Mike, Glasgow Gadget lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The sound quality is very good, easily improves on the tv speakers.
The wireless subwoofer is excellent and can be controlled separately from the remote. There are three inputs on the rear two audio and one 3.5mm speaker in, this allows tv in DVD in and digibox if it has speaker audio connections. There are blue indicators on the front of the box to let you know which input is selected, these are unintrusive as they turn off after a few minutes. The bar appears to auto off after a few hours of no connected device attached and switches on with the tv.
I was attracted to the wireless sub and am not disappointed by it, possibly a little overawed by the power of the bass.
Bad points:
The 3.5mm input cable is a little short if headphone out socket is high up on the tv. I bought a longer one for my preference.
The remote is a bit basic - could be a bonus but if tv is highly specced then the tv remote audio is made redundant and this can be a disadvantage.
The wireless sub is great if a little loud for normal tv - play a DVD then the surround effect is intensified. The sub box is a little large if you have space limitations but this possibly indicates the power of the actual speaker.

JEANETTE, Movie fan

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Looks good and is easy to set up.
Bad points:
The speaker does not work properly and it has a continuous thumping sound which is very distracting. Our main problem is we have lost out receipt and can not return the item. A very expensive mistake.
