Sony BRAVIA DAV-HDX589W Home Theater System


Posted Jun 2, 2008 - Dosssssssgame. It's a great hardware/game combination, and one of the most innovative applications of user interface that I've ever seen, but you'll likelyssssss of your asdfasds (get my driff?) the novelty will wear off faster...

Great system


This thing also has FM and AM radio stations that play crisp and clear. The function button makes it easy to switch audio to whatever source you want surround sound from. Remember as mentioned before, use an optical cable from your HD television to the...

Great surround system, easy hookup, wires are color coded. This system really pumps out the volume. This thing will be blasting on 20! Who knows what things will shake at a higher level. It has 3 sound modes: auto, music, and movies. It goes great with...

I tried hooking up my Ipod touch 3G to the Digital Media port (Ipod dock), but after I read the DMPort manual, it only supports Generations one and two, not 3. Wish Sony would make a compatible Ipod dock for the Ipod touch 3G ; I would add that a sound...

SONY DAV-HDX589W 5.1-Channel DVD Home Theater System


I can't believe I am watching the same TV. With the DVD player's upscaling, my older DVD's have never looked so good and the sound is like being in a movie theater. This system works great in my relatively small room (15'x18') but I have the volume...

Great sound quality at an affordable price. Easy setup ; Wireless rear speakers, tho not totally wireless help to create a fast easy installation

Limited inputs for other devices. Can't see the Display from across my small room, might work better for you if you have very good eyesight. The rear speakers are not entirely wireless, you will still have wires running from rear amp to the 2 rear...

Nice for price


I have to run mine at 70% max volume from less than 9 feet away to hear it over conversations elsewhere in the house. Despite the cons, you will enjoy this unit for the cost.

Great looking system, finish matched my LG 42" perfectly. Stand alone front speakers look great, and yet dont stand out too much. 5 disc changer is really smooth and fast. Wireless rear amp makes setting up a larger room much less complicated and more...

Proprietary wiring. Sound is VERY directional; unless you have speakers set up perfectly, you will find yourself constantly increasing the volume. LED display on unit is a bit too simple and small. Remote seems unnecessarily complicated, but main...

SONY DAV-HDX589W 5.1-Channel DVD Home Theater System


I like how you do not have to run any wires to the rear amp. This is my first surround sound purchase. I am satisfied so far. Still have a lot to learn just about this system in general

You may not have to run wires to the rear amp, but you do have to run wires from the amp to the speakers. Works pretty good though

Would buy again


Would buy again.

DVD upscales great. Just watched "The Fifth Element" and looked and sounds great - can not see how Blu Ray would be much better

Sound seems underpowed, have to crank it up more then expected. Other wise great

Great System for the price


I would purchase this again in a heartbeat. It is exactly what I wanted. I overcame the limited inputs by utilizing the multiple inputs on my TV for the devices and using an optical audio connection to the surround system.

Easy setup, clean, clear sound, lots of functionality, slim speakers, sufficient volume, good balance between all speakers. For the price this system is a great value and sounds great. Wireless rear speakers work great with no static or pops/clicks....

Low-tech LED display, small diameter speaker wires, volume may not be sufficient for very large rooms (my room is 18' wide x 25' long and this system is just right), limited inputs for other devices (i.e. blue ray player, game system, etc.)

Sounds great for the price


I previously installed home theater and audio as a profession, and found myself buying this when it was on sale for my living room. When paired with a wall screen projector and well placed speakers, this system is very dynamic sounding. Not too strong...

Coaxial input broke off some time during shipping. Opened the box, pulled everything out and found the threaded input loose on the bottom of the box and an open spot on the back of the DVD receiver where it used to be soldered onto the board/pressed...

Sony DAV-HDX589W


Unfortunately I didn't buy this from newegg. I oringally had a cheaper system but it just didn't cut it so I returned it and forked out the extra money. I am so glad I did!

I've had this system for almost a year and everytime someone comes to watch a movie or game they are blown away ; Easy setup, since it is a 'home-theater-in-a-box ; When hooked up to the right source (optical) it sounds amazing ; Ipod hook-up sounds...

Non HD/multi channel audio singals don't sound very well ; Needs more input/outpus. 1x optical and 1x RCA inputs is very inconvient ; No real way to adjust the bass

Not bad


"So far it's performed well. Although, the speaker wires are quite short and requires splicing extensions if you have a larger room. The surround sound system speakers connects separately from the main unit, therefore I was confused since it connects...

All in one cd/dvd/mp3 player
