Summary: So I got this for Christmas 2014. I have a 50 inch Samsung 720p plasma TV that is 7 years old. I really wanted to update my TV but the one that I wanted refused to come down to the price range that I had budgeted myself for. So, I began to think about how I could just take what I've got and make it better. A few years ago I had an older RCA receiver hooked up to my TV and went out an bought an really nice Polk Audio subwoofer.

Summary: I've had this system for a little over a month. I'm impressed with the sound quality and the apparent quality of construction for the price. I replaced a not very old Samsung 5.1 system that went bad and was surprised that this system sounds every bit as good as the Samsung which I bought because of the warm sound generated by the tube front end. Set up was straight forward. I did know that the speaker wire had to be cut to length but it was no big deal.
Summary: The system sounds good but I have to turn the volume up about two-thirds of the way to get average volume for a 12 x 16 room. Trying to get the Yamaha to work with other components such as an HDTV, Blu-ray player, DVR, etc proved somewhat difficult. My purchase was mainly to use for sound with my Panasonic HDTV but I have been unsuccessful in configuring the Audio Return Channel to work with the TV or for the TV and AVR to turn on/off together.
Excerpt: Fantastic system!! Every piece included is awesome. The 4 satellite speakers are solid and well-built, the subwoofer is suprisingly powerful, and the receiver/amplifier is attractive, multi-featured and very user friendly. The sound is crisp, explosive, and we couldn't be happier with our purchase!!
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls, Thundering Bass
Summary: Good home surround sound system. Some small issues during set up and up and running. Love the 5.1 speakers and using the mic surround sound calibrator couldn't be easier. I like how the remote works with my samsund bluray player.
