I would have to disagree. The system doesn't suck, I find it to be exactly what I paid for. It's not going to be concert quality and nowhere does it state it will be. For a stock system, it is pretty well off considering the price of it. It will definitely "suck" if you expect it to be audiophile quality. If you want that, don't be dumb and order the system that clearly isn't what you are looking for.
