Summary: Minus 2 stars for lack of an Amazon VOD app. Major fail on both ends considering the TVs are getting the app already. Seriously considering returning it for a Sony or some other. Hope this helps others not to make the mistake I did if no VOD is a big issue.
Summary: The receiver is nice,looks cool and Netflix, Pandora, Bluray, USB reader, WiFi and wireless speakers are awesome to have all in one unit and work fairly well. The plastic speakers that come in the box though, sound chesty and cheap at least for music. They might be ok for movies which is what the system was intended for but i wanted to use it for music too. So i upgraded the front speakers with a pair of Polk Audio RtiA1.
Summary: This home theater was very easy to set up. We were up and running within about 30 minutes, most of that time was spent figuring out where the speaker wires would go. A few things I didn't know before I opened the box: - Front speakers, subwoofer and center speaker are WIRED. Only the 2 rear speakers are wireless. - Remote operates off IR only. There is no adapter available for RF. So you must point the remote directly at the unit. Some good points: -Easy to set up.

Summary: In a nutshell, I looked "forever" for a component or HITB and decided whether to just get a blu ray BD player or a Home Entertainment System in a Box (HITB)...well, after reading one great review and taking a chance i bought this system from Amazon without listening or seeing it in person? I ordered, and was shipped within a few days, but I waited a week to open it since i had a few things going on at the time.
