Theater Solutions TS512 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System   

This is a new compact, HTIB high-definition 5.1 home theater speaker system that's simple to set up and use. The TS512 features a Pro Logic channel switch to integrate all your Dolby Surround formatted movies, music and games and deliver a true surround experience.   (Please read the summary in the review before deciding if this is the product for you)

The Speaker system consists of five speakers - left, center and right front channels with two rear surrounds - and one powered subwoofer.  The Theater Solutions TS512 600-watt 5.1 surround sound speaker system that offers everything you need for a compact quick and cheap speaker system... 

This system makes it simple to just plug in your PC, DVD or music player, or video game console.  It is ideal in my opinion for a bedroom or PC system.  All five speakers in this home theater are timbermatched because they are identical, which creates a seamless, equal blend of sound and style.

In summary.

To be perfectly honest... This is an affordable, easy option that is ideal for an exclusively Music system and as a Personal Computer audio system.  For a home theater?  It is entirely up to you.  Guaranteed this system will be a solid improvement to a pair of computer speakers (blow you away improvement).  However, the problem is the lack of digital inputs.  As a result, if you're device uses only HDMI or optical for audio, this product is a waste of money.  Whatever the source ensure you have analog outputs for audio (Headphone out jack or RCA's, aka red and white cables or right and left out)  as you can see on the back of the connect here, you have no other option.

I must re-iterate, I am not giving this product a bad review just stating its cons.  The lack of digital inputs essentially disables the use of the decoding properties in devices (for DTS audio..etc).  Its ability to handle 600w RMS is commendable.  This is why I would only recommend this product if you're using DVD players, Personal Computers or simple audio devices.  Ideally with a 5.1 surround receiver.  It comes with all the necessary cables and everything you will need and at under $100?  It could prove to be an awesome purchase.
