Summary: Great sounds it's not the right remote. If I had the correct remote, then I would give you a higher rating. Without the correct remote, it is difficult to balance the sound between the front and rear. Please send the "CORRECT" remote.
Summary: I bought this unit because it was highly rated, had a reasonable cost, and was suppose to be easy to install. I did not rate the quality with stars because I have no basis for comparison. But it is way better than the Flat screen sound. And the surround sound is fantastic.
Summary: Purchased this on 4/5/11. The LED volume display lights stopped working after a few days as noted in many other reviews. Unit sounds fantastic and was easy to set-up. Blows away the Sony 5.1 system i replaced with this. Happy but still pi..ed that the lights stopped working.
Summary: It took me several hours to figure out that the back speaker wires (and associated plug) are not attached to the plastic casing that covers the connection port on the speaker. The wire is loose through a hole in that plastic cover/housing.
Summary: So I was in the market for a boost in the family room TV's sound, have done the home theater thing, wife does not enjoy floor standing speakers, wires, etc. So, I researched sound bars. 3-4 models show up all over the web that are highly rated (not the big money stuff).
