The Sony HT-CT550QW Theater System is awesome! It works very well for us and It has given us a lot of entertainment pleasure. The sound quality is wonderful and everything sounds so realistic. My husband loves it for the loud explosions in movies and other loud sounds. I love it for things like rain and thunderstorm sounds in a movie. The price is reasonable too and we would certainly buy one again if this one wears out or breaks. It is certainly worth the money. We use this home theater system with dvds or blu-rays and it works wonderful for both of them. It really does improve the sound of everything that is in the movie. My husband and I watch many movies and it makes it so much more enjoyable for us. Movies are a huge part of your entertainment. We don't go out to the movie theaters much,but then we really don't need to do it because we can be so much more comfortable watching our movies in the comfort of our own living room on our sofa with the nice recliners.
