Confirmed purchaser Music listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It works and sounds good.
Bad points:
Manual is so hard to follow, e.g. to set up speakers read page ??? you get to page ??? and get referred to page ?? and so on. No overview to make it simple to get the idea before complexity sets in.
I am sure there are features I won't use only because the manual is so bad.

Doug, Rochester Movie fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
the "air transmitter" is a nice feature, Also like the digital input which allows you to control a mp3 device via the units remote
Bad points:
the manuals lack of clarity on which should be connected i.e. the manual shows you can connect say a blue ray via hdmi, optical or rgb, it does'nt say which one's can be used together or not
