"Really nice sounding feature rich product purchased to go with my samsung 6800 TV. However a few installation niggles - the wallmounting holes are tiny and its difficult to get suitable mount, the cable grips on the back of the system are flush so if you but the speakers on the wall these is no where for the cable to protrude from the back. My last system had little 2mm lugs on the 4 corners to set it just off the wall which over came this"
Pros: nice quality
Cons: installation
I would recommend this to a friend!

"I bought this today as it had all the specs I wanted. The set up 'seemed' to be easy, only for when I was connecting up the speakers I found that only 3 of the speakers worked. I messed around with the settings and I had to opt for the 'simple setup' which lessens the sound in order to get 5 of the 6 speakers to work, and I use the word work loosely. I found if the speakers are moved or tilted even slightly, the sound cuts out and can only be fixed by fiddling around with the wires at the back even though the wires were in correctly. Even still the speakers were cutting out by them selves and I found myself walking around the room to each speaker to see which was working. I'm not sure if this is a design flaw or I was just unlucky, but this is the main reason I'm returning the player.
When I got the speakers working, only 5 out of 6 speakers would work when playing a CD or playing music via bluetooth, however when I put in a DVD all the speakers worked. When the speakers worked the sound was great but while watching a film the music was far louder than the speaking, which means it's not ideal if you're watching a film and someone is in bed as you can hear the music, but not the voices. I also found when watching a DVD the picture and the sound didn't sync up - luckily there was a setting to fix that.
The bluetooth worked well with my phone and I could get about 20 feet away from the player before it lost connection, though when I was connecting the bluetooth I found I had to try a couple of times before it would actually connect - and that has to be done every time you want to play music from your phone, you have to reconnect to the bluetooth again, which is pretty annoying.
Onto settings - there are ALOT of them, especially for the speaker and unless you know alot about speakers, it's like talking another language. I'm sure I could of got alot more from the speakers if I knew what the setting meant.
As for the design, it's a really good looking unit but on the front there is a flap for a usb port that isn't flush with the unit and hang out quite unattractivly.
Another downside is it only has one HDMI port.
All in all, if all of the above doesn't bother you, the unit is good. It has great sound if you can get the speakers to work properly and it has some great features. Personally I don't have the patience.
"
Pros: good quality sound, long speaker cables
Cons: Did not meet expectations, poor quality speakers, only one hdmi, sound and picture do not sync
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
