Rated 4 out of 5 by not bad for its price I have just purchased this product and had to buy an additional cable to get audio going. But once the audio cable was purchased, the sound was not bad. I was expecting hear something worst but was mistaken. Needs more power though. Overall, I am ok with the purchse. April 23, 2010
