The contents are what you would expect—a DVD player, five speakers, and a subwoofer. The speakers are in three different sizes—fronts, a center, and surrounds—and they weigh less than 2 pounds each. Their construction is decent and solid for the price,...

The DAV-DX255 could act as a good small-apartment or dorm-room initiation into home theater. With the added bonus of SACD compatibility, it could also help foster an interest and appreciation of high-quality sound playback.

Good value, easy to use, great sound. Only knock is that there is no video in so you can't have it hooked up in-line with your cable/satellite receiver and just do a pass-thru like with a VCR. I had to buy a separate A/B/C video switch.

Product Specifications

The DAV-DX255, a five-disc, slot loading DVD 5.1 surround sound system provides a flexible way to set-up the system to achieve optimal performance. With Sony's multi-speaker formation function, you can select from seven different speaker formations. Whether all of the speakers are kept in the front of the room or in a more traditional surround sound system formation the DAV-DX255 system can be adjusted to conform to the listening environment. All of these speaker formations are selectable from an on-screen display detailing speaker placement. The DCAC technology ensures that speakers are optimized for the room configuration providing a rich and enveloping sound. Additionally, this powerful 1000-watt home theater system includes an audio input for connecting and listening to digital music stored on portable audio players. For improved compressed audio clarity, Sony's digital signal processing circuitry and 32-bit S-Master digital amplifier technology helps achieve a more accurate sound. Another feature is a music/movie mode that automatically optimizes sound quality for music or movies by adjusting bass levels and cross-over frequencies.
