"Sony Strikes Again!"

The Sony DAV-DZ260 is a brilliant piece of kit.
I have had this sound system for over 6 months now and my main uses for it vary. I use it to:
- Play and Upscale my DVD's to near high definition to play on my 32 inch LCD tv.
- Use the optical input on it to play my xbox 360 with 5.1 surround sound.
- Use the audio in/3.5mm jack to play music, play games and watch movies on my computer

All of these tasks are executed with the precision and level of detail you would expect from a high end sony sound system, being TrueHD ready on 0.1% of each channel this is moving towards being ready for blu-ray.

The sound is crisp and clear as well as being really rather loud and undistorted at a higher range of volume. The volume only goes up to 35, and its hard to hear anything after 30.
And even then it is bearable.

I have never been tempted to use the USB connection on the front of the sony, as it does not appeal to me as i already play the music from my pc.

The DVD upscaler on this system isnt the best on the market, i know of a few other upscalers that would do a much better job, namely the samsung pebble shaped upscaler, and the toshiba super slim one. however these two other choices are nothing in comparison to this, as they do not hold the power of 850 watts of 5.1 surround at their disposal to blow you away. This is the difference, a combination of things and not just the upscaler.
Overall I love this product, it is the best £130 I have ever spent.
I bought this product from Dixons Online Store.

Thank you for reading this review.
