The DAV-HDX589W is a mid-range model in Sony's BRAVIA line of home theater systems. Of Sony's current DVD surround sound systems, it has the greatest out-of-the-box wireless capabilities, with S-AIR rear speakers and a receiver/amplifier enabling the two rear speakers to function wirelessly, without the purchase of add-ons. Wireless functionality can also be extended to the other speaker units, or to other rooms, but only with the purchase of additional S-AIR products. The 1000W, 5.1-channel system is otherwise similar to other models in the line, with floor-standing front speakers, a 5-disc CD/DVD changer, an iPod dock for easy music playback in surround sound, and 1080p DVD upscaling via HDMI, for enhanced picture quality. Among other features is a Night Mode which makes some dialogue easier to hear. Additionally, an included calibration wizard aims to simplify the process of installing a home theater system.
