Bottom Line:   
It was just dumb luck that I purchased this unit. I didn't know what Dolby Prologic was. I never liked stereo, it was underwhelming. This unit provides an excellent simulation of the recorded environment. The FM Receiver section lacks sensativety. The DVD software has an occasional glitch that causes it to hang up and requires restart. It doesn't remember where you stopped so you have to fast forward to that point. I did throw away the speakers that came with it and purchased small bookshelf three way speakers. Huge difference in the sound and special effects of Prologic playback. In TV mode some of the commercials have oustanding special effects that I enjoy listening to. CD playback is solid with no faults. Jpeg photo albums work perfectly on this unit. Highly, recommend considering Oritron.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent price/value. Includes Dolby Prologic, Stereo, 3-Stereo, Stadium, Stage, Hall, Disco, Live sound modes. In all modes, tone is crisp and clear. No muddy sound in the low end, and no hissing in the high end. I onlyhave two complaints about the unit. First is the built in AM/FM tuner doesn't pick up very well with the included antenna. The only other issue I've noticed is the speaker wires that come included in the box are too short, and too small guage. I would recommend a slightly larger speaker wire. Other than that, I would highly recommend this unit.
