Not expensive, but you get what you pay for.


I have tried calling customer service (no help), and every conceivable method of getting the player to not stall, but it does every time. Right as the stars come in to ring the mountain top at the opening of the Paramount display. Very frustrating. For...

Sound quality, price and ease of set-up are all nice

Won't play any DVD's from Paramount

very good for the price


If you are looking for a good home theater system that wont break the bank this is certainly one to consider. I have had this product for 2 years now and have loved it.

easy set up ; good sound ; fair price

no optical sound ; wires connecting speakers to main unit are a little short ; fingerprint magnet

Would Recommend it for anybody who loves BASS and Big Sounds and all these for just a lil price and Amazing Output Power.

This is an Excellent HTS with the most user friendly features. Fast, Sharp and Clear with Flawless Design and Precision

The system sound gets clumsy only sometimes while playing and switching the sound modes or for that matter anything switched. This happens only sometimes and does not matter to me as I just have to turn it off and back on. Prob solved

This system is amazing for the price...


bottom line is this is an excellent its not a bose, but you'll save yourself at least $800.00. Good sound quality multiple features. Can't go wrong with this system..Just wish you could adjust the speaker volume individually..I believe the...

I have a small living room 12' x 18' and don't have to turn it up past half the volume ; Excellent system. very loud, shakes my walls. FM radio..I pod..dvd upconvert..hdmi output. what more can you expect from a system that's under 200.00

only a couple of things i don't particullarly care for ; wires could be longer, and for some reason you can't adjust the speaker volume individually.. other than that couldn't expect more

Great Value


Philips products are a brand name you can trust.

Sound quality from the speakers is awesome for the price. Love the way it looks..sleek and black ; Easy to hook up and the speakes are small enough to hide if you like. If you want bang for your buck this system is for you

None so far

Pretty good


It serves it purpose for me. I've never had a nice system like Bose or anything so I have nothing to compare it to. I've got it hooked up to my computer and have no complaints with the exception of the dock.

The system sounds great. I've got it hooked up in my bedroom and I'm pretty satisfied with it

I'm not a fan of the iPod dock. I mean yeah it works and you can control the ipod with the remote but I guess I expected some visual. The dock is only audio connectivity. If you're not right in front of the iPod, you won't be able to read the artist or...

Great Velue


Sound quality from the 6 speakers is about 85% as good as my former $1,000 Bose system so for under $200 this is a no-brainer. Have read a few reports of DOA or erratic behavior units but mine has been trouble-free for over a year & years of experience...

Great sound & DVD playback in a sleek package. External stand works well with iPhones as well as iPods

One button controls/selects multiple input sources which sometimes forces you to go through 4 or 5 other sources until you reach the one you want to use
