The amp/tuner puts out plenty of power and is very easy to navigate. Set up is very simple.
I swapped out all of the speakers for bigger/better sound reproduction. The amp had no trouble adjusting to the speaker upgrade and now it sounds terrific.

            Hands Down the Best Deal for the Money

            By 

            from California

            Comments about Sony 5.1 Channel Black Surround Sound Home Theater System:

            With the employee discount and free shipping, this is the best deal for the money on any similarly-featured surround sound system. It's a solid system that you will not be dissappointed with. It auto-calibrates the sound for an amazing movie watching experience. It has iPhone/iPod connection. I'm enjoying all of my digital content, BluRay DVDs and Cable TV in great surround sound. I'd recommend this to anyone.

You want perfect design it yourself.....
