Sony DAV-TZ230


really easy to set up and excellent sound, the overall sound level in the room is reduced but the listening quality is greatly improved. No need to have the TV on loud when you are sitting at the other end of the room.

Sony DAV-TZ230


You can pay a lot more for a home-theatre system, and overall this has a pretty good sound for the money. It's 600 watts, so you could certainly annoy the neighbours with it. DVD's in 5.1 sound awesome, though you may need to tweak the individual...

The main problem I have with this system is that there are no inputs, so you can't plug in any external sound source apart from the TV. It's a real shame about this as I can't get all my other gadgets going through it. I bought it mainly for 5.1 DVD's...
