    from a blurb about it:

    Sony’s new higher-end audio system line up includes a miniature 5.1 speaker system designed to complement its Bravia range of LCD TVs.

    Following on from last year's Sony DAVIS10 micro satellite speaker system, the new HTIS100 comprises of 5 speakers about the size of a gold ball, but with a claimed 50W of power as well as a 200W subwoofer.

    The speakers feature HDMI connectivity, support 24fps playback and Bravia Sync, which allows you to use the one remote to control all your Sony devices.

    Also new to the audio range is an iPod micro system (CMTBX20i) – a CD-player and speaker system with a built-in iPod dock; a Bluetooth micro system (CMTBX50BT) which lets you stream music to and from other devices wirelessly.

    Rounding out the line up is the Gigajuke (NASE35HD) – a modern jukebox of sorts, this system sports an 80GB hard drive so you can store up to 15,000 songs in its internal memory and play them from the speakers. It also has a CD player and AM/FM tuner.

    "As the way we listen to music continues to evolve, so does our need for connectivity and
    compatibility, so it's great to be able to offer products with Bluetooth streaming and integrated iPod features," said Sony Australia Product Manager Audio Kathy Hill.

    "The new systems showcase sleek and simple designs that are not only easy to use but look good in the living room or bedroom. Most importantly, they produce great sound, whether playing a CD, MP3 track or Bluetooth-streamed audio."

    The S-AIR kit wasn't available and they couldn't give be a price for it either!

    This is my 1st surround sound system so it is really hard to say how good it is, however it does everything I need it to, it looks cool and sounds great.

    I've connected my PS3, V+ Box and Pana DVD player all by HDMI.
    I followed the recommendations for the HT SF1300 in these forums for connecting a PS3.

    My only minor gripe so far is the display being on top of the sub which makes it impossible to read (i know its meant to be that way).

    If you have any specific questions I will try and answer them.

    Here are a couple of screen shots of the back, there not that clear unfortumately.

    The PS3 is connected via HDMI and set to Linear PCM as far a I can tell I am getting HD.

    The manual states it supports 'Dolby Digital, DTS, Linear PCM (2ch), Linear PCM (5.1 ch, 7.1ch).
    Unfortunately I'm new to surround sound system's, so if you need more info please ask and tell me what I need to look for and I will try and help.

    thanks for all the info and pics...

    would be really cool if you could buy an additional pair of speakers conneted wireless and get the full 7.1ch.

    speaking of wireless i cant seem to work out from the pics how you would connect the back speakers wireless, any ideas? :confused:

    On the bottom left there is a silver cover that needs to be removed then you can plug in the S-AIR transmitter.
