Purchased this system based on hours of research.Have to say it lived up to all the recommendations.Superb build quality and sound is unbelievable from such a small set of speakers.Only downside albeit a small one was the cable connections to the speakers.Quite fiddly to install ,but once past this, the enjoyment given from this system is immense.Stylish design that looks great with a large TV.Quality of DVD Upscaling is great as well.Is on the more expensive side, but if you are a Film Buff it is certainly worth a serious consideration for purchase.
Yes it takes time and patience to setup the speakers, and I had a small issue with the back sub which was fixed by using Sony's hdmi cable (included) rather than my own (which had been causing interference). But once it had been setup and tuned using the microphone - WOW!! this was awesome, music quality is just incredible. MTVN HD channel though Sky HD makes you feel like you are there at the big gigs.
Had this for a few weeks now and I am well impressed. Watched District 9 the other day and the quality of the sound was awesome, I know it is expensive but I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for (play are tyhe cheapest by far by the way). If the their is one downside it was the setup, I think it was somewhere along the lines of buidling the Large Hadron Collider. I am not the most patient of people but I stuck with it and with the help of the missus got there in the end. Well worth it though, neat and tidy and looks and sound great. Highly recommended.
This expensive system is very impressive. It arrives in a large heavy box and you immediately see why it is so expensive - everything is built to a high quality. It comes with options to stand mount (as shown in the picture), desktop stand mount or wall mount the speakers, with heavy fittings for each option in the box! Everything is colour coded so the set up is logical, with clear instructions, but some components are very small (those speakers really are tiny, like long thumbs) so it is a little fiddly, especially the insertion of speaker cable into the ends of the speakers. S-air pairing (wireless front to rear) worked perfectly (despite a few problems reported in online forums) and the large sound is amazing for such tiny speakers. The system is easy to control, using the same XMB interface as the PS3, so immediately familiar to many. It rememebers settings well and auto switches to the last one used. I leave it set for my Sky HD so it automatically switches to that input and my chosen surround mode (there are many). The sound is so much better than it was from the TV. I'd absolutely recommend this product, though it is very pricey!
