>> Hey everyone, I'm Jeff Bakalar, assistant editor at CNET dot com and I'm here today with the Sony DAV HDX267W. The 267W is a midrange model in Sony's Bravia line of home theater systems. Not only is it a DVD player but it's also a receiver for multiple audio devices. The DVD player can upscale movies to 720P and 1080I over the HDMI output. On the front of the 267W, you'll find buttons for DVD playback, you'll see everything pretty standard that comes with a DVD player. Also, you have five buttons that represent the five discs that the DVD player can play. The 267W also comes with optional wireless speakers. The way this will work it transmits sound to a rear infrared receiver using this amplifier will provide the sound to the rear satellite speakers. The 267W doesn't have as many video inputs as we would like but instead you can take advantage of Sony's proprietary digital media port, which will allow you to purchase one of the four Sony products that will connect to the receiver allowing you to listen to a variety of audio sources. In regards to sound performance we found that the 267W is average. In addition you can't control bass or treble. Overall the 267W performs well for a midrange model in the Bravia line. You may want to opt for a more expensive model in the line, you'll get a lot more features and options as well. I'm Jeff Bakalar and this has been the DAV HDX267W. [ Music ]
The Sony Bravia DAV-HDX500 delivers the best combination of features and value in Sony's Bravia home theater system line.
If Blu-ray compatibility isn't a consideration, Sony's HAV-HDX589W home theater system offers a good balance of features and quality.
The Sony BDV-E770W is one of the best Blu-ray home theater systems we've tested, with excellent sound quality, tons of streaming-media options, 3D compatibility, and wireless rear speakers. The lack of HDMI inputs is the only big omission.
The Sony KDL-EX500 LCD TV incorporates respectable image quality with essential features at a wallet-friendly price.
With a full suite of interactive features as well as solid picture quality, the Sony KDL-W5100 series might be worth the higher price to streaming video fans.
Despite a picture that won't wow sticklers, Sony's edge-lit LED-based NX800 sets a high bar for beautiful design and well-executed features.
The picture quality of Sony's KDL-EX720 shows some flaws but its efficiency, design and well-stocked feature list will win plenty of converts.
The Sony BDV-E500W is an attractive home theater system with built-in Blu-ray and wireless rear speakers, but it's too expensive and lacks streaming media services such as Netflix or Pandora found on cheaper competing systems.
Panasonic's affordable SC-PT750 home theater in a box delivers DVD upscaling, wireless surround speakers, an iPod dock, and some surprisingly decent sound quality for a great price, though it's short on inputs.
At CES 2007, we take a look at the Sony Bravia Internet Video Link, a device that streams Web video to your high-definition television.
