Sony HTP-BD3IS review

 

Recession causing you to rethink your cinema outlay, or just want a small-room system?

Blu-ray erformance and sub-sat integration

Struggles when the action gets full-on and comlicated ; The subwoofer looks like a dog ; BD slow

This full 5.1 Blu-ray home cinema system has satellite speakers the size of golf balls. So is it a hole-in-one or ‘fore'!

It feels a tad cobbled together, but the BD3iS delivers great visuals and physics-defying sound from its golf ball-sized speakers

Sony HTP-BD3IS review

 

The idea that you could possibly get half-decent, Hollywood-friendly sound out of speakers roughly the size of a Ping-Pong ball seems crazy. But the Sony HTP-BD3IS manages to do it, offering both style and substance

Smallest satellite speakers we've ever seen ; Speakers produce surprisingly good audio ; Blu-ray pictures look sharp and colourful ; Reasonable feature set

Low-frequency audio can sound detached ; System doesn't feel entirely unified

Conclusion We'd fully expected the Sony HTP-BD3IS to be all style and no substance. But, although it's not perfect by any means, its performance is far less compromised by the tiny size of its speakers than we'd thought possible
