What can I say? After the demo, I was blown away. I thought it was some kind of trick and Sony had pulled the wool over my eyes to get me to drop a thousand big ones. I went to every tiny speaker and covered it with my hand to check as to how much sound was coming out. Trust me, there is power in those golf ball sized speakers. I was so impressed, bought it immediately.
When I got it home it was like Christmas, and I had it out of the box in less than 5 minutes. All of the speakers are color coded, so it's really idiot proof. Because I didn't mount anything to the wall it took me a little under 30 minutes to set everything up. The two rear speakers are wireless, but not really. They connect to a receiver box that you keep in the back of the room so there is still wires. When I turned everything on, I did the quick setup and synced my 57" Bravia TV and haven't looked back!
So here are my pros and cons of this system:
* very easy to set up
* small speakers don't interfere with my decor or overwhelm my small apartment.
* network updates.
* Blu-Ray 2.0
* S-AIR technology (wireless rear speakers)
* two HDMI Inputs
* Aesthetically speaking, it's beautiful.
* price, you can get a PS3 and a traditional home theater for cheaper, separately.Read more ›
I liked the idea of a Receiver/Blu-ray player all-in-one system. I
was also intrigued with (and a bit wary of) the wireless S-AIR rear speaker technology. I ordered the system on line and when it arrived I was very pleased at how quick and easy it was to set up and connect. But as feared, I had no luck in getting the wireless rear speakers to work. (By the way, they're not totally wireless. Although no wires need to be run from the main receiver, each rear speaker must be connected via speaker wire to the S-AIR surround amplifier, which itself must be placed near the rear speakers, be plugged into an electrical outlet, and have an unobstructed signal view line to the main receiver unit. That was OK with me since I could place the small amplifier on a lamp table next to my sofa and hide the rear speaker wires connected to the amplifier behind my sofa located in the back of my living room.)
The "paring operation" that must be performed in order to wirelessly connect the rear speakers with the main unit via a radio signal transmission was very frustrating and failed every time I attempted it. I ended up calling Sony's Customer Service and spent about an hour and a half on the phone with a representative trying to get the speakers to sucessfully "pair" and work properly - to no avail.Read more ›
While some speakers will pair with the receiver right out of the box; just plug and play, sometimes it is not the case. And the instructions fail to omit one key element vital to the pairing procedure.
After being unable to pair the speakers, I was ready to return my set as well. But then I tried something. I also purchased the AIR-SA10, the accessory wireless S-Air speaker system. I tried seeing if the receiver would pair with the S-Air speaker system and it did right out of the box. I was wondering why my receiver would pair with the speaker system and not the rear speakers. So I swapped out the "good" S-Air radio transmitter with what I thought was a "faulty" radio transmitter in my rear speaker amplifier and still the speakers would not pair. So obviously everything was working correctly as evidenced in the fact that the receiver was able to pair with the other unit and it was not the radio transmitter.
My experience with pairing a Bluetooth hands free and a cell phone reminded me that both units have to be looking for one another. In the case of the BDV-IS1000, the same thing needs to be done as well. The instructions tell you to go to system settings on the receiver and hit the set pairing button to have the receiver search for the speakers.Read more ›
