Sound is okay - be preparred for a S-Air device headache!

Vince F, Amazon
27 August 2009
  • Summary: I read the review on this product and many seem to share a common theme regarding a problematic S-Air device and unable to keep the devices paired. My concerns were eased reeading some of the feedback about pairing procedures. Also problems seemed to be isolated so I thought chances were slim it could happen to me as the devices are close together. After speding a hour on set-up (very simple), I fired up the unit and low and behold no sounds from rear speakers.

BDVIS1000 Wireless Remote Speakers

Alfred C. Eckhart "Al Eckhart", Amazon
28 April 2009
  • Summary: As delivered, the remote speaker amp will not link with the main amp to provide surround sound. The instructions are not clear about how to fix the problem but it may be interference from a wireless router signal, a common piece of equipment in the computer age. Although the remaining three front speaker work fine, I would not buy this poduct again, and don't recommend it.

Disappointed

Franklin R. Ostrowski "Oldguy", Amazon
9 April 2009
  • Summary: Elegant small system for those who cannot hide cables for rear speakers. The video portion of the package is truly great, the upscaling on standard dvd is impressive and blu-ray is blu-ray. However, like many others, I absolutely could not get the rear speakers to pair with the main unit. 2 hours with tech support did not help, although they were quick to answer and did their best.

A good system for the money

Matthew Gibbens "The "i" hater", Amazon

  • Summary: Setup and calibration of the system is a breeze. If you have used a psp or Playstation, then you will be familiar with the menu setup which is user friendly. No problems with the S-Air rear speakers. Sound quality is amazing for such tiny little speakers. Great for an apartment setup. The only problem I have run into (and the reason I did not give it 5 stars) is its inability to play Dvds that are from 20th Century Fox.

Real good HTIB except for...

R. Sarkar, Amazon

  • Summary: As far as the blu ray picture/video is concerned, it is fantastic. I have a Sony KDL-40XBR7 TV which is a perfect compliment. The audio is reasonably good if your rear speakers work so that you can enjoy the whole package. The sound volume is kind of low though. Like everybody else, my rear speakers paired only after the following with intermittent results: 1. Turn the wireless router I had nearby off. 2. Reset the player from Resetting->All settings menu. 3.
