Summary: This system produces superior clarity from both movies and music. The 5.1 surround sounded like 8.1. The adaptiq sound calibration uses a headset and the system automatically tweaks itself for better sound quality for the room's set up, and it was very useful and accurate.
Summary: This is a good, simple, one box solution for surround sound. It was bought as our vacation home AV system. Very easy installation with very good instructions. Since bluray has become the standard the V lifestyle systems are a better choice than the DVD based lifestyle systems.
