Summary: The sound on this system is quite good, both for DVDs and for audio CDs. Setup was easy because of color coded cables. I replaced an AIWA Shelf system and a Sony DVD player with this all-in-one and I am quite pleased with the result.
Summary: Considering the price, I didn't expect more than a replacement for my worn-out DVD player and some extra speakers. This blew me away. The sound is great - the speakers come with long wires, btw - and the menu options are plentiful.
Summary: We owned this unit for four years, and were generally happy with sound qality much better than our tv set. However, it often needed to be unplugged and replugged in order to get it to turn on. Finally, it just stopped turning on altogether.
Summary: I am very pleasantly surprised with the quality of this unit. I primarily went for the Philips name. Had this unit been from another manufacturer, I don't think I'd have bothered. I'm pleased I gave it a try. Setup was easy.
Summary: This is a great surround sound system, and easily fills my 19' x 17' living room with sound. The only drawback is that the speaker wires are integrated right into the speakers, and into custom inserts for the unit.
Summary: Well the receiver has finally died on me after maybe 7 months. I never used the DVD player in it so dont know how good it worked. Basically had direct tv/360 plugged into it. Sound was better than the TV speakers, but still I believe there are better deals out there than any Phillips.
Summary: While hooking up this system which was extreamly easy, I didn't set my hopes to high. But when I turned it on and played the Halo 3 trailer off my Xbox 360 I was blown away by the diffrence from my old system. I heard clarity and lows and highs I never heard before it was amazing.

Summary: I've been using this Phillips Home Theater System for about a week now. I've held off on buying a new theater system for some time, looking for the right one. Saw this in a store and was immediately taken with it.
