Summary: I've gotten some serious migraines from all the hdmi issues with compatibility until i got this system to complete my gamers paradise. I started four days ago with a Sony strdg510 receiver to replace my old pioneer 5.1 from 2005.
Summary: For the price this is a great system. This item includes all necessary speakers, the amplifier, and an up-converting DVD player which up-converts to 1080i. This is the perfect entry level system for a small to medium home theater system. This package is also very generous.
Summary: I will get my complaints out of the way first and there is only one. Size of the speakers but to be honest it didnt matter for me because I placed them inside the walls. But i could see for a person that needs to mount this unit onto the walls it could be a little of a distraction.
Summary: This is my first surround sound system, and I couldn't have been more impressed with the ease of set up. The sound is nice, also. Color coded speaker wires came with the system, but I bought 12 gauge speaker wire, since the rear speakers are about 15 or 20 feet away from the receiver.
Summary: Replaced my 8 year old Onkyo receiver and mismatched JBL / Kenwood / Infinity 5.1 speakers with this bad boy. Let me tell you that I am not one bit disappointed. The setup I had before was really good and blew away most of my friends and family's systems.
Summary: This Home Theater System is definitely high quality. Sound is excellent with so many different sound processing options you are sure to find one to fit your setup. I use it with my XBOX 360 and the digital output from the Plasma TV with HD over-air, sounds amazing.
