Sony has just launched the DAV-F200 Bravia home theatre system, sony sound bites “Bringing cinema sound without cluttering up your living room with speakers” as the major selling point. In terms of specifications its not amazing but fine for casual home use.

DAV-F200 Specifications

  • 2.1 channel home theater system

  • 300W amplifier

  • HDMI output

  • MP3 recording via USB

  • Playback of MP3, WMA, AAC, and JPEG via USB

  • Internal playback of MP3, JPEG, and DivX formats

  • BRAVIA Sync

The control box can be mounted to the wall or placed in a cabinet and the hideaway speakers as small enough to hide in any number of crevasses in the living room.With a total amplification output of 405W claims to create virtual surround effects from only two hidden speakers and the reasonably compact sub-woofer. Worded another way sony are selling you 2.1 surround sound but fobbing it off as virtual 5.1 surround sound. unfortunately, there’s no word on price or availability in the US, however in the Europe our sources tell us June 2008 release.

1 Comment so far. Feel free to join this conversation.

    I got this just over a week ago, and I'm thoroughly impressed. The unit is very stylish, but doesn't compromise in sound quality. The subwoofer really does a great job of filling the room, and gives the illusion that the small speakers are pumping out that level of sound. The DVD player gives a good picture on the basic Component out, but I'm looking forward to getting an HDMI cable and testing the upscaling properly.
