Tom, Glasgow First Time Reviewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The overall design is very sleek and really complements my samsung 40" tv. The system automatically detects the use of the digital optical input and this makes source selection really easy. Speaker wiring is simple with the aid of colour coded connectors. Sound output, particularly from DVD, is just superb. If you don't have a surround system you really are missing the big screen experience that your large screen TV can provide.
Bad points:
For the sake of a couple of pounds the system should have at least a HDMI connector in the box and ideally a SPDIF digital audio cable.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This machine has optical input and front mounted USB port. Along with HDMI upscaling this make it one of the best featured Home Cinema sytems available. This is the second one I haved purchased (first one alive and well and still perfect)
Bad points:
Must be low on stock now as it's an old model. I was lucky to find this supply!

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Everything is great except for quality of sound - very tinny sounding.
Bad points:
Disappointed with sound - very much a budget sound system. Would recommend for a first time buy of surround sound with intentions to upgrade in a few years.

Matt, Bristol

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is compatible with my V+ box, Playstation 3 and with my TV. It also has Anynet feature which is also featured on my Samsung TV which means i only need one remote to operate both items.
Bad points:
It only has one optical input which means i have to swap cables from PS3 to V+ Box and if i plug it into the back of the TV and watch the V+ Box after a while it runs out of sync.
