Zakir, London Movie fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Pack a lot of punch for the size, the subwoofer handles the LFE amazingly well. Placement of speakers should not be a problem due to their size and also the inclusion of the adjustable brackets and straight to wall brackets.
Bad points:
Subwoofer has the speaker pointing towards the bottom of the unit without any kind of fascia or cover. This can be scary if picking up the unit to clean the floor etc. Due to the positioning of the speaker connectors on the satellite speakers, make sure you use thin strand speaker wire otherwise it will be difficult to manipulate through the back.

Neil, Sittingbourne Movie fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent sound from such small speakers, easy to set up very clear sound and fantastic bass that I have had to turn down to stop the sofa from shaking.
Bad points:
There is little to set up but there are a few buttons and knobs on the unit and the instrucitons do not really tell you what they are for. I am sure if you are into AV it would be obvious but this is my first set up.

Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Very pleased with the sound from these speakers. However I did have to return the first package I received because the subwoofer emitted a high pitched noise intermittently. No problem to date with the replacement
