Earth Shaker

Cory Pfenning, Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: I had to order the next step up in receiver and speakers since the shipper damaged mine. Customer service was lacking beyond belief. I had to contact them to find out where my items were only to find out they didn't have anymore. I upgraded and am very pleased with the system. Plenty of power and sounds great!. I would not buy from this seller again since their customer service sucks. 5+ starts for the system 0+ starts for the seller.

  • Summary: Incredibly affordable surround sound system for a small space. I have a small apartment in NYC, and this is perfect for my living room.

A Best Buy

JiminMichigan, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: I have been using this system for over a year, and I remain very pleased. The sound quality is NOT audiophile excellent, but consider the price. I needed decent sound without spending thousands of dollars, and this system was by far the best "bang-for-the-buck" set up I could find. Nothing else even came close. I have had a lot of experience with sound systems, and I think this unit is really amazing. I was able to adjust it so it sounds fine used with my TV.

Great system

Carl Gomberg, Amazon

  • Summary: I've got this system set up in my basement home theater and it delivers on the sound and bass. I haven't had a chance to play with all the features, but I'm very pleased so far. The only complaint would be from my wife, who says she can hear the bass two floors up in our bedroom.

Great sound for the price

C. L. Ludwick, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: I was actually very surprised at the quality of the sound this system produces. Whether you're watching stereo television, DD 5.1, or an mp3 file it really surpasses expectations. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a low cost solution. The hookup is easy and having four HDMI ports makes thing simple. One thing, though, the remote on and off is difficult for many remotes to handle. Even with my Harmony One it is sometimes a challenge to get it to work right.

Best system for the money.

wifi_expert, Ebay
2 July 2011
  • Summary: Overall the whole system is great, the reason why I give it 4 out of 5 is due to speakers being very hard to connect to the wall/celing mounts, other wise this system is awesome. Very loud and crisp sound plus the Sub is amazing.

Good Speaker System

Brian, Amazon
9 May 2011
  • Summary: I use this system for surround sound in my room for video games, music, and movies. It works perfectly and was very easy to set up. Not the highest quality in the world, but you get what you pay for. Definitely worth a purchase.

Consumer reports was right

Dennis of Derby, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: This home theater is very satisfying and enhances our 50 inch plasma TV at an affordable price. There is an area for Yamaha to improve; the instruction manual is too confusing and disjointed for a non-technical person.

Yamaha YHT-493 BL 5.1

Bjarne, Amazon
10 April 2011
  • Summary: Great unit. I use it in a 400 sq.ft HT and it is fine for that size room. I wish it would convert all input to the HDMI output but guess that is a not done in this price level. But I am amazed that those small speakers can output that great sound. Should have had back light on the remote.

Booming Bass, Impressive sound to say the least

Steve, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: Got this as an open box for only 269.99. Overall the sound is impressive, bass is so powerful I can't max out the sub-woofer. Receiver has a variety of options. I'm certainly not an audiophile but I do look for quality sound. I originally purchased a Samsung 5.1 system but the bass was too close to nonexistent. On this everything is extremely impressive and at 329.99 new I certainly believe it exceeds its price.
