Great looks. Great sound. Great picture. Almost everything included to get you started....
....Except speaker stands/brackets. No substitute for 'proper hi-fi' with music. No scart output.
After reading 'What hi-fi' raving about the DAV-S550 being a star buy for £600. I decided that for £350 (multi-region) from 'Richer Sounds', it was too good an offer to let pass. And i have to agree with 'What Hi-fi'. The sound is impressive and weighty with action films, but still crystal clear enough for dialogue. I know that it could never compete with full-on separate A/V components and speaker packages, but in my room which is approx 4m x 4m i would never have the space for such equipment. So the diddy satelite speakers and sub are just the ticket. DPL 2 is also a great feature for watching standard TV programmes. It's worthwhile getting an S-video - Scart lead (or component cable if you're lucky enough to have a plasma screen) As this is noticeably better than the composite adaptor supplied. To sum up. Buy with confidence (not forgetting mounting brackets!). As long as you're lounge isn't of gargantuan proportions, you won't be dissapointed.
