The BDV-IS1000 also offers BD-Live, 24p True Cinema™-capable performance, and the xross media bar™ icon-based graphical user interface for simplified navigation and operation.

A couple of reviewers have commented on the difficulty of setting up the rear air speaker assembly. I had no problems whatsoever and they do work flawlessly. Dont be fooled by the size of those small 'golfball' size speakers - they do deliver bright, crisp and very accurate sound. The size of these speakers was an important consideration in buying this system as I did not want to mar the appearance of my living room decor with the installation of large speakers, so in that regard these small speakers (2" x 2") are perfect for my needs. Once assembled there is a vast array of sound formats to choose from and I think it's worth spending some time tuning the system to your particular liking. I was a little dissapointed in the factory settings right out of the box but after a few tweaks with the bass, treble and mid tone controls I had everything sounding awesome. Speaker calibration is a breeze with Sony's easy setup procedure. The supplied remote cam be configured to operate the TV, Cable or Sattelite box and the Blue ray / Amplifier. I use this system with my Sony 52'' KDL LCD TV and I am truly blown away by the whole Blue ray experience of combining a superb picture with an awesome sound system. What more could you want?

I purchased this to pair up with my new 52" Bravia HDTV. Needless to say, I was excited when I ripped open the box. The setup was somewhat easy, and after I was able to pair up the rear speakers and sub unit, the sound was amazing while watching TV. What really bothered me was the sound quality of the rear speakers. While watching a movie on cable, the sound was excellent and crystal clear. However, once a Blu Ray disc or DVD was put into the player, the sound was intermittent from the rear speakers. I though I could overlook it, but it got annoying after a while. The picture quality of the Blu Ray player was amazing though. Even a regular DVD was upconverted to near high definition quality. Even with that being a plus, I had high hopes for this system. In the end, I decided to return the system to my retailer and give SONY another chance by switching to the new BDV E300.

Amazing Sound ....

By JhonyCash1990

from Long Island, NY

Comments about Sony BD/DVD Home Theater System:

I love it.!!!! Was thinking to buy a Bose system, but Sony made here a nice set ,the system itself is beautiful. Finally was in a financial situation to be able to afford a SONY , and have been simply amazed. Nothing that I can say about this product would do its justice. Simply the absolute best product on the market. Completely revamped our home theatre experience. The SAir was very easy for set up..no sure why people had a hard time on that.

    Just needs a little foil

    By Anonymous

    from Ohio

    Comments about Sony BD/DVD Home Theater System:

    As many other reviewers reported, I had trouble pairing the S-AIR surround speakers with the main unit. I stepped through SONY's FAQ page only to learn the problem was due to interference from the HDMI cable. I found a suggestion on another post recommending you wrap the HDMI cable AND the radio transmitter card in aluminum foil. This did the trick. Speakers sound great. No need to purchase another expensive HDMI cable. Hope this helps!

    Comments about Sony BD/DVD Home Theater System:

    This is a great system,was not thinking of buying it; after buying it was easy to setup. This is what wrong with rear speaker, if you have a wireless router at home make sure your router is broadcasting in Channel 6 and set the Rear speaker channel 11 and change off. check manual for setting rear speaker. If your router and the rear speaker are on the same channel both will stop broadcasting. Very good system.

    Tiny powerhouse !!

    By foobar1973

    from Southern CA

    Comments about Sony BD/DVD Home Theater System:

    My biggest ignorance was that I did not know Blu-ray players can play DVD's too. On researching, I found that in fact they not only play DVDs, they even upscale them to 1080p using HDMI cables. This was a no-brainer then after my earlier Sony DVD Dream System HTIB died (after 7 strong years I must add !!) So they expectations were high.
    Researched a lot online for Sony systems. Had few constraints - We have a 18 month old running and pulling things so did not want some tall speakers easily accessible around the TV. Needed something that can be hidden for small enough to put in some different place if needed (which thankfully haven't had to do that yet)
    The small speakers are just awesome .. I could not afford those small Bose speakers but have not complaints about these.
    My biggest concern while buying this system were the number of reviews that indicated that the rear speakers don't work and the problems they had to go thru Support etc. Thankfully I did not have any of those. Not sure if Sony has improved on that or if the other users did anything wrong but mine were setup in no time at all. Although its funny that they advertise it as wireless speakers. Actually the player and the rear unit talk to each other wirelessly using the card. The rear speakers still need wires to connect to the rear unit. Thankfully there run from behind the couch. So it does save running 1 wire from front to back of the room
    Both Blu-ray and regular DVD's play awesome ..
    My biggest beef with Sony about this product is that there is no HDMI cable provided. So I had to waste an hour deciding which cable to buy. They range from $20-$150. I had read that it does not matter but did not want to take a chance so just bought the 8ft Best Buy brand (rocket fish or something )and it works fantastic ,.
    My earlier Deream System had great audio modes but this new one doesnt have too many but they are satisfactory. I usually use OMNI-DIR. Regular Audio Music plays good too.
    There is no direct interface for ipod (unless of course you buy a $80 dock)
    Maybe I am still learning how to use it but I have notives that at least once ,the movie did not start at the place where I left it off - its quite possible that I did something wrong too.
    I dint want to sound too negative in this review - I love the product (as seen in my rating) but not much point in talking about things that work flawlessly.
    I hope this review helps you to make an educated decision. Thanks and Good Luck !!

    Comments about Sony BD/DVD Home Theater System:

    This system exceeds my expectations, providing a level of performance, simplicity, and design elegance not enjoyed before. The system integrates very well with the Sony 40 inch XBR7 TV purchased in December 2008. The main unit is unobtrusive and fits nicely into the TV stand cabinet. The system set up was fairly simple and was completed without mishap. The system sound quality is excellent for the family room. The unobtrusive base module has a balanced range and clarity, while the small elegant satellite speakers provide a very nice transparant sound. The wireless rear speakers work flawlessly. The blueray disc performance is excellent, which when combined with the sound quality, makes watching movies more enjoyable than before. Overall, I am very impressed and pleased with this system!! Thanks Sony and ABT!

    I compared this to a $700 more Bose system they had a at local store. The Bose of course sounded beautiful. The assistant then turned on the BvD 1000 and I was shocked how very well it sounded compared to the Bose. I than asked if they can play a movie to see if there was any difference. The Sony blew it out of the ballpark. What made the difference was that the very small speakers put out very tight noise free highs but was very puzzled how it could re-produce Mid range vocals. The assistant then pointed me to the sub speaker system. He told me the Sub box has 2 speaksers one is actually the sub and the other on top is the Mid Woofer, where all the Mids you are hearing is actually coming from. The placement of the box is key, told me center of the room is perfect or close as possible. Which fools you to think all range of sound is coming from the very small speakers. The setup is one of the easiest. If you own a PS3 / PSP its almost a mirrior of the OS. Setting up the Sound+S-Air Unit is simple just make sure you set the S-Air Unit as Surround Back which is a sliding switch from Surround to Surround Back. Since this is not 7.1 surround. like the higher end model of this. You can add more S-Air Units which is Wireless Speakers to almost anywhere around your house/back/or front Yard as long as it is in range of 140ft. Further away it can pick-up noise if your house has tons of wireless electronics as mine. Which that can not be helped. Speaker Config as in decrease/increase dbs per speaker controls + Bass/Mids/Treb controls are very nice. Oh BTW when the Base kicks in from movies you might want to turn down the bass dbs. At First hookup it was freakin LOUD! Music wise there are no heart stoppin Bass. Classical music very crisp specialy the highs and lows. Rock= nice Hard Bass sound, highs also. Rap= umm not bad sounded like my bose system in my denali. But either way This was made very well for movies specially BLUE. Sound overall JUST AMAZIN.
