Summary: BlueRay discs get stuck - the system just freezes. Doesn't happen when I play regular DVD's. THis system in particular - if there is an option for the system to "recall" last played location - it's not an obvious feature. So every time I have to restart the disc after it freezes, i'm watching the previews over an over. otherwise it would have done just what i needed - for size of room - speakers and sound are good enough. buy used, buyer beware.
Summary: The remote doesn't work the receiver properly very often. The power button usually won't even turn the receiver on. The remote seems to think it belongs with our Samsung TV. I called support about it and all the could come up with was some kludges. Then there is the sound quality. I've never had so much trouble getting good sound out of a system before. When I finally get it right it's acceptable but never the superior sound I expected.
Summary: Unit didn't work to the point that we returned the item. Very often, the remote would not turn the product on. When it did turn on, the menu would appear for a second and then turn off. After several tries, turning the device on and off (without the remote), the menu would come up. Once the menu came up, the sound set up was very easy. Auto calibration of the surround sound was good.
Summary: Disclaimer : I bought this product as a shelf display unit and returned it about 24 hours after I bought it. First, the Good - this is a beautiful looking device and a beautiful sounding device. The exterior has a high gloss finish and the touch controls on the top of the device give it a real "next generation" feel. The back of the device is simple and intuitive. Speaker connectors are color coded and notched so you can't mess it up. Hardware setup was pretty easy.
