What springs to mind when we talk about home cinema systems is big ugly subwoofers as well as aesthetically displeasing speakers with no where to fit them. Sony HT-IS100 changes all these. Having a subwoofer and 5 satellite speakers, small enough to all fit into one palm, this 5.1 channel home theatre system is very effective at pumping out an outstanding 450 watts of power.
Sony HT-IS100 is really all you need for your home cinema system. It handles high definition surround sounds with ease, decoding Dolby Digital, Dolby Prologic II and DTS Decoding to attain the utmost impact possible from HD and Blu-Ray disc. The integrated digital amplifer found in the subwoofer further reinforces the purity and clarity of the audio and also makes an immersive effect. True cinematic experience is certain.
Sony HT-IS100 offers very generous inputs. With 3 HDMI inputs, you can plug in your games consoles and sky boxes simultaneously. It is even S-Ready for a wireless experience.
A Portable Audio Enhancer function enhances the quality of compressed music such as MP3s files. The system also comes with a built-in RDS FM/AM tuner with 30 station presets. Take advantage to enjoy full surround sound play with your iPod by using the coaxial digital audio input and stereo analogue audio input.
Optimising sound effects in the room is easy with Sony HT-IS100 intelligent sound calibration,so you can be assured of the best acoustics possible.
There is no headache with a growing collection of remote controls. With Sony HT-IS100s BRAVIA Sync, all compatible gadgets are operated with only a single remote.
The single downside with this system is that the display screen cannot be viewed when you are sitting down because it is on top of the subwoofer.
But for its sleek look, tiny size and yet cinematic output, Sony HT-IS100 is still genuinely it. Guests never fail to be in awe over the tiny speakers!
