4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality for the price!
After looking at Best Buy, Target, and many other places for a surround sound system I stumbled upon this on at Walmart. At first because of the low price I figured it would be a piece of junk. I went home and looked at the reviews and decided why not give it a try. My first impression was it looked fairly slick for a cheaper system. After hooking it up to my...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great system for small rooms/environments, not a lot of people...
I am reviewing this after purchasing thru. Walmart. We lost all functioning on our previous Home Theatre DVD system which was 1000W and we downgraded to this because we were not ready to pay a lot of money for a new comparable system. We would have had to pay at least $300-500.00 for comparable to the old. This new Sony cost $128.00 in stores great in general if it is...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality for the price!, February 9, 2013
This review is from: Sony DAVTZ140 DVD Home Theater System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
After looking at Best Buy, Target, and many other places for a surround sound system I stumbled upon this on at Walmart. At first because of the low price I figured it would be a piece of junk. I went home and looked at the reviews and decided why not give it a try. My first impression was it looked fairly slick for a cheaper system. After hooking it up to my projector and mounting the speakers on the walls I decided to give it a try with good old That 70's Show! I was astounded. After I tried out the sound using Netflix I tried a DVD and it worked flawlessly, I then tried the USB hook up for my Iphone 5 and was HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED! The receiver said no USB device detected!

So other than the fact that YOU CAN NOT HOOK AN APPLE DEVICE TO THIS (I tried Iphone, Ipad, and Itouch and none worked) it is a good bang for your buck.

5.0 out of 5 stars For small rooms and small systems, December 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is for a small room. Not much power. Has a great sound and balance but it is pre wired so the speakers only go so far, as does the sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough!, February 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony DAVTZ140 DVD Home Theater System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I have yet to hook this up to my television, as when I purchased it I was only looking for a decent system for my ever-growing cd collection. The sound quality is good, but at lower levels you can hear the spinning mechanism. It's not that much of a problem, since my intent is to rock the house, but nonetheless annoying for a brand new piece of equipment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great system for small rooms/environments, not a lot of people..., June 30, 2014
This review is from: Sony DAVTZ140 DVD Home Theater System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I am reviewing this after purchasing thru. Walmart. We lost all functioning on our previous Home Theatre DVD system which was 1000W and we downgraded to this because we were not ready to pay a lot of money for a new comparable system. We would have had to pay at least $300-500.00 for comparable to the old. This new Sony cost $128.00 in stores great in general if it is a small space, this system is not designed to be a main large livingroom home theatre..... This is only 300W... Huge difference... The sound quality is great in spite of that but definitely not the same volume. Luckily, our livingroom is very small and only two of us most of the time, so it works for us for the timebeing, but to give you a comparison the old 1000W system we had volume usually around 10, the new Sony is around 24 for same comparable sound/volume... We just hooked it up yesterday and have a little leeway to play with on speakers, audio adjustments, etc. I do recommend this only for bedrooms, dens, small livingrooms, etc. If you think you are going to have Superbowl parties in a large viewing room with this system with lots of people this will not work at all for that purpose..... Within about 3 years we will pur. a new upgraded system and then this will move into our bedroom since right now we just watch through tv speakers. It will be great for that...

1.0 out of 5 stars "Discountinued by Manufacturer", July 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony DAVTZ140 DVD Home Theater System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Worked fine until day 2 - then noticed rear surround sound speakers not working while all others were working just fine. Next day the rear surround sound speakers were working. Next day they did not. This went on for several days until one day the unit did not power up at all. Called Tech Support and they had me unplug unit from power source and then hold on/off button for 30 seconds - this successfully reset the system and it began working. Two days later it happened again and I went through the reset process. After that it became a daily occurence and frustration. I sent the entire unit back for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sony 300 Watts 5.1 Channel Home Theater Surround Sound System With DVD..., March 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a beautiful and sleek package, that nicely fits into small spaces; although I hoped that it would deliver more sound. Nonetheless, I am pleased with it and recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you live in appartment, October 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony DAVTZ140 DVD Home Theater System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
This is an entry model. Enhance the quality or regular DVD. The sound is good but the problem is the lack of power. Pay attention. You are always at the maximum level and even there it just meet "Fair". For sure you won't shake the room and sometime you would like to. Also there is no optical or HDMI entry (in) to improve it... and remember it doesn't read Blue Ray. So won't buy again nor recommend. Go for minimum 600W.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing, June 23, 2012
This review is from: Sony DAVTZ140 DVD Home Theater System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Received mind from Sony this week. Easy assembled and sounds good for small room.
Discovered it would not play sound from my TV. The manual states it only works with Sony TV.
Not going to take TV back so I will try to send this unit back.

Just got this for Xmas and found out it only has RCA inputs. You shouldn't buy this if you have gaming systems or other set-top boxes.
