Motorola Home Theater System DCP501
Media consolidation in the best possible sense
$129.99 + $5 Shipping and Handling

Quick: what’s the ugliest piece of furniture in anybody’s house? That’s right: the entertainment center (or media cabinet or whatever)! These ungainly, invariably crappy pieces of Frankenfurniture arose to keep up with the kudzuesque proliferation of new entertainment components since the 1980s – not a bad idea, except they rarely keep their sweet promises of total entertainment order, and they always look terrible (even the IKEA ones).

Now you can drag that particle-board nightmare out to the dumpster where it belongs. The Motorola DCP501 home theater brings a DVD/CD/MP3 player, 100 watts x 5-channel amplifier, and an AM/FM stereo receiver into a single slate-grey casing. If your digital cable provider is halfway cool, they’ll let you use this as a digital cable receiver, too – maybe you can offer your now-obsolete entertainment center as a bribe.

Disclaimer: Woot staff doesn’t know much about Digital Cable, but we know enough to not guarantee that this will work in your area, with whatever cable you have (even if that cable makes use of other motorola equipment.) It may be a lot simpler than that in some cases, but we’d recommend seeing enough value in the key dvd+receiver features that you’ll be happy if the digital cable proves inoperable in your area.


WOOTIFCATION™!!! To express opinions or judgments in a WOOTmatic way :slight_smile: Now WOOT has added the bonus of occasionally being able to get MORE than you ordered!!

Now that is cool!!! Although some might find this a reason to complain (You know who you are :wink: ) Nice feature WOOT!!!

Yet another great WOOT. Nice to see them keeping in the everyday man range . May be ugly as they say… but very functional :slight_smile:

Here is the back side of this item…


im poor, too much :frowning:


Super… Now this is my kind of woot!


:shock: Now this is a nice deal, and the price is sweet but a THD 0.9% is high. My current receiver is .04% THD and that’s a pretty clean sound. Some can tell while others are deaf anyway, but when you crank it up, it will be noticeable.


best price on froogle is 270 ish


Would someone with Woot!
please read the RCA 5-CD 100 Watt Executive Microsystem topic page.


sweet woot.
outta my budget though.

** I made first page !!! YAY!**


Nice woot, will have to think about it…


Bummer, another Woot I really don’t need. Well, I’m off to bed!
Nighty night!


first page, but not for me and my college dorm room.


very cool item. sleek.

froogle = $280 so the price is definitely amazing.


I woot, therefore I am. Perhaps someone can tell me: Would the Dell 5.1 speakers hook up to the multiple jacks on this player so that all channels would be used?

In the meantime, I need an air cleaner! Can we get a repeat of the Honeywell from a few weeks ago?


will have to think about this one, anyone know if its any good?


Not for me. Goodnight!
