Pros: I have only had to opportunity to use this system with direct input (mini-jack) as im am using it on a laptop but, even with the stereo wiring the dolby digital encoding makes the difference. The desktop control box has many features, and the option to switch between inputs without having to change wires is a very nice feature.
Cons: I have to turn down the sub when i use this as an alarm clock so i dont wake up neighbors.
Overall Review: First day i had it i had a neighbor come into my room (college dorms) and say: "ohh thats you, i thought it was the train going by....my bed was shaking" lets just say i was very pleased with the performence
