Summary: This theater is very impressive for the price. Audio : 10/10 - Zero distortion at high volume, which is always a plus. Surround is great, small speakers pack a punch! Sub is acceptably powerful. At volume level 10/100 the sub vibrates the floor. At volume level 100, the house begins to crumble. Video : 9/10 - Connected via HDMI to 55" Westinghouse. Compares well to Xbox 360, very similar picture quality. iPod screen text is a bit pixelated, see my photos.
Summary: After watching the first movie with my new upconvert DVD and speaker system I must say I'm very impressed. Next some things others may want to know. The speakers attach to the DVD player, not the TV. The speakers are easy to attach, it's all color coded. Speaker cords are long enough. The ARC works great, it didn't at first. Make sure you hook your HDMI cable to the correct HDMI port, one should have ARC by it, mine is HDMI 2.
Summary: It was easy enough to set up. If your not big into sound quality then I would highly recommend it, but if your like me and like good quality sound for your movies and music then you might be a little disapointed with this system. I have to turn the volume up to the 50 plus level to get decent sound for a movie. My living room is large so I have to put the volume up high. If you have a small room that your using then it might not be so bad.
Summary: This system replaced an older, analog system that was, annoyingly, not in sync with the video. The set up was easy, the sound so much superior to the TV speakers, that I wish I had done this sooner. This being a great value for the money is icing on the cake.
