Jim, Barrow Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The ARC (Audio Return Channel) HDMI input works great with a newish TV which has an ARC HDMI connector. You'll need a full spec HDMI cable and the soundbar effectively becomes an extension of your TV. The TVs volume control works with the soundbar and the TV automatically switches its inbuilt speaker off when the soundbar is on. Sound is great especially on console games where it adds a new dimension to gameplay with deep bass from the subwoofer. Bluetooth is good for streaming music from a tablet or mobile. Radio good as well.
Bad points:
Its not a surround sound system but its much better than TV speakers.

Pete, Birmingham Music listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Packaging was very good, all cardboard, easy to dispose of.
The manual is all in English and well written.
All connections worked and interacted well.
The DAB radio tuned itself and is very clear.
The unit looks quite high tech and attractive.
Bluetooth was great from my Ipad and the ARC feature was good for inputting from my camera.
The alarm function is easy to use although the first time I was woken by full volume at 3.00 AM!
Bad points:
The sockets for the connecting leads are all grouped in a recess this makes them fiddly and difficult to identify.
The remote is very functional but also very small and difficult to read.
The sub woofer is stylish but as you have to put your fingers underneath to lift, it would be very easy to damage the speaker with your fingernails.
If you use the wall mount brackets to fit under a wall-mounted TV it would be nice to be able to run the cables through the middle of the bar or behind it rather round the unit which is the only option.

Barney, East Grinstead Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great sound - a real rumble around the living room when watching a film or listening to bass-heavy music. Nice DAB feature too and iPod or phone dock for music.
Bad points:
A little too big - dwarfs my TV. Would like to see same performance in a smaller package.

Matthew, Leeds Gadget lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The surround sound is excellent, and the ability to have bluetooth connection makes it ideal for connecting smart phones, and tablets. Wireless connection of sub woofer is also helpful as no extra wires about the house. Really amazing when playing games through console.
Bad points:
The DAB feature doesn't seem to be needed as most TV's have digital radio channels already available via Freeview, or internet radio via smart devices.
