Rated 1 out of 5 by AlienCowboy Not 5.1 surround sound
This product doesn't do what it's supposed to. It's fine as a 2.1 Stero system but absolutely useless as a 5.1 system. It doesn't have a 5.1 ch input or s/pdif input which any decent surround system will have. NO proper instructions provided to wire up this system if it can be made to work correctly as a 5.1 ch system. DO NOT BUY look for a more expensive surround sound system that will have a s/pdif input and will give you full satisfaction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Natco ok but basic
Was very impressed with my order which arrived ahead of schedule. Surround system was easy to connect via the helpful instructions. However, even though it performed the way it was meant to, the sound quality was unimpressive. if you are looking for a basic surround system that the kids and/or neighbours will appreciate, then would probably be ok. But if you are looking for high standard quality, then please give it a miss. Overall, you get what you pay for.

I wouldn't rave about them, but they do work, and they are pretty good for what they are. Except for the fact that the bass has to always be lowered to almost off, as it can get rather heavy. We've had them a while, and we've connected them to the bedroom TV. Every day it was the same routine, turn up centre, rear, subwoofer & volume to the fullest, and turn down the master on the remote to the lowest. We're only having to re-place them now, as our CKC has suddenly decided to chew the remote to bits, and it doesn't work proper unless you have a working, complete remote - lol !!!! It's because of the remote necessity, and the daily routine that I say I wouldn't rave about them

Rated 5 out of 5 by hgvdriver brilliant buy
never had a surround sound system before so wanted to buy a cheap one to try it out, now i'll be sticking to this one as the sound is perfect and the ability to adjust the volume of all speakers independantly is excellent, and you can connect to two devices.

This item is not compatible with any polaroid tv sold by asda, or any other tv sold by asda. Upon further research, this item is only compatible with very few older model televisions that have a red and white output socket. It is no use to televisions that have scart or hdmi sockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tookadum Fantastic Value - Don't believe negative reviews
Others have left reviews stating this product does not work with scart sockets? IT DOES! You just need a different cable which you can get from Poundland!
The sound is impressive for a small system. Works well with my TV and DVD set up. I plugged it direct to my TIVO box for the TV and can listen to the Radio or TV Channels via the TIVO and the sound is excellent and the speakers are a nice size to easily be placed without being an eyesore.
Take it from me - this product is well worth it !!
