Sony BDP-S300, Samsung BD-P1200, and Panasonic DMP-BD10A Blu-ray Players


Hot on the heels of the first, and almost universally lame, generation of Blu-ray players, here's generation II. In the case of two of these players, the big news is a substantial reduction in price. Both are less than half of their predecessors. In...

All in all, it's not a bad player for the money. If you don't have HDMI on your receiver, go for it. If you do, the PS3 does all this and more for the same money.

Dav-SB300 Home Theatre


This system is ok for the price but it seems to lack on the speakers supplied.

Visually it is stunning (With high end Screen and RGB Scart) but I tested it on my bedroom TV also(fx32) an it is still stunning

Very, Very cheap and nasty speakers ; They are good on DVD but SACD and CD are terrible

Bass Collection SB300 Series


Great bass. Low action means it is very easy to play. There is fret buzz but the pickups dont pick it up. The sound is very nice and big. The only problems are the location of the jack out and the battery is hard to access.

Speakers: Subwoofers: Sony DAV-S300 Subwoofer


The DAV-S300 Subwoofer provides the anchor that movie sounds need to create drama. With 180 watts of power driving the efficient satellites and subwoofer, there is plenty of sound to fill any small to medium-sized room. Setup and use is easy thanks to...

Avoid this product - DVD player eventually keeps giving errors


Features you can get somewhere else, my opinion is that this was a good little system for the price. The sound is OK, my speaker placement isn't ideal, so perhaps my opinion should be discounted, but the mid range sound is just not all there. This ...

Easy to set up, Good Pic, Compact

C13:00 error for 80% of DVD's I put in (see review above)

Perhaps, some more control over tone (Bass/Treble)--other than that,none.

Product Specifications

Called the DAV-S300 or the "Dream System", this all-in-one wonder comprises an AV receiver with a built-in DVD player (or vice versa) that features both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 channel processing, 5 micro satellite speakers, and a passive subwoofer. This all-in-one solution means that setup is fuss-free and worry-free. Detailed explanations, via easily understood color charts, are provided on the proper connections to the speakers. To further highlight the ease-of-connection of this system, speaker cables with color-coded connectors are provided to facilitate this function. To complement both the Dolby Digital and DTS formats, Sony's proprietary technology, Digital Cinema Sound, is also featured on the DAV-S300. Digital Cinema Sound effectively uses 3-D sound imaging to create the feel of sound emanating from points where no physical speakers exist. It allows the rear speakers (or even the front speakers) to recreate the same form of sound radiation achieved by multiple speakers. The result is a true theatre-like surround sound experience. The DAV-S300 also sports a slim, stylish design that seduces you, with its sleek chassis profile and svelte speaker design. As such, it is the perfect complement for those who strive for balance between aesthetics and performance in their home theatre equipment. Underneath its gorgeous exterior, the DAV-S300 sports the heart of a beast, with its pure 30 watt per channel power output into each of the five discrete channels (including the passive subwoofer). The key to achieving this power rating coupled with the unit's slim design is the utilization of a unique Class-T amplification design. This breakthrough design successfully provide the signal fidelity of sophisticated discrete-component linear Class-A and -AB designs, while offering high power efficiencies and the potential to need less exotic engineering to achieve high-end audiophile performance.
