Sony DAV-DZ500F

A muted colour palette lets down an otherwise respectable home cinema performance
Theres something reassuring about buying a home cinema system from an established name. The Sonys price might seem high compared with similarly specified competition, but the DAV-DZ500F is equipped to unleash 5.1 surround soundtracks in your home. Its solid build and designer looks are a step up from the brands DAV-DZ100F entry-level model, adding progressive scan output and multi-channel SACD playback too.
Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Pro-Logic II features
Subwoofer and freestanding speaker connections
A dull but well laid out remote.

A compact act

The compact main unit houses all the systems amplification, including Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound decoding and Dolby Pro-Logic II processing. The matching speaker package employs four height adjustable floor standing speakers, a slender centre speaker and a powerful looking subwoofer. Connectivity is respectable and the DAV-DZ500F is fitted with component video sockets and an RGB-enabled Scart socket. Theres no provision for S-video signals but this is unlikely to Height adjustable inconvenience many users. floor standing Pictures are clean, sharp and up to speakers the brands usual high standards, using the component video feed with progressive scan output enabled and A powerful looking connected to a suitable TV screen. subwoofer RGB signals deliver pleasing picture qualities with our Star Wars III Revenge of the Sith test disc. The colours arent quite as strong and vibrant as weve seen elsewhere, appearing muted and lacking visual punch but easily compensated for via the colour level adjustment on your screen. Basic quality composite video images show up the usual weaknesses of the picture feed, including fringing between brightly coloured objects and some fuzzy details.
Even the slim centre speaker puts in a respectable performance and voices are clear enough to ensure that you dont miss any dialogue. Musical capabilities are similarly impressive and the floor standing satellite speakers actually make a decent sound using Mylos Destroy Rock & Roll album as our test disc. The Nano-Fine tweeter technology makes music sound detailed but its still
easy on the ear and works well opening up SACD material. The slightly flat colour palette with movie images is a minor criticism, but in an competitive market this is enough to lose Sony marks at the price. Elsewhere, the DAV-DZ500F puts in a solid performance befitting of the brands status, making a contender that should be on many shortlists I

Rock & Roll is dead

The floor standing satellite speakers put in a decent performance, coping well with movie effects and filling the room with an involving sound. The DSGX button on the remote controller produces an extra boost and beefs up the subwoofer for a more powerful bass performance that works well with the movies lightsaber sequences.

On cleaning discs

Do not use a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning disc. It may cause a malfunction.

On power sources

AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

On your TVs color

If the speakers should cause the TV screen to have color irregularity, turn off the TV then turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes. If color irregularity should persist, place the speakers farther away from the set. The nameplate is located on the rear of the unit.


On placement
Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system. At high volume, over long periods of time, the cabinet becomes hot to the touch. This is not a malfunction. However, touching the cabinet should be avoided. Do not place the unit in a confined space where ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating. Do not block the ventilation slots by putting anything on the system. The system is equipped with a high power amplifier. If the ventilation slots are blocked, the unit can overheat and malfunction. Do not place the system on a soft surface such as a rug and do not block the ventilation holes. Do not place the system in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical shock.

Caution: This system is capable of holding a still video image or on-screen display image on your television screen indefinitely. If you leave the still video image or on-screen display image displayed on your TV for an extended period of time you risk permanent damage to your television screen. Projection televisions are especially susceptible to this.

On moving the system

When you carry the system, use the following procedure to protect the inner mechanism.
Press FUNCTION repeatedly to select DVD. Make sure that all discs are removed from the system. Press x and "/1 simultaneously. MECHA LOCK appears in the front panel display after STANDBY. Remove the AC power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet (mains).

On operation

If the system is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lenses inside the system. Should this occur, the system may not operate properly. In this case, remove the disc and leave the system turned on for about half an hour until the moisture evaporates. When you move the system, take out any disc. If you dont, the disc may be damaged.

On adjusting volume

Do not turn up the volume while listening to a section with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level section is suddenly played.

On cleaning

Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or benzine. If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Notes about the Discs

On handling discs
To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its edge. Do not touch the surface. Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.


If you experience any of the following difficulties while using the system, use this troubleshooting guide to help remedy the problem before requesting repairs. Should any problem persist, consult your nearest Sony dealer.
The power is not turned on. Check that the AC power cord (mains lead) is connected securely. If PROTECT and UNPLUG appears alternately in the front panel display. Immediately unplug the AC power cord (mains lead) and check the following items. Are the + and speaker cords short-circuited? Are you using only the specified speakers? Is anything blocking the ventilation holes of the system? After checking the above items and fixing any problems, connect the AC power cord (mains lead) again and turn on the system. If the cause of the problem cannot be found even after checking all the above items, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

DVDs can be classified as Film based or Video based software. Film based DVDs contain the same images (24 frames per second) that are shown at movie theaters. Video based DVDs, such as television dramas or sit-coms, displays images at 30 frames (or 60 fields) per second.

Multi-angle function

Various angles of a scene, or viewpoints of the video camera are recorded on some DVDs.

Multilingual function

Several languages for the sound or subtitles in a picture are recorded on some DVDs.

Parental Control

A function of the DVD to limit playback of the disc by the age of the users according to the limitation level in each country. The limitation varies from disc to disc; when it is activated, playback is completely prohibited, violent scenes are skipped or replaced with other scenes and so on.

Playback Control (PBC)

A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable disc that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. The DVD-RW has two different modes: VR mode
Signals encoded on VIDEO CDs (Version 2.0) to control playback. By using menu screens recorded on VIDEO CDs with PBC functions, you can enjoy playing simple interactive programs, programs with search functions, and so on.
Progressive format (sequential scanning)
In contrast to the Interlace format, the progressive format can reproduce 60 frames per second by reproducing all scanning lines (525 lines for the NTSC system). The overall picture quality increases and still images, text and horizontal lines appear sharper. This format is compatible with the 525 progressive format.

Region Code

Version 2.0: You can play high-resolution still pictures and enjoy PBC functions. This system conforms to both versions.
This system is used to protect copyrights. A region number is allocated on each DVD system or DVD disc according to the sales region. Each region code is shown on the system as well as on the disc packaging. The system can play discs that match its region code. The system can also play discs with the mark. Even when the region code is not shown on the DVD, the region limit may still apply.
On a VIDEO CD with PBC (playback control) functions, the menu screens, moving pictures and still pictures are divided into sections called scenes.
The longest section of a picture or music feature on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the entire album in audio software.

Section of a picture or a music piece on a VIDEO CD, CD, or MP3. An album is composed of several tracks (MP3 only).
A compact disc that contains moving pictures. The picture data uses the MPEG 1 format, one of a worldwide standard of digital compression technology. The picture data is compressed to about 1/140 of its original size. Consequently, a 12 cm VIDEO CD can contain up to 74 minutes of moving pictures. VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio data. Sounds outside the range of human hearing are compressed while sounds we can hear are not compressed. VIDEO CDs can hold 6 times the audio information of conventional audio CDs. There are 2 versions of VIDEO CDs. Version 1.1: You can play only moving pictures and sounds.
