    I've not heard it but can't really argue with the price. Might be worth saving for something a bit better though. £150 will get you a Pioneer 301 which is a nice small receiver and with a matching Pionner dvd player for £80 would be a very good system for the cash. At £200 the quality goes up a lot and you can get entry level receivers from Yamaha and Denon or even the highly rated Sony 790 for about £230. Just search back through the forum and buy a couple of magazines with buying guides and you'll get a good idea.

    £99 thats a bargain! but depends on the total system budget and what you need, what you have and if they have any stock?
