Bottom Line:   
I got this system only a few years ago, and it's now retired after only mild use. It is the crappiest stereo ever created, in my opinion.

Problems (in order of occurance):

1. The system has terrible background noise. There's a constant "fffffffffffff" noise at all times that the power is on.

2. The Aux had a volume problem from day 1. It works, but you must have the volume at max level in order to hear it. That type of volume will deafen you or blow you away in any other mode. It's just dumb.

3. After about 1 year, the 2 surround speakers and 1 woofer stopped working. Almost certainly this is due to the unit itself not outputting properly.

4. Very soon after, the 2 main speakers stopped working correctly, but for different reasons than the other 3. Now the headphone jack was getting stuck. So when you remove headphones, it still thinks it's connected, and the regular speakers don't come on.

5. 1 year after the headphone jack problems, the cd changer died. When you pressed a different disc, it just says "changing" and gets stuck there until you press the power button.

6. Very soon after that problem, the system had it's death. Now no buttons work - not even the power button.

Now you may consider the other positive reivews, look at mine and conclude the I probably didn't take care of it properly... not so. I try to keep my my electronics in mint condition. It looks as good as the day I purchased it. I'm fighting the urge to smash it on some concrete very soon though.

ps. the tri wiring gimmick only functions to make the speakers useless to any other system.
