Bottom Line:   
This is the first Home Theater I've owned, so I cannot say how well it compares to others. I am very pleased with this system. I've seen many movies with this system including Monsters INC. Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down, and it sounded awesome, especially Black Hawk Down. I myself use this system with my Xbox to play with games supporting DD surround sound. Here too it sounds great with such games as Dead to Rights, Halo and Enclave. It's DVD's capabilities are pretty much the same as other dvd players I've encountered with. Overall I am extremely pleased and 5.1 surroud DTS and DD it is very immersing for both gaming amd movie viewing. With this system you can also listen to FM and AM radio stations. The only problem I've had with this system was the remote which its main buttons(FF,Rewind,Play etc.) were not working, but I soon discovered that all I had to do was press -VCR Control- off, since with this control you can control a JVC VCR and TV. It was set to VCR and not the dvd player, so I must've accidently turned on it on to VCR.

The system sounds pretty good, but I have had to return one unit because of problems with the remote control. I now am having problems with the second system's remote.
