Hammer, Derby Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent sound system and has extra features for your ipod, a radio, etc. Can also be used to enhance your gaming experience when you connect your games console to the TV and get the sound blasting out!
Bad points:
Takes a long time to set up and did not appear straightforward to me from reading the manual. I was led to believe that the whole system was wireles, but this is not the case - the main unit simply communicates with the 2 rear speakers wirelessly, but there are wires at the front and the rear! If you get your wires crossed the sound quality is poor, so you'll know if it's not wired up right, because the proper sound quality is ace!
