The RCA RTD317W DVD Home Theater System gives you everything you need for a full home theater experience. It has HDMI digital output with upconversion to 1080p resolution. This produces crystal clear quality picture without any interference. You can hook up countless amounts of devices to this system with the optical input, line-in and AUX connections. The optical input allows connection to TVs, satellites or cable boxes for a complete theater experience. With 40 watts in each of the 5 satellite speakers and 50 watts in the subwoofer, you get 250 watts of total power for high quality audio. It’s compatible with multiple media formats: DVD, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, CD, CD-R/RW, CDDA and JPG. Each of these types of media can be played on the RTD317W.

This Home theater system is easy to set up.  It comes with color coded speakers so it is easy to tell which speaker goes where.  It has good picture quality, but people have a split opinion of the sound quality of these speakers. Some people say that the speakers have very good sound quality and that the sound is crisp and clear.  But others say that the sound quality is not good.  People claim that the sound is not loud enough and that there is sometimes a loud popping sound that comes from the speakers.  The remote also does not work very well.

Overall, this could be a good purchase for some, but not for all.  This home theater system does have a few issues, but it is also sold for an extremely affordable price. It might not be the best fit for someone who has more money to spare. If you can afford a better system, that would be the better choice.  But for people who are on a budget, this system is pretty good quality.
