Owned - 2 weeks This is a 2 week review..... I will add more detail later I purchased this because we had just redecorated our living room and I didn't want it swamped by speakers in every corner, that were in place before. I was a little concerned at first because out living room is not a normal shape and the TV is not placed in the centre of the room. Even with our original 5.1 system we had trouble finding a sweet spot for the full surround effect. Well I needn't have worried. The auto set up is quick and easy and takes everything into the room into account. (You even have to leave the room - in case you affect the reading). A load of weird noises come from behind closed doors and then after about 3 minutes the system is set up. On initial start up the bass is deep, powerful and sweeping. The system comes with a demo DVD to set out all the settings and I was amazed just how well and defined the surround system sounded. Birds were heard tweeting in all corners of the room, and sound was rich and powerful (and I only had the volume on 20 /100!!) Then there is the fine tuning.... a gadget geeks dream... The various music modes also mean that this is a fully functional sound system as well as a home cinema system. There is a sweet spot, but much bigger than in my previous system. I also had to place my speaker lower down that I would have liked, (almost at floor level), this doesn't seem to affect the overall surround effect much. Bad Points Two small things If you are a gadget geek you will be fine tuning for weeks !!!!!!!! Remote looks a bit plasticy... shame when you pay so much !!
