Summary: I initially bought this item for myself a year ago I was not disappointed at all. Still have it and works great. My co-worker asked me to buy one for him and he fell in love immediately. Great sound system, arrived on time and works great.
Summary: I have this system hooked up to a westinghouse 60" vr6090z LCD tv. It's connected via hdmi cable to watch standard dvds. I also have the aux 2 cable hooked up to the aux output of the tv. I also have a u verse box, a ps2,a ps3, and a sony bluray player connected to the tv and all I have to do to have great sound out of these is to set the samsung to aux 2.
Summary: For our application, we did not need to extend the wires which is good because all speakers are directly wired into the speaker. We were unable at first to get surround sound from the cable set top box to work and discovered that we needed an optical cable which was not included. That being said, the sound is perfect for the area we have and took very little time to install.
Summary: I couldn't wait to get this item. When it arrived at my home and we hooked it up the big front speaker fuse didn't work. The sound was AWFUL!!!! We took it back to our Wal-Mart and got our money back and bought a LG dvd surround system. Love it!!! It's better to spend more money on something that works right.
Summary: This Samsung HTS is loud! 1000 watts gives true power. Very easy setup with color coded speaker wiring. And enough attached wires for the rear speakers to be placed correctly in your room.. The only con is that the remote is somewhat confusing. Overall a good product at a great price.
