Garry, Derbyshire Gadget lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to set up, all connectors colour coded, auto set up using included microphone produced good results straight away. Really brings Blueray and sky HD to life.
Bad points:
Can't really think of any.... Except if you are watching a dvd and go to the setup screen, the film reverts back to the beginning (only an issue when first changing set up) eg changing to different picture res.

Steve, Movie fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sound is amazing - on a par with the far more expensive systems. Plenty of cable for the rear speakers also.
Bad points:
No 3D as yet ... although I'm sure a firmware update in the future will sort that out.

Julian, Kirton Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A very neat and stylish product that delivers a fantastic surround sound experience coupled with vibrant picture quality. The four tall boy speakers make positioning easy. Being not very technically minded I found that, with careful reading, all was explained in the instruction manual helping me to enjoy both music and films to the fullest.
Bad points:
It did take time and effort to connect to the internet. I had to delve into areas of my computer that I was totally unfimiliar with. But it was a learning experience and I got there in the end.

Ed, Bargain hunter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bass is good, speakers are clear. The height stance is tall, centre speaker is amazing. Blu ray player is fast loading. Overall sound is impressive. Nice long cables for rear hook up. Superb audio vs price. Blu ray picture is very nice. And appealing set up for the eye and ear.
Bad points:
The screws supplied are soft terrible quality. Get replacement ones before you put your stands together.
Lack of many configuration settings for speakers Example: no setting for delay times for left/right rear left right (to set up distance eg a truck passes by: co-ordinating the passing sound from left to rright centre speaker to match on screen happenings. Speaker cables supplied could be of better overall quality and are as standard with cheaper systems but replacements make sound even better.
