Sony Samurai DAV-FXG99K AV Speaker System

Had a chance to test-drive the latest Sony DAV-FX699K DVD Home Theatre System recently, retails at about RM$2,600.

Tall floor-standing speakers, but equally huge and heavy subwoofer! Basically the system comprises of a DVD + amplifier "unit" which is no bigger then most standalone DVD players, as well as two really tall floor-standing speakers, and a huge subwoofer. I was looking around for the rear speakers, but they weren't to be found, seems this works by 'simulating' the rear speakers.

SONY is just not one to change their remotes ... Would have thought there would have been some evolution, but the RM-ADP023 still looks the same as previous units for various teles, media players etc.

A really cool feature ... DCAC

What's your finding / review on the unit Sound systems and Woofer..?

Shah - 3 stars in terms of sound, but 5 in terms of looks and ease of use!

Anonymous - Thanks for the comment, like I described to Shah above, its more abt convenience then outright sound quality which would only be possible through mixing, matching and seriously researching on some "separates"!
