Although everything came equipped for the surround sound system to the movies played through BluRay, there is not a cord needed for regular tv. You will need to buy an additional digital cord to make this happen.Read More
I love everything about this system. I would have given it 5* if it will play DVD/CD from the United Kingdom. I dont know how to get it playing the UK disc if some one will help. Apart from that, the sound and everything is just phenomenal. I love it and got it on a bargain. really happy about this. Highly recommended.Read More

I bought this Home Theater System for my husband last month, it works great! My husband had to purchase a few wires, but, other than that, it works great! He loves it...Read More
I bought this last Christmas as a family gift. It was easy to install and the sound quality is great. The kids enjoy the surround sound with Playstation 3 games, and the Blue Ray is a great feature. I enjoy playing my Pandora stations in stereo. No complaints. Very happy with this systemRead More
My husband and I were shopping around for a new home theater system to go with our new 3D TV. We looked at a lot of systems. Samsung, Sony, etc. I'd have to say I am truly glad I chose this one. It was factory refurbished and came factory sealed. I loved that it had a blue ray player in it to go with the amazing quality of our new TV. We have had no problems at all with this system. It is very simple to hook up. Everything is color coded and "idiot proof". I did it all by myself in about 45 minutes while my husband was working, and I know NOTHING about electronics, but I was excited when it came and decided to give it a shot. We've had it about a month and it even survived a flood! The sound quality is phenomenal The sound on it "smacks you in the face" as my husband said. (My upstairs neighbor seems to agree as she has said she can feel the floor rumble sometimes when we're watching a movie) I was skeptical because of the negative reviews, but the price was right so I figured I'd give it a shot and re-sell it if I didn't like it. Needless to say, it's not going anywhere! This is a great system. You will not be disappointed if you buy this! Hope this was helpful!Read More
So, as I read the previous reviews (especially the not so positive), I was a little hesitant. I really wanted the surrounds, because I was disappointed with the sounds from my NEW 50" Panasonic Plasma. One of the reps told me to purchase the Optical cable ($5.99) which I did, and I already had 2 HDMI cables (Free from your cable guy or $39.99 from Sears). Plugged everything in properly the surround sounds were still awful. I called Panasonic and they walked me through. Here's the kicker...you actually need 2 HDMI cables to get that blast surround sound you want. I had cranked up the volume to 100 prior to this 2nd cable and wasn't happy. What I had to do was reverse my HDMI cables. When I turn on my TV, I am actually on HDMI 2. Now, I only need to turn the volume to 20 and it is cinema surround sound loud. They also walked me through programming my Blueray for optimal sound (this comes in different level sounds). HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND. YOU WILL NEED: 6-foot Black Digital Optical Audio TosLink Cable Male to Male, AND 2 HDMI CABLES. HOPE THIS HELPS. VANESSARead More
I bought my husband this for his Valentines Day gift he loves it, only thing that is wrong is that we have to purchase additional cords to hear the surround sound thru the TV. Not happy about that,but for it perform properly we have to purchase an audio co-axile.Read More
