Allan, Motherwell Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
- the design and looks are good
- Realy comes into its own watching bluray disks
-
Bad points:
- This is a good upgrade to boost the sound of the plasma panel speakers. However its not a full surround system.
- Display is on the sub woofer. It would be better on screen.
- DO NOT LOOSE ANY OF THE CABLES, AS I DID. ONE BASIC CABLE FOT THIS SYSTEM COST ME ONE HUNDERD POUNDS. AND I WAS QUOTED ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FROM A DIFFERENT STORE.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very nice crisp sound. My first test was to watching the opening car chase in the James Bond file "Quantum of Solace". The sound of glass fragments shattering is awesome and the bass is very good.

Intergration with the 40" t.v. (same retailer) is great.

The fact that the processing unit and sub woofer is an all-one box is very convenient.

Automatically switches off the t.v. speaker.
Bad points:
I think the sound should be more powerful. Sometimes I watch a film at the limit or very close to. I'd like an extra few levels of wattage.

The sound bar itself is not tailored made for the t.v. It fits 40" and 46" which means on my 40", the bar sticks out either side an inch or two. Ideally it would be the same width.

The gap between the bottom of the t.v. and the top of the sound bar is too wide and partially ruins the asthetics.

I don't believe this should be marketed as a surround sound system - I run this in a square room with the doors closed and there is not much evidence at all of real surround sound. It's just loud, plain and simple. It should be marketed as a very good quality sound system which is compact and is a good loud upgrade to the t.v.

Ian, Northampton Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up. The sound quality is a huge improvement on what one gets from the TV. Bass is excellent.
Bad points:
The remote controller takes some getting used to when using Blue Ray, TV and radio tuner.

Availability of the system seems limited.

John, Hertfordshire Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent package which benefits from simple uncluttered connectivity. I've had full surround systems in the past but the quality of sound from this is very good and belies the fact that the output is from one speaker bar + sub. Although full 5.1 effects are not obtainable the overall quality is very good.

Instructions on set up excellent and it even comes with an optical cable so that you can get pro-logic from Satellite receiver. Apparently Sky do not (or cannot) send pro-logic via HDMI. Amp/Sub unit fully labelled so a five year old could connect it
Bad points:
Shame it doesn't some with HDMI leads for full connectivity out of the box but I suppose everyone to their own when it comes to how much they want to pay for quality of leads.
