Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Kevin Great item for the money
I bought this set right after thanksgiving. We downloaded 35 Christmas songs in MP# format as it stated. I put those in a mini sd card and in it went. Just to make sure it worked i plugged in 9 different sets of lights into each plus and turned it on. With the transmitter right next to the speaker as indicated in the directions and u tube videos i watched , they all worked perfectly. I currently have 35000 yes 35000 LED bulbs on this system. I have bought another expansion pack to try next year as id like my blow molds on it as well. I don't know what the issue is with some of these reviews but if the unit doesn't work swap it out. If it does in fact work and you cant figure out how to use it. Google this on u tube as i did to make sure i had it set up right. One day i will buy the light o Rama controller sets. Until then,this will do just fine.Nothing like seeing 20 cars out front of your house at a time watching your light show.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by AceTheDog Does What It Is Advertised To Do
Pros: Easy to read instructions, all the steps worked. Very easy to set up. Very versatile. Multiple inputs for the music that YOU want to listen to, not something that is pre-programmed or just sounds sh!tty. And because of the tailored music, you could use this equipment for any holiday/celebration/party/whatever. Possibilities are not limited. Anything that makes noise can be picked up by the base controller, depending on volume and proximity. If you get close and talk to or at the base controller, you will get a lighted response. 16 different programmed functions possible, not including the musical response. We purchased three extra satellite controllers. The base controller and all six of the satellite controllers worked right out of the box while testing in the garage with single 100 count LED light strands, for a grand total of 900 lights in a standard garage. Equipment is rated at 420 watts max per satellite receiver and base controller (that's 140 watts per each of the three outlets on the base controller). Each 100 bulb strand I have is 20.5 feet long and rated at 7.2 watts. Theoretically, if I had the time and money, it would be possible to connect 58 strands per controller or receiver and be within the technical specifications with strands stretched 1,160 feet or almost four football fields in linear length. Please check my math but those numbers sound ridiculously more than what I need.
Cons: Made in China. No number or website to contact with problems or questions. The Q&A section in the instruction pamphlet is very limited in scope and range. Synchronization is just a tad bit off which is due to the way the base controller picks up the "beat" of the music. When the lights do come on, they pulse/flash/strobe even for the split second they are on. Coming on solid would not make me nauseous like the designed output currently does.
Locally, Home Depot was the only store we could find this product, or anything even similar. Lowe's and BJ's did not carry a programmed system at all.
Overall, it's above average but definitely not the kind you'd see on YouTube basically because you're not spending as much. But, it will probably either make your neighbors love you or hate you. So, good luck, have fun and (I can't believe I'm saying this so early) Merry Christmas!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Tommy worked just fine
Bought on December 1st hooked it up and ran all season with no problems, music and light sync is off just slightly but not so much you really couldnt tell, you really have to pay attention to instructions the main base (the one with the three plugs) has to be within a foot of the front of the speaker box to get the three satellite bases to work if it is more than a foot away the three satellite boxes wont work. When installed correctly it works very nice. The family really enjoyed it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by skinner6695 Easy light display!
I converted my semi large display of Halloween lights to this system with an expansion pack. I just plugged in the base near where the speaker would be. Everything can be inline to existing lights, but the speaker needs constant power and cannot be attached to the base or receivers. No buttons to sync on the receivers either, they just worked! I had no problem going over 50 ft from the base to a receiver and using the handheld remote.
I was able to pair my android phone via Bluetooth and stream YouTube audio easily, but couldn't get the music sensor with speaker working. I had the base next to the speaker within 1 ft as the manual says.
Remote is quick to change all the lights and plenty of built-in functions for everyone to enjoy.
