Room filling bass.
Great overall sound quality.
Analog and digital enabled.
Strong overall audio performance.
Quality bass response despite lack of subwoofer.
Visually pleasing design also optimal for sonic performance.
Simple setup and operation.
Pretty great sound for a compact system.
Not wall mountable.
No built-in equalization ability.
Lack of remote.
Does not include optical cable.
The speakers don't play terribly loud and they overemphasize detail.
There's no remote, and no way to toggle between inputs.
Minor distortion on deep bass at maximum volume.
No remote control.
Not possible to adjust bass level.
Volume knob/on-off switch feels cheap.
Can overemphasize mid-lows (though that may just be my setup).
Automatic off might annoy some.
