reach very low. BUT, at this price, a lovely garden/party speaker!
I guess you can use a Chromecast audio with this ?
Can you turn the lights off so you don't look like a 14 y/old Corsa loving chav ?
Lol

​Lol I own two of them and a stereo 32 band eq, and must agree the sound needs work to get them sounding open and more dynamic but boy when tuned correctly they are quite beastly, I use them for my mobile DJ rig as the frequency response is still allot better than similarly priced PA speakers given good range to 37hz before rolling off steeply.
This piece is a monster, I was going to buy one till I seen it up close, it's massive!!

you can turn the lights off. But i prefer them on plus my nephews and nieces love the flashing lights. This is a quality Sony product not a vauxhall product. I drive a Audi S4 and i have one.

Yup



It's not that big, but how can you have a 2 subwoofers off that size in a small box? My old golf had 4 12" cerwin vega's in a box that was a lot bigger than this.
i saw this in currys a few months ago.....gave in a few weeks after and bought from Amazon for 179. Its great...but it is huge so you may want to check size if your thinking of buying....im tempted to buy one for upstairs now

The light show is pretty useless to be honest, I never use that feature! Speaker itself is great.
Better SQ available for this money unless you require 500W lol
Sound is really good but God they are so chavvy looking.
HEAT!

Great unit for the price, the new new version looks a bit more less playstation 1 and more
pleasing to the eye ;-)

Well I never.
A phrase originally coined to depict prostitution has been 'adopted' by those interested in modifying their motors!
