Summary: This is an all-in-one...that leaves a lot to be desired. I wanted a home theater system that was compact and had good functionality. The sound is great. Radio reception gets fair+ to good. From TV the sound is wonderful(using the optical audio connection).
Summary: I love the sound - unfortunately I have had to exchange it because it suddenly stopped working in less than a year and now I think I it has happened again and I will need to see if i can exchange once again
Summary: I bought this well known brand as the CEO of Klipsch stated the the models sold at Amazon were checked and "repaired" as there were problems with the units. Given this assurance that the problem was rectifiied I bought the CS500 model in November 2010.
Summary: Very disappointed in this purchase. I bought this home theatre system to replace an old DVD/VHS combo player that was having color and skipping issues playing DVDs. Setup this system expecting to be able to completely remove the old one and junk it, but the built-in DVD player in this Klipsch CS-500...
Summary: I recieved this system a few months ago. The overall sound is good, the deck is very sub-standard especially for a Klipsch product. I have had many problems with skipping and other problems. I have read many reviews saying the same. I am hoping that Klipsch will upgreade this deck for me.
Summary: I don't believe for one second that they have upgraded these units. Bought mine on July 7th, and (like everyone else) I love the sound, but the DVD player totally crapped out after 6 months of use. Hoping Klipsch honors its warranty as it appears to be too late to return to Amazon. Don't buy this.
If I wanted to hear jets I'd move closer to the airport

Summary: Although this system sounds fantastic there are a few problems that have cause me to give it 2 stars. 1) The remote control has decided that it only works for volume and to control which system I want to play from. I have to get up if I want to turn it off.
