Im in love with this Home Theater! I gave away my JVC Home Theater system for this and it was the best decision! I've had this system for 4 months and it still sounds great. I love all the apps it has, I love how everytime I watch a movie it still has...

This system exceeded my expectations for ease of setup and ease of moving. I love it. I had bought another system before this one, which I returned. It weighed a ton and the sound wasn't great. This one has great sound, great features and is very...

Caution in buying


Bought this to match my recently purchased Sony 32" BRAVIA. Found out that the speaker wire length would not allow me to put the speakers where I wanted to, because the wire ends are sealed on the speaker end and the opposite end has a SONY proprietory...

Speaker wire too short with no way to make longer

Unbelievable surround sound system!


I have absolutely no complaints about this system. Everything is perfect about it. It does everything equally well whether its watching a movie, listening to music from the ipod, playing a game on my xbox 360, or just watching TV. It all sounds GREAT!

Clear, powerful, room-rumbling sound

Don't buy if your room is pre-wired for speakers


All the speakers on this are hardwired (wires come out of the speaker itself) so you will have to splice and dice in order utlize any pre-wiring in your house. I always worry that there will be signal loss with splicing (and we'd have to splice twice...

Wifi, easy setup

Hardwired speakers, no HDMI in (switching between DVD and TV is a pain)
