Confirmed purchaser Audio quality my priority

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fabulous sound quality and ability to obtain a very reasonable surround sound from stereo sources. Upsampling via the HDMI connections for CD is very good. Ability to reduce the cabling for DVDA/SACD via the HDMI connections is goodness. Lack of inbuilt decoders for latest Blu-ray audio format seen as a a good point as this reduces complexity and cost.
Bad points:
Two HDMI connections a potential drawback, as is inability to utilise OSD functions via HDMI. Lack of temporary speaker trim settings.

Matt, HANTS Classical music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Such an improvement on my original setup for music (flac files) and 5.1 is excellent. I originally had a yamaha home cinema amp which had a multitude of sound settings but playing music was not good.

Eugenio, Torino (Italy) Classical music lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
sound quality
easy to use and to set up
you pay only for what you really need (provided that audio quality is your main concern)
clever design of the audio function (multichannel LPCM handling, so avoiding ever changing audio code)
reasonable price
Bad points:
remote control rather primitive (a universal multi-brand would be appropariate)
LFE signal level too low (a +3db is needed to avoid auto switch-off of the sub)

Henri , Kuopio/Finland Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sound quality is very good indeed. Very spacious and delicate. Audiolab never sounds tiring and has a special kind of insight to the music.
Bad points:
The sound is not as sharp as in some other rivalling products, but all the detail is still there.
