Expert review by: Campbell Simpson (goodgearguide.com.au)

Sony DAV-IS50

 

A space-friendly home theatre system.

Tiny and unobtrusive surround speakers, clear treble

Subwoofer is large and ugly, muddy bass and mid-range

The DAVIS50 isn’t invisible by any stretch of the imagination — the subwoofer sticks out like a sore thumb — but it does allow a lot of flexibility in placement, which might make it attractive to some buyers.

Sony DAV-DZ260

 

Fantastic performance producing a true cinema experience in a relatively small room. Compares very favourably indeed with a friends home cinema system which cost three times as much.Very easy to set up. Absolutely delighted.

None to report so far after 1 months use.

Excellent value for money. Great surround sound from both DVD and TV. Good extras - USB for photos etc, mini jack for MP3 player. Removes need for separate Hi Fi system for most people. Speakers not obtrusive.

Not found any
