I4u.digitaltrends: With its quality Blu-ray player, useful perks and gorgeous design, the BDV-IS1000 is the sort of home theater you just want to love-and we probably would have, had the wireless surround speakers worked. It's a pity Sony didn't anticipate the problem and provide users the option of connecting via wires to the main amp. It would have been a prudent move, especially given that wireless surround systems have a reputation for dropping signals and falling prey to interference from other radio emitting devices. As is, buyers should beware that they stand a good chance of running into problems.
