Good value but lacks HDMI input
on April 12, 2012
This is one of the least expensive "home theaters" and has decent sound. The blu-ray player produces good quality videos, although it seems slow to ingest discs. Its major limitation is that it lacks a HDMI input, so watching television requires switching the TV set's input from the home theater to the set-top box, and switching the home theater's input from its player to the audio output of the set-top box. Worse yet,the theater's digital input is incompatible with the set-top box's output (optical vs. coaxial) so one must use the stereo pair output from the set-top box, losing Dolby surround on those cable broadcasts that have it.
