For $300 there is nothing can can touch it. 5 speakers and sub included and even at $300 is still less than places have it online at $240 it was a steal. It's $350+ at most places. Now after saying that take the system for what it is, a satellite system with a small powered subwoofer. It will shine in smaller rooms and litterally blow away anything htib has to offer as far as speakers and a sub.
