Sony HTIS100

 

Sony's latest Invisible Theatre package, the HTIS100, is a very unobtrusive system. Its main allure is its incredibly tiny speakers. Only as large as ...

Tiny, great treble reproduction, plenty of inputs

Poor bass and mid-range

As a surround system the HTIS100 works well — positional audio sounds great. Treble is an equally strong point, but the system is let down by bloated, muddy sounding mid-range and bass from the subwoofer.

Sony is the best!

 

This is perfect! I purchased one for $179 from my local Bestbuy. Sony has a strange marketing system where great products like this one are misunderstood or over-viewed completely by customers.

Small size, strong sound, connectivity and slick design. Bravia users will get the most from this unit

No "on display" setting

Consumer review by:

Very good for its small size. Good set of features.

 

The main reason for getting this unit is its size. It does not have the great audiophile sound of a much larger system, but considering it's small diminutive size, it's outstanding. The subwoofer does a nice job of creating a nice full rich sound.

1.Small form factor ; 2. Good sound ; 3. HDMI switching ; 4. DMPort (iPod adapter) included

None so far ; One a side note, getting the optional wireless surround transmitter/receiver from Sony can run you pretty much the cost of the whole unit. Go for the ROCKETFISH unit from Best Buy. It is easy to set up and works great

Great System for the Price

 

I was somewhat skeptical that such small speakers could produce decent sound. After having the system for a couple weeks now, I?ve come to love it. I live in a condo so I needed a system that I could enjoy even at low levels and it covers all the...

Great HDMI switching, upscaling and audio pass-thru capabilities. Nice sound from very small speakers

Doesn't come with a universal remote so if you don't have a Sony cable box or TV you're out of luck
