Pros: Value, digital inputs
Cons: Sound is better than average but not audiophile
Great system back in the day. Sound quality is quite good especially for movies where detail isn't the primary focus. Bass is punchy and surprisingly tight. Given the number of used receivers and speakers out there some good budget options can probably be found on kijiji or craigslist. Audioengine offers much better sound quality but fewer features in terms of input quality and of course lacks the 5.1.
