Noel, Chertsey Retired techie

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Tiny speakers for the power, of course the SW provides the base oomph and is out of sight. Great to have a HiFi system again for CDs. Compatible (via simple coax link) with my Sony hard drive + DVD writer + Freetext decoder. I use the optical output from my Viera Freesat TV; BBC HD outputs 5.1
Bad points:
None as such but it does take a while to sort out the source when switching functions. It would be nice to program one volume control so that all three remotes are not required.

Ike, East Sussex Loudness is your friend.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great sound especially the bass effects in Dolby Digital surround sound. The HDMI link works beatifully with all our input devices eg HDDVD, Blue Ray and switches automatically to the best sound option; even turning off the TV volume. The TV remote can be customised to work with all the other devices and considering its a Panasonic remote it appears to communicate with other makes without any problems.
Bad points:
No mp3 player port or USB connection which would make it even more versatile for music lovers who want a quadraphonic sound effect like myself.
No on-screen menues to ease you through the (sometimes fustrating) set up which I believe is standard on most home entertainment devices these days.
