Excerpt: I was disappointed with my choice of purchasing a 300W unit. The overall sound level isn't good for a medium to large room and there weren't enough input / output ports for my needs. I returned the unit for a 1000W system and am very pleased with it. There was nothing wrong with the unit for a small room. Great price and fast shipping from B&H.
Summary: This system is best used in a small room, the reason I say this is because the bass is a little on the low side. The real issue is that I ordered this new and I got a refurbished model with scratching and poor packaging. Thankfully I had bought a Squaretrade 3 year warranty, so I will be covered.
Excerpt: I added this product to a television in my workout room. The DVD sound was great but when using the audio output from my television I can't hear over the excersize equipment. The television speakers are louder than the receiver. I connected an older Phillips receiver system and it works much better. This product may be good for a small bedroom but terrible for anything that requires louder volume. All the other home systems I own outperform this my a mile.
Summary: All I can say it not the loudest system . Made for small rooms an apartments Id say. I own one and have it in the garage I turned to a TV room yea I have to have max 40 all the time just to get a descent sound
Summary: I had read previous reviews and noticed a lot of people complaining about the low volume, etc. They are right. This system is not designed to be a main large livingroom system... This system is designed to be strictly for bedrooms, dens, and small living spaces. We pur. yesterday when our 1000W system died, we were not ready to spend big money on a comparable system which would have meant spending at least $300-500.00.
Summary: I just dont get it, WHY are you not able to just hook it to your tv, and play your video game console via surround as well. Instead i have to get a RCA cable, and even if i do get it working it wont be at peak performance? I bought this in Wal-Mart today after reading great reviews on it, it sounded perfect for me. Until i read about that, DEAL BREAKER, i will be returning it shortly.
