Awesome Sound/Great Price!

Mark M., Newegg
26 November 2009
  • Summary: You will not be disappointed.
  • Pros: 2.1 logic fills the room with simulated surround. Great for a smaller room where 5 speaker placment is a problem. DVD player reads most CD formats. Four audio input connections (three optical, one RCA) will run most peripheral components. I paired this with a LG37LH30 LED HDTV also from Newegg an...
  • Cons: The A/V reciever does not recieve a video input. This is done through the DVD contorller (DVD video out) for DVD playback or through the TV for your antenna or cable signal (audio out from TV to reciever). This requires switching inputs on your TV screen menu to play between the two. Highly recom...

Great

Randolph W., Newegg
24 November 2009
  • Summary: I think the original MSRP price was around $1200.00, way over the top. The current price is easily a steal though, and I got it for even less than it is now. I put this in a good size living room, the sound is pristine. The color scheme is weird but not bothersome.
  • Pros: It's a Yamaha, easy set up, sounds great. Only 2 satellite speakers is a huge plus for me. Less is more in terms of clutter and exposed wires.
  • Cons: One of the satellite speakers came with a dab of adhesive stuck to the speaker mesh, bummer. This is my first "home theater" set up, I combined it with my 32" Panasonic also bought at Newegg. The instructions could be more specific about hookups, I had to come here to the reviews to figure out I ...

  • Summary: The system is a good buy for the price. The quality of sound is just fine, the frequency response is about the same as from my JVC LCD tv (obviously subwoofer offers more in low freq range).
  • Pros: reasonably small size, ok sound, nice looks, well packaged
  • Cons: not many sound adjustments for music listeners, can't say the remote is cool.

Unbeatable Value

Michelle F., Newegg
24 November 2009
  • Summary: Personally, I love the color scheme because it matches my 50" Samsung plasma and my white tv stand; I couldn't ask for a more complimentary color scheme. The sound on this system is astounding for the price.
  • Pros: Price, ease of setup, amazing sound, toslink inputs
  • Cons: HDMI and toslink cables would've been nice, but I had a few on hand, so no big deal.

Update

Sukh S., Newegg
23 November 2009
  • Summary: Let me know if you have questions that I can answer.
  • Pros: Ok- Now that I have owned this for over a week- I should provide more update. Here is more description of pros-I have very happy with Newegg's shipping and packaging. The system arrives in two separate box's and is easy to hook up. At first glance you may look at speakers and say, "these can't be...
  • Cons: Though the description suggests that this will will have a true 7.1 feeling? I would suggest that is an overstated claim. You will not "exactly" feel that there are speakers behind you. I don't think that a great 7.1 setup can ever be replaced with 2.1 (who knows?) but what you will get is a pure...

Excellent for music

ZHANG Q., Newegg
23 November 2009
  • Pros: Decent sound quality and easy connection. You can hardly find such a good sound quality of music at this price else where.
  • Cons: White part of the design not for everyone. If you are looking for surrounding effect, this is not the choice.

A steal at 300 bones

Daniel P., Newegg
23 November 2009
  • Summary: I almost didn't buy it be cause of the color scheme, now I am very glad I did. Given the audio quality I would probably happily paid 5 or 6 hundred. It may not be a bad idea to buy a harmony or other remote with the ability to program macros and definitely BUY an optical cable or two and an HDMI...
  • Pros: Price. Amazing sound quality considering what it is. If you set up the speakers up right (distances and height in relation to the listener) it can sound very good and does seem to produce quite convincing surround sound. I was not expecting this so it was an unexpected treat. Has a dimmer for the...
  • Cons: Color scheme. NO HDMI cable! The remote looks like a vcr remote from about 1985 and the layout is not exactly girlfriend friendly. No HDMI inputs The subwoffer/AMP is huge. All of these are things I knew before purchasing and don't even come close to warranting -1 egg.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME

Christos T., Newegg
21 November 2009
  • Summary: buy it
  • Pros: Just what i was expecting, and much much more. Great Sound, Easy Setup, Beautiful design, and OOOOMPH. This system is great, you cant beat the price. The room i put this in most definitely is bigger ( 18 ft ceiling, 20x20?something like that) than this system is designed for, and boy does it do m...
  • Cons: Had to buy optical cable to get my sound from the tv to the system since my tv only has hdmi inputs.

Very nice for the price.

Erinkate O., Newegg
21 November 2009
  • Summary: Reviews and other postings originally list this system at a significantly higher (non-sale) price when it was first released...this is an exceptional deal. So far, very happy with this purchase and with the Newegg experience. Color scheme may bother some but for my space it works nicely.
  • Pros: Fast set up. Good sound. Nice minimalist system for small space.
  • Cons: Minor con: Connection cables are only 12' long for proprietary Yamaha cable and the satellite speaker wires. I have a very small space but the cable length doesn't allow for much leeway in terms of subwoofer and speaker placement. Could have used and additional 3 to 4 feet of cable length...just ...
