    I was unsure if I would like the sound quality from a compact system. After owning this, I wish I would have gotten it sooner. The sub isnt powered, but it puts out alot of bass. And it takes up about 1/4 the space of my old setup. I like having everything in one unit. The price was hard to beat. I have it hooked up to my Lg HDTV via hdmi and optical cable, and the picture and sound is great. The usb and ipod features are nice. Best bang for the buck I've found in a while!

    First let me say that I'm pretty positive it was this one that I had. I purchased it a little more than a year ago without insurance. It worked great then 3 months ago the surround sound began to act up and no matter what we did we couldn't fix it. Then we just removed the surround and hooked it straight to the tv so that we can still watch movies, NOPE! after that it all of a sudden could not read new movies then could not read any DVD's at all. Did what we could. warranty passed. It was now scrap. Luckily someone was at least willing to by the speakers off of my husband and I. Don't know if I'll buy LG again. Prove me wrong LG that your products Do give great quality for more than a year because so far your Home Theater System tells me otherwise.

        Comments about LG 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater Sound System:

        I at first loved this home theater in a box system and to have affordable Blu-ray at the time was great. But then the player had difficulty playing Blu-ray disks from Netflix.. so I stopped getting Blu-ray disks. It plays regular DVDs just fine and is saving me money from Netflix. The sounds is wonderful and overall it was a good purchase. Would purchase another LG when ready to upgrade.

                I have this connected to an LG LED LCD and the system works fine after being set-up. However, it does not remember settings when it is turned off. When I turn it back on, it goes back to default settigs and I must re-enter the settings that I want (PLX II Movie). Unforunately, the TV also goes back to it's default after it has been off. Everytime I must turn the TV speakers off, set the TV to use the home theater and set the audio system from Bypass (apparent default) back to the desired PLX II Movie. I am returning.

                    Comments about LG 5.1 Channel Black DVD Home Theater Sound System:

                    I bought this system to mate to my new LED TV. The voices are very clear and understandable. The music is inspiring (depending on the loudness). I like the Ipod attachment capability. The only problem I've encountered (probably user error) is I can not link the system to my ISP remote controller. I can start and end the system with the universal remote but not control the volume. I may not be using the proper product code. You must use the digital optical cable to have sound while watching TV programs. The HDMI connection is only active for DVD/CD/Radio use. I chose this system because it was a LG product and would mate to the LG LED TV, hopefully eliminating a remote controller. I may do this if I can link to the Comcast remote controller in the future.

                                  First, its a good product for starters. The only problem that I had with this system (which LG did fix under warranty) the dvd player started skipping for no reason, lg fixed the tray and now seems to be working fine. Sound is good, not really great but like I said, nice starter unit, or apartment unit.

Good to see that it has 4 quality speakers, with long enough wiring, to place it easily around your home, to make it a real surround sound theater system. Win win situation all in all.
