RCA's 50-watt-per-channel RT2300 is a highly flexible home theater in a box (HTiB) with plenty of inputs and outputs. With a surround receiver, five speakers, and a powered subwoofer, all you'll need is a DVD player to enjoy Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround sound.

The RT2300, which also sports an AM/FM tuner and a programmable remote control, should prove extremely easy to set up and operate, even for novices. Many HTiBs in this price range drastically limit the number of source components you can feed them, but not the RT2300. Its many audio and video connections let you plug in just about anything you'd like (with the exception of a turntable). The RT2300 even has a complete set of audio-video inputs (including S-video) right on its faceplate.

The speaker complement is pretty standard for HtiB, with four identical front and rear satellite speakers, a center channel which uses two of the same mid/bass drivers found in the satellites, and a down-firing 50-watt powered subwoofer.

The 50-watt-per-channel receiver delivers plenty of power to the main speakers, and, when combined with the subwoofer, the result is a full-bodied sound with decent, if not earth-shattering, bass. Although it doesn't go into the super deep bass regions, this powered-sub was good to around 50 Hz in our room (missing little more than the deepest tonal octave) and had a nice, punchy quality.

The RT2300's sound filled our medium-sized (300-square-foot) room well, but did show just a bit of strain on some of our more hard-hitting movie soundtracks. Be careful that your room isn't too big and that you keep the RT2300 at medium to semi-loud levels.

Overall, the RCA RT2300 has a lot to offer in an HtiB system--just make sure it fits your space and listening-level needs.

Pros:

  • Lots of inputs and outputs
  • Easy to use
  • Programmable remote

Cons:

  • Limited bass output
  • Limited volume capability

Just bought the RT 2300 RCA home theater in a box and just love it. The sound will blow you away with it's crisp, clear, Dolby digital reciever. The 50 watt powered subwoofer delivers great bottom to explosions etc. and the five speakers deliver excellent surround sound. I found 300 watts total power is more than enough for any size home theater setup with no distortion what so ever on my speakers. Being a dolby digital system, your satellite TV and DVD'S should sound fantastic with each speaker getting it's own audio source. For the money you just can't go wrong with the RCA RT 2300!

I am truly amazed with this product from RCA. I was skeptical at what I was going to get for the price....but believe me, I am very pleasantly surprised. RCA delivers on every feature that is key to a quality home theater system. The only drawback is the quality of the speakers. They are very good for 50W speakers but like they say, speakers really make the system. For anyone on a budget, this system is the way to go!

If you're looking for a home theater stereo system with Dolby Ditigal/AC3, there are none that come close in value and the RT2300 is loaded with features such as Dolby ProLogic and Dolby 3 Stereo for the true surround sound! But what makes this RCA unit an exceptional buy are the optical jacks for two AC3 devices for Dolby Digital (such as a DSS Receiver with AC3, DVD player, or AC3 LaserDisc player)for digital theater quality surround sound. The sound is outstanding, the hook up is straight forward and the control is simple. And while the reciever is rated 250 watts, the system comes with the 50 watt sub-woofer not shown in the picture (RCA rates the entire system at 300 watts with the sub-woofer) - and it sounds really great. This home theater stereo system is the most bang-for-the-buck I've seen in a while!

This home theater system is another in a long line of extremely mediocre products from RCA. I purchased a slightly older version of it before I knew anything about home theater. The sound for movies, with dolby digital from a DVD player, is satifactory. You can hear the voices, and most action is reproduced fairly well. The speakers are woefully inadequate when it comes to music. They are made out of cheap, thin wood and just decent materials.
Pros:
*Does an adequate job of movie sound when fed a Dolby Digital signal from a DVD player.
Cons:
*Terrible for music
*Cheap construction
*Only 50 Watts per channel, and that is probably a generous rating.
