Sony DAV-FC7

 

Sony upgraded the Dream styling for the new generation. Whereas the previous kits were smooth but boxy, the FC7 is all curves. It also abandons the conventional tray system; the face of the receiver/DVD changer swoops down to accept up to five discs...

Curvaceous styling; contoured satellites and subwoofer; slot-loading five-disc DVD changer; SACD playback; progressive-scan component-video outputs.

Overgenerous bass; no bass or treble controls; won't play recordable DVDs.

While Sony's entry-level home-theater system looks Dreamy, the sound is anything but.

"DVD is CRAP!"

 

Returned the first unit, upon set-up, to Crutchfield for replacement. Used the next one for one year. Two weeks after warranty ends the dvd player flashes standby until the unit is unplugged/replugged and it won't eject or play a dvd. Rarely even used...

Nice lines; surround sound is decent for a small room

DVD player is notoriously lousy - Not enough in/outputs to add a separate dvd player to fix the problem

Junk Box

 

Looks good

Stopped working shortly after the product went out of warranty. Sony was no help at all. Do not buy this piece of junk. I will never buy another Sony product due to their total lack of help

"Pretty good when it works, but DVD feature rarely works."

 

Looks good, sounds good when it works.

The DVD mode rarely works. Can't get my CDs/DVDs to eject. I'll never by this slot-load type system again.

"What a lemon! Do not buy."

 

Plays SACDs.

Slow. Freezes often. Will not turn off, flashes "standby" ad infinatum until you unplug it. Now it will not play DVDs at all or eject the ones in there. I took it back to Best Buy (their service is so-so) who mailed it back to Sony, twice so far. I have

"CD/DVD design is horrible and continuely malfunctions."

 

Looks nice, that's about it.

The DVD/CD malfunctioned from day 1, even after being "repaired". It freezes the machine, and you have to unplug it and wait a day to retrieve the discs. Poorly designed 5 CD changer.

"DON'T BUY IT. PLEASE READ REVIEWS"

 

Decent sound for DVD's and TV. Music CD stink!!!!!!!!! And I don't play my music loud!!

I should have believed the reviews before I bought this system. Two months after I got it it started the standby problem and would not turn on unless I unplugged it. Also I could no longer play DVD's. I purchased it at Tweeter and they have had it for the
