Bottom Line:   
This is the third Yahama Home Theater In A Box (HTIB) system I have had since June of 2001. The only reason why is the returns I had to make at Best Buy. Each time, the DVD player has failed and I have had to replace the entire system because each model was no longer carried. And we all know what a pain it is to disconnect the old and re-wire the new. Each time the DVD player failed. With this system, the speaker quality is poor, and after a few months, sounded tinny and crackly. The speakers can't handle the power of the amp, especially the front center channel. At times, during movies, you can't understand the spoken languages because of the poor quality. For the money, one would think you would get better quality. The sub-woofer is ok, the receiver is very good. Set-up manuals need some work. Customer service email is very good. Got to return it again. Glad I purchased the extra warranty with Best Buy or these systems would have cost me a bundle!! Definitely going with another brand.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great system when its working. It has a great 6.1 reciever and a 7 speaker set including the sub.

The only problem is the sub-woofer seems to have a defect and keeps going out. I went through 3 systems. The first system I was under the impressiong I just recieve a bad one. The second time I thought I had bad luck. The 3rd time even though I was positive I was doing everything right. Maybe some how I was doing something wrong and it had to be me. But when I went back to Best Buy for the final time to take back the system. I asked there sales people for advice and found out that the sub that was on display went out too.
