My Comments

Those of you who are based in Sydney, Australia may find this of interest if you want to score a bargain on some of the Sony equipment that I reviewed on this site.

According to the article, the Bing-Lee-operated “Sony Centres” in Sydney’s central business district and in Drummoyne are clearing out the stock in order to downsize to smaller “concept stores”.

Here, it would be a good idea to have a look at the reviews listed above because these may help you think whether the products are a real bargain or not and whether they would suit your needs. This is because it is so easy to think that a product offered at that steal of a price is a bargain but you find out that it isn’t.

This could be a chance to kit out your home network for network-enabled entertainment and you may find that some of the equipment may help you “cut your teeth” on this concept.

For example, I would recommend the Sony CMT-MX750Ni as being a small music system that can play from CDs, USB memory sticks, your legacy iPhone or iPod Touch or home network as well as tune in to FM, DAB+ or Internet radio. Similarly, those Sony network speakers like the SA-NS410 could work as an auxiliary speaker / Internet radio for the kitchen or the deck or you may get your claws on the BDP-S390 Blu-Ray player for that “Big W special” TV set so you have Internet-hosted or network-hosted content on that TV as well as watch Blu-Ray discs.

I would also keep your eyes peeled for the BRAVIA large-screen TVs or any of the network-enabled home theatre receivers if you are wanting to improve the AV setup in any of the lounge areas in your home. The higher-end Blu-Ray home theatre packages like the BDV-N990W which have more than one HDMI socket would suit those setups where you have Foxtel or a “personal-TV” device like TiVo and you want the sound through the home theatre with proper decoding for surround content.

As for the VAIOs, I would consider the VAIO S Series as a “best bet” if you want something that can yield high performance in a compact 13” chassis that you can travel with a lot of the time. Similarly a VAIO E or EJ Series at the liquidation prices may appeal to you if you want that performance laptop as a 15” or 17” laptop. The VAIO J Series “all-in-one” could appeal as a “first computer” or for anyone who wants to get their claws on a touchscreen all-in-one desktop for cheap.

If you do go to these sales, this can help you with choosing the right Sony equipment to add to your home network.
