Sony BDV-IS1000 is pretty impresive...

dsummerfan69, Ebay
4 February 2010
  • 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.

Just wish it didn't go out of production!

  • 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.

Met my expectations.

H. Ragin, Amazon

  • 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.

Nice sounding Bluray Home Theater

EliasV, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • 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.

Nice Blu-Ray Theatre in a Box System

consinova, Ebay
19 December 2009
  • 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.

Great bedroom system

Ted Peters, Amazon
29 October 2009
  • Summary: I was using a first-generation standalone Blu-ray player and relying on my HDTV's built-in speakers. I wanted 1) better sound quality with surround and some bass; 2) better/faster Blu-ray player; and 3) more source capability and flexibility. I needed something that would take up no more space in the bedroom, and not require wires between the front and back of the room. This system has been a success in all areas.

Nice HTIB but has some flaws

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 July 2009
  • Summary: I found this unit on sale for considerably less than the list price I saw 6 months ago, and it seemed ideal for my needs. I was looking for a system that had a nice satellite-cube 5.1 audio, a BD player, HTIB, and wireless rear speakers. Plus, I have a Sony flat panel and I've always been a big fan of Sony. I brought the unit home and started to unpack. First, no cables for connecting to the TV. For a BD system the lack of an HDMI cable seemed like a cheap oversight.

Tiny powerhouse !!

S. Mulay, Amazon
5 July 2009
  • Summary: My biggest ignorance was that I did not know Blu-ray players can play DVD's too. On researching, I found that in fact they not only play DVDs, they even upscale them to 1080p using HDMI cables. This was a no-brainer then after my earlier Sony DVD Dream System HTIB died (after 7 strong years I must add !!) So they expectations were high. Researched a lot online for Sony systems.

S-Air works--- Tinfoil- Sounds good, small footprint-

D. Rokes, Amazon
18 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought one elsewhere and it works great for the price and the included Blu-ray player. Not Top of line but over all a good box for normal people with modern inputs. For those who are having S-Air problem. (It is not Broken, its your enviornment) 1. HDMI cable causes interference, route away from S-air card and Wrap in tinfoil. 2. Turn off Wireless, WII, Home,etc due to interference. 3. Sync S-Air plugged in next to reciever.

VERY GOOD SYSTEM!

Nedim Heto "nheto", Amazon
3 May 2009
  • Summary: Before buying this system, I had read all the reviews and still had decided to go for it. I have liked Sony for some time now, and think they put out great products. When I got all the components out of the box it looked quite intimidating to put the system together. The main unit is gigantic - don't be fooled - it really is the biggest thing I have ever seen. On the other hand it is also the most beautiful piece of equipment I now own.
