I’m not a big fan of out of the box home theater setups, but for those without the aptitude or tolerance for audiophile banter will appreciate Sony’s newest offerings.  The Sony Bravia BDV-IT 1000 has an all in one Blu-ray player/receiver at its heart, and is backed by dueling wireless speakers, a center channel, to equally slim front speakers and a self powered sub.  It’s got a host of input and outputs and should be a snap for the laymen to setup.  Just remember, wireless speakers doesn’t mean no wires.  You still gotta plug them in or rock some reasonably sized batteries.
