5 out of 5 eggsSurprised by Sound Quality

Pros: Absolutely fantastic sound for home theater use! I was skeptical of the sub woofer based on it's size. But somehow it manages to be crisp, punchy, and room-shaking when appropriate. Wow!
Also the microphone based auto configuration let's you "program" the sweet spot to be where-ever you sit. I was skeptical about this too, but danged if it didn't work!
Also HDMI DVD up-conversion to 720/1080 is a definite plus too, but it's pretty common on newer systems.

Cons: No HDMI input, but none of it's competitors do either. It does have a componenent in. Another review gives this unit low marks for inputs, but it's got more than most HT in a box solutions, especially in this price range. Just read the description or look at the back of one at your local big box retailer (then buy it here :)
Not enough speaker wire is provided so plan on buying some.

Other Thoughts: I'm not an audiophile but I think music sounds great on the system too. It's got 3.5mm input for mp3/ipod use, and mine came with a coupon for an iPod dock upon registration but I think that may be a temporary deal.

3 out of 5 eggsSound Great - But not Acceptable

Pros: This unit sounds great and the HD ouput up-conversion of DVDs looks good. Good general quality product including the front speaker stands (not cheap feeling at all).

Cons: One digital input is a HUGE minus for this product. This unit will only accept one digital input even though it has optical and coax in. These both fall under the sattelite input setting and if the Coax is plugged in (even with that input turned off) the optical input does not work. BE WARNED!!! Treat this unit as a single input digital even though two physical inputs exist. This is why I give this only 3 eggs, and one of them is a little wrotten (2 and 1/2 eggs if you will :)

Other Thoughts: I paid less than half the amount of this unit for a Sony receiver and speakers (sans DVD) that had 3 digital inputs and all could be used. It up and died and that is why I bought this one. I didn't need a DVD player so I now wish I hadn't! Read the return policy carefully.
