Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Sony BRAVIA DAV-DZ170 Home Theater System. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.10 stars, and the price range is $198.00-$229.99.

Complete your home theater with the DAV-DZ170 BRAVIA Home Theater system. Add the cinematic thrill of surround sound to your TV viewing experience with this 5.1-channel BRAVIA theater system. Fusing style with performance, this 5.1-channel surround sound system features a built-in DVD player and 1000 watts of home theater power. This is enough power to get the most from the included speakers and sub-woofers. The iPod compatibility mode helps you to connect iPod or other digital music player via the front USB port. In addition to Digital Cinema Auto Calibration optimizes speaker placement in just 30 seconds, thus ensuring you get the best sound experience from your surround sound. Simply place the included microphone where you will be seated and settings are automatically optimized based on the distance, delays and placements of your speakers. You can use the HDMI interface to upscale your DVD media to near 1080p quality.

The Sony BRAVIA Sync capability helps you conveniently operate and control all your HDMI connected devices with one remote including: Blu-ray disc players, Bravia HDTV, HTS products, Handycam / Camcorders and Cyber-shot Digital cameras. The Smart Remote Control gives a one-touch access for key activities like watching TV, listening radio/music or even watching a movie from the USB port.

However, some reviewers complain that the product does not include HDMI or Optical cables (it includes a basic cable for video connection). The speaker wires are short, thus being suitable for small sized rooms and some users wish that they could adjust each channel sound separately.

Overall, the Sony Bravia DAV-DZ170 Home Theater System is great system to have in your home given its cost, features, and overall quality. It is easy to set up and offers a lot of conveniences making it truly a good investment.
