Description:

* "Top-loading CD player with motorized, illuminated door"<-- That is a total lie; there is no Disk input anywhere. This is an amp system only. This model being an amp is actually a better deal, though, then would be one with disc input.

* 30-preset FM/AM digital tuner, 8 watts per channel<-- that is true and kewl, you can listen to the radio in 5.1, even if the signal is only 2-way.

* Magnetically shielded speakers for placement near computer monitors or televisions<-- another big lie. I tried it. Not recommanded for PC use. NOT shielded AND the suv-woofer is too big to put at your feet, 'takes up too much space for the office. But if you really want to, you can find a way to really distance your speakers from your PC and monitor, it could work, but it would not be cool.

* Optical digital-audio output, stereo analog-audio input<-- Lie, again, but the reality is acutally better. It has the Coaxial input AND the Optical input, which are the 2 best connections available on the market for non-professionnal equipment. That is somewhat rare. There are S-video and RCA video inputs to relay the amplification of signal from, say, a video game console to your TV, if you use those.
* Full-function remote control <-- True, and is btw the 2nd coolest remote I'ce seen in my life. It can learn the signals of any other remote juste by aiming it at the Sharp remote. The Sharp remote works on either batteries or AC-plug. With batteries, you could walk around your neigbourhood and change the channels of up to 24 TVs because of the Sharp's 24+ programmable buttons.

* The satellite speakers don't come with stands yet do come with a good length of cable. Set-up is easy and colour-coded.
