I had just purchased the Samsung HL-S4666W 46" DLP HDTV and I felt I needed a surround sound system to go with it. However, I didn' have thousands to spend, and I needed to get a progressive scan DVD player too. This system answered all my problems at once.

The set-up took about 1-2 hours (mostly just putting the speaker stands together, which are made of metal not cheap plastic). It was probably just as long to actually figure out how everything works. The manual has everything in it; however, it isn't in any logical order.

PROS:
-over 1000W of power
-"wireless" rear speakers w/separate amp (If you step in the way the connection is broken, but it goes back on within a second of walking out of the way)
-HDMI output & optical audio input (plus component, RCA, etc, etc)
-Auto-Calibration mic (I thought it worked pretty accurately, it tells you the distances that it thinks the speakers are from the mic, and they were dead-on in my case)

CONS:
-DVD turntable EXTREMELY slow (I was aware of this before I bought it, and I think most people can deal with it)
-DVD insertion is sort of sketchy (It doesn't tell you when to push the DVD into the slot, you just have to hold it there and hope it sucks it in. I find the easiest way is to "eject" the empty slot and then push the disc in right after the word "eject" comes off the lcd, I've looked all over the manual and haven't found a clear explanation of what I'm doing wrong)
-DVD FF/RW only has 2 speeds (really stupid)

Overall I love this system. I hooked up my PS2 with RCA audio to the receiver and started playing "Guitar Hero", and the sound was great. I've also thoroughly enjoyed watching concerts I have on DVD (Audioslave, Offspring, The Police, Depeche Mode, etc.).

I recently purchased this system for my living room. It performs really well for my needs. Surround sound is great and DVDs look awesome on a Sony XBR970 tv. Two things I don't like. 1.) Auto calibration mic was pretty inaccurate determining speaker setup and 2.) cheesy speaker cable out of the box.

That being said, the thing sounds good, looks good, and I had it set up in about 1 1/2 hours. For the money? Very, very nice.

I hate the fact that since I live in a Town Home, my neighbors bang onto the wall sometimes when I am listening to the music or watching a movie at a "loud" volume when it is only 07:30 pm, party poopers!

Oh, about the system...
I bought it about two months ago. I was undecided between the Onkyo 5.1-Channel-HTS894 (which runs about the same price) or this one. I do not regret about my choice as I love the fact that the rear speakers are wireless to the receiver; I do not have to deal with more wiring other than the front speakers and the sub-woofer.

Great DVD quality when combined with the Sony 50" SXRD-HDMI cable connected. Now I actually have the feeling that I am at the Movie Theatre (only that I can pause the movie whenever I feel like going to get me a refreshmet).

CONS- I do have to agree with other reviewers that the DVD/CD reading is way too slow when changing from disc to disc. The sound is very good, not crisp clear yet, but I am satisfied. I still give it a five stars rating.

PRICE- Excellent system for the price! Very disapointed with Best Buy, as they have this same system but, you can only get it as a "special order", which means that you have to pay $799.00 for the product, plus $250.00 for S&H. Yeah right! Amazon was there to the rescue! Only paid $649.00, plus S&H was free!

By the way, did I mention the fact that if you blast the volume and do not live in a single home, it could be a very good way to meet your neighbors? (ha,ha).

I'm very pleased with the Dream System I purchased. At first, I was somewhat disappointed because I thought the rear speakers were wireless. Well, they are, but you must run a wire between the rear channels. I drilled a couple of holes and ran the wiring through my basement ceiling. It worked out great! I am so impressed with the sound and picture quality. You should use the HDMI hook up if your TV has that capability.

If you need a system that requires a wireless set-up, this is it... if you don't, keep looking. Otherwise, you're paying for electronics you don't need. The infrared transmitter has worked perfectly so far, but keep in mind you need a place to mount it/place it, and a direct path to the rear speakers.

I've been happy with the sound of the system, but the external connectivity has been disappointing... you are limited to a combination of only 2 sources, so if you have more, keep looking. All the input types you would ever need are available, but there just aren't enough of them.

I've been using an external Sony dvd player instead of the imbedded model for dvds, but the player works well for audio cd's. And the MP3 connection on the front panel has been nice to have.

As far as looks, this unit is different from standard A/V equipment I've been used to? It's wide and deep, but slim in height... the display on the front is small, but usable. Make sure you have the space to use it.

The tower speaker set-up is both a benefit and a hindrance... it's nice in the rear, where it places the sound above existing furniture, but limiting in the front speakers, so allow space for the pedestals. You will have 2 height choices... a nice addition.

Set-up was easy, and when I had questions, Sony tech support was accommodating... fortunately, I have an entire Sony configuration now. That helped.
