Expert review by: Steve Guttenberg (

Sony DAV-FX10


Attractive design; five-disc slot-loading DVD/SACD/CD changer/receiver; microsize satellite speakers; standard-size subwoofer.

The receiver/DVD changer takes up a lot of shelf space; inability to modify bass, treble, or subwoofer volume; meager input and output options; confusing onscreen setup menus.

The Sony DAV-FX10 delivers the goods as an affordable and attractive home-theater solution, but competitors offer more for less.

"Not bad overall"


The sound quality of this system is good for those wanting to step up to a medium duty low price HTIB. Good selection of sound fields to deal with the viewers tastes and situations.

good pre selected sound variety

That crazy disc changer

"I have patience but this super slow Home Theater System is ridiculous!"


Do not buy this model! I bought this Dream System 1 year ago for $420 and sometimes I feel like throwing it through the window. It takes forever to read any CD/DVD and I consider myself a very patient individual. Ejecting CDs is also extremely tough...

1000W! With Lots of Work & A Bunch Of Time You Can Make It Sound Good.

Its Extremely Slow & Its Not Easy To Make Sound Adjustments

"Great Package! Awesome sound."


First I'd like to say that I was very impressed with this system. The sound this baby puts out is awesome! I read a few reviews before i wrote this, and not everything is true. The subwoofer IS adjustable(+/-6) and each channel can be adjusted(time...

Clear, crisp, powerful sound, decent inputs, plays super audio cd's, very streamlined.

If you lose the remote you're SOL(except for the basic functions) disc changing/loading/ejecting is on the slow side

"Great Sound"


Sony has always had a place at my house. Always satisfied with sound quality and dependability. This digital head unit does take up a lot of space so be sure that it will fit in the cabinet you intend to put it in. Finally they give you enough speaker...

Lots of Soundfield Options and lots of Inputs

Not enough amplification and a passive sub, slow loading of DVDS

Good unit, but get a service plan


I keep my reviews short, try not to expand on what others have already said. You may have trouble finding this system new, as I think it is last year's model, but if you are buying one used, make sure you get a service plan on it, based on my ...
