I was pretty skeptical about a home-theater-in-a-box until I got this new Sony system home and tried it out. I already had a really good component-based home theater, but this system was a promotional purchase along with my new Sony HDTV, and the price was too good to pass up. Set-up took about 45 minutes, but the resulting sound is awesome! The bass is wonderful - when the Norah Jones CD is playing, my living room sounds like a jazz club!I had recently purchased the Sony NS-575P single-disc ...

I started with a DAV-FC1, it would freeze up if you paused a disc for along period of time (pause, go to work, come home). Went round and round with Sony's horrible support, they eventually send me a DAV-FR1. Guess what, the same freeze happens. And when it freezes you have to unplug it from the wall, and leave it unplugged for a while before starting over again. The unit basically works, but if you are annoyed by a consumer product that can be made to freeze, this is not for you. I'm refusing y...

The Sony DAV FR1 looks and sounds great, but it does not exactly set the standard for cutting edge technology for home theatre systems.It comes with the 5 speakers and 1 woofer and the 5 disc DVD player.Speakers:They are 100 watts each. Powerful.. very powerful. I have a huge living room and the speakers filled the room with sound. But there are 2 aspects which bother me, viz.1) The surround speakers should have had a system by which they could be connected wirelessly. Panasonic makes a similar ...

I don't why the previous reviewer gave this wonderful piece of sound engineering such a poor rating. I gifted this system to myself in Christmas, after lot of deliberation between this system, Sony DAV-BC150 and Panasonic HT-720. And I am eternally glad that I finally choose this system. DAV-FR1 is everything you can expect, and then some more. Let me jot them in a organized fashion before I get too carried away:1. Quality: I am quite finicky about sound quality, and yet I have heard nothing lik...

I bought the DAV-FR1 several months ago.The good: It comes with just about everything you need (except mounting brackets for the speakers), and was pretty easy to hook up. I'd rate the sound at 7 of 10 (I'm not even comparing it to $1000+ systems). It packs a lot of function into a small unit. the 5-disk changer plays mp3s and jpeg disks too.The bad: It may have 100w/ch, but that's into 4ohm speakers. It probably gets loud enough for most people, but in my large (25x25) family room, I've reach...

The design is ultra sleek & contemporary and the sound and picture are indeed remarkable for a home theater in a box system. I love playing home made picture discs like a slide show. This system makes that very easy to do.As stated by the previous reviewers, there are a few little glitches in this system that need to be resolved before my rating for this system increase to 5 stars.* The carousel does take a bit too long to load. It's not very long, but longer than other systems, and long enoug...

SOUNDThe sound from this Home Theater System is surprisingly rich. Preset equalizer settings for everything from Sci-Fi movies to video games match up well, and the Dolby 5.1 surround settings are quite balanced. All in all, an excellent audio experience, and with plenty of settings to allow you to program each speaker for the exact placement and distance from your central seating area.DVD PICTUREThe DVD picture is very sharp, though after seeing the HD images from Comcast, it does pale just a b...

Not too long ago Sony had only one Dream System, and it was more than enough power for around 450-bucks. Then, I think they realized they were giving away too much for too little. I bought two of them, and they are almost as powerful as the bigger Dream System available nowadays. After listening to this one in the store, I was horrified at the lack of depth and tinny sound coming out of this piece of crap. It is an abomination compared to the last version.The 'bigger one' on the other hand, is a...

Picked this unit up for 399.00 right here on Maui, took it home and the Kid and I hooked it up that night. A quantum leap for audio in this household, replacing a stereo, Remember those? Anyway the unit sounds great and has features that bring us forward in time. I'll be picking up a couple of SACD disks soon. Only negative so far; the unit does not operate when changing disks and it takes some time to do so, but not to worry, it operates very well when goin'. Hopefully, it will fulfill our ...
