Sony DAV S300 ... 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.

If you think a home cinema costs £1000 plus, think again. This Sony DAV-S300 includes everything you need for home cinema. When I first got this I was very impressed, the first DVD I ran of it gave sharp vibrant images, and plenty of options for DVD's. The setup for this system is easy for anyone, the plugs are colour coded and easily connect. The sound is as impressive as any micro Hi fi out there. Bass comes flooding out the subwoofer, and the mid to high frequencies are handled by the satellite speakers. Yes the Dolby 5.1 decoding is included too, and gives great atmosphere. The system can also handle CD's and VCD's. From the size of it, its impressive how Read the complete review

The DVAS300 makes for a superb entry-level combi into the world of DVD and cinema sound. It features DVD playback, Digital Cinema Sound with a number of sound fields, two auxillary in's and FM tuner. The playback and sound quality is faultless, with five high-powered satellite speakers and a subwoofer that would make the neighbours labrador jealous. It's aesthetically pleasing too with it's brushed aluminium outer casing and glass fronted display. Basically it oozes Sony quality. The remote control is straight forward too, with a lift-up flap revealing some of the more advanced controls to keep the unit a sensible size. As you might expect, much of ...

For about a year and a half now, I have been in the market for a DVD player. When I first started my search, I was being very picky. I wanted something astonishing for very little cost. Impossible? Yes. I also thought to myself that this player _must_ be multi regional. So time passed and money got tight, so my DVD thoughts had to take a back seat. So, recently I started browsing again and started to think, well, why on earth do I need a multi-regional DVD player? I have a video, and do I ever buy videos?? No. Never, which is reason to believe that I would never buy a DVD movie! Multi-regional requirements out of the way, I wondered, well what do I ... Read the complete review

Feeling the need to spend some money, we visited the Northampton Sony shop and walked out having bought a widescreen TV (another ***** review on it's way) and the DAV-S300 integrated home theatre / DVD system. Like most homes with a TV, VCR, Satellite set-top-box and Hi-fi, space is at a premium so the primary requirement for this purchase was size. The Sony unit scores highly on this as it integrates the Surround Amp and DVD into one extremely thin unit - around 7CM/3" high. This does away with the need for the usually huge surround amp (why do they need to be so large ?). Secondly, the speakers that are supplied are also small (10x10x10CM) which is ...
