Looks great,but major problems with DVD


Easy to install. Looks great

I took my one month old unit back to the store because my DVD wasn't working properly. I was given another unit. 6 months have passed and I'm experiencing simular problems with my second unit. I'm a big Sony fan, but there Dream is my Nightmare

solid system


I went into Tweeter and they had the DAV-FC8 hooked up to an Elite Pro1110HD plasma display (i.e. the best plasma display on the market as of 2004, only $12k). The two are very nice together. I ask the store rep what the difference is between the DAV-FC8

You pay to have a good quality system. And you'll want a good TV to complement it (if you don't want plasma, check out the Sharp Aquos line of LCDs)
