I purchased this product as a christmas present for my boyfriend to use in our two bedroom apartment. Note: We have a 40inch LCD Samsung Tv. When taking everything out of the box everything hooks into the subwoofer by the red and white audio cables. The problem that we ran into was that our tv has no audio output on the back of the tv. The only audio output it has is the optical audio output. This posed a huge problem for us because we couldn't hook it straight into our tv to watch with everyday tv. It worked perfectly through our blu ray. Other than the inconvenience of only having the red and white audio cables the surround sound worked great.

After much research I finally bought this to replace my old custom built 2.1 speaker system for my PC, and I'm more than happy I must say.
Hooked the whole thing up to my PC, then I set speakers to small in Windows and went into my Creative X-FI SB software and turned the BASS Crossover to 35Hz (sounded the best, not too strong nor too weak). After installation and tweaking I fired up Battlefield 3; simply blown away by how good everything sounded, the speakers are crystal clear, radio chatter sounds great through the center speaker, firing a tank sounds just bloody awesome, the sub is a powerful beast. And best of all you can tweak each channel volume separately which is nice if you want the center to be louder or something. The back speaker cables are about 8 - 12 ft rougly. The LED screen and remote are a very nice touch. For this price it probably doesn't get much better than this.
I bought these speaker and was instantly amazed at how loud they were. The bass is perfection, so much that I need to turn it down because my walls are shaking XD. I was at first having problems getting the rear speakers to come on and after 30 seconds on Tech Support with AUSTIN it was fixed! Just make sure you press the ProLogic button.... The rear cords JUST made it to where I want them so that wasnt a problem, but it may be for some other people. For this price I dont think there's anything better. Thank You!
<span>Let me begin by stating that I received this system from VM Audio in exchange for a honest review. One of the conditions was full disclosure on my part that I did receive this item for free for testing purposes.</span><br /><br /><span>Pro's: Great sounding system for little cost. This product costs about $110 shipped to you door making it a nice, inexpensive 5.1 surround sound home theater system. The system will not only increase the the volume of you current system but it plays lower and more defined compared to the stock speakers found in flat panel displays. I was a little worried about the small subwoofer as I have a large media room, but the 8" subwoofer was more than enough to fill the 25' x 14' room.</span><br /><br /><span>The plug and play connections are easy to make using basic audio/video RCA's. This makes it easy for anyone to the system up in a matter of minutes assuming that your tv and other components have audio outputs.</span><br /><br /><span>The speakers and subwoofer cabinet/source are nice looking with a black textured plastic and gloss dark red trim. It should look nice in any room.</span><br /><br /><span>USB/Card Readers: This is always a nice feature when you just want to listen to music. Simply plug in your iPod/MP3 player or a SD card and you're ready to go.</span><br /><br /><span>It comes with a nice little remote so you don't have to get up and change sources though I found it much easier to switch albums and artists via my iPod.</span><br /><br /><span>Cons: Lack of digital input. If your components don't have the white/red RCA audio outs then you will need to get a converter or find another way to convert the signal.</span><br /><br /><span>The buttons feel a little cheap and loose so it feels like it could easily break if you press them too hard.</span><br /><br /><span>Cord's are not very long and were not long enough for me to properly run everything for a clean install. For testing purposes I just strung the wires and used extensions but to do it properly and to make it look clean you are going to have to buy more wire. For this reason I am only going to continue running this as a 2.1 system.</span><br /><br /><span>Conclusion:</span><br /><br /><span>This system is great for anyone on a budget. Is it a high end or audiophile grade system, no but the price also reflects that it doesn't fall into that category. What is does manage to do is sound good, play low, and adds clarity over stock television speakers. VMI provided these speakers to me for testing purposes and after testing them I would not hesitate to buy a set for myself or recommend them to friends.</span><div><span style="font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;"><br /></span></div>
This system is relly good and it fits right into your living room . The set-up is easy BUT pleaser note to use the remote toi activate the five others. It's great for the price and you should be satisfied. I would certainly recommend this product tto a friend.
EASY TO ASSEMBLE
I bought this product a few months ago. I currently live in a small, 10x15 (dorm room) and I was looking for something cheap, good looking, and loud. So far, Ive got everything I wanted. It comes with 5 individual speakers, all slightly taller than an unsharpened pencil. The main subwoofer is big, but not too bulky. I only use it for simple stero input, but it has many other options as well. I have yet to find a way to use the USB input, it doesnt seem to work on my iPod.
The system is loud. Granted, I have it in a rather confined space, but considering I can hear it throught the building when near max volume... it pack a punch. The base really kicks as well. I normally have to turn it down in order to balance the songs out.
A great feature of this system is the ability to individually tune each speaker. This allows for a great surround stero sound.
One important thing to note, is the very shor length of the speaker wires. They a much to short to place behind, and infront of you, so you must chose one or the other. However, ordering some extesion wire (~http://goo.gl/imB1TY~) will easily fix this.
When I first purchased these, I was extreemly dissapointed to find the left and right outputs caused the spakers to squeal. I contacted VM, and they were quick to to replace the unit. I diddnt want to pay for shipping, so I stored them away, and used only the other 3 speakers. Quite recently, (1.5 months later) I plugged them back in, and they now work fine. Nothing has broken, or shown signs of wear. They are holding up quite nicely
All in all, these speakers a great, and easy to set up right out of the box. 4/5 due to the short wires, and somewhat cheap feel to the individual speakers.
I'd reccomend it for: Use in a single room, and idealy for music.
If you're looking for a set for a home theater, then this probably is NOT a good choice, the individual speakers a too bulky, and it isnt really what it's designed for.
NOTE: As far as I can tell, there is no difference in performance between the White, Black and Red models. The only difference is their color, and the style of remote they use. (and the price of course)
