Summary: Pros: -2 HDMI inputs makes it easy to switch from TV to Bluray/Xbox -multiple configurations for the speaker/stand set up makes it easier to fit your home theater set up -compact subwoofer design is also the reciever (HDMI inputs/outputs, controls, are all located on the subwoofer) -BASS! lots of it for a small sub -quality sound -remote control adjusts volume, bass, power, input.
Summary: I like many others bought this item sight and sound unseen based on the mostly excellent reviews posted online.It is an attractive looking thing to be sure, glossy black finish and not at all cheap looking. Hookup was easy as could be, it has 2 HDMI version 1.4 inputs for DVD, Media Box, Game Console etc and one version 1.4 HDMI output which is meant to go to the ARC input on your TV, it also has an optical input if needed which sounds as good as HDMI for audio.
Summary: These speakers are easy to hide, great quality and the sound is just amazing. So crisp and clear the blew away my SONY speakers. I assembled these very easy and they are very strudy! If you want good quality with crips clear sound, this is it. They were smaller than someone would think however, for me, that is what I wanted so I could easily hide them behind the curtains next to my fireplace. Size didnt matter though in how loud and crisp the sound is! Highly recommend!!
Summary: The sound is better than TV speakers, but mostly due to the sub. At the refurbished price point I am happy but at full price I would have sent back. I suspect that is why there are so many available refurbished.
Summary: This works perfectly with my sharp HD TV with audio return channel (ARC). I just turn my TV on, and the volume is controlled through the same remote as my TV. Definitely adds a much better sound experience than your standard TV speakers. I wasn't looking for cinema surround sound quality, but just something to up my movie and video game sound experience. This works perfectly for what I need!
Average sound quality with below-average customer support

Summary: When we finally made the "leap" into High-Def back towards the end of 2011, I spent a lot of time researching before purchasing a television and sound system for our living room. I wound up getting a 32" Panasonic (TC-L32U3) TV because I was impressed with the picture when I was shopping around, and I liked the placement of the HDMI and other input ports.
Summary: I purchased this item for my boyfriend for Christmas, and he loves it. I read the item description and had no idea what any of it meant, but then read the reviews and noticed many people who bought the system really enjoyed it. So I took a chance. We have the Panasonic Viera ( I think that's how you spell it), and the system works perfectly with the TV. It syncs with the TV, making it very easy to use.
