What You Need To Know

  • The front and center speakers are a little over a foot long.
  • The other four satellites are just under that size.
  • The subwoofer is about a foot and a half tall.
  • Overall, it has a big, blocky feel to it with no removable grills.
  • This system comes with a full blown receiver that as all the connections you need.
  • It has 4 HDMIs that are 3D ready, 2 digital audio video inputs, 2 component video ins, and 4 composite video inputs.
  • It'll pass video and audio through HDMI.
  • All these inputs and outputs should be overkill for most people.
  • They also have an onscreen menu to change settings, which isn't something all receivers have.
  • It's a huge help because the menus are so complicated.
  • We did have to consult the owner's manual a couple of times to figure out how to configure our speakers and sound.
  • There is no auto-calibration option.
  • The system sounds good: lows and mids sound great but we felt like there wasn't enough treble represented.
  • Since this is a 7.1 system, you're enveloped in sound and we would have liked to hear more discreet sounds coming from each speaker.
  • It does get incredibly loud without overloading.
  • Overall, we were pleased.


  • $400


  • 4 Seals of Approval out of 5. (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • The amount of system of you get for the money is great. There's even an iPod dock!
