The Pros:DVD player provides a crisp, clear picture. 5-disc changer makes watching a whole season of a TV show a much more convenient and enjoyable experience. Manual is very in-depth, great for finding out the details of how everything works.
The Cons:Manual is very long and sometimes hard to understand.
The DAV-HDX285 is an entry-level model in Sony's line of BRAVIA home theater systems. The 1000W, 5.1-channel system's feature set is more mid-range than entry-level, however. It includes a 5-disc CD/DVD changer, an iPod dock for easy music playback in surround sound, and 1080p DVD upscaling via HDMI, for enhanced picture quality.
