The sound is crisp and the bass really sucks you into the movie.

I also love the fact that your front two speakers are towers.

This is a step up from my 420-watt Sony Receiver with a separate DVD player. I've been wanting to upgrade because I've wanted to play DVD-Audio discs. I think this is a great bang for the buck. You get 1000-watts with a 5-disc changer, ability to play DVD-Audio in 5.1 at 96khz/24-bit. I like the fact that it is an all-in-one system--less fuss and muss in the back of the player. I also like the Hand Clap setup that makes it a breeze to calibrate each speaker. I set this up very easily. If there is a downside, it's that this system is very BOOMY. I live in a rather small apartment so I've had to turn the bass nearly all the way down and the treble all the way up. And even then, there's some BOOM leftover. I had a JVC DVD player back in 2001 and they've definitely improved on their players. I also love the fact that your front two speakers are towers. Very nice. Now I have to go and revisit my whole collection of DVD-Audio and DVD-Video discs...

This system is complete and can be set-up in 15 minutes. Everything is color coordinated so if you are like my wife with AV equipment you can figure it out. The sound works well in a small to medium sized room if that is a concern. There is a lot of low end from the subwoofer. Sometimes it is a blessing and sometimes it is a burden. The easy surround or (hand clap set-up) is a no brainer for set-up. Just sit in your listener position and clap your hands once, done. The two standing front speakers are a nice edition. It is a rarity for that anymore. The omni-directional rear speakers are great for your stereo surround sound. The center channel is longer than the ones that I have used in the past so it fills up the listening area with more sound. It includes all the wires to have a basic set-up. I would recommend that you use the component connection or the s-video connection if you are able to. It has a 5 disk changer that I have used for DVD, CD, and MP3 disks. I have not messed around with DVD-R disks yet. The instructions for this are very easy. There are a few surround modes such as a movie surround, a music surround, and all stereo surround. Don't worry it defaults to the auto select. In all it was a great purchase. I found it here through the amazon marketplace shops for almost $200 less than I did at the retail stores.

If there is one movie that you watch on this system - it was to be War of the Worlds. The sound is crisp and the bass really sucks you into the movie.

Aesthetically, it's very pleasing. The towers site nicely, flanking my TV. I just have to find the time now to pull wire through my house so that I can mount the smaller satellite speakers to the back wall. I think it'll be worth the time though.

There were a couple of other similar systems that I looked at (Sony and Panasonic) and this one really had the best bang for the buck.

...it was my setup! The bass is waaaayyy intense so I had to turn it to -6 and then, wow, it sounded much better. I thought it was too boomy and generated a lot of static until I started fiddling with the settings and found the perfect selection of bass and treble. I do wish it had more inputs, like for my ipod, but an A/B box ought to take care of that. The speaker wires that come with it are long enough to run through the floor and under the house to set the rear speakers in the back of the room.

I have the unit playing right now at top volume (60) and I feel the vibration through my bones. This system replaced a Bose.
