Toshiba Regza DV556DB


Toshiba makes a decent fist with this solid performer's decent DVD and good level of flexibility.

Overall, the DV556DBââ'¬â"¢s real selling point is its flexibility. Its size, digital TV and DVD features make it good for the bedroom; the PC connectivity and CD playback make it suitable for the study or den; the other connection options mean it's...

Just ok for bedroom tv.


Picture is clear, but small. Audio is very disapointing. Not very loud. But it serves the purpose, small, compact, and decent picture. Should have paid a little more and gotten something with better sound and more connections, and a slightly larger...

good picture, sound is lacking


We've had this tv for a few months now and while it looks nice and has a great picture the sound quality sounds as though it is coming through tiny tin cans. Our daughter doesn't seem to mind as most of her shows are cartoons and are kind of squeaky...

In common with almost all other reviewers - the sound is atrocious. Max volume on the remote, especially when playing a DVD is hopelessly inadequate. For this reason I'm moving to a different brand of TV

Good picture, awful audio

I can't hear you!!!


Great picture, awful audio. I read other people's reviews and saw the same complaint -- at top volume, it's still difficult to hear anything. Why are the speakers located on the BACK????

In adequate sound


Obviously I am not the only one complaining of low level sound even when it is set to high. Is there and optical sound out adapter that can allow connecting a sound booster or at lease conventional headsets? Toshiba needs to respond to this problem and...

Poor Volume/Sound


Purchased this tv/dvd combo to have in the dining room for visitors. The sound is pitiful and even at 100%, you strain to hear what is being said. It is a waste of money.

This TV stinks


Weak speaker volume. You can only hear it in noise free room. No headphone jack & no audio out..

I own a Toshiba computer and have been very happy with it. However, the picture quality of this television was extremely poor even after adjustment. The only way it could be viewed clearly was in the dark.
