Review of Sony DAV-IS50 Home Cinema System with Rear Wireless Speakers
27 February 2009
Conclusion: You can’t help but like the Sony DAV-IS50, with its smart styling and cute speakers, and very decent sound quality. The price of around £500 is not cheap, but if you want a unit that does everything the DAVIS50 does, and with such style, we can’t think of many other options. Rating:4/5
Pros: If you want an all-in-one system that is simple to set up, good looking, and very discreet, you won’t get much better. It makes an ideal home entertainment system for those people who are prepared to sacrifice a little performance for looks, style and those amazing tiny speakers.
Summary: 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.
Pros: Tiny and unobtrusive surround speakers, clear treble
Cons: Subwoofer is large and ugly, muddy bass and mid-range
