Unit is prone to considerable delay when switching input sources - users report waiting up to 5 seconds before having access to desired content

1 agrees

Bass output is somewhat lacking despite the dedicated subwoofer - most bass-heavy audio including hip-hop/electronic music and action movie content feels "choked" or under-represented

1 agrees

Minimal selection of input/output jacks is not recommended for users with a large amount of external devices - included disc-playing capabilities appear to warrant minimal I/O jacks

1 agrees

Subwoofer connectivity style makes unit significantly more prone to speaker malfunction - many users report a small problem with the woofer that renders the rest of the unit useless

1 agrees

Remote control is awkwardly arranged and fairly difficult to use in general - several users report malfunction within the first year of use
