Rated 2 out of 5 by c00p 1. I have had the player less than 30 days and the sound has gone out. I am hoping they won't give me a hassle about getting another one shipped to me.
2. You will only get so much sound out of the system even at the 35 max volume.
3. I wish it played blueray
overall...spend a little extra $ for a better system than this one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tickville Great sound and easy hook up. Thrilled with the quality of sound.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SimpleGuy03 lemon
I'm hoping once it gets replaced it will work normally. It was okay for the first week. The back speakers were pretty low, but I probably could have adjusted that. The problem started after my cable was set up. It worked okay for a couple of days before a a crackling buzz starting creeping in until it become constant. It sounds like a small motor is coming out of the speakers. Not exactly high quality surround sound...
Rated 1 out of 5 by LegacyUser cheaply made, defective in under 2 weeks
The product is inexpensive, can get fairly loud, and has a few audio inputs (including a built in radio tuner), but that's about as far as the benefits go. It's cheaply made, and the speakers feel light and flimsy. For a home audio device, you really don't have any good calibrating options, so if you like adjusting treble/mids or setting equalizers, you're out of luck. The radio tuner also somehow gets far louder than the optical input ever gets. All of this would be acceptable, were the product not defective after 10 days of operation.
When the device was turned on, the speakers would often crackle randomly, even after I checked and rechecked all the connections. It was infrequent and mostly happened when the device powered on or off so I dismissed it, well until the device stopped working, that is. I tested every source of audio input; the box itself seems to work fine, but it has absolutely no audio output. So much for that. I might update this later if I'm able to RMA with Walmart or RCA (which is absurdly difficult to do), or else I'd rather purchase something from a better manufacturer that won't die on me in a week and a half.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Docwilltickelya Sounds pretty good, runs too hot.
Surprisingly good sound from the pewee speakers, reasonably good information in the manual regarding speaker layout. It would benefit from more input choices. Runs very hot over the audio output heat sink on the right side of the top grill. This unit is "induction cooled" (cool air flows in
thru openings on the bottom and out the top) I'd be VERY surprised if it would last much longer than the warranty period without use of an external helper fan. (which I plan to use)
Rated 3 out of 5 by JDawggy This system was purchased along with a RCA TV at a reduced price. The system is ok for a small to medium sized room. The DVD player is good, but the speakers have wires connected to them. I prefer wireless speakers. Too many wires for me personally. But at this price, I guess I should not have expected wireless speakers. Purchased for my mother and she loves it. Decent sound.
Rated 2 out of 5 by scooby32 we set the sound system up couldn't get speakers to get sound from tv for tv and dvd ( i say wasn't doing something right) but when i called rca for help i got hang up on 2 times, then when i got to talk to someone and tell them what i needed help with she was rude and when i said excuse me she hang up on me. I don't know if bad day there or just a rude worker. I just got to say if u call be ready to be hang up on or to have someone be rude to ya. After that i return system back to walmart.
Rated 1 out of 5 by crazyhoss Piece of junk
Worked allright,but if you want to use the zoom, you have to watch your movie with the words zoom x2 or any zoom function you pick pasted across the screen for the entire movie. The tech support said (after a week) that this is normal. Well, needless to say, it was returned. I got a samsung that works correctly. Don't buy this.
Rated 1 out of 5 by smilingbutterfly System Needs bugs worked out of it!
I was unable to get DVD player to play. When the machine came on the door would come open for the disc. When I put a disc in the player the door would close and then pop back open. The player had no chance to read the disc. I was not able to hear how the speakers would work because of not being able to get the DVD player to except the disc. This Home Theater System definitely needs some bugs worked out of it. I returned the System back to Walmart for a refund.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Curtisisjunk Great Home Theater
This is a very good home theater system for the money
Rated 5 out of 5 by cleep1000 Excellent Sound Quality
Bought this bundled with an RCA TV and the price was excellent. The sound is awesome...deep, rich and full. It also comes with an AM/FM tuner which works great. There's a lot of interference in my area but I'm able to get a number of stations with this unit that come in clear. Overall, a very good product that I'd recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by May8 great product for the price
This product is great, I was a little un-sure at first about buying it but I need one so I figure why not can't pass up such a great deal. Then when I got it home and got it all hooked up, I love it.. It is perfect for everything that I watch and for game time with the kids
Rated 3 out of 5 by myself12 Not worth it.
First off, if you're like me, you want a great sounding system for your hd tv. This doesn't do it justice. Not sure exactly what rca did with this one, but i have an rca 100 watt that is WAY better than this one and spent half the money on it. When i wanted to upgrade i thought why not buy another RCA but this did No justice to the old one. It was easy as pie to put together and set up, but the overall sound quality was very poor. The speakers were crackling like they were about to blow, and the receiver itself was bulky compared to what was actually in it. I hadn't even turned the volume up to ten when things started to crackle. Not only that, but the subwoofer itself wouldn't work unless people in the movie were talking. It just made this low, growling noise when the music was on. If you can afford to wait another paycheck and put a little more away, get the samsung. Much easier, and much better. that's what i did when i returned it. Only problem with that one is the fact it doesn't have enough plug ins, but that's why they make adapters. Plus, maybe i just got a defective RCA. It's my review.
Rated 1 out of 5 by miamiexpert Cheap Product stay away

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dee0777 This product is total junk.
Worked fine for about 6 months. Now when I turn it on there is a loud beep sound. I have tried everything to resolve the problem. Disconnected everything and reconnected. I can not find the problem. I am very disappointed.
Rated 4 out of 5 I bought my third unit this week. I love the sound quality. But there is a downside.
After a year and a half, the DVD tray fails to open.
But replacement cost is so low that I think of the home theater as a rental.
I just connect the unit to the already installed speakers. Within 10 minutes the home theater is good for another 18 months.
Rated 3 out of 5 by gihsergio Bad sound system
Cheap and not well built. Loudly and fake surround system. Don't buy it if you are a lover of good home theater sounds (bose or samsung like)
Rated 1 out of 5 by SeriousBuyer23 Poor quality
This product did not produce enough sound to make a differnce to my viewing experience. Some of the speakers did not work right out of the box and the dvd player made the picture quality of my movies worse.
Rated 1 out of 5 by matty87 Dont waste your time
it was decent in the begin but then went downhill by cutting out in the middle of sentences and cut out while listening to music...not worth the money at all when for an extra $50 you can get 1000w with way more features and attachments then this one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fragrant Beautiful sound output, easy to use dvd player. Avery able surround sound.
Rated 3 out of 5 by scfastgun not what expected
have not got it to work with tv,instructions and help do not solve the problem
Rated 5 out of 5 Awsome
Never had a surround sound unit before and I am loving it. The speakers are awsome and even sounds great with PlayStation Games. I feel I didn't go wrong with this purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tomreynolds excellent
this (RCA) HOME THEATER IS THE GREATEST PEACE OF JOY,I'VE BOUGHT IN A LONG TIME!!
IT HAS GREAT SOUND, EASY USE REMOTE, CAN USE
I-POD OR MP3 PLAYER ON IT, WITCH MAKES IT A STEREO ALSO.
THE SPEAKERS ARE VERY ADJUSTABLE, SO IT MAKES IT SOUND AWSOME TOO YOUR LIKING. THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAD, WAS THE WIRES ARE TOO SHORT FOR THE REAR SPEAKERS,. I JUST MADE THEM LONGER AND IT WORKS FINE!
I REALLY SUGGEST BUYING THIS (RCA) home system,.....really!!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Princessofpersia Exceptional
I've looked at many systems out there, and for the money and quality, this is your best bet! RCA's sleek sophisticated design will attract the attention of your visitors for years to come. It's surround sound is top notch. You will not be disappointed with this product. I would recommend it to friends and family.
Rated 1 out of 5 by CMWade Terrible
This is a joke for a surround sound. Should be given away with the "bundle". 2 of the speakers did not work right out of the box. RCA you failed big time with this one!
Rated 1 out of 5 by cocogirl85 Do not waste your time
When it arrived, right out of the box, nothing worked. It wouldnt even come on. Should have known that you get what you pay for.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Princesss138 Not RCA quality
I bought the system for Christmas. Two of the speakers didn't produce sound and the DVD or disc player door won't open.
I love RCA products but this one was just not tested in the factory or something. Maybes it's just a fluke but it sure stinks to buy a surround system that doesn't produce sound!
Rated 3 out of 5 by knight1431 Nice system for the price.
This is a very nice little system for the orice you pay for it but there are several cables not included in the system and without them the system will not fully work. I had a couple of these cable connectors but i still had to buy the others.
Rated 2 out of 5 by TopGal Great Surround Sound, Poor DVD Playback
I bought this item and a little less than a month later it started skipping on DVD playback. I kept the system for the surround sound quality, which is great, but not so much for the DVD player quality. It has been quite reliable as I have had it for a long while now and the surround sound still works very well.
