Customer reviews & ratings
For my listening pleasure, it good enough for me. I'm a 59 yr old man that is enjoying the listening pleasures. I thoroughly love it
I purchased a new Samsung Smart TV and realized that my 10 year old RCA 5 DVD/Surround Sound System and new TV didn't have any compatible audio connections. Most of my collection is now on a home brewed media server that the TV can see through the network connections. Now, with the new Home Theater System, I can pull the audio out via an optical cable to the sound system and get the surround sound from my movies or TV Channels. Great for watching last weeks big football game. There are standard RCA jacks for input, so I can also use my old VHS player and get the sound filling the room. There are plenty of options via HDMI cables and the built in BlueTooth to allow all of my sources to be used. Great, versatile system for my needs. Hook up was easy - I used the hard wired lines I had installed and buried in the walls when remodeling and replaced the old speakers with the new. There is enough wire on the supplied speakers to route them to the back of a smaller room than I have, so you just match the color-coded wires/speakers and connect them on the unit. If you are doing a longer run of speaker wire, I recommend using a good, heavier grade of speaker wire to minimize loss of quality. Now when my favorite war movies are playing, I can really crank up the BOOMS and SWISHES to make my windows rattle!
Very good system
We bought this to get better sound from our Samsung HD TV. The first thing we learned is that a lot of TV shows aren't broadcast in stereo. Still, we are getting much better clarity when just the 3 front speakers are broadcasting. I am still adjusting the speaker positions. Instructions are good but not great. It was easy to set up with 3 HDMI ports. It replaced an ancient Pioneer system which will now be hooked up to an equally ancient HD TV that does not have HDMI ports. All is well.
This is my second one I love it and I love the time frame it arrive in thanks
Loud stereo and Decent surround
Loud stereo. It doesn't turn off at full volume like most. Great settings for distance and power. Great for movies n music! My front right speaker was D.O.A.. Exchanged the system hassle free and every things great. Easy color coded wire and plug in. HDMI seems fairly lag free. Great lil stereo!
Great sound for such small speakers
You get a lot of features and sound for a fairly small price. There are a couple gripes though. The head unit doesn't remember each inputs last used setting. I use aux1 input out of my TV for online apps like Netflix and Pandora, HDMI 1 for CATV, HDMI 2 for Xbox one and HDMI 3 for Blu Ray. If I play an audio disk in my Blu Ray, then switch to CATV to watch a movie, I hear a lot of dead spots in the audio. I figured out why. There are 3 Dolby presets, music, movie, and a simulated mode. You have to change the surround mode to movie manually each time, even though the only thing I listen to on CATV is movies and TV shows. When in music mode, the unit detects any pause in sound and cuts off the amp. In movie mode the silence sensitivity is more forgiving. Longer pauses in sound are not detected as no audio like in music mode, therefore not cutting off the amp. If the unit would remember that setting it would lessen the frustration of not hearing important parts of the sound. It's easy to change to the right setting, you just hit the surround button until you see movie mode. Fixed! That leads me to the second gripe; the display for the three Dolby modes have long names that don't fit the screen, so it scrolls the mode name. The mode names all start with the same first 2 or 3 words then is followed by music, movie or simulated. You have to press the surround button and wait a few seconds for it to scroll until you see music, movie, etc... then if it's not right, then press the surround button again and wait a few more seconds to see which mode it goes to next. Pretty easy to remember that it is in order but I have enough irrelevant info to remember without adding this to that list. Would be better to start with music, movie etc then say Dolby.that way the actual mode name would appear immediately.
RCA Home Theater System
Other reviews were pretty close to how this product is. I haven't had it long (not even one month yet), but so far, so good. Was simple to use and set up. The sound quality is like others stated, is fine for a small room I guess. Not as powerful as some other 1000 watt systems I've had [seems like maybe 400 watts only/over rated maybe? But it still does the job and has good sound. I love all the HDMI hook ups (and is a big reason I bought this)! So simple to hook up all your devices. Haven't tried the 'Bluetooth' yet so cannot comment on that. One of the things I think should be improved, is a longer sub woofer cord. It's only like maybe 8 ft. long (I like to be able to move my sub woofer where ever I want it in the room. Over all this was a good deal for the price!
I'm satisfied, is it's a good purchase
The sound isn't crystal clear and nuanced as more expensive systems. That said it's awesome for the price. I'm using it for my bedroom and so far I love it. I've had it less than a month but I've had RCA products in the past and they hold up. Overall a good purchase.
worked well for the first few months
then it started acting up, six months in all of the HDMI ports stopped working. so I wired it through the auxiliary, and now that's started cutting out. 8 months and it's ready for the trash.
