I bought this unit about a week ago at Walmart for a low price considering the sound it gives out. You will be hard pressed to find a unit that has the HDMI out to your tv and three HDMI inputs on the back. It is a great surround sound Dolby Digital unit for the price. I have a Sony in another room that doesn't even come close to putting out the sound that this unit does. I would definitely buy this if you can still find it on sale. BTW it also has dsp sound modes on it if you are into those. I'm not but once in awhile I will listen on Hall, or Stadium just for a different kind of sound.

I won't overwhelm you with a lot of unnecessary details. In short, the unit has problems! The sound is great WHEN it is working correctly! I've seen other complaints that the audio will suddenly drop out and you will have to turn the unit off and then back on again to get the sound working. I have experienced this problem. I thought it was just a glitch, but based on other reviews, it is an issue with the unit. It has only happened to me once so far, but I have only had the REPLACEMENT unit for two weeks, so we will see.

The first unit, which I exchanged, was having problems transmitting the picture from my Roku box to the television. The picture suddenly starting cutting out and the screen started flashing green. No matter what I tried, I could not get it to stop. I thought it was the cable, so I switched it, but it still continued. Ironically, when I plugged my Xbox 360 into the same input that the Roku was plugged into, the Xbox played just fine. So I thought it may have been the Roku, however, when the unit stopped allowing the Xbox to play in 5.1 surround, and would ONLY play in Dolby Digital or Stereo and wouldn't even allow me to choose any other options, I took the unit back and exchanged it. With the new unit the Roku plays just fine, however, the Xbox 360 is still unable to broadcast in 5.1 surround. I've checked the settings on the Xbox to make sure that the audio was set to 5.1, but I am still unable to get surround sound out of it! I do know that it was working with the 1st unit, when I first purchased it, however, now, it's as if it doesn't recognize that the Xbox is sending out a 5.1 surround signal.

I've had it for almost a year and use it for gaming and movies (on the XBOX360 and now the XBOX One). The sound is great and there are a lot of sound options to get it tuned just how you want it. I also like how if you forget to turn it off, it automatically turns off after a while of not being used. Highly recommend it!

I purchased this Home Theater System, first one ever, to go with my new flat panel TV, also first one ever, so I don't know much other than this unit is extremely easy to set up and sounds great. I may not be a techie but I know what sounds good, and this system sounds great! When cranked up-no distortion like others I've heard. My only problem is that my house is small so when I do crank it up things (my stuff) kind of vibrate. Like others say, the wires could be longer especially on the subwoofer, but no big deal.

Very bad system. Had to return first one we bought due to continually shutting down the sound. Second one makes loud noises sounding like an airplane taking off, and AGAIN the sound turns off causing you to have to turn of sound system and turn back on to get sound. I will be sending it out for repair and hope it gets fixed. Worse product out there. Don't buy it, save your money!!!

This system was 199 and was extremely over priced and of pour quality. The sound in the HDMI randomly cut out had to shut system off to get it back on. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT. Spend the extra get an onkyo

Originally gave it 5 stars but had to change to 1 star and it doesn't deserve that. Update 4/6/2015: Thought it was the best and sure enough it started doing all the stuff in the other reviews and then the sub quit working last night. Before the sub quit the whole unit started shutting off during playback and at that point I knew I knew we had a problem. Small speakers still work but with no sub and the other stuff it does, it's junk. It also started having a delay like another post mentioned and man is that annoying. The sound doesn't match the lips of the person on the screen talking or singing. The auto turn off option started getting shorter and shorter so when looking for a song to play it's shuts off. It also doesn't remember any of the setting as another person mentioned so when it turns off you have to reset everything, total junk. I am so disappointed and doubt if they will refund my money. First I had 2 Logitech surround sound systems quit and only a couple days old and I spent allot of $ on them and no refunds, now this. The components they use in these cheap systems are really something to see if you ever take one apart. I have learned to now read reviews before buying anything. Listen to me and don't buy this unit. OH, the person that mentioned if a person on TV stops talking for a few seconds then starts talking again the amp won't start playing the sound for a few seconds so you miss the first part of what they are saying and this also holds true for music playback. There is a bad delay and when hooked up to my PC I can't hear the windows start up theme the delay is that bad. I have had it with these cheap systems and will now build my own system. I actually have a pile of speakers and amps now that don't work and all basically new.Read more ›
