The RCA RTD258 is a 5.1 channel home theater system that is suitable for small to medium-sized rooms and is a step up from the RTD217.  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 RTD258 includes a 5-disc progressive scan DVD player that offers multi-format playback to give it support for rewritable discs, VCD, SVCD, MP3, and WMA files.  Unlike the RTD217, the DVD player offers 1080i upconversion for high definition video and includes HDMI, S-Video, composite, and component video outputs.  It also has a digital AM/FM tuner and a USB input for playing music, photos, and videos directly from an MP3 player or digital camera.  The RTD258 is available in a silver finish and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
