Summary: This is a 5.1 surround sound system lacking a surround sound INPUT. No digital-optical input. So you can't get surround sound from an XBOX/Playstation into it. I consider that a pretty serious omission. The equivalent Samsung system has one.
Summary: I purchased this system to replace an earlier Sony surround system which did not play all types of dvd disc. This unit appeared to be built down to a price when unpacked, although to be fair it works well with my Sony Bravia TV. My main gripe is with the speaker wiring.
Summary: I chose this system to connect to my new Sony Bravia TV. The system looked good, the surround speakers are small as is the sub woofer. Unfortunatly I was unable to get my system to produce any sound when connected to the TV.
