Summary: I have had this speaker system three years now and it's still running great. The sound is excellent and the included iPod Dock is great. I think that the 5 disc DVD changer is a little over the top (who needs that?) but I've found that I keep a couple favorite movies in there all the time and if I ever get bored of what's on tv can pull up one of my favorites without moving.
Summary: I really like my Sony Home Theater System. But i do wish I could have recieved the owners manual with it and also it had a lot of dents and scratches on it. Looks pretty worn but sounds great.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the product. The movies are better with the sounds that this home theater reproduces. This is not the last item in the line but have an excellent performance and the price is cheaper than others.
Summary: Pros...The Sony Bravia DAV-HDX285 has good ratings for sound quality and performance that blows other competitors out of the water (with the exception of Bose). If you want a good surround system at the fraction of the cost,check out this system. Cons... Read the manual carefully. (Not user friendly) unless you completely read the manual or have a basic knowledge of programming.
Summary: My husband's older Sony home theatre console blew up from a power surge and he wanted the same thing but its obslete; so we found this one, newer model, same play toys as the old system and he loves it!! Good value, great price!! Fast shipping!!
Summary: this system works very well. the speaker cables were used and one was too short but no problem. I tried to play blu ray but it would not play , papers say it should play in North America but it did not.
Summary: This is an OK unit for just listening to the radio, but everything else seems difficult. There is no real shuffle, which is how I listen to the majority of my music. You can only shuffle within a single CD, not among the 5 in the changer. And everything from inserting CD's to programming radio stations cumbersome. Also, I've had this for less than 6 months and it has just stopped working 3 times already.
