Set up correctly - sounds awesome with clear separation between all channels. Really lifts the Cinema experience. Looks very modern and fits in a treat with my Bravia TV. CD quality is great too - bought a Super Audio CD to try the quality and was massively impressed!!
Highly recommend! (read more)

Worked ok for a while then started to get problems which gradually got worse. Started to freeze in the menu sections of DVDs, then started to freeze when moving from one chapter of the film to the next (i.e. in the middle of the film!) Also started having problems getting the stupid thing just to eject the disk.
In the end it just ate a blockbuster DVD and refused to give it back no matter how many times I switched it on/off (at the wall because it would wouldn't switch off either - just... (read more)

The Sony DAV-SCB sounds without any distortion at any given volume and bass. I find it better to buy and watch dvd's on my theatre than to going to PVR or Waves. The sound is much better. (read more)

I bought the Sony DAV-SC8 DVD home cinema system in a sale for £400 from a major high street retailer. I have had no problems since purchase nearly 2 years ago.

Although I complained about the speakers in stereo mode for music, simply switch on the Pro Logic II Music setting and it evens things... (read more)

The Sony DAV-SC8 is the worst disaster ever to come through my front door. Cost £796 July last year. Great Speakers but the actual DVD unit is absolute rubbish. You can never depend on it playing a DVD when you just want to sit down and enjoy a good movie. Won't take commands from the handset, neither on the manual buttons on the unit. Won't eject DVD's on command. Won't play them either. Seems to have a software problem. Switching off at the plug only works about 1time in 30 goes.
