2.1-channel surround HTIB system; elegant design; tiny speakers; dual 6-inch subwoofer; HDMI output; plays SACDs; simplified cable hookup; includes setup DVD.

Virtual-surround effect limited to a small sweet spot; not a multidisc changer; movies sound better than music; high style comes with a high price.

Sony's DAV-X1 virtual-surround Dream System can unleash a full, enveloping sound from DVDs, but it's less satisfying with CDs.

Sony's Dream Systems have set the pace for stylish home-theater-in-a-box systems (HTIBs) for years. Now, with its new DAV-X1 Platinum DVD Dream System, the company's designers have downsized the formula. Sony has added new features, such as...

Alot less money than the BOSE 2.1 System that cost $899.00!.. Excellent sound, great for HDTV's which don't have great built in speakers

The speakers are controlled by 1 wire

Sony's galactic empire employs several dedicated design facilities worldwide, which probably goes some way to explaining why you simply cannot fault the look and feel of the DAV-X1

The Sony DAV-X1 is kids play to rig up with composite, S-Video and component outputs

Not a particularly accomplished system in terms of surround sound but the DAV-X1's picture is great

Sony's DAV-X1V is a stylish 2.1 virtual surround system aimed at those seeking a home cinema solution without the fuss of additional speakers and cabling taking over the room

Good set of features, Impressive connectivity

Too much MPEG noise, 'Surround sound' not really delivered

Good on paper, but unfortunately not quite so good in reality

3 speakers, 1 sub 2 tweets, DVD upscaling for high def viewing HDMI out S-VIDEO out and in great system I love it.

I wanted a surround sound system without all the speakers, but with the same quality, I got it with the Sony DAV-x1. It looks perfect in my living room and when guest hear the sound quality they can not believe it iscoming from only three speakers

I would say the cord length, a little to long

I bought this 2.1 Surrround system because I have space constraints and did not want to run rear speakers of a conventional 5.1 system. Well I was totally disappointed in especially the controls for bass,treble and subwoofer tone. They are almost...

It looks good

Unit is underpowered

Really did my research with this one so believe me when I say that for $299 at Circuit City is is a STEAL of a DEAL!!!!! HDMI, up gradeing to 1080i, and really nice theater sound. For the money the BOSE or Harmon Kardon just wernt worth the extra money...

BIG THEATER SOUND IN SMALL PACKAGE

BASE NOT AS GOOD AS IT COULD BE

Consumer review by:

Sony DAV-X1

 

I have bought this system five days ago. The sound from DVDs is really awesome, particularly for such a minimal system with only three speakers. I have a small room for the HDTV and the volume is more than ample for the purpose. The hook-up is very...

Great sound from DVD

Less than satisfactory result from CD sound
