martin, Colkirk,Norfolk Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
for a bit of a technophobe this was relatively simple to install. It looks and sounds very impressive.
Bad points:
It may be me but I can only get the sound system to work while playing dvds and cannot get it to work when watching normal tv. If anyone can give me advice on how to get the sound system to work I would be very grateful!

Rob, Darlington, MSG Bargain hunter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Neat and discreet speakers which are easy to position around the room, but this is also their downfall...........
Bad points:
...........because small speakers can't always give the best results!

The biggest problem we have though, is the volume level, from the tv or the digi box, the volume needs to be around position 30, but from a dvd it needs to be less than 10, otherwise the neigbours will complain and the sound distorts, but once you get used to it it's ok, just watch for the kids putting a dvd on early on a Sunday morning!
