At this price, it's amazing!
 
We first bought a Panasonic system, but were very disappointed with the picture quality of the DVD player and the overall sound. At Amazon.com this Sony system was only $[...] more than the Panasonic, and the difference in quality is much greater than the difference in price. The picture is beautiful. We had a Toshiba DVD player that gave a great picture, but this one is even more crisp and the colors are great. We have an older HDTV that doesn't have an HDMI-in connection, so we can't enjoy the...

Super sound, picture and price
 
For under $400 you have a system that is worth every penny. The other three writers captured every aspect of the FX500 well. While I rated it 5 our of 5 it is a reserved 5. Yes, the changer is slow but not to the point that you should care too much. I just stopped using a full blown Onkyo system with Boston and Cerwin Vega speakers; however, they are no match for this system especially on the surround sound aspect. This system is easy to install except it takes time and patience. Give your...

Good performance for the price
 
Good: For under 400 bucks, this product is real value for money. The sound is great, bass adequate, and surround sound is impressive. Auto-calibration works like a charm, automaitcally adjusting power levels based on the listening position of the viewer. It has Digital/optical inputs, HDMI, component, Composite, S-video, and a nice front audio-in for MP3 players like the iPod. Comes with AM and FM antenna, and is XM ready. Bad: 5-DVD carousel is really slow in loading, c...

Disks change too slow, audio is not customizable, not enough inputs
 
I bought this system largely because of the reviews on Amazon. I was initially quite impressed with the system, but the devil is in the details with this one. Setup was quick and easy, and the provided audio mic is easy to use to setup the speakers. The sound is also really good. My problems started when I began using the 5 disk DVD change. It takes a solid 30 seconds to change from one DVD to the next. Seriously. Think about that before you buy this system. Count out loud to...

Very good system for the price
 
After shopping around for a Home Theater in a Box, I decided on this system. The stores did not have it on display or in stock, so I could not try it out before getting it home. Also, amazon had the best price I could find. Honestly, I did not know what to expect given the low price (low in comparison to seperate components, this is). Over the years I have purchased many amps and other components, including top end infinity speakers. But I could never get the system "matched" properly, so t...

Great system - not for HD-DVD
 
We are a high-volume DVD movie family with well over $3k in our movie library - and growing. We replaced our LOUSY Bose 3-2-1 system (and, I mean LOUSY) with this SOny Dream system and haven't regretted it yet. We have had this system for a couple of months now, and it is a very nice system for the money, and beats the Bose 3-2-1 system in all categories. Great HDMI 1080i output to out LCD TV, and hasn't shown a glitch whatsoever in almost daily use. The only downside to this system is it do...

If you don't mind a thumping bass with no control and overall poor audio, it's worth about $250. Not the $400 I wasted or the $699 list. I've seen boom boxes with more audio control. The simple and very few presets all have thumping bass which makes it unacceptable for watching TV with 5.1 sound because most of the commercials are overbassed to annoy you. The only way to stop it is to rip the bass wires out because Sony included a cheap bass with no volume control unlike any $50 set of pc speake...

Good Product
 
A little expensive for what you get but good HMDI upconvert and good sound. Easy setup. Alot of different options to choose from for sound processing. Overall I am pleased. I would definitely not spend more that what I paid to Amazon. Plus the free shipping option is awesome. I ordered it one Friday night at like 7:00 pm and I recieved it Monday at like 12:00 pm. Other stores like Circuit City and Best Buy wanted $100 to $150 more plus tax. This overall was the best deal above which I wo...

Sony DAV-FX500 XM-Ready 5 Disc DVD Dream System
 
I purchased this system about 3 months ago. The setup was relatively easy, including the calibration of the speaker locations. I have it connected to a 42" LCD TV through HDMI cables (also purchased through Amazon!). Overall I have been very impressed with the sound and picture quality of the system. My only minor gripes are that: 1) the system has special speaker wire connectors for the receiver, making it more difficult to use the in-wall speaker wire I had run for the rear surround speake...
