Rated 5 out of 5Â 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.

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 1 out of 5 WORST PRODUCT EVER!!!
Purchased this product on 11/29/2014 connected it up on 11/30/2014 and only one satellite works. The speaker works very well and installs exactly as described in the instructions. The rest of the system, however, is completely worthless. There is only 2 to 3 functions through one satellite, the other 2 satellites never worked out of the box. I read the instructions completely prior to installation, then reread them thinking i missed something. After reading the instruction book 4 to 5 times I gave up. Good luck to who ever buys this product. The only reason for a 1 star rating is that there is no 0 star rating.

spent 200 for the starter and 2 satellite sets only to find out it doesnt really work like it shows Qoute from pg 11 "Your lighted items will not follow the music beat exactly" It has good sound but I had higher expectations having watched the promo. Directions have to be followed VERY carefully otherwise this will not work. Had purchased a less expensive product at walmart e few years back much better than this
