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's golf ball-sized surround speakers have returned in this new package. Is it a hole in one or a shout of 'Fore'?

Stylish, ultra-compact and capable of delivering the goods with all manner of sources, this is a fine piece of home cinema kit

Sony HT-IS100

 

This is genuine surround sound for the speaker-phobic ? give it a try, you might just be surprised

Proper- surround sound from unfeasibly small satellites ; tremendously simple to setup and use ; taut, chunky bass

Subwoofer requires careful positioning ; won't decode HD audio ; mid-range lacks a bit of body

Sound Quality You Won't Believe

 

This is such a great system. The speakers are small so they do not take up much space, but still deliver amazing sound. The integration with S-AIR technology, makes this a must have!

Small Size, Big Sound, Easy to Configure

Ports not easily accessible

Very nice product

 

Purchased this product to use with a Xbox 360. Product arrived in record time. Ordered on Tuesday arrived on Wednesday before noon. Setup was easy, calibration of the speakers was pretty simple and the sound is great and that is not just my opinion,...

Very Happy with Output for Size.

 

The speakers are TINY but deliver good sound; they also come with wall mounts. The Sub is good as well--nice bass.

Size of speakers (golfball), Setup and plugging everything in, wireless speaker option for back 2, great output for size

Display face is on top (facing ceiling)

Surprisingly Big Sound

 

I was pleasantly surprised by these speakers. I was looking for a speaker system that was low profile but had good sound, and these have GREAT sound. The subwoofer is powerful and the Bravia Sync feature is perfect. No longer do I need 4 remotes to...

tiny speakers, easy setup, lots of features

input access is somewhat difficult

great system for the space conscious

 

I researched and purchased multiple systmes. This by far is the best system for the money! Though the speakers are small the sound is huge! The only draw back is the sub-woofer's display is on the top, making it impossible to read when using the...

SUB WOOFER DISPLAY DESIGNED TO FACE UPWARDS AND OUT OF VIEW
