Summary: These speakers were received as a gift and worked amazing for the first 2 hours, speakers were beautiful, and the dvd player did its job, until the actual dvd player/receiver refused to work at all, lost dvd inside, was forced to unscrew the whole thing. The speakers however are worth it if you already have a receiver and are looking for a decent set of speakers or if you want to try your luck with the dvd player, otherwise go somewhere else for a full system set
Summary: this item is really glitchy and has alot of malfunctions. forexample if you use a remote that changes the channel on the television the surround sound will go crazy and will turn up really loud out of no where. its an ok starter item which is why i got it but i have had it for a year now and i am already done with it. two of the five speakers have blown and i can hear that the rest are about to blow also. my advice is to buy a little nicer one.
Summary: I picked this system up because it was a great price, but never has that old saying that "cheap things end up being more expensive in the long run" been more true. I had the same problems with the remote sending the wrong signals, and as soon as I cranked up the volume to room-filling levels, the amplifier blew out and the thing is shot. Trust me, you will be better off spending a few more bucks and getting something decent.
Summary: the player has many functions. Im still learning how to use it. at first I thought the speakers were not working, but I finally realized that the speaker works individually according to what movie is playing. for instance, I was watching a comedy show and I heard the audience sound in two speakers and the comedians voice in the central speaker. reading the instructions on how to use will benefit you. dont assume its like other dvd players because its not.
Summary: the home theater system is very nice and has many options. Has very good sound also and long wires for the speakers to be placed strategically in your room. The speakers can be a bit difficult to get set up. It looks nice and works great. Not hard to figure out.
