Summary: I purchased my first surround system in 2007 and , having read some reviews, went for the Sony DAV-DZ230. Nearly 5 years on and I remain very content; the reason for the review is that the CD/DVD is starting to jam but the very helpful Sony support site has suggested all that is needed is to clean...
Summary: Who is the genius person at Sony who thought that what was essentially an amplifier to play sound, did not require any audio in port? After days I am still scratching my head as to how I can get the sound to come out of this thing from my Sky HD+ box and Bravia Sony TV.
Great overall, but would be better if it had an optical cable output.

Excerpt: The unit is quite slim line so you are able to place it nearly anywhere, and also the slim line makes it look good. The speakers itself are quite attractive, and are really good, they perform quite well even at loud volumes. The sound quality is great.
Summary: Please can someone tell me how to connect this Sony DAV DZ230 to an LG TV so that you have surround sound on the TV!? Someone told me to buy an RCA cable, which i did - but it appears that there's no corresponding spaces for these on the back of the Sony?
Summary: I have had this for 12 months now and really need to review the product. First of all if you have SKY HD don't get it...it doesn't have a digital coax' so useless for the surround sound. CD playback is poor. Picture quality is OK.
Summary: good picture quality and reasonable sound on dvd but messy sound quality when playing audio cds.why do we have to have fussy audio setup menus with default settings just put a bass,treble and balance knobs on the damn thing and let me choose the sound i want.
