nice system but might not be for you if you have bluray 3d

Summary: This system is great for my needs. The sound is perfect for my apartment and I love the multiple hdmi inputs. Yes as others have stated it does have a fan that is a little noisy but when I'm watching a movie or tv show I don't even notice it. The one thing I will say to anyone considering this system (which I found out about after I bought it) is that it does not have the capability to pass through 3d audio signals.
Summary: GREAT sound for movies. The radio has the quality of a 1960's era transistor radio though. I'm not sure whether it's a near faulty set up arrangement on my part though or if it's the unit that I sometimes have a difficult time getting what I want to come on to work right the first time with the press of a button. For what I paid for this; I can't complain I guess. I suppose I got a pretty good deal.
Summary: Well, I am a pretty easy going person, and would usually never bother returning an item I purchased online. I am returning this it after one day of use. I am certain that in some applications, this system would be just fine, however, there were two issues that made my mind up for me: 1) The sound is "Muddled". Unless you have the unit in stereo mode, there are no EQ controls.
Best value to be found for a 1000w Home Theater System

Summary: This unit is great. Multiple HDMI inputs and a single HDMI output make routing high fidelity uncompressed audio and video signals to your HDTV a cinch. This system does one thing and does it great for the best value I've seen around. You have to forgive it for not being a DVD, HD-DVD, and BD player all in one because it's so affordable but still a 1000 watt system! Just get yourself separate video disc player units to go with it.
Summary: I wanted to give this unit 3 stars because I'm relatively happy with it, but the reality is that the audio cuts out often enough that you rarely go a sitting without it happening. Beyond that, if you just want to be able to have surround sound and don't want to spend $200, this works. The speakers sound really awful. People in other reviews say they're not audiophiles so they can't tell, but guaranteed, the average person would found the sound quality to be lacking.
Summary: Received this item in the mail today and everything looked very nice. I set everything up and was playing music from my computer with great sound. In fact for the price the sound was very loud and clean. The bass however, was not to bad and i liked how it came with different bass options. Only into an hour of playing music i heard a crisp popping noise from the receiver and the sound cut out and my system turned off and now no longer functions.
Great Home Theater for half the price of the others

Summary: I have had an Samsung (don't remember the model) that was functionally equivalent to this one with the exception of no smart apps built into this RCA. (Which I never used any way, being a a fan of WMC). After a year or so the Samsung started randomly switching inputs every few minutes. The Samsung was out of the 1 year warranty and a local Samsung repair shop estimated repair at approximately $ 150. I decided to try this RCA unit in spite of not being a RCA fan.
