Summary: I picked this up at a garage sale for $15. What can I say, I am more than happy with it, I'm blown away by it! For a unit that was made in 1998 I can't believe how new it feels. The sound, the hardware, and the user interface are all top notch. I lucked out, in that the owner hasn't used it in over a decade. It just sat in a closet. Can you imagine that!? I currently have my DVD player, PC, and XBOX 360 running through this system and it hits home runs with all of them.
Summary: I bought this system or one just like almost ten years ago and still works great. I plan to buy a new system in the next few years and keep this one in the bed room as an extra one. The only thing I can say bad about this system is after 10 years the remote is wearing out. The bass is not bad but if you want real boom you need to upgrade. I gave it a f4 just because I like bass and it just did not cut it for me. If you don't want a lot of deep bass this is perfect.
Summary: I felt that I got an excellent product package (DVD player with surround sound) for a good price. I have greatly enjoyed the quality of picture and sound. Once you've watched/listened to a sci-fi movie with DVD and surround sound, you'll never want to go back.
Pros: speaker wires (wish they had wireless speakers!)
Cons: speaker wires (wish they had wireless speakers!)
Summary: I really enjoy this thing. It's small, simple to install, easy to use, even my girlfriend could figure it out! The DTS sound is awesome! True it would be nice to hook up a tape deck, but really who has that anymore...and it would be nice to play CDR's but you can hook up a CD changer or other CD player, no big deal! I would recomend this thing to everyone.
Summary: The thought of buying a dvd player with digital funtions had been haunting me for sometime. I looked into various models of dvds in the town but nothing to satisfy me. Then one day I saw this sleek dvd palyer with funtions that was more than one could anticipate according to its size. however, it was there with dts, dolby and everything. Its the best selection one can make for ones home.
Summary: I had never purchased any DVD products or home theater components, so I was not sure would satisify my urge for a good home theater and be simple enough that I could easily connect it and use it. The Sony Dream System, while not the most powerful system available, is certainly capable of producing all of the quality sound (whether Dolby 5.1 or DTS) that I need. The picture is excellent as well.
Summary: I was in the market for a DVD/Stereo system, but didn't know what to get. I did alot of online research as well. I ended up coming down to three products, the panasonic equivalent and also the SAVA-900. The latter was beyond my price range, and the Panasonic didn't have the decoding options that this Sony did. Here are my bullets: Decoding for 5.1, DTS, etc. Exceptional for "loaded" DVD's. Remote - slick remote, could be backlit, but works well. Easy function.
Summary: I want to tell everyone about this great dvd hometheater. The inclusion of a complete set of surround speakers is what gives this Sony the edge over everything else! The sound is great for a small to medium rooms, but for large rooms, it is not going to be so interesting because Sony DAV-S300 speakers aren't that strong to fill the whole room.The lack of an RGB output is a surprise, however the S-Video will suffice.Everything in that product is excellent, but there's no...
