Summary: It's like getting a Stereo system that doubles as a theater surround sound system. Plays cd's, dvd's, built in FM tuner (20 pre-sets), and has a front usb port that plays files from a thumb drive. Great for audio books. The weakest part is the sound from the TV, but for a small room or bedroom its fine.
Excerpt: We bought one of these for our new camper. Us it for the radio in it and hocked it to a TV to better the sound of the TV. My wife liked it so well she had me buy a second unit for our home. The TV room Great sound. Great sound for low money.
Pros: Clear Sound, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
Summary: I purchased this system for our small living room. I read reviews and was kind of surprised about how well it works for us. We love the sound and we are able to listen to the radio and play CD's. Very easy to install. I am not sure how well it would work in a bigger home but it works perfect for us.
Summary: After 10 years, I had to finally replace my home theater system with a new one. You can't beat the price and where I only use it for DVD movies, I would have to say this is perfect. For those who wrote comments that were negative due to it "missing important features" you might want to look to the more expensive units. But for my needs, this new player is PERFECTION and I would recommend to anyone I know.
Excerpt: My radio in the office died. This was the best option for the price. FM works well and plays cd's. I wouldn't use it for a surround sound system for watching movie's. If you do, do not expect too much and buy extra speaker wire.
Summary: I got this item I enjoy it very much.The sound is very crisp and works great. Only 1 thing I wished was different and that is the surrounding speakers were a little longer lines . But I do have a big LR. So just having them half way still sounds great.
