Pros: tons of inputs and processing

Cons: delicate pod, THX certification is a gimmick

Good system but newer alternatives

Pros: Value, digital inputs

Audioengine offers much better sound quality but fewer features in terms of input quality and of course lacks the 5.1.

I did compare it to the Klipsch, BOSE, Sony solutions which did not...
