Summary: This sound system has great sound especially for out of the box. My friend has a Klipsch system he paid over $1000 for and I would say this is just as good as his minus the bass is a little softer but not enough to care as the bass is big and still hits very hard. The speakers are great sounding with very sharp High's and great Mid's. I have all Samsung components and it works perfectlly with them. They all start up together and shutdown together.
