Summary: I've had my system for more than a year. I was initially skeptical before I bought the system because of the extremely small size of the speakers. However, I discovered that the sound quality is great. The bass is deep, and midrange and treble are very clear and distinct. I actually think it sounds much better than the Bose system I have in my den. Movies look great with my Sony Bravia. Can't say much about the remote.
Summary: I have read many reviews about this system. The one common problem is the volume. There is a way to increase the volume to each speaker. Here are the steps: 1. The Sony system must be in DVD mode. 2. Press the DISPLAY button on the remote when DVD is not playing. 3. Choose SETUP (the red tool box) 4. Choose CUSTOM 5. Choose SPEAKER SETUP 6. Choose TEST TONE 7. Select ON.
Summary: Though it took a while for me to figure out how to get DVDs to play full screen (thanks to the other reviewer who mentioned about setting the screen resolution 1080!), I love this system. The tiny, discrete speakers give full, clear, robust sound for both music and DVDs. I purchased the system at Best Buy and had them install it, I find that the realistic sounds add so much to the movies and music sounds wonderful.
Summary: I looked at this system at local Costco couple of months ago. I liked it and it met my specs. But, one thing stopped me was the price. Then, last week, local Frys had listed it on sale for $300. I couldn't pass this up. And, I must say I was not disappointed. Installation was simple and easy. The speakers were tiny than I expected. They produce very good sound and fill the up living room.
Summary: If you are looking for a compact home theater you should consider DAV-IS10. First of all the system provides a real surround despite the size. Second of all, it`s stylish and has a upscaler dvd player. The conexions: HDMI - I use the hdmi port with my Sony Bravia Optical input - I use with the PS3 RCA input - I use with airport (itunes) Remember it`s not a professional home theater, but if you want to save space and buy a system with nice features, good surround i think...
Summary: I was initially interested in this system for my office. I wanted not only to have a system for music, iPod and iTunes/Airtunes but to hook up to my Projector as I use this as a home theater area as well (office area here is about 600 square feet). The speakers are incredibly small, something I wanted as to keep the look of the office clean. I worried that they would be too small to produce good sound, boy was I wrong.
Summary: This little box packs an incredible amount of sound. I never expected such clear sound from the tiny little speakers. I have turned the volume up to around 75 (out of 99, I assume) without any distortion. I haven't gone any higher for fear of blowing them out. I have tried the iPod connector and it connected up without a hitch and played fine. Regular CD's didn't use all 5 speakers at first, but after reading the manual, I found a setting that will do that.
Excerpt: "I purchased the Sony Davis- 10 to supplement my expensive 40" Sony KDL 40W2000. The reason I cose this machine is that it won product of the year in What HI FI as I use this magazine as my bible for purchasing consumer electronics. Guess what, they were dead right. This is a beautiful piece of equipment very sexy looking. The satellite speakers are literally golf ball size and are hardly noticeable when set up, but what a fantastic sound they produce ...
Pros: Ease of set up, speakers almost invisible, sexy looking, and superb sound .
Sony is the way forward..... Brillant surround sound and gaming PS3....etc

Summary: I was trying to find a 5.1 system what was small anoth for my bedroom what i could use with my PS3. The SONY 5.1 is perfect the little speakers fit on the tops of my bed posts. ( i can hear people sneeking up on me in moden warfair game ) The 5.1 system comes with a mine mike piece what tunes the speakers to the shape of the room. This Sony suround sound is perfect for game playing, films and music.
