SONY Speakers


Hi all

SONY Speakers Anyone?


For some reason Sony India has totally discontinued their earlier line of Hi-fi separates including Sony Speakers for Home audio, may be finding that there is not enough demand for them in India as compared with Home Theaters and TV sets.

However in the international market, Sony continues to sell Speakers at remarkably low prices which seem to be decent enough for the price level and are bought by many building their Hi-fi systems on a budget. The reviews are pretty good. Some of these Sony Speakers are:

Floor Standing Speakers - SS-F5000
Floor Standing Speakers - SS-F6000
Bookshelf Speakers - SS-B3000

I wonder if anyone knows if Sony Speakers (other than those specifically meant for 5.1 Home Theaters) are still being sold anywhere in the country. if yes please share information about the source. Anyone who already owns them is welcome to share his / her opinion about any of these Sony Speakers. Thanks.

Where are you getting SS-F5000 from? Are you importing them? I have read reviews that they are good for small budgets. You cannot expect too much from it.

Recent models sold by sony are not so impressive.

I own a Sony HT DDW880 and paid Rs.25000 almost 2 years back. I think they are discontinued. It is a AVR based HT with 6 Satellites and One Sub-Woofer. It works awsome for Movies. You have to hear it to believe. But music is okay.

Thanks for your response.
I am only looking for Sony Speakers for use with an Integrated Stereo Amplifier for playing music and not as a part of any Home Theater. These speakers are available world wide and the purpose of my post is to find out if these are also available in any part of India or if anybody already owns them. Sony India used to sell them in this country some years back but have, for some reason, stopped selling them here now.

Which Amp you are using. There are so many other brands available in the market which are better than Sony.

Definitely and I know that. However looking at the amazingly low price (as low as $100 or Rs.4600 for floorstanders) of these Sony Speakers and the excellent reviews by many users on various other Hi-fi forums, it might be worthwhile to consider / audition them.

I have recently bought a Marantz PM6003 Amp from the UK and have shortlisted Monitor Audio Bronze BX2 / Deli Lektor 2/ Tannoy Mercury V4 to pair with it. I also intend to buy a Marantz CD6003 CD Player and Rega RP1 Turntable if I can find these at competetive prices here. Sadly in India all these products are sold at 1.5 to 2 times the prevailing international prices - which is a discouraging factor while considering to buy from within India.

Re: SONY Speakers

Hello,

I have been using following Sony speakers for a long time now in a 7.1 set up for my 340 sq ft living room. Sources being PS3 80 GB with move, Denon 1940CI, TS HD+, Bravia 40W300A LCD

2 X floor standers (2 X 6.5' bass drivers, 1 X 4.5' mid range and 1' tweeter, 180w RMS, 89DB sensitivity, Freq res 40 Hz to 25k Khz)
1 X Center - 120W full range ( 65 Hz to 25k Hz, 89 DB)
4 X Surr - 120 watts, single driver, full range ( 75 Hz to 25k Khz, 86 DB)
1 active sub - 150 watt, 12' driver, front firing (30 Hz to 200 Hz adjustable, volume, phase and freq control. UMC has set it up at 40 Hz point)

Earlier these were driven by Denon 2106 amp (100 watt / channel) and now driven by UPA-7, UMC-1 as pre-amp. To my personal liking, I like the way they sound and best part was comments from my wife that they are sounding more musical with UMC/UPA as compared to Denon amp. Usage is 50:50 music (all kinds) / movies.

Had purchased these in December 2006 from Sony world, Aundh, Pune and now these are not available anywhere in India (dealers & website too).

Dont know how helpful this will be but just thought of sharing.

Thanks!

Emotiva spearates will definately sound better than that Denon model.
Where did you get Emotiva products and what price?
