Great dynamic range particuarly when pure direct button is pressed. Tone is slightly on the warm side but tone controls are available to set your own preferences. I purchased at a discounted price making it amazing value for money.

Good points:
Nice, powerful sound, plenty of features and ample connectivity, Fully featured remote, Fantastic value for money.
Bad points:
Sound is a little 'brighter' than I'm used to - BUT it is new and coupled with new floorstanders, so may well be the speakers
