Summary: Bought this system for my girlfriend's living room. Easy setup for a simple surround 5.1 home theater setup. The speakers have proprietary plugs so don't plan on using any other speakers and the dvd player on a previous unit failed after a couple of years. Overall sound is quite good for most listening applications but obviously is not the room rumbling equivalent of a true high end system or theater experience.
Summary: This product works just fine for my set up now. There is nothing special about the unit and the sub is lacking some of the lower end. But then again, for a unit that i paid $97 for, I can't complain...the sound is fine. I had a much, much larger system when i was in my house, but after moving to an apartment...it fills the room with sound nicely. No frills, simple, and functional.
Summary: First off I only paid $115 for a refurbished system. There were a few signs of wear but other than that it was great. I have in the basement so the radio doesn't pick up very well but I'm sure it would sound great. I literally had the system running and mounted on the walls in 2 hrs. I would have been faster had I planned where I was going to put the speakers. The sound is crisp and clean even at high volume (very high).
