Most helpful reviews

Andy, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Value For Money - Highly rated speakers and AV unit at a very reduced price
Easy To Setup - Provided you know roughly what you are doing.
Compatability - Has plenty of inputs and outputs to run pretty much everything you would ever need at once in 7.1 if you want it.
When I played music from a PC through it, the surround sound made a superb difference.
Loud enough to shake your house without being distorted.
Bad points:
The manual for the AV unit can be a bit confusing as it handles each available function for 2 separate Onkyo models at the same time.

The Tannoy speakers don't show in the manual that you really need a sub woofer cable that is not included in the box, if you didn't know you would need one to begin with.
