Don't get a refurb

 

Wished it had worked, the HDMI reciever has more inputs than anything at a comparable price range.

Got a refurb for a great deal. Works great when it works. Good 5.1 sound with correct setup / calibration

Refurb doesn't work properly - wasn't able to return/exchange in time (purchased early for xmas gift, sat in it's box until after the return period expired. Only found the issues after setup. LED dispaly will only work for a few minutes and then dies...

Decent, inexpensive 5.1

 

You get what you pay for, and we've gotten our money's worth. No problems at all.

I got this at a local superstore almost 2 years ago and it's worked flawlessly since the day I got it. Unlike most home theater in a box solution, this isn't a dvd or blu-ray player. It has multiple HDMI inputs, as well as front and rear composite...

Definitely not 1000 watts of clean power, but it's loud enough for small to medium sized rooms. Obviously, this isn't going to win any sound quality awards, but it provides dynamic sound with the bare minimum of settings to compensate for speaker...

RCA RT2911

 

Still working, cheap, well worth the price. I think I paid around $60 for this refurb surround nearly a year ago. I honestly wasn't expecting much from a $60 refurb, but I must say that it is still going strong. Pushing two 12" subs in a ported box...

The remote that came with it was horrible right out of the box. Had a rattle like it had been thrown against a wall prior to delivery. Barely works, pain in my

Works

 

I purchased this as a temporary solution for my computer until I saved up more money as my old Logitech 5.1 sound system died. I have since replaced this system with a Yamaha HTIB which sounds worlds better. If you just need a simple ok system for...

If you get a working one it works well enough once adjusted. I used Optical out to mine or the aux line in as I used it with my computer

The auto off after like 20-30 minutes of not using it is really annoying ; The fan it came with was bad and was really loud as many others have mentioned but I replaced it in mine and it's completely silent and doesn't over heat

RCA RT2911

 

small, sleek, only the options I needed, easy to navigate via remote. 5.1 works good.

loud fan. (fixed by removing fan - hasn't had any ill effects because of this as it doesn't put out too much heat)
