The Sony HT-DDW990 is a value home theater system priced at $299, that is loaded with features. The standout feature of this system is its HDMI switching capabilities (2 HDMI inputs). This system can deliver up to 900 Watts of total power: 140 Watts from each of the 5 speakers (6 Ohm), and another 200 Watts from the powered subwoofer.
The included A/V receiver has ample inputs and outputs: including 3 component video, 2 HDMI video, 4 composite video, 2 digital optical audio, 1 digital coax audio, and 6 analog audio inputs.
It should be noted that the HDMI standard used on this model only supports up to 1080i and cannot process 1080p HD signals. Also, the receiver does not process the audio portion of HDMI, meaning you have to hook up your audio separately.
Released April, 2007. See the cheaper still Sony HT-DDW790 delivering similar specs (minus HDMI) for $199.
