The Basics

Customer review by Chocolate83

4.0 stars by Chocolate83

This item is for someone who wants a traditional five speaker stereo system. The DVD player is the real value. It plays wonderfully in both picture quality and sound. Wow. However, on a scale of quiet to very loud, this system stops short at loud. Definitely not enough volume for a house party, but enough to feel the effects of watching a movie. The surround sound speakers are wired only, so it would take too much reconstruction for me to hook them up. It would be much better if they offered wireless back speakers. Instructions and set-up were a breeze. Definitely for someone who just wants the basics.

Customer review by EDstudent

4.0 stars by EDstudent

I have a 24'' RCA boob tube flat screen that i purchased about five years ago. It would be nice if i could afford a flat screen, but i'm in college and my 24'' has a good picture for not being a LCD or Plasma. I wanted surround sound to go with this, so i purchased this model at another store for $99 bucks. It is great for surround sound. It rumbled the room when the movie reached its peak sounds. People need to remember that this is a home theater and not for Music. If you want something to pump out your tunes then this is not for you, but if you're looking for something to spice up your home movie experience then i would reccomend this to you. Make sure you read the booklet and adjust individual channel volumes. You might want the surround speakers up louder than the front ones, and the sub woofer should be on "powerful" to get the best contrast between treble of the 5 spearks and the 1 subwoofer. You might experience a tinny sound when you first put it together, but adjust the different channel volumes and place them right and you'll solve the problem. you can't beat this item for the price. Especially $99 that i paid on sale.

Customer review by butterflygirl2878

We purchased this product as part of an LCD 42 inch television bundle and I think this is the perfect size system for us with a small living room. The DVD player works great and it was simple to hook up and operate. The looks and size of the system are nice. You will need to purchase a sound/audio cable to hook the system up to the television to listen to the television in surround sound, if not, it will only come through the speakers when the DVD player is used.

With this item, what cable will give me the best sound and picture to/from my tv? I have the most advanced tv with inputs for any type of cable. Does it come with that cable?
by an anonymous customer 8/26/2010
  • I actually use the RYMC wide flat white 6 in one cables Comcast gives you if you know what I mean, they also call them component cables I believe. I get better performance visual and audio wise as opposed to the HDMI and this thing has both capability. I sometimes use them both depending on what the movie is. It has optic but I find it to not work very well on my Toshiba regza 42..

  • takes HDMI, digital audio and component video cables as well as a rca-type audio connection. I tried the digital audio but can't say it improved 5.1 quality over the component video or regular rca audio.

  • connect the HDMI output from the RTD317W to your TV's HDMI input, this will give you the best vdieo quality. If you're using the TV's audio output for playback of audio through the RTD317W, then you should also connect the OPTICAL output (if your TV has one) to the OPTICAL input of your RTD317W - this will give you the highest quality digital surround sound audio signal

  • You only need a good HDMI cable. The sound can come through your TV, but it is probably best to have it go directly from the system to your speakers, which is the default.

We have a LG flat screen tv and I was just wondering if I needed anything additional to get this started once purchased.
by Tess43085 10/18/2010
  • yes you need the white yellow and green or red three cables or one hd cable if you have hd tv, if not use the three cable one you can buy or probably have one laying around house like i did, i bought the hd cable and then found out i didnt have hd tv, lol

  • I would recommend you use your own cable to connect from your TV to the receiver -- component video (3 cables), or simply audio cable (2 rca-type connection cables). If your Tv is HD then HDMI will work too. There are inputs for all 3 types I mention on the back of the receiver.

  • I'd recommend using a HDMI cable for connection of the RTD317W to the TV. If your TV or Sat-Cable box has an OPTICAL output, I'd recommend using an optical cable for connection of audio signal.
