 The most affordable of Sony’s BRAVIA DAV-HDX home theatre systems, the DAV-HDX265 also boasts the fewest features. While it still features a 1080p upscaling 5-CD/DVD changer with HDMI output and full 5.1 surround sound, it lacks the S-AIR wireless speaker technology of all the other players in the line (for $30 more, the DAV-HDX275 player supports S-AIR, and wireless speakers can be purchased for $149.99 direct from Sony). Like its more expensive counterparts, the DAV-HDX265 does feature BRAVIA Sync, which surrenders some of the player’s control functions to any Sony BRAVIA HDTV it is plugged into, allowing for simplified set-up and playback of media. It also features a dedicated , for connecting DMP-compatible accessories (sold separately) and managing digital media.

 

Features
  • Upconverting 5-CD/DVD changer with HDMI output
