" ...  So i connected my hdd to tv and played a few offline content and the sound quality was amazing. ... I played a few content on Netflix and amazon prime and even there i felt that the sound quality was amazing. ... Coming to music i played a few music on YouTube as well as spotify and again it performed like a beast. ... Literally any type of music you listen, it just makes the music and songs sound great. ... 2 The sound system does not automatically set the highest quality audio like dolby digital. ... If you are looking for a sound system and dont want to invest a lot of money , then this is totally for you.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The surround sound and channel separation is fantastic. ... The surround sound is just unbelievable and the system does pretty well in music mode with the rear speakers calibrated to plus 6dBL with the distance level at 6M and ALL FRONT placement.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I was looking for a surround sound system and this fit well in my budget. ... For people who are looking to just increase the sound of their TV this will be over and above for that a simple sound bar should do, but over a Yamaha 108 or a JBL 2.1 which are priced similarly, I would recommend this because it's just a level above experience, I can safely say having heard both the sound bars. ... I have kept it in a standard configuration with 3 front and two back instead of the all front configuration and it sounds the best imo in that config. ... So in all of you are looking for a surround sound system in the 20k price range go for it if you do not mind a wired system.  ...  "
