A Purchase I Feel Good About

 

I didn't know much about surround sound systems when I started researching this purchase, but after a fair bit of web surfing (including reading other reviews on epinions.com), I feel like I made the right choice. If you already have the other ...

Great sound and volume dynamics and not that hard to set up

Be ready to buy a lot of extra cables and wires

Great unit for the money, but it's not without flaws.

I did end up returning this unit, but I think it's still an excellent value. It was on sale for $399 on Best Buy at the time and I'd read several good review about it, so I went ahead and bought, brought it home and set it up.

Great system, unparalleled value

 

I'll leave all the details about system components and set-up to the other reviewers who have covered them well and will focus on the quality of this system.

Outstanding sound quality and functionality

Remote is too big and can't be set-up for my samsung dvd player

Consumer review by:

Good system if you learn all of the features

 

I have had this system for about three months now and I have tried just about everything I can with it. Overall, it is a very nice system, especially for someone who wants very high quality sound in all aspects(DVD, TV, CD, Radio, etc...).

Good sound quality(good range, too), plenty of features for average user

Complicated remote, poor quality factory wires

This is my first Home Theater system. I was looking for something reasonably priced and wanted some decent front speakers for playing music. This system satisfied both of these requirements.

Product Specifications

The HTB-505 delivers the big, engulfing audio that drives home theater. A powerful receiver (100 Watts x 5 channels) is the system's centerpiece, providing Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding for highly defined surround sound, and it's perfect for your music as well. An 8" subwoofer with a built-in 100-Watt amplifier provides the explosive bass sounds that add depth and drama to movies. The Magnetically Shielded left, center, and right speakers feature dual woofers for extra definition, and two matching surround speakers complete the speaker system. S-Video inputs and outputs are provided on the receiver, and a universal pre-programmed remote with joystick control is included.
