Summary: I bought this system due to the price for the features. It has a cool looking design and is good for a small area. It can be hung on the wall to make it more out-of-the-way. The bass is nice and loud but it over powers the high end. I had to turn the bass down and the highs up to on movies. As the other reviewers have said this thing has big problems with ejecting disk. A big hassle and not something i'd expect for the price Ii paid.
Summary: I bought this systm refurbished so my confidence was a bit shaky but I was very pleased in the end. When you first open the box the sat speakers feel sort of cheap, plasticie and lite, not much substance to them. The sub on the other hand is very heavy and actually a lot bigger than i anticipated. The dvd unit is small but very cool looking. Set up was simple and you could be playing it within minutes.
Summary: Paid a bit more than the other two reviews but I think this system is worth it. I use it in a small workroom. It sits on my U-shaped desk with a flat panel TV. It's like wearing headphones! But really, the system will not fill a large room. It is for a small area. The sound is great for a small system, right up to the tinkling of triangles in Star Trek I intro. Did not have any problems with the DVD mechanism. Plays music very nicely.
Summary: A whole new design concept and ease of installation makes this unit a winner! The integrated remote is very nice as I can now throw away my other remotes (with the exception of "input" on my TV remote). The controls are well laid out and easy to operate. The efficiently small speakers are well put together and blend in nicely with their surroundings. Overall, a very nice system worth the money.
