Excerpt: These sounded great for about a week, and then the receiver quit, as though it couldn't keep its inputs straight. First sound wouldn't route through it, and then picture from the blu ray player wouldn't appear. Furthermore, it does not come with stands for the rear speakers, so you're forced to come up with your own solution. Mine still stand behind the couch: a couple wooden dowels in baseplates with screws in them to hold the speakers. Worthless system.
Pros: Clear Sound
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Poor Interface, Stopped Working
Summary: It is hard to update. I get an error on the display everytime I turn it on but I can still use it. The biggest issue is the infared receiver is the same as my panasonic tv so when I change something on the tv it changes the receiver source and vice versa. The manual and instructions are horrible. The sound is okay. Stay away.
Summary: One of the HDMI inputs failed in less than a weak. Now, I only have 3 working inputs. Customer service wants me to pay for shipping, and it takes two weeks to "investigate and fix the problem". Oh well, it's cheap for a reason....
Summary: I am planning on returning this product even though i'll probably get dinged with the return shipping cost. Won't connect to my television through hdmi. The manual is full of jargon and is of little use to me. I called tech support but got a "the next representative will be with you in 62 minutes" automated voice. Hung up after 10 and tried to research some more to little avail.
Summary: I'm so disappointed with my experience. It appears that your experience with this system will be good (4-5 stars) or really bad. Mine is really bad. Setup was easy and straightforward. After turning on the system, I couldn't get any sound through HDMI or optical. After approximately 5 minutes... click! I had sound! It was really clear and better than my 8 year old system it's replacing. However, after only 15 minutes, the sound stopped... then the remote quit working...
Summary: Got this as my first home theater system. It seemed good initially. After about a week, while the music was playing, the sound stopped completely. I did a power off, RESET, etc. No sound is coming. Called their service center, they say it needs to be repaired. They asked me to do a RESET as well which didn't fix the problem. I had noticed while increasing the volume, after volume level of 58 or so, sound would just stop. I thought it was some sort cut off.
