The home theater system made by Sony is truly spectacular. The DAV-IS10 is a complete package by itself. It is a home entertainment system that is really easy to use. An average person can set this up in no time. It attracts buyers from all walks of life with its black finish and those slick hidden controls that light up once touched. It also has speakers that actually fits in the palm of a hand.

Additional Features

Sony's DAV-IS10 can even be connected to your Network Walkman or your mobile phone. Attaching this to your home network in able to share music collections can also be done. Using the Digital Media Port, these things are possible. Also, this home system needs about 550 watt power and even if this system is placed in a large room, it is still able to produce high quality of sound. Just give it around 30 seconds to be able to set up itself.

Review Summary

The Sony DAV-IS10 is a highly attractive digital media player solution with plenty of features, and picture quality with the very best systems. Sony DAV-IS10 home cinema system boasts five tiny satellite speakers, each one the size of a golf ball, and delivers a powerful sound quality. The build quality is impressive too, with each speaker made from solid, weighty materials. But it is not just the speakers that are amazing. The robust main DVD unit is small, compact and finished in sumptuous gloss black, with a row of illuminated touch-sensitive controls on top and a front loading disc slot. It also features similarly styled active subwoofer, capable of producing 2 x 100W of midrange and bottom-end power. On the back of the unit is a useful range of connections, the most important one being the HDMI output. It is linked to component and composite video outputs, plus optical and coaxial digital audio inputs, which come in handy if you want to enjoy 5.1 surround from a Sky+ box or separate DVD deck. Inside the system is a wide range of features, including video upscaling to 720p and 1080i, but unfortunately not 1080p. The main unit plays DVD, DVD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, CD and CD-RW discs, and will read JPEG, MP3 and DivX files. An added bonus, the main unit possesses a Digital Media Port, which enables connection to a variety of optional Sony-made adapters, like Walkman and iPod cradles and Bluetooth or network wireless audio adapters. Inside those speakers is Sony's 32-bit S-Master digital amp and unique sound processing technology. The Sony DAV-IS10 is easy to setup. The main unit links to the subwoofer with one cord, and each speaker has a colour coded cable that plugs into the bottom of the subwoofer. As a digital media player the DAV-IS10 is superb.

  • DAV-IS10 connections

    i'm interested in the speakers, but would like to keep the rest of my existing home theatre components. i've found the speakers...but my question is about connections. are the connections on the back of the speakers the same as standard speakers?

    Answered by gadgitgit 2009-02-09:

    The speakers are connected by a spring clip at the rear for the exposed + and - wires. This clips in securely and a brushed steel cover screws in over the top to give a seamless sleek finish
