For those of you that have one of the applicable tvs, sony.co.nz has the wireless subwoofer to match it for a very good price of $200 rather than the $500 or $600 it has been retailing at.

Its the swrbf100 wireless subwoofer.
I ordered one yesterday to go with my kdl60w850b.
Cheers

This arrived this week, and the difference is like night and day.
Not as pure as a home theatre system but with the subwoofer positioned behind the listener it gives a pseaudo surround effect.
Dont think I'll be turning the home theatre on as often as I used to. :-)

I wondered if anyone would ever buy one.
The reason you may get a pseudo surround sound effect... is many wireless subs from soundbars etc have quite a bit of the midrange pushed to them. It's how they try to improve the dialogue, but at the same time, you suddenly get the human voice coming from the subwoofer. So basically, try and place it front and centre.

I would never have purchased at the orignal $600 price tag.
$200 is a brilliant price.
