Good points:
Very good system for the money. Nothing else in this price band. Can't fault the product.
Bad points:
Setting up is not easy as no english instuctions, but you can get them online, so not a real issue. Set up took some time, but most people should be able to do it.

Chris , Holmfirth Movie fan

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Clear audio separation. Love the iPod docking with video throughput. Very simple to use, with clever auto-switching between inputs.
Bad points:
The network updates is misleading, giving a network error repeatedly. I have concluded, after a lot of time spent on my network, that this is because the software is actually up to date. I believe this having read a lot of other people saying this on various message boards, and having checked the software version. The unit should tell me that this is the case, and not make me think there is a network error.
