    Hi,

    I've been very interested in getting the Sony DAV-LF1 amp + speaker (inc 2 wireless rear speakers) / subwoofer combo.

    Does anyone have any experience with it?

    Would it be a good choice to make? Also, does anyone know when it was released? I don't want to buy it if it's going to be superceded in a few months' time.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have had the DAV-LF1 since mid december 2004 and that was when it came out in Denmark. I bought it primarily because of the design and the wireless rear speakers. Overall I'm really satisfied with - here's a quick list of pro's/cons's:

    Pros:

    - Design
    - Really nice finish with lots of aluminum
    - Ability to wall mount all speakers and head unit
    - Wireless rear speakers
    - Surround performance
    - Night mode for surround (usefull when you have kids :) )
    - Super Audio CD compatible (Norah Jones sounds really good :thumbsup: )
    - All connections are made in the subwoofer/amplifier and only one cords going into the main unit

    Cons:
    - Lack a possibilities to adjust e.g. bass and treble
    - I'm not impressed with the sound quality and bass when listening to more 'upbeat'/modern music
    - The wire for connecting the headunit with the subwoofer/amplifier is fairly short

    As you can see there are more pro's than con's and I can fully recommend buyiny the DAV-LF1.

    There's also a test at: http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/displayreview.php?reviewid=5515

    Best regards,
