Open box means box just opened or damaged.....or the product have been used and selling as refurbished?

Alot of us who ordered from the old thread received brand new boxes (internal components such as remotes, cables, etc we're all still factory sealed).

I ordered 2 and both were brand new

I got it and it's brand new item. I think many other people got it as brand new as well.

I think refurbished means some factory defects fixed or tiny dent that skipped the QC process. Open box means products passed the QC process but the package is opened at retail level and could have missing items (rare but possible)

Thanks OP. Bought one.

ps. anyone know the length of the surround speaker cables?

i also purchased this and everything was pretty much sealed inside the box. the box wasn't in the greatest condition though if that matters.

i do have a question for those that have also purchased this, in regards to connecting the speakers.

the cable splits into two with a wire on each end, which i'm assuming goes into the red and black switch behind the speaker. does it matter which end goes in which color? do i just push the wire in and close the switch on it?

sorry for the noob question, never used those kind of wires before.

Sorry, noob with home sound systems, but can I output sound from my tv via optical cable? I currently have a soundbar, but would like this for my second tv. Basically, I would like to use this as an audio out for watching anything on my tv (nvidia shield, built in netflix on the tv, ps3/ps4, etc), so anything that connects to my tv via hdmi, I'd like to output the audio via optical cable.

Yes, this has an optical cable input. I have it connected to my TV via optical out (Haier 55" also from RFD) and it passes the audio to the Samsung unit fine.

What kind of audio inputs does it have?
Could it be used with a computer? With an Apple TV?

Edit: User manual indicates Aux in (red and white) and optical in.
