Summary: This goes down as one of my favourite all-time purchases. I bought this system 5 years ago and it only recently gave out on me. But while it lived, it was surprisingly good. The surround quality is terrific. We used to have a group of people over every week to watch Band of Brothers on DVD and everyone that came over was thrilled and terrified at the sound effects. Every bullet, every plane, was palpably in the room. For the money, it is more than worth it!
Summary: ...even though it's an overall decent system, you get what you paid for. -Sound quality is decent, good bass. -Love the 5-disc changer... I use it mainly for playing CD's. -USB is useful to play MP3's. Bottomline - If you can spend a few more dollars for a better system, do it. If not, this system isn't bad. UPDATE:3/3/2008 STOPPED WORKING AFTER 5 MONTHS OF USE.

Summary: This system is pretty much what I expected from reading prior reviews. It works well and does the job although it does not give "theatre sound" to a large room. Speakers work best with CDs than with the TV as the volume only goes to 50 and in a large room, that is far from booming. Overall, for the price, a great system. Love the 5 CD/DVD changer.
Summary: This product was purchased as a birthday present for my son. He is happy with it, I have not seen or heard it but if he's good with it so am I. I hope it lasts tho, this review shows only how happy I am with the product a few months into it, not a few years into it.
Summary: I bought this system for $[...] after rebate from office depot. you can not ask too much for this price. however, it does provide something beyond my expectation: it can play almost all the media format, including some odd avi and wmv codec. it plays the files stores in my USB external hard drive, which I found very useful. I stored 50GB mp3 and 400GB MTVs and now I don't need to hookup the computer. However, several cons: 1. its decoder doesn't seems to work right.
Summary: Setup was very easy. The five disc changer is great. If you have a tv room the size of a bedroom this will be a fine system for you. The only draw back is the length of the back speaker wires. They really need to be longer. Easy to fix but it would be better to have it come that way.
Summary: Arrived in a timely manner...powerful enough for a medium size room...rear surround speakers work very well...5 disc transport system very convenient to use...remote control easy to use...could use more AV inputs and outputs however, but if you're simply hooking up a cable box it should work fine...DVD unit itself works as advertised...speaker connections well color coded.
