So many media players, Blu ray players, PC 5.1 speakers etc are popping up like targets in some shoot 'em up online flash game, I think it’s time we put these components on a backseat and give some attention to a full fledged, “ready to eat” Home theater system, with every component right out of the box. This comparatively under covered segment is also very important, as it covers a niche for people not willing to spend lakhs on a full fledged Home theater, but still desire to get surround sound and the works. This system is by none other than stalwart Sony, it’s a DVD Home theater system, called the DAV DZ810.

Design and features
This product comes with a DVD receiver, which means it plays your source and powers the speakers, the latter of which is also included, 6 of them in all including a subwoofer. The entire system is finished in black, with glossy strips for the front panels of the speakers, holding a black mesh grille along their length, hiding and protecting the drivers. The sub too is similarly finished, also it has the reflex port on the front panel. The speakers are slim and tall, very light weight, with the surrounds perched on a thin tubular stalk, all screwed on to rectangular bases. Speaker wires are color coded and easy to plug in to the back of the player.
