Summary: It's a nice systems with very good sound. The main unit should have been much more slimmer than what really is. The golf speakers are so small that they can be hide anywhere just make sure to adjust them well for a better dub quality sound. The image from the Blue-Ray is also quite impresive. If you live in an apartment this system is loud enough.
Summary: I have used the sound system for barely a month,but just love every bit of it.I hope sony comes up with a superior product than this one since they took it out of production.Considering it's features & sound quality,i wanted to purchase another one by the end of the year for my other family. Though it's a bit expensive,i prefer it to the bose because of the blue ray feature and digital sound.
Summary: I bought this unit regardless all the reviews about the rear speakers not pairing. It's a solvable problem, it's a pity Sony hasn't offered a more hassle-free solution (i.e. shipping the transceiver adaptor when purchasing the unit# Cons: - Pairing of rear speakers: I've experienced the same wireless connectivity issues as all others. When you use a cheap HDMI cable and set the system's output resolution higher than 480i, the rear speakers won't pair.
Summary: AFter reading my reviews of this product, the main concern I had was the connectivity of the wireless rear speakers. My family room is tiny, 10 x 11 with a diagonal corner wall for a fireplace. I needed a small unit and wireless rear speakers because I have no basement and hardwood floors. The set-up went without a hitch and the golfball sized speakers are unobtrusive in the room. Sound and full-featured BR Disc player work quite well.
Summary: The Sony BDV-IS1000 is a Blu-Ray Theatre in a box system. This system was manufactured by Sony to compete with Bose and their small speaker system and was released in 2008. This system originally retailed for about $1,000 but you can now purchase them for about $500. At the $500 price the system is well worth it because the quality is better than other systems at the $500 price point. I purchased this system for two reasons.
Summary: No offense to those who gave this system a favorable sound review, but you have to be deaf in one ear to miss the shortcomings with these tiny TINNY speakers. Look closely at all the pictures, the one that shows them almost as tall as the main unit is photo-shopped. These speakers are smaller than a golf ball and can only carry the upper frequencies of a tweeter.
Summary: I've owned this product for about 6-months.This thing was a nightmare to set up.I've setup dozens of stereo & audio video systems for friends & family.This thing took over 3 hours on 2 two different nights , until i called tech support on the 3rd night the rear speakers would not pair up.
Summary: Thought of buying a new home theatre to replace my old onkyo HT, had plans of buying BOSE V20,but saw this HT online and was impressed by the golf speakers , so thought would give it a try. The feedbacks from customers that the rear speakers are not working well (some problem with pairing S- Air) made me think twice but eventually bought this product.
