Whilst many people are going for Blu-ray home cinema systems these days, DVD based home cinema systems still have a lot to offer, not least of which is fantastic value for money. The Sony DAZ-DZ330 is one such example and with an average street price of well under £250 it’s hard not to be tempted.
The DAZ-DZ330 continues Sony’s 2010 ‘monolith’ design trend, and as we’ve seen on the BDV-E370 Blu-ray system, it really does look great on the deeper home cinema systems. The speakers are similarly designed and should complement a wide range of interior decor.
Setting the Sony DAZ-DZ330 up is a simple affair with easy to connect speakers, and the DCAC one push automatic sound set up that will fully optimise the system especially for your listening environment. The DAVDZ330 is a proper 5.1 surround system with 1000W of power so as well as enjoying the full Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound experience, you’ll also be able to enjoy it loudly! Connect your games console to the DAVDZ330 with an optical cable and you can enjoy an immersive sound experience on your games too.
Connecting to your television with HDMI, the Sony DAZ-DZ330 offers an enhanced picture quality with 1080p upscaling DVD player, and if you have a compatible television you can also control both devices with the BRAVIA Sync to save having another remote control on the arm of your chair.
The capabilities of the Sony DAZ-DZ330 don’t stop with DVDs though – if you own an iPod (Classic, Nano or Touch) you can also plug this into the system and enjoy an enhanced sound quality with the Portable Music Enhancer.
The speaker dimensions of this system are as follows: Front speakers: 103mm × 164mm × 85mm, Centre speaker: 265mm × 94mm × 70mml; Surround speaker: 103mm × 164mm × 85mm; Subwoofer: 169mm × 300mm × 320mm.
What to consider before you buy the Sony DAVDZ330
Without wanting to state the obvious, the DZ330 is a DVD system so if you have Blu-ray discs already or want to upgrade in the future, the BDV-E370 is a better choice.
Why you should buy the Sony DAV-DZ330 DVD Home Cinema System
A fantastic looking home cinema system, the DAV-DZ330 offers great value for money. Even if this is one of the last DVD based systems we see from Sony, it is at least one of their very best. Rating: /5
