I shopped everywhere for a surround sound system from pricey to cheap. After reading the reviews, I bought this system. For those of you who are "technically challenged" be aware if you have an LCD, plasma large screen, T.V. or digital cable or satellite system with a box, you will need to get adapters which are inexpensive; (4 bucks each male/female connector) to attach to your cable box or satellite receiver, and dvd. This enables you to get the surround sound while watching t.v. and playing your fave movies. You can always call "the guy" to come out for assistance (girlie-girls like me ask for directions!). Once all that is squared away, the system works great and the sound quality is fabulous. Highly recommend!
