Quirky setup but excellent valueI wouldn’t appreciate subtle differences in dynamic sound ranges or bass boosting; getting a powered multiple speaker system was what mattered. And this Philips kit serves that purpose. Perhaps I was slow on the setup learning curve, but once I figured out remote (ugh, another remote), all was well. Trick is to know when to adjust volume from Philips monitor vs your TV’s monitor. Sound from Dolby/surround sound broadcasts/DVDs is amazing in “multiple speaker”‘setting. And this was a great bargain at sale price.
