Summary: I only used it a few times, it sounds great. The thing I don't like about it is that I thought it was wireless and it's not, and the black subwoofer is big and bulky for my place. Plus it being black doesn't really fit in here.
Summary: I had a need to install a HTIB (home theater in a box) unit in the bedroom to enjoy movies on my recently installed 40" LCD Sony Bravia flat panel TV. In researching various options, I was instantly attracted to this unit - simply for the tiny speakers it comes with. The more I researched this product, the more I wanted it. Sony had this product for $200 as a closeout on their website. Unfortunately, I couldn't get that deal. I opted to buy through amazon.
Summary: Excellent buy for a small house, speaker size will sure amaze you. and setup was really simple. Bass is amazing. Really neat night mode button to turn down the bass immediately. It can be extended using the sony air-link that will make it completely wireless. Definitely recommend for someone who is not too much particular in sound dynamics (thats why gave it 4 stars), but just would like to get a good feel of a home theater system, which is easy to use.
It would be a great system if wireless accessories could be bought...

Summary: It is a great system regarding looks, features, sound. I bought it because I wanted very good sound with a system that is not too visible and I believe I did get that. You will be happy if you just set it up as a plug and play and simply go with that and I would guess many people do that. Most likely you will end up with your HD DTS or HD Dolby surround being down converted before it reaches the system but it will still sound good, just not great.
Summary: I live in a 1bd Apartment and my living room is fairly large (for an apt) The sound that this System produces is truly beautiful. I have my HD Digital Box, PS3, Xbox and Wii hooked up and they all sound great. I had a Pioneer Elite VSX-01TXH (paired with POLK speakers) and although that receiver is far superior in features and sound effects (as well as total watts) This little system worked out better for me because it's far more simple and practical (and won't get me...
Summary: I've been searching for a decently price and well sounding audio system for my new setup for quite some time. The thing I REALLY like about this setup is that it eliminates a box from your rack of components. Now all I have is a TIVO and Sony Blu-Ray player in my setup and nothing more which lets me have the "minimalist" look I was going for. I run everything through the HT-IS100 via HDMI. Audio sounds great and video looks incredible.
Summary: I am somewhat of an audiophile so I will tell you now that this unit will not impress the golden ears in absolute terms. It will, however, deliver a believable sound-field so you can really enjoy the movie you are watching. I will try to break down the various virtues/shortfalls: DESIGN and AESTHETICS: 5/5 stars The unit has a high quality finish and a sturdy feel that is not matched by 95% of the HTIB out there.
Summary: So I am not quite an audio nerd, but I am no noob by any stretch. At the price Amazon offers this thing packs a lot of heat, but it's even better when you pick it up on special for $300 flat, I could have spent more and been just as impressed and just as satisfied. 1080i upconvertion from lower source material + 1080p through 3 HDMI inputs which means I can have 4 total sources plugged into it and only 1 HDMI connection to the TV.
