David, Home cinema enthusiast

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great sound from tiny speakers. Generally does a good job of working with equipment from different manufacturers.
Bad points:
HDMI pass-through from a 3D Blu-ray to a 3D TV doesn't register as a 3D-compatible so will only play in 2D. This means a direct HDMI connection to the TV is needed, and this means complexity in having to change the input on the TV as well as the HT-IS100. This, as well as Sky's appalling omission of Dolby sound on its HDMI output means that I needed a fancy multi-remote control (Harmony One in my case) to avoid having to deal with multiple remotes.
