Jose, Barnstaple Gizmo

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
GREAT SOUND {(SPEAKER DEPENDANT AS I'M RUNNING A PAIR OF SS - F400 AS FRONT SPEAKERS)}

REASONABLE AMOUNT OF CONNECTIONS FOR MOST HOUSE EQUIPMENT LEAVING A FEW CONNECTIONS SPARE.

STRAIGHT FORWARD TO USE ONCE SET UP RIGHT.
Bad points:
MENU SYSTEM CAN TAKE A BIT TO GET USED TO, BUT NOT MUCH DIFFERENT THAN THE MENUS FOUND ON MOST ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT THESE DAYS.

Peter, Sheffield Movie fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Just simple, looks great does the job. perfect if you have a bravia tv an Bluray
Bad points:
the menu and the gui version of the menu could do with being a little sharper and simpler. would benefit from the xcross media bar. but for the price a small sacrifice

David, Norwich. UK

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up, easy to use. Good sound for the price. Looks good. Integrates well with other Sony products.
Bad points:
Manual is written in Chinglish, very basic and difficult to follow. On screen (TV) menu system would help with set-up no end. Posts for speaker connection are a bit difficult to get at, though this is not a problem if using banana plugs
