Sony HT-IS100

Sony has introduced the HT-IS100, which they’re calling a micro home theater in a box system. The system features five tiny speakers, three HMI inputs and optional wireless speakers via Sony’s S-Air technology.

The 5.1 channel system, offers 450 watts of power, includes a subwoofer with integrated 32-bit S-Master digital amplifier for superb audio performance.

The system features Sony’s Digital Media Port, which adds control, networking and connectivity options for music playback through various accessories, including a Cradle for iPod (TDM-iP10), a Network Walkman cradle, a PC client device and a Bluetooth adapter (each is sold separately). Optionally, you can add wireless multi-room listening throughout the home using Sony S-AIR Air Station speakers.

Sony’s Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (DCAC) simplifies surround sound setup with the push of a button by automatically adjusting speaker frequency, distance and level.

The system also features BRAVIA Sync for Theater, which integrates its operation with select BRAVIA televisions and home theater products for one-touch play. With the touch of a button, you can automatically turn on and switch inputs, synchronizing connected devices to make operation easier.

Equipped with a Dialogue Audio Enhancer with night mode, the system can adjust audio levels for dialogue when the receiver volume is turned low. Additionally, the updated Portable Audio Enhancer feature improves the clarity and depth of digital audio devices connected to the system by adding information to the audio signal that had been removed during compression.

The HT-IS100 system will be available in July for about $700.
