Offering a stylish solution for the modern high-definition home theater, Sony today introduced the HT-IS100 BRAVIA Theatre Micro System.
The system is designed with five utra small speakers roughly the size of a golf ball and includes three 1080p HDMI inputs with repeater functionality and support for eight channels of uncompressed audio.
With the ability to add optional wireless rear surround speakers and
multi-room wireless speakers that configure automatically, the HT-IS100
system can be set up with fewer wires and without complicated wireless IP
The 5.1 channel system, with 450 watts (RMS) of power, includes a subwoofer
with integrated 32-bit S-Master digital amplifier.
Featuring Sony?s S-AIR technology, you can add wireless multi-room
listening throughout the home using Sony S-AIR Air Station speakers, which
are sold separately. Television audio and music can be transmitted from the
main system to multiple rooms throughout the home by connecting the Air
Station into a power outlet. An optional speaker kit (WAHT-SA10 sold
separately) delivers audio wirelessly to rear speakers, eliminating the need
to run speaker wire from the front to the back of the room.
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

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.
The HT-IS100 system will be available in July for about $700 at Sony Style
stores, online through www.sonystyle.com.
