Good for movies.... bad for aux input sources...


If you want a good surround sound system for your DVD PLAYER ONLY then this is a great product for you, however, if you intend to hook in an auxiliary device (stereo, computer, etc) know that you will only get 2 channel sound, and very, very bassy...

Awesome sound when using the dvd player, crystal clear picture from the dvd player.

No virtual surround for the auxiliary inputs.

A waste of time and money.


Apparently this product is vomited out of china with almost nonexistent quality control. Cheaply made piece of junk. Stay away from Coby products.

Won't work. No company support. Coby refuses to even answer emails

No Out of Warranty Support


My DVD-937 came installed in an RV; you know those expensive trailers that are stocked with the cheapest crap the manufacturer can find. The DVD player was always intermittent from the get-go: image would pixillate or would skip tracks, but being the...
