Waste Of Money


The sound is great, for dvd's. The upconverting feature is great, but to me, the system is basically useless because there are no digital inputs. The only thing that will do actual surround sound is dvd's. Not what i wanted at all, but once i set it up...

Product Specifications

The DAV-HDX265 BRAVIA system integrates a high-quality DVD changer with HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) output with 720p/1080i video upscaling for connectivity with the latest HD digital televisions to enhance picture quality and sound. The system features BRAVIA Theater Sync, which helps integrate the operation of the system with a compatible BRAVIA television sending control signals over HDMI. With the touch of a button, users can automatically turn on and switch inputs, syncing connected devices making operation easier. Also included is Sony's Digital Media Port. This enables the addition of music options with wireless Bluetooth devices, WiFi-enabled PCs and portable digital music players, including select Network Walkman players, with a simple connection through an optional accessory. Once connected the device is powered and controlled by the system. Additionally, Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (DCAC) is included, simplifying multi-channel surround sound setup with the use of an included microphone for a balanced home theater experience.
