- (December 30, 2005) The setup consisted of just plugging in 3 wires and the ac adapter. You punch in the song number from the provided mini binder and you're good to go. It already has 300 built-in songs from a variety of genres, but additional songs come in cartridges that are about $50 a pop. It's attached with a long cable, but you can buy a separate wireless mic. These random pictures (mountains, fields, oceans, etc) pop up on the screen while the songs are playing, and they get pretty boring and annyoing after a while.
- (October 20, 2004) I was able to put together an entire Yamaha Home Theater system working with on-line vendors. Sounds cheap right......wrong! I purchased Yamaha's HTR-5660 receiver, which puts out a modest 85 watts RMS across 6 channels. Yamaha has always had a reputation for top quality electronics, at all price points. However, speakers were never their forte. Then came the new NS and HX series speakers in 2003. The center piece of my system is two NS-777's mated with a Yamaha SW315 subwoofer. I also have a Yamaha NS-C444 front center channel speaker and two NS-333's in the rear. I have not yet purchased a rear center channel. This system is awesome. All the speakers are tone/voice matched and
- (August 21, 2007) It's the best product for the price. After a couple of weeks hunting for the best one, I came to the conclusion that this was it. For me the most important part of this system was that it came with 4 microphones. All of them are wireless and work perfectly. They even came in an snazzy aluminum case. As said early it has the best range for the price. I literally walked around the whole neighborhood and blasted my speakers with them. Now for the downsides; the first unit I got shorted when I plugged it into the wall, the 2nd one was okay though. Also the knobs to control squelch and volume for each mic. are very, very small. And lastly is that the microphones do not fit in standard microphone

- (09/10/2013) I use this mic in situations where I have only one person to speak on camera. Its best where there is no background noise. For two people you need to either use the handheld that goes with this transmitter or come up with another solution like a boom mic. The handheld is awkward because the interviewer has to go back and forth with the mic and you can get inconsistent sound as well as wind noise. If you control the environment however it works nicely. Before purchasing this I read a review that said the boom mic works best but this is still a lot better than the in-camera mic.
