“The SONY DAV-SC5 is a really fab box that is simply...”

Written on: 05/11/2003 by myiop (1 review written)

Good Points
Easy Setup, Prologic II support, incredibly clear centre speaker for dialogue

Bad Points
Speakers don't look very stylish, not good enough sound quality for playing music CDs to replace your hifi.

General Comments
The SONY DAV-SC5 is a really fab box that is simply brilliant. The only short coming is with music CDs and the size/look of the speakers; though this is always a personal thing. XBOX games come alive with space ships in HALO flying over your head with a real rumble of a big space craft. TV with Prologic II is life like with people talking behind you in Holby City, just like a real hospital. This is going to be a real hard system to beat for price as you can get it for just under £350. Lots of volume if required and still very good at low volumes.

What seems to make the music inferior.

What makes the music inferior? This really is a problem for all home cinema systems. The bass is separate to the speakers which don't have the range of proper stereo speakers. I do have to say that it is much better if you can get your sub near enough the front speakers; some systems have bigger front speakers to get round the problem but take up more space and cost more money. Now I have had it a bit longer I can honestly say the sound is brilliant for TV and DVDs and very listenable for music. The only niggle I have now is the slightly fiddly remote control but I highly recommend the system which easily beats much of the competition and it would be hard to believe anyone who owns one being disappointed. Just go to your local Sony shop and you can get them to demonstrate the model if you have any doubts and then buy it £100 cheaper somewhere else.
