Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, good quality, good sound and good value.
Bad points:
All Sony products on the website would benefit from an "easy connection" programme e.g. you type in your Sony product numbers and the programme shows you the best way of connecting the products to get the best perfornance, with the recommended cables.
