I paid £330 for this from Digital Direct 3 weeks ago and thought that was a bargain. I think this is a cracking system and you can make it Multi-Region for £24.99 via: http://www.multiregionupgrades.com/upgrades/sony/davis10.htm

Using the voucher pays for the multi-region fix, it is very simple to do, and more importantly, it works.

It's a bargin as Currys are selling them £499

Excellent price.......this is a quality little system:thumbsup:
#3
I bought one of these just after Christmas for around this price (£275?) but it looks £299 is as good as you can get now so this is a great price.

I must admit I went to have a look at it in Comet just to see it and it was £499 which made me laugh.

If you're looking for something with small speakers I'd highly recommend it :).

I bought one back in March for the living room and it was £325 (multi-region) from Digital Point. I dropped my Technics 5-disc DVD player that I had in the bedroom whilst cleaning back in April and it wouldn't play. When I took it into be repaired they told me it was "uneconomical to fix" so I claimed it on my house insurance and bought the Sony DAV-IS10 with the proceeds (from Digital Direct).

It's a quality system.

Where did you purchase it at £275.

Excellent price and reserved one for pick up tomorrow!

Nice find!

voted hot, quality system.
#8
Bought mine six months back paid £350 cracking piece of kit if your house is not huge as the speakers are golf ball size however the sound produced is superb. DVD playback makes normal dvds look great and it has some smart features like it will remember the last 10 discs you have watched and begin playback where you last watched them. Great price if you are in the market for a system.

does this have a usb port on it? to play stiff from a memory stick? and is there a similar setup on the market ( but wireless speakers?)

cheers

The panasonic surround systems have wireless rear speakers, well sort of. you dont need to run leads all the way round the roomat least. and most will play USB- you need an adaptor thing for the rear ones though.
for instance-

The samsungs are wireless as well if you buy the extra module for them which is around £60-100

the speakers are small but you wont be dissapointed,the sound is amazing especially the bass,try omni and crank up the bass and treble and prepare for the neighbors at the door.:-D
just plug everything into the tv and set the davs 10 to tv,works for me usual stuff component for wii ,hdmi for ps3,,etc, and youre sorted:thumbsup:
#16
I just tried to order these online and get them delivered, but the Comet site says they aren't in stock in my area (South London)! How absurd is that?
#17
I've just brought the updated version DAV-IS100 and like the IS10 it's amazing. These small speakers are very powerful and bring out an amazing sound. My PS3 blu-ray playing went up a notch after connected :)

Why would i buy this over a blu ray player??

I don't know! I've just bought a plasma tv so am looking for a HD source. I thought that DVD would be phased out for blue ray now, is that the case?

personally i have a good tv like yourself and wanted a desent 5.1 system for it,also it upscales dvds to 1080i better than a ps3 and i still have loads of them as well as blue rays!:thumbsup:

NO! Its a genuine question, when i bought that system i was told it was the dogs danglies! Admittedly it was 6 years ago would this be a significant improvement?

Upscaling a dvd, how would that make the quality better, surely a dvd is dvd quality?

Yes! I'm sorry if i come across a bit thick, its a genuine question. Would it make all dvd's the same quality as blu ray?

Upscaled DVDs definitely won't look as good as HD sources. You're essentially right, upscaling DVDs is far from perfect as you still have a lower res image so it's difficult to make it look better.

However, something to bear in mind is that this is a fantastic little system that isn't only a DVD player but an AV amp and speaker package, too. Just connect your Blu-Ray player to it (when you get one) and you'll be able to watch your Blu-Ray movies in surround sound. It won't be HD audio, though, "just" Dolby Digital. I believe Sony will release a Blu-Ray version of this package but it will obviously be very expensive...
#30
Thanks poison jam, i could use my s500 system to play audio only though so this won't be a considerable improvement. The blu ray player would need an optical port though i presume? Does a blu ray player upscale normal dvd's?

According to the Sony site it has an both optical and coaxial inputs so either of them will do (which means you could use the other for something else) and all current Blu-Ray players I've seen has either of these outputs (usually optical).

There's also an analogue line in, which is useful for running a cable from your TV so that anything that is being played on the TV that isn't a DVD/BluRay can be played through the Sony unit. This is ideal as the speakers will be better than those built into your TV and you'll also get surround sound (albeit Dolby Pro Logic) from most TV/cable/satellite broadcasts.

Yes, all Blu-Ray players upscale DVDs and even if they didn't, your TV scales the image anyway to suit its resolution anyway. As you might expect though, a decent DVD player will often do a better job of DVD playback than a Blu-Ray player simply because it's dedicated unit and therefore less compromised.

Just wondering where you got this and how much you paid?

Thanks

Great price. I must admit having auditoned one of these I'm a little unsure that it is as good as the reviews says, however it is still a remarkable bit of kit.

Picked mine up today after Comet were unable to deliver. No record of my reservation on their system, but they were OK and matched the online price.

why would you use analogue in when you could use the optical in from the tv,and hdmi from ps3 to tv or iam i missing something,also as he has a sony tv he could use the system link to pair the two units,i.e disables tv sound and enables davs10 sound,switches on\off with one remote too.

Only that most LCDs/Plasmas out there in homes don't have optical out ;-)

I only know of a couple of models from each manufacturer that do. Toshiba were the first to do it that I can remember of them Samsung, Sony and co followed suit, but they still don't put it on every model. It's something I think should be, because it is better quality and tidier, but sadly it's not. It's a feature I miss on my 42" Pana PX80.

I think Sky plus boxes and the latest cable boxes have optical out but the majority of freeview boxes/PVRs and older sky/cable boxes just have analogue outs.

EDIT: I see you edited your post to add the last bit. I didn't see he had a Sony TV. And also that you're also obviously a fellow Gers supporter ;-)

Was going to order this but a bit confused.

I have a Panasonic TH 42 PV500B which I believe doesnt have an optical out - at least I can't see it. Currently have my Sky + box connected to it and my PS3. If I bought this, how would I get surround sound from everything from my TV - is it possible? Ideally need the Sky+ and PS3 to give surround sound as well as the DVD player that will come with the system

Thanks

2 optical inputs would be ideal for you but unfortunately this doesn't have this. The HT-IS100 would be absolutely ideal for you (just connect PS3 as your DVD and Blu-Ray player) but unfortunately it will be more expensive for a while yet as it's a newer product.

However, you can still set this up and get surround sound for your PS3 and Sky box. As I said before, connect the PS3 to the unit's optical in for Blu-Ray movies and games. You can then either connect the Sky+ box to the TV in the usual way and run a pair of phono cables from the Sky box's L/R outputs to the Sony if you do all your TV watching on the Sky box. If you use the TV for other things, like older consoles or a camcorder, instead run TV's L/R outputs to the Sony unit for pro logic surround sound. Basically, you wire it up so you never use your TV speaker for anything.

Does that mean the TV sound and the home cinema sound cant work at the same time?
Currently have home cinema connected to TV with HDMI and phono L/R(red/white jacks).The V+ box has HDMI connection to the TV.Does that sound right?
If i connect my PS3 to TV with HDMI will that automatically use the home cinema sound?
Do i need an optical cable for anything?
Sorry for sounding like a numpty!:oops:
