The Sony DAV-TZ140 DVD Home Theater Multi-Region System just might be the ultimate in home entertainment. It's certainly got the features, specs and that famous Sony quality to be a leading contender for the title.
Start out with 300W of audio power. Crank it up to full power (not recommended) and the people down the street will complain about the sound-even if you live on a farm. At more reasonable volume levels, you can enjoy a wide variety of compact discs and DVD formats-the kind you buy and the ones you burn yourself.
Of course the DAV-TZ140 can upscale your DVDs to near high definition quality. If you don't tell your friends that your new home theater is playing DVDs some of them will assume you're showing Blu-ray discs. The DAV-TZ140 has several Dolby variations plus a few of Sony's own sound modes, including one that improves the sound of highly compressed MP3 files.
You'll find the USB port comes in handy in a couple of ways. First it's your connection to your iPod or iPhone. You don't need a dedicated dock to move music between your DAV-TZ140 and your portable music player. In fact, you can rip whole CDs to USB devices. You can plug in a portable music player or a USB flash drive so you transfer music to your PC or Mac.
If you own other Sony products you've probably heard of BRAVIA Sync. That's the feature that lets you control any compatible device that's connected to your DAV-TZ140 by HDMI cable from a single remote. And the DAV-TZ140's remote is pretty smart. Even without using BRAVIA Sync you can switch between watching TV, listening to the built-in FM radio, watching a DVD disc or playing back MP3s from whatever you've attached to the USB port with just one touch of the remote.
