Great HTS - but not really wireless
on March 13, 2006
First, It is the best HTS I have heard in long time. It is super sleek. Easy hook up. The DVD/CD player has the best design with touch screen controls and cool blue lights. The remote control receiver is in the center speaker - so it doesn't matter where you put the DVD/CD player. The digital amp is in the sub woofer - agian great design - because you have less compenents to manage. It is a single DVD/CD player, but is has MP3 technoloy. I had a sony 5 disk changer before, but I never used it unless I was listening to music and then it took forever to program the songs, disks, shuffle, repeats, tracks, etc. Now, just burn a MP3 CD and forget it.
So now for the bad news. It's not truely "wireless". And my definition of wireless is - no wires. Yes the front speakers, sub and center all have wires, I expected that. Yes the rear speakers do receive IR transmission. But, one speaker has to be plugged in to a wall outlet and the two rear speakers have to be connect by 1 speaker cable. In my book, techinically not a wireless rear speaker system.
BUT, I love it and I would buy it again.
