A fantastic stereo unit, excellent features and functionality. Sound amplification and video upscaling are top grade.

1) its a big box! - make sure you have enough room for it.
2) the manual+ease of use are marked down because its complicated to set up and utilise all its functions purely as it has so many!.

Mark, Manchester Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Absolutely superb digital surround from films. Solid and precise. control through my TV remote when connected via HDMI. Finding all the functions on the remote control and setting the system up was tricky at first, but easy to use once you get going. There is also a handy CD ROM to walk you through the set up process.
Bad points:
Treble can be a little bright when listening to music. Had to tweak the bass settings a bit, but a minor gripe, and probably down to personal preference. Mine did not come with any wireless functionality, and requires a separate dongle. Disappointing at this price.
