Welcome to a review of the DENON DHT-1513BA HOME THEATER SYSTEM. The strength of this system is definitely the sound quality. The Boston acoustic speakers sound clear and pleasant even at low volumes. With these acoustic speakers the highs are clear and the bass is full and strong. It really stands out, and the mids & vocals really shine as well.

The AVR-1513 AV surround receiver adds to the sound make up as well. The audio delay adjustment is located on the remote control, part number RC-1170. When you are watching TV and vocals are slightly off, you can adjust it easily and directly without pausing the movie.

The DHT-1513BA definitely doesn’t have tons of extra features but it produces great sound. It is equipped with a 100W Boston Acoustics active subwoofer with an 8″ driver for enhanced bass response. The compressed audio restorer offers enhanced sound for content stored on your Apple iPod or iPhone. Discrete circuitry delivers powerful surround sound for 3D movies. The speaker system includes two front satellite speakers, two surround satellite speakers, a center speaker, and a powerful, compact subwoofer. This sound system is solid home theater system and for the price, an excellent purchase.

• Multiple A/V inputs, including 2 HDMI and 1 USB port
• Music and photo file playback via USB port
• Headphone jack and coaxial output

REMOTE: 504Q4605101

RATING: 2.8/5

Welcome to a review of the HAIER LEF2280 LED HDTV SERIES. This models external design is characterized by a glossy black finish, rounded corners and a swiveling pedestal stand. In all, it has been stated that the look is attractive with its sleek design. The picture quality of this series would be OK for an entry-level set if not for its lack of uniformity. Unfortunately it does suffer from these issues, such as brighter areas in certain parts of the screen and discoloration in others, which cause it to get a fairly large knock in terms of overall picture quality and performance.

The LE55B1381 has two component inputs and 3 HDMI inputs which provide a simple solution for high quality audio and video input. The USB input can be used for video, audio and digital pictures.
The feature set on this TV is about as bare as it comes, but for the price range it is satisfactory. The remote control that comes with this series is the 504Q460510 which will operate all the normal functions for your TV.

Although the TV has some decent points to it, the serious uniformity flaws make it difficult for the buyer on the hunt, especially with many other competitor options out there.
