Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up and excellent sound - I've got a good quality digital optical cable coming from my TV, which is definitely worth investing in.
Bad points:
It doesn't fit on my stand and will require wall mounting. I also found that navigating the i-Pod menu is a real pain.

Looks - black, glossy finish.
Ease of use (with remote).
Really like the aynet+ even works with sky control

Touch buttons on the player are difficult to see and use.
The upright design may make it a bit obtrusive and unsuitable for some audio stacks and racks.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I love the way it looks and sounds. Listening to music via ipod is a brilliant feature.
Bad points:
ipod menu on tv screen could make it easier to pick songs. I have many songs and it takes a while to get to the latter end of the alphabet! Wouldn't stop me purchasing this system though.
