Rael, Surrey

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This system looks simply stunning. It really oozes a sense of quality and style. And that's before you turn it on! The quality of the sound is outstanding, and the depth is incredible, especially considering the relatively slim sub box. The sound options are very clever indeed...I particularly like the "live" option which manages, somehow, to make them sound like you're listening to them actually on stage...it is incredibly realistic.
Bad points:
The wires for the speakers are pretty thin, and as such I found it a right fiddle putting them in the back of the unit - but once set up this isn't a problem. Despite having an LG TV, the simplink (LG's little system of connecting 2 or more products) does not kick in when using the digital optical out (so you can liten to the sound from a TV channel)...instead, unless you turn the TV right down, you get an annoying ech effect. The only other thing is the size of the bases to the speakers are really rather large, and as such I have struggled to fit them either side of my TV due to limited space. But don't let these minor points put you off an amazing system!

Confirmed purchaser Sound Engineer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looks very nice and stylish - great sound for the cost.
Bad points:
Would have liked a USB port at the rear of the machine for music storage. USB only recognises 999 tracks and you do need to be clever how you store music in the folders as it only recognises the first four folders. But this is a cinema system not a music system so maybe expect a little too much from the music side. Other than that very pleased with the overall use and sound. Great that it comes with 4 speakers.
