I heard it in store and it sounded good for what it is.
Any one noticed how their refurb prices have shot up in the last fortnight? A TV i was looking at was £499 now its £849.
Also a speaker unit I bought has gone up from £74 to £129.
Compared to sonos beam

This was £119 last month
I have it and love it. If you can get a true 5.1/7.1 surround system then I would take that anyday. But this does an excellent job on games, TVs and Movies. I played the start of Final Fantasy 7 Remake and it did create a really good sound space, I even looked left at one point wondering what the sound was!
Cheaper than retail new, but not really cheaper than used. Cold from me.
Great shame too, looking for a decent Soundbar, and this looks decent.

Just be patient. Same thing happened when I was looking to buy a Blu-ray player a couple of months back.

Prices increased for a week or so then dropped like a stone. Likely just looking to make the eventual discount seem bigger.
Does anyone know how this would compare to the Yamaha YSP-1600?
£239 from some places - as people have said, the price will drop in a week or so
Regarding the pricing, just looked at price of refurb Sony MP3 playet NW-A45
I paid £74.99 but its now listed at £149. The newer model is only £10 more at Currys or Amazon for brand new!
I’m selling mine £190 with warranty looks as new we didn’t get to use it in our bedroom as daughter sleeps in next room so we can’t have it on loud. my biggest regret lmao paid £350 from Compton and Moore
Bought it when it was on offer for £129 (refurb). It was in practically like new condition. Nice clear sound, punchy bass, looks good under the tv. Surround sound is ok, nowhere near to the proper 5.1/7.1 system, but those costs much more.
For £129 I'm very happy with it, but wouldn't buy it for £219.
As said has been as low as £119 I want one but waiting
Had this and sent it back, sounds terrible.
I was contemplating buying one from either sony direct center or s/h.
Read a lot of reviews some praised it others said it was OK but it was limited.
The thing that put me off was the lack of a proper subwoofer.
I ended up buying a sony ht-x9000f second hand off ebay.
I really rate the 9005, great bass and pretty good quality sound, it never gets harsh at moderate volumes.
The surround sound is a little hit and miss on boardcast but sounds good on blu rays
I cannot decide between this and the Samsung hw-q60r.
Samsung is closer to a true 5.1 but doesn't recognise atmos, whereas this Sony does but not sure if it has the chops to do the audio as well!
Of course I'd love a Samsung hw-q70r as that accepts atmos and is an amazing soundbar, but can't seem to find it less than 450 anywhere and I can't really go higher than 350.

I'm looking at the Q70R too and also the SONY Z9F. Where have you seen the Q70R for 450?
