Customer Reviews of Sony DAVDZ170 1 kW 5.1 Home Theater System
Good entry level system2/10/2014
Good system for average size home. Solid build speakers with metal grills. Good sound quality but a little weak on volume.
Sounds great. Looks great. Easy set-up and lots of options
I purchased this surround sound set for my fiance for christmas. He had been asking for one for several months, and nearly bought his own on several occasions. When he opened this one, he was thrilled because we always find that Sony products are of a high quality. This was no exception. The set up was quick and easy, and all the necessary cables (except HDMI which we already had) were included. Each speaker had excellent sound quality, and the set lived up to the Sony name. The subwoofer is more powerful than either of us expected, and since we live in an apartment complex, we often don't use it to its potential so as not to bother other residents. Overall, the money spent on this system is well worth the experience, and I would even say I feel like we got a bargain. Other sets that I've heard in electronics stores that are comparable in price don't seem to stand up. Good Job Sony!
Little complicate to setup but worth it12/13/2010
Connection of speakers was very easy. However, I had trouble with the HDMI and Optical connections to my Bravia Sony HDTV; I thought it was one or the other. It seems you need to have the HDMI connected so all Sony components can work together with one Sony TV remote. I also used the optical cable for the best sound. All in all, it was worth the trouble. The sound is very powerful and above all... very clean! More powerful than I will ever need to use! I would highly recommend it. Just read the instructions carefully to avoid frustrations.
