Summary: The receiver (<- alone makes it worth the price) and sub for this budget HTS is amazing, Anyone that hears it will think you payed much more. The speakers I'd say are average at best, but produce great sound. 600watts of power can allow great future upgrades as well. If your on a budget, and I think even if your looking at 300-400 dollar HTS you should consider this item.
Summary: This system is beyond what I had expected for what I paid. As an entry-level home theater it is absolutely outstanding. I am truely impressed with the bass from the subwoofer. Overall sound is crystal clear. You do need to spend time with the manual in order to understand and get the system set-up for your particular room layout. The only thing that disappointed me was not being able to control my Comcast DVR/Tuner box with the remote.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Interfaces Well With TV, Thundering Bass
Cons: No auxiliary AC outlet, Small diameter spkr wire
Summary: Sound is ok for the price. Blew out the rear circuit while loading a movie from my DVR. Volume was low. Seems to have reset itself after turning it off and back on about an hour later. Made in China, which I wasn't aware of.. low price, low quality..spend a bit more and get better quality unit! Found controls and directions to be confusing as well. Expertise: Moderate Problems Encountered: Blew rear speaker circuit.
