Summary: The AudioSystem exceeded my expectations. The clarity of the sound generated is awesome. Bass-wise too I think it is one the best SoundSystems out there. The upconverting capability of a normal DVD is quite appreciable. Normal DVD's too were rendered very well on my 46-inch Sony LCD TV. Only thing missing for me was number of HDMI inputs. Had there been multiple inputs it would have been one of my best purchases.
Summary: This is a great system especially for the price range. I have it hooked up via hdmi to my sony 40v2500 40" lcd tv. I still havnt read the book on configuring etc... but the sound is great for my current setup. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great home theater without wanting to spend a lot of $$$. Highly recommended if you have a Sony Bravia tv.
Summary: Overall I am very pleased with the sony davhdx500's sound. Very good for listening to cd's, dvd's and tuner. The video is very good. I use it with a Toshiba 65" dlp and get an excellent picture when it upconverts a standard dvd movie to 1080i. The system is very easy to set up. The speaker wires are color coded and have a plug in for the back of the box. The auto sound setup was easy and accurate.
Summary: System is designed for front installation in small room only. Speaker wires are short and terminated with proprietary connectors, which can not be purchased separately from Sony. For projector system installation with sound system at rear of room, speaker wire lengths are all wrong. Installation of longer, heavier gauge speaker wires would have been easy if the system used non-proprietary connectors, or the proprietary connectors could be purchased separately.
Summary: I have spent the last year on and off converting my existing garage to living and office space. The reward for the hard work was to set up a home theatre system. I searched for the past year and picked the Sony systems. My new 40" LCD Bravia with the theatre package is wonderful. The system is very easy to set up - I had wired my room already for surround sound speakers. Hook up took less than an hour and the speakers are light weight and easily hung from the wall.
Summary: I have the HDX501 (costco/sams club) which is this model with the wireless speakers and ipod dock. Sound quality is great. Assembly took 20 mins (keep a screwdriver handy), setup took less than 5 minutes. It auto calibrates the sound based on your speaker setup. HDMI control (HDCP) works with my Panasonic plasma, which means if I put a DVD into the Sony, the Panansonic TV switches to the HDMI input on the TV to start showing the DVD.
