Bottom Line:   
Good system for the money.

The speakers: Decent for a start, but you will want to replace them eventually, at least the sub, center, and fronts. So far I have replaced the centr and added a powered sub, and the system really sounds great. Of course, there are better sounding systems, but not for this money.

One probelm: With included passive sub, at higher volumes the sudden bas hits would send amp into protect mode. Replaced sub with a powered sub, and problem went away.

I chose this system becuse we were on a tight budget, and this one provided DTS decoding. I would reccomend this (or the current model like it) to anyone who wants a second system, or a decent system on a budget.

Bottom Line:   
This unit stinks; just after warranty ran out it began to hum like a champ. The hum is audible even at low volume. Didn't have bass from day one...cheap mini system from walmart has far superior sound.

Bottom Line:   
I bought it for a friend.
Pretty good price for the money. The receiver alone
costs that much. The subwoofer is reasonable. The surround
speakers are OK for movie.
Substitute with 2 inexpensive/good front main speakers
such as the Sears' Jensen JP1200 and one gets a excellent
system for $249 + $80 = $329.

Great system for the price. Easy to hook up. Great sound. Bought the system because I have always used Kenwood product and have never been disapointed.
