Sony DAVS500

Rita A. Kurth "RAKurth", Amazon
2 February 2009
  • Summary: This unit was a replacement for one that was stolen out of our fifth-wheel trailer. We are hoping it works as well as the original unit. We were very pleased with the DAVS500 unit and were happy to find an almost exact unit.

The Best Compact Home Cinema Ever (DAVS500)

Hamad Al Hamad, Amazon
28 July 2003
  • Summary: I own this Jewel that has DTS (Digital Theater Sound) and as usual DD5.1. I own it for 2 years now and I am so happy with it, it entertains me like I am in a theater. Delivers a pure sound and over 250 watts all 5 satallite speakers with a booster woofer. The Remote Control has everything in it even the open/close button.

Great starter system

V. Santiago "vernonsantiago", Amazon
14 June 2003
  • Summary: I first bought this about 2 1/2 years, my first HTS (Home theater system). Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS, SACD, plays vcd's. Only 280 watts, and does not have a Coaxial digital input, Which I found out I need to hear TV shows in Dolby Digital 5.1, becuase my cable provider only has a Coaxial Digital out on it's box. If you have Direct TV then you are set.

Highly Overrated

Steve C, Amazon
5 February 2003
  • Summary: 1. To call the remote control unit finicky would be an understatement of note. The buttons are extremely poorly arranged and many are almost too small to press. Furthermore, the buttons are slow to respond requiring a second or third press (you may think you are pressing a button but in fact unless pressed extremely hard, your key-press is not being registered by the unit).

Exactly What I need

WW2 READER "GLUJANO", Amazon
14 May 2002
  • Summary: Look... 1.I did need a good quality Home Theater 2.Dolby Digital, 5.1Ch 3.For a little room (5 meters square ) 4.Low price ( If you compare about the DVD+AMPLIFIER+SPEAKERS ) 5.VCD Functions to play my home videos ( burned in a PC ) 6.Strong volume but not enough to have problems with the neighborhood ( and my wife ) 7.With an In-plug for the VCR. Then I compared the price for a Home Theater like Sony 875 with multi IN/OUT's, Speakers system with 500w or more..

Hey, it has a DVD player! 1 good thing, yeah!

Michael John Gariti "MJG", Amazon
7 May 2002
  • Summary: Oh man, this system makes me sick, because the {store} said it would do just about everything it doesn't. Have a gander... 1.Dolby DIGITAL Sound: OK, my DVDs are in DD! But wait...nothing else is!?! Manual to the rescue: The DVD player is DD, but only the DVD player. Digital components (XBOX, DTV, etc.) are not. I'd expect more from SONY, even the {generic brands} decode everything! 2.

Great Mid-level Unit With Outstanding Sound & Quality!

TReno, Amazon
15 December 2001
  • Summary: This is great sounding system. If you have a large living room installation, it isn't right for you, however. Get the next system up from Sony with the powered sub-woofer. That said, if you are going to be using this system in an average size den or entertainment room (like, say 12'x15' or 15'x15') or bedroom, it is perfect! The system has worked flawlessly for me. Installation was the easiest I have ever done, thanks to Sony's making all connections color-coded.

Awesome Sound!!!!

D S, Amazon
24 November 2001
  • Summary: This home theater really makes you feel like you're in the real movie theater, only without having to leave the house! The Dolby 5.1 sound rumbled through the whole house (even got the dog excited). You'll need to pick up extra cables to hook it up to your satellite system or VCR, and if you have both, get splitters to hook up the TV's audio out to go through the DVD as well (there are only enough ins & outs for two components).

A great priced syatem that is f the usual Sony superior standard

Dave24, Dooyoo
27 January 2010
  • Excerpt: This Sony dvd player is actually a complete system. It combines a dvd player, surround sound system, cd player and radio. All of these features are some how packaged into a silver aluminium case. The system has s master embossed into the top of the unit which is Sony's amplifier system. With an amplifier in the back as well the unit boasts a lot of potential, but does it work? Well yes it does, but that's an understatement its actually brilliant.

Sony DAVS500

  • Excerpt: "I have had this system for 5 years now have been really pleased with my purchase. At the time of purchase I think I should have shopped around because I ended up paying a lot of money. However you do get what you pay for. The system itself looks very good and the sound picture quality are great. I think it is the sound and picture quality what maybe justifies the price. Listening to normal CD's the music is crisp, clean and very clear. The movie ...
  • Pros: Great Pictures and Sound, Remote
  • Cons: Cables, no scart socket
