The setup is easy.
Dwight F. Elliott
The hdmi passthrough works fine, both my DVD and hd cable box have optical audio, so I was able to use the optical audio instead of regular RCA jacked cables.

Great sound, great quality, great value.

This is a terrific value on an entry-level HDMI-based home theater system.

A small but telling detail: I appreciate how every knob on the front of the unit is a different shape and size, and is spaced just far enough apart so you quickly learn its role. Yes, I use a remote for the most part, but it's still good design. The knobs feel right, too.

Because this HTS is pass-through, expect to buy several optical digital or coax cables for your audio (the system inputs support two digital inputs and one optical input, along with a slew of other inputs). That said, buy those cables on Amazon through one of the better third-party vendors and you'll be fine, and I won't tell if you use cheap RCA cables scrounged from your old stereo until the new stuff arrives. Also toss the 22-gauge (or whatever it is) speaker wire and buy 16-gauge from Amazon or Radio Shack (don't bother with Monster unless you feel the need to waste money).

I thought the system was fine but not remarkable (sturdy, nice-looking, squarish but not overly huge) until I got digital coax cables for the audio with my new upconverting Sony HDMI DVD player and got a digital optical cable connected with my older Yamaha CD player (CDC-575). On the latter, because I had initially connected with RCA, I had to fiddle with the HTS settings, and was sitting inches from the front speakers with the volume cranked up when I found the magic toggle that set input to digital. The resulting sound blew me away bottom over teakettle, but when I recovered, I could not believe how clear and rich the sound was. The same is true of the coax audio from the DVD player, which had us thoroughly enjoying "Little Miss Sunshine" as if we were in a theater.

Excellent product. It even comes with a calibration microphone that tests and calibrates all the speakers and lets you know if any of them is misplaced/out of range for optimum performance.

I read the other buyer's review about the remote. Mine does not appear to be defective, although at first I did have trouble using it properly; they have somewhat of a strange design for the COntrol Button with up and down arrows that won't work unless you hit them at exactly the right place. Overall the sound is excellent, everything seems in proper working form, and Amazon gave me free shipping (almost one hundred dollars in extra savings considerng the weight of the box these things come in). I had previously purchased a comparable RCA, that I gave a good review to, but this unit is by far better, both in features and in performance.

I just received this last week. From the reviews, I gathered enough information to make the purchase. Everyone was saying it's the best bargain for the price. It IS.

I hooked it up today and was ASTOUNDED at how nice it sounds. This thing compares to my father's Bose setup. The only difference is how high you can turn it up. For mid-sized rooms, this system goes PLENTY loud enough to fill your insatiable appetite for sound. The system has plenty of inputs and outputs, including 2 fiber optic inputs, component inputs, many RCA inputs, and even HDMI pass-through.

One thing that needs to be mentioned: this system doesn't actually decode or process HDMI audio, it only through-puts the audio and video signal. It's great for cutting down cable use (use HDMI for video and audio instead of clunky component tri-cables and RCA audio). You can find HDMI cables on the CHEAP if you look around. Then just use digital coaxial or fiber optic for sound.

*EDIT* To clear up some confusion. HDMI Pass-through means all this system does is "pass-through" the signal to your TV. It DOES pass-through the audio and video signal BOTH; however, the receiver doesn't interpret it. The sound will not play through the receiver (via 5.1 setup) but the audio WILL play through your TV. Simply passes the cable through the receiver into the TV. Why is it even on the receiver if it doesn't provide audio support, you ask? It provides two inputs and one output. Cuts down on cables. You can switch between the two.

The bass is superb. It's not "rattle your guts and make you think something is wrong" loud, similar to competition subwoofers or Bose systems, but it's AMPLE for a mid-sized room.

I can't recommend this system enough.

Although I'm no audiophile, this system sounds great. The auto-setup function made calibrating the speakers a five-minute breeze. Even though the manual is quite thick and laid out in a hard-to-read and confusing manner, setting up the inputs to all of my devices only took about half-an-hour (that is NOT counting the two hours I spent trying to decipher the manual. You could probably figure out how to set up the inputs by just skipping to the manual sections that cover them).

The reason why this only gets four stars is because, apparently, "HDMI Passthrough" means that the sound signal isn't leeched from the HDMI cable before it gets passed on to your TV. This means that for each HDMI cable you run from your sound source to your receiver, you must also run either an optical audio cable or a digital audio cable from that source to the receiver. And since there are two HDMI inputs, both optical audio inputs will be taken up with their accompanying sound signals. There is also one digital audio input. In total, you can only have three 5.1 surround sound signals connected at once. It should be noted that this receiver cannot convert digital video to audio and vice-versa (so if you have video coming into the receiver via a component video input and one HDMI cable going from the receiver to your television, then that video will NOT be passed to your TV through the HDMI cable).

My inputs consist of three devices:

1) A Sony DVPNC85H/B 5-Disc DVD player (which is a perfect complement to this receiver since it outputs its upconverted signal over HDMI and the receiver remote works for this device, too) is connected via HDMI and its included digital audio cable.

2) A Motorola HD DVR cable box (from Comcast) connected via HDMI and an optical audio cable.
