Stephen, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland New to home cinema

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to setup - no real need to look at the instructions apart from to see where exactly to place each speaker in the room. On-screen menu easy enough to follow. Sound quality and volume is excellent, even at the higher end of the scale.
Bad points:
I have no real bad points to highlight with this product, apart from I suppose a label stuck to the top of the DVD player with glue, which if removed I know will be a mess, so I just left it there (the label is the entire width of the player but is not that annoying).

Good points:
A lot of bang from a small neat box. Aslo it plays any cd derived format. Good cable lenghs. Other small unlisted useful features such as it seems to remember not only where you were the last time you listened to a cd but also what surround mode you used and automaticaly reverts to it. neat.

Dave, York

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic upgrade for your tv. Small speakers that give a big sound. Sound volume goes up to 40 but I usually have the voulme on 6 but if I know the neighbours are out and I want to rock the room I have gone up to 14!. Adds that extra exprerience when watching Movies, listening to music, playing games and normal tv too. It has just enough inputs, and the usb2 input plays most video formats including divx & windows media which I personaly found very handy. it also supports up to 300 folders and 648 files if you have the space on your flash memory stick. Great picture & sound with useful features for price.
Bad points:
No real problems but if your picky the rear speaker cables could of been just a little longer. I had to cut and join them as they were just too short for my average sized longe. Mind you I have mounted the rear speakers near the ceiling in the rear corners of the room. Also unless I am mistaken the surround type by default is "party" out of a choice of party/stereo/dolbyplI and you have to change it from that (if req'd) when changing inputs .
