Outdated, but can work if you tinker with it.

This is an unit that has been around since 2011, so let me tell what you need to know.
1- No HDMI
2- The sub woofer gets insanely hot in just a few minutes since it has no fan. (you gotta fix that yourself)
3- i had to open it to fix #2.
4- unless whatever you are using is pushing 5.1 then you are not going to get true 5.1 , only a simulated 3D surround, but it's not bad, and it's loud.
5- If you have optical use that, if you don't have that see if you have an orange hookup on your tv, that's a sub-woofer cable, use that, and it should work. (that's what worked for me)
6 - RCA cables most likely won't work (didn't work for me so don't waste money)
7- lastly the audio is great for a not so big room. If you have an EQ use it, it'll help it.
I'm giving this TWO stars because of the sub woofer. That heat is real, and you need to do something about it otherwide the heat will kill this thing in no time.
(honestly for the price they want for this, buy something different)
