The speakers allow you to customize your sound, allowing you to choose your volume, bass, and treble. There is not a remote or a receiver that comes with this item, but since this product is so cheap, it's worth the deal. The wiring for the speakers are longer than ones that are sometimes twice the cost of this deal. This sound system is compatible with DVD, CD, games, and your PC.
The physical appearance of the speakers are pretty decent for its price. Like I stated above, you can customize your volume, bass, and treble. If you are thinking about hanging these speakers on the wall, you don't need to buy those expensive wall mounts, thumbtacks work perfectly fine and are way much cheaper (about 2 dollars for 100).The surround speakers have wiring that is approximately 10 feet long, which is longer than some wiring from products much more expensiver than this product.
The home theater system does not have a remote available for the speakers so you must get up and change the volume and other options manually. The front speakers could have wiring that is longer, they are about a third of the surround speakers wiring.
The home theater system is definitely worth it if you want an affordable system that gives great performance, personal customization, and great quality. Just a note to some, this system is better use with smaller rooms due to wiring.
