Pretty Awesome


Checked around and could not find a better deal on this anywhere...Free shipping from NEWEGG, Ordered it Sunday, got it Wednesday. NEWEGG is still TOPS!

Too many Pro's to count...plays cd's, Mp3's, Dvd's. etc. USB front lets you view pics, movies and music from it. Config'd my TV to use on this remote! Many TV's supported! Very happy with the sound quality. 12x12 room is no problem, haven't cranked it...

Main unit may not be wide but it is deep. Had to cut the back out of my cabinet to close the doors. CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS IF YOU ARE CONCERNED

Perfect mate to Samsung DLP TV


Sound matches Samsung DLP TV, bass & highs good as my Bose AM-5 speakers.

Nobody told me about it sooner! Now I can use internal & external sound.
