Summary: It works pretty good. I have had a few quirky things happen with the audio skipping for a second or so every 30 minutes when using HDMI input 1. Also the volume sometimes goes out of control. This happens less frequently after having done 3 or 4 firmware updates. Connected to my home wireless network easily. The remote layout is awful - seems upside down. Gotta turn on the light to find the right buttons even after owning this for over a year.
Summary: Don't expect the sound quality to blow you away. I had a problem with one of the rear speakers not working. The speaker itself worked if I plugged it into another slot but when doing the sound/speaker check, nothing.
Summary: The playback hardware works great. I'm just not impressed with the speakers. To me they sound tinny, and although the sub can compensate somewhat for that, it's not enough. My Vizio TV's built in speakers sound better to me than these.
Summary: This is a nice system, the sound is great and blu ray picture quality is excellent...BUT...it is NOT wireless! I bought this thinking that I could place my speakers wherever I wanted-NOT SO. The rear speakers are wired into a box that has to be plugged into an electric outlet (they don't have to be wired into the main unit-hence they are calling them "wireless") and the front speakers are wired into the main unit. FALSE ADVERTISING!!
Not as good as the previous model but still excellent sound quality

Summary: This stereo sounds AWESOME and adds Blu-Ray to the old model. But it has some quirks that make it really annoying. I would probably still buy it again just because the sound is great. I use it to watch movies/sports with my Projector and also for music/iphone. It seems to handle the clarity of voice for movies and also the loud music of EBM/techno/dance/rock equally as well. There doesn't appear to be any quick-access buttons to change the input.
Summary: I've had this system for about 8 months. I purchased the system because I wanted a way to connect 4 devices (XBox, Blueray, surround system, and Cable box)to my TV via one HDMI cable and I wanted to do this without buying a huge AV receiver. For the price this system does exactly that. The good... - Sleek front cover - The set up is easy - Wireless rear speakers - Sound is decent once you fix all the setting - Wifi and LAN port - 2 HDMI inputs one output The bad...
