4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works

Cons: Sounds decent, you might want to upgrade your center speaker and buy longer cables.

5 out of 5 eggsExceeds expectation for the price point

Pros: Easy setup, nicely functional remote, wide variety of settings. The speakers are nice looking, the receiver basic display and 4 HDMI inputs. Recevier handles the BluRay, PS3, CD changer and cable box flawlessly. Powered subwoofer is responsive and easily adjusted to meet individual sound desires. Music from both mp3, CDs, Pandora and radio have rich sound. Other reviews complained about music not having highs and lows but I can't say that is one of the concerns I have.

Cons: Some volume issues with commercials on regular TV. Bass can sometimes be overpowering during movies even when set for most parts of the action.

Other Thoughts: Nice HTIB for a mid small to midsize room. My iroom is 13x24 and carpeted and sound fills the room without escaping to adjoining areas. I really like the functionality of the remote and how easy it was to get up and running.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: The sound this system produces is quite fantastic. Sounds equal or better than my friends "top of the line, hand picked" system.

Cons: as said many times before, the speaker wire could be beefed up. works just fine, but when I get around to installing and running the wire through the attic, gunna bump it up to be on the safe side.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Crisp and balanced sound, powerful subwoofer, easy setup.

Cons: I've seen this said on other reviews, but the speaker wire that comes with the system wouldn't hurt to be upgraded. I'm still using it at the moment, and it still sounds great, but stepping up to a little bit bigger gauge wire could only help.

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent system, with the HDMI in/out on the reciever, powered sub, and broad frequency range you don't miss out on a thing!
I personally think this sounds better than the Bose system my parents have at their house. The front/center/surround speakers are loud and crisp with every sound in everything in music or movies. The subwoofer has plenty of power for just about any size room in your house, the level control on mine hasnt gone past half and it still shakes the lamps behind the couch in the living room sometimes.
I would definitely recommend buying this for someone who is looking for excellent quality for not a lot of money.
