Summary: I did plenty of research prior to buying this product. Depending on your specifications this is, in my oppinion, the best mid-range priced system available. It arrived in a 4 1/2 foot tall box and in good time from the distributor.
Summary: OK, if you are looking at this review you are probably the owner of a room that you are calling your "theater room" or the like and you are looking for a good system for around $500 or less. Well, I have good news, you just found one.

Summary: Outstanding system for a modest budget. I purchased this system for 400 and tax from Circuit City. The handling of dvd surround is superb and it brings movies to life; as is stereo music from CD. The radio receiver is also outstanding. I'm listening to my CD collection with new ears.
Summary: I hooked my computer up buy buying a 5.1 sound card that had digital optical out (Toslink/SPDIF). There are good sound cards out there that are capable for around $xx (you can spend A LOT more, but in my opinion you're only buying a name).
Summary: i was just wondering if you guys could tell me how you hooked these up to your pc and which is the best way to do it. i play a lot of games and want to take advantage of sound in games like battlefield 2
