Sony unveils iPod-ready home theater system


Sony has announced a new iPod-ready 5.1 channel home-theater-in-a-box system, the DAV-IS10. The DAV-IS10 sports Sony’s Digital Media Port input, which is compatible with Sony’s TDM-iP1 iPod Dock. The system also features Bravia Theater Sync, which uses the HDMI port to communicate with Bravia televisions, a single disc DVD/CD player/receiver, and DVD upscaling to either 720p or 1080i when connected via HDMI. The Sony DAV-IS10 micro home theater system will be available in July for $800.

I see flaws:

First, any points earned by having small ‘golf ball’ sized speakers are lost when considering the black cord dangling from it.

Next, can that subwoofer BE any bigger.

And, if you have to buy the iPod dock separately, can it really be considered ‘iPod ready’.  Hell, by that token, any system is iPod ready…just buy an iPod dock.

Finally, don’t Sony speakers suck?  Did that change?  Are they cool now?  Cheaper brands like Altec Lansing sound much better.
