5 Star looks with 3 star sound

  • 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.

  • Summary: The unit shuts down and starts up with the TV. I am using the HDMI I/O, but each time it starts up it switched back to Optical. Its a pain.

Worth it at the refurb price not worth retail

  • 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.

Just a little disappointed

  • Summary: After many years in the music biz, sitting in front of P.A. systems doing stage lighting, my hearing has suffered a bit. I don't get some hi-mid range and hi-freqs like I used to. I was hoping this system would help boost those freqs.

OK for the price

  • Summary: We have a small entertainment center and had been using an older stereo system to boost up the volume for our flat screen because it's pretty quiet like most TVs that style. We wanted some more bass, but nothing over the top. After hooking this up, the sound is OK.

Did not add any volume, so returned it.

  • Summary: Bought this for my parents, who needed an assist in hearing their Panasonic plasma TV. The TV speakers just weren't loud enough for them, even at full volume (we thought). After hooking up this 2.1 system, it wasn't louder at all.

Good sound quality but I could not use the subwoofer

  • Summary: I don't know much about sound systems and already had 5 speakers set up for surround sound using an Onkyo receiver. I expected to be able to plug everything in to the receiver and have 7.1 surround but that wasn't the case.

It's ok with 60" Panasonic Viera Plasma, but.........

  • Summary: I was hoping for a better sound than what the SC-HTB15 speakers produced. Once connected to my new 60" Pany (P60S30) using the ARC HDMI connection it sounds as lifeless as the oem tv speakers.

Would not work with my flat screen.

  • Summary: Be careful if you order this item, make sure that your TV has a PORT labeled HDMI (ARC) (Audio Return Channel) or a HDMI IN port plus a OPTICAL OUT port is your only second option. You will need a high speed HDMI cable and and a Optical cable (if you do not have the HDMI ARC port).

Was hoping it would replace my slapped-together speaker/receiver Setup... no such luck.

  • Summary: Just received my order for this product today. To put some context to my review and why I gave it 3 stars, let me preface by saying that I purchased the HTB15 to replace a recently purchased receiver/speaker setup of a Yamaha receiver, 2 x Polk RTi4 bookshelf speakers, and 1 Polk center channel...
