Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent sound, dynamic range, easy setup. Good connectivity.
Bad points:
Remote a little difficult to get use to. Folder system also confusing. Random (shuffle) play doesn't work very well with MP3s - tends to play a small selection over and over again - quite annoying as i like to stick a USB in with best part of 1000 songs and listen to them randomly.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
sound quality, particularly good separation leading to great stereo.small and compact unit "has everything you need under one roof"..usb connection for mp3 player..simple to use.
Bad points:
No major bad points,however, was a bit dissapointed in the bulky rear which extends further out than most units.
This unfortunately means that cosmetically the units appearance suffers a little when situated as a freestanding unit.

Dennis, Leek, Staffordshire Enjoy classical and jazz

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
With Wharfedale Diamond 9 series speakers, the sound quality is very good, design neat, performance impressive and for the modest price paid, there can be few if any offering better value. I can confidently recommend the Onkyo system - and the Wharfedale speakers..
Bad points:
There are no bad points.
