Great bang for the buck, and self test is a huge help.

Summary: Great sound on a budget. I'm no audiophile, but this is a bargin setup. The speakers are not heavy, and will likely not give you the *best* sound you've ever heard. but for ~$325 you get a nice 5.1 setup, decent sub, and a lot of connections.
Summary: This is an awesome Home Theater System. The AV Receiver has plenty of inputs/outputs for all of my devices, I will list them all below. There are also a ton of features with this unit, to many to name off here, so I will hit on the high spots.
Summary: Perfect size for my 18x14 media room. Excellent sound quality for the price. A higher capacity front sound bar would have been nice, but overall sound quality is very good. Easy set up and customer service was awesome. Had a few questions and they walked me thru everything I needed.
Summary: Good system at the price offered.The big con was the length of speaker wire supplied.Its easy to purchase extra wiring,but I expected it to cover my relatively small living room.Quality of sound is good so far.May update once I try more instrumental music,3D etc.
Good sound but refurbishment not up to "as-new" standards

Summary: 4 star for sound 1 star for quality control When the unit was operating I was quite pleased with the sound. The bass was plenty powerful and the surround speakers did a great job. Upon on-boxing I noticed that the remote had a small nick in the plastic.
Summary: My original plan was to by a 5.1 surround sound system and buy the subwoofer separately and use my Bose speakers that I had from my old system. Also I thought that HTIB doesn't have that much power, but with this unit, I was wrong. Read many of the reviews and decided to buy this particular model.
