Hi Fi was bought in 2004 to use as a 5.1 surround system. The firs thing I did was, I hooked it to my 6 channel DVD player and ten after proper speakers set up, I played a Terminator 2 DVD - The sound and the sound effects produced by this system where Amazing! I was able to hear the slightest rustles and sounds that I never heard when watched that same movie on my PC, Very clear and detailed sound. Now something about the speakers woofer system: every time the shoot gun was fired my room was shaking and i could feel the bass going trough my body..
Conclusion: The hi fi costed me 499 pounds that time and it was worth every penny.. Since that day I became
DVD movies addict and stopped going to cinema... Its been over 6 years now since I bought it but the Technics hi hi still works and sounds as good as it was new.
I have had this system for just over 6 years and found the quality amazing. The overall performance of the system is perfect. I have used the Technics for everything from my old cassettes to watching DVD's and the sound quality is near perfect reproduction to a cinema experiance. The only complaint is the surround speaker wires are a little short at around 8 - 10 meters, they do cover a small front room, and the disc change speed if on a shuffle mode can be a little slow. What this system is lacking to make it the perfect home cinema is an Optical input for the "pure Gaming experiance" The price when I bought it in July 2002 was £599.00, and for a seperate system of this calibur was an exellent price. I have bought two other cinema surround systems since, an Awia and Kenwood both under the £300.00 mark and still prefer my Technics even after 6 years. For the total package and space savings i would recommend the 5 changer DVD system as it also plays DivX and DVD MP3 discs.
The Technics KIT-SC-EH790 is a sound temple. Its mentioned 360W of power is easily enough for any party, event, or even just to cheer yourself up. The quality of the sound in this mini system is staggering - it's the closest you will ever get to live music unless you are standing in a recording studio. It also makes television less of a pastime but an experience, blasting sound at you from your own hifi - I didn't expect to get this kind of power from something I could keep in my home. And it doesn't look too bad either!
