The Sony HT-SS380 is a standard 5.1-channel home theater audio system with four satellite speakers, a central channel, a subwoofer, and a receiver. Together they output 1000W. It offers 1080p video playback of Blu-ray sources via an HDMI repeater (3 in, 1 out) that supports stand-by-pass through, 3D pass through, and the audio return channel (ARC). Other devices like DVD and CD players can also be hooked up to it. Also included is an iPhone & iPod docking station. Overall, the Sony HT-SS380 is a more barebones, entry-level model, especially when compared to the other three theater systems released alongside it—BDV-E780W, BDV-E580, and BDV-E280.
