Budget home theater system with Blu-ray

 

Good sound for the price, great value, excellent video quality, netflix and BD-Live

Lack of features, minimal connectivity options, defaults to Blu-ray source when turned on

I love it

 

Incredible sound, I haven't seen a movie theater since I bought this home theater system. Definitely a recommendation for everyone looking for a good system at a reasonable price!
