Sony's DAV-IS10 is a home theatre system with a difference. Designed to operate in space constrained environments, its satellite speakers are absolute...

Good bass, tiny speakers, nice surround

Flat mid range and treble, not a 'big' sound, receiver lacks features

If you live in a space constrained environment, Sony's DAV-IS10 may be a great home theatre solution for you. While the audio quality isn't incredible it is definitely above average, and the tiny speakers will fit in basically any location, bringing...

Sony DAV-IS10 review

 

Sony's DAV-IS10 is almost a wonder of modern technology. It's an unbelievably small system that doesn't make any compromises when it comes to large scale performance

Diminutive design ; Automatic calibration ; Ease of use ; Integrated video upscaling ; Outstanding sound and picture quality

No 1080p upscaling

Conclusion Sony's DAV-IS10 offers the ideal balance between discreet aesthetics and outstanding performance. Your better half will no longer be able to make excuses for not allowing you a decent surround sound system in your living room

Even after two weeks of testing we still find it hard to get over the size of the DAVIS10's speakers. These miniature marvels can be hidden around your living room easily, and guests will wonder where the sound is coming from.

Sony DAV-IS10 DVD Home Cinema System

 

It's a lovely little system, so let's hope the other half agrees.

After first whipping it out of the box, we were sceptical about the DAV-IS10's ability to produce the sort of power needed for an awesome home cinema experience. But after hearing the loud and sophisticated sound bursting from these diminutive...

The teeny tiny satellites from Sony's new home cinema system are barely bigger than golf balls, but pack a sound as punchy as a Tiger Woods drive

This home theatre system's satellites fill your room with incredible sound, without filling it with incredibly large speakers

Expert review by:

Sony DAV-IS10

 

The Sony DAV-IS10 is a likeable system with incredibly tiny speakers but it stops quite short of a hearty recommendation.

Very cute ; Surround sound is impressive ; Small, easy to hide satellites

Large, impossible-to-hide sub ; DVD performance isn't up to par ; Silver wiring stands out in any living space ; No HDMI or video switching

Lastly, external sources were reasonably well served, on the other hand, and feeding a Monster optical cable to an external tuner demonstrated that dialogue from digital TV was intelligible, but perhaps a little thin.

Sony DAV-IS10 is home cinema system made out of solid materials. The DVD unit of the system is finished and compact in glossy black, like all the rest of the system, with a row of touch-sensitive controls on the top portion with a disc loading slot up...

You’ll love the near-HD video quality and seismological bass, your other half will love the unobtrusive satellite speakers, and everyone will appreciate a classy disc unit that doesn’t look like it was designed by a ten-year old. Classy. Sony DAV-IS10...

Even the stylish main unit, which carries a front-loading disc drawer and touch sensitive controls for an integrated DVD player, measures only 21cm wide. The diminutive dimensions of the surrounding system are granted by a larger powered system that...

Stylish and discreet design, ease of use, superb sound and picture performance

No 1080p upscaling

Sony is muscling in on the pint-sized speaker segment of the "home theatre in a box" market.
