This home cinema setup could be the ideal way to upgrade your disc player and sound system at the same time.

Light on the wallet but heavy on performance, this Sony one-box Blu-ray rig promises great things

Sony BDV-E300 review

 

At this price, this Sony Blu-ray system quite simply sits at the top of pile - this needs to be on your audition list

Scale and seamlessness combined with precision, detail and attack ; stunning pictures by the standards of the class ; great looks and sturdy build

At this money, nothing

If you’re after a system that does it all, all-round ability is more crucial than ever, and the Sony is the best all-rounder in its class

Sony BDV-E300

 

The Sony BDV-E300 is a Blu-ray home cinema system with 5.1 speakers and a total of 1000W audio power. It supports optional wireless rear speakers, meaning you can increase the surround setup to 7.1 channels. An Ethernet slot and USB port (for storage...

While the Sony BDV-E300 isn’t hugely impressive on the feature front, it hits its marks more than adequately when it comes to the nitty gritty of audiovisual performance. Factor in the easy setup and it makes for a truly solid all-round home cinema...

Sony BDV-E300

 

Blu-ray home theatre in a box solutions like Sony\'s BDV-E300 are reasonably priced and easy to setup.

Auto-calibration of the system is brilliant. It offers a balanced surround sound experience.

Its sub-woofer is a little under powered and the DM port is locked to proprietary accessories.

Sony BDV-E300

 

You trust Sony, so why not let them entertain you in up to 10 rooms with the BDV-E300 multiroom system?

With its latest home cinema offerings (which should drop this June), Sony takes a step ahead of the competition by going past great image and sound to offer a bunch of cool new features. Among the stellar features on the Sony BDV-E300 are Wi-Fi...

Sony BDV-E300

 

It enhances standard definition DVD's, I can get full surround sound from television digi box when connecting through it, can play iPod through docking station supplied.

Casing of speakers look cheap, not as easy to setup surround sound as DAV-DZ260 DVD player.

Sony BDV-E300

 

Excellent surround sound but not when using the radio. Very easy to update software.

Intermittent failure of DVD / Bluray function in less than 2 years after several attempts by authorised service agent to remedy this (including a replacement BD Drive Assembly) failed and I was told it was better I cut my losses as it could be a fault...
