The RCA RT2870 is a 5.1 channel home theater system that is suitable for small to medium-sized rooms.  The system is comprised of four satellite speakers, one center speaker, and a subwoofer which each provide 167-watts of power for a total system power of 1000 watts.  It features Dolby Digital 5.1 channel surround sound technology to provide a full, wide band frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz.  The RT2870 includes a progressive scan DVD player that offers multi-format playback to give it support for rewritable discs, VCD, SVCD, MP3, and WMA files.  The DVD player has a digital AM/FM tuner and a front panel USB input for playing music, photos, and videos directly from an MP3 player or digital camera.  The RT2870 offers flexible speaker configuration since it can be wired without the rear speakers and is Energy Star qualified for low power consumption when on standby.  The system is available in a black finish and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.

I didnt know they had 2 different types. But usually the picture above is what is going to come. If the DVD or Blu-Ray has a digital optical audio output or the usual red/white audio out thats supposed to go into the TV you can hook it up just fine! Go to my youtube channel to ask further questions.
