Sound quality was good, enjoyed it while it lasted, which unfortunately was not very long. Subwoofer went out after 34 days of purchase. The store I purchased from (Kmart) will not take back after 30 days and Ilive's warranty requires my paying the shipping and handling there and back, which will be close to the purchase price. I will steer away from this manufacturer in the future.
My wife and I recently purcased your speaker system and we were reading all the information we could about them looking for a way to turn off (or at least down) the obnoxiously bright blue lights that illuminate the entire room and our naked bodies. Making us appear as we are Avatars from Pandora. Our kids walked in the other night and seriouly thought we were aliens. Even our clearly enunciated usually easily recognizable voices were misconstrued due to our blue-ish hue. And we weren't even naked that time. We always keep the door locked when we are naked anyway.
So, can someone *please* tell me how to eliminate the lights from their usually full functiin 24-7 operation? Or perhaps even if there is some sort of hidden combinatiin hack that turns these things. Ya know? How they have code for cars where if you press the brake and turn the stereo to a certain channel while turning the steering wheel in a certain direction while hane the hazard lights are on and you turn on the ac and that annoying alarm (that does NOT have blue lights but is still annoying) thats indicates my sest belt is not engaged. Which I HATE seatbelts. My great aunt almost died from one in the mid 70's and ever since then, my entire family agrees that seat belts are bullshit. And we all unamiously refuse to wear them. Sooo those codes are great. Have your technicians prepared this sort of code to disengage these annoying blue lights.
I realize that everyone seems to enjoy these lights as a premier feature of the speaker system unit, but we beg to differ. We feel that they are distracting. My wife uses those fabric placemats from the kitchen table to often cover them. I came home the other evening and she had them FACING the front picture window with the shades drawn tightly in behind them. Just BLASTING bight blue police car type lights out into our front yard. What's next??? We JUST bought these 3 days ago. Someone (!!!!!) Please help. We LOVE the sound and enjoy bluetooth like features whatever that's supposed to refer to, I'm not keen to electronics perse' but I do know that I don't like blue nights now. I used to they seeemed soothing and relaxing before. Now I just feel like I'm going to be arrested all the time, for no reason, because I'm not driving right now, so how could (would they???) ever know if I was wearing my seatbelt or not when they would show up at my front door??? They couldn't possibly... there is NO WAY.
But back to these speakers. What"s with the blue lights? My wife's car's dash light change on there own to less annoying of blues and pinks and golden hues of orange and yellow. And while yes, there is blue involved, its less commanding than say your speaker system's options of only one tone of INTERSTATE HIGHWAY CRUISER PARTROL VEHICLE. Which is starting to freak me out.
I have only had this speaker for 2 months and the damn thing won't come on any more.
The LCD display is just flashing, no lonher shows the time. I can't even take it back to FYE because it's past 30 days. Essentially it is $80 wasted
Got it for my wife as a Christmas gift. Mounted easily. Turned on and worked he first few days, then stopped working. I unplugged and plugged back in and it worked fine for another couple weeks. It's now Jan 22 and the radio has stopped working completly. Tried everything. No luck. Can't return because over 30 days. And no info on a warranty??
I bought the item second hand so it didnt come with the wall mount :( but I have to say it is a Really Good sound bar its loud easy to use and the satellite speakers are WIRELESS wow it is great and you can hook up a subwoofer! I have seen other producys that are very similar for WAY more than this price so if you want a good soundbar with surround sound and wireless speakers and who doesnt this is it! The only thing I can say thats bad is the soundbar sounds a little like it has an echo but ive only had it for a day so maybe i can mess around with some settings or maybe its the position i have it in my living room idk. Also woth the subwoofer I can feel it rumble my upstairs floor WOW!
We received this item as a wedding gift from a family member in May of 2016. At the end of November, the sound bar suddenly stopped working. After getting contact with the manufacturer, I followed all the necessary steps to return the item as it was defective. I shipped the item through UPS as instructed (ground shipping) and it cost me $47.00. I contacted several supervisors through the manufacturer looking into a refund for my shipping costs. No one ever got back to me, and finally after weeks of calling and getting status updates, today, a supervisor tells me, that it's policy for the customer to pay one-way shipping and they won't refund my money. I was never informed that I was going to have to pay shipping, nor be refunded my shipping. The supervisor proceeded to tell me that they had made exceptions on my behalf. They said I had no receipt (which they had a proof of purchase on file after I sent it to them and that I was out of warranty.) The supervisor told me that warranty is a year, so I was clearly far less than a year, so no exceptions had been made on my behalf. He kept repeating to me that it was their policy for customers to pay one-way shipping. I informed him that this baits your customers because if they want their DEFECTIVE item replaced, they have to pay for shipping and that it's horrible customer service. I would not recommend using the manufacturer (Digital Products International) to anyone as their customer service is terrible and they trap customers with false lies and crappy products.
