Good: Awesome sound
Bad: Nothing yet!
Comment: I just bought and installed this yesterday. The first and most striking thing as you remove it from the large box, is the substantial feel of the components. They feel heavy, solid and well built with a beautiful finish, especially the solid brushed aluminium front to the main unit.
The unit is very easy to set up without having to resort to the extreme measure of reading the (large) instruction manual first and it takes less than half an hour.
Once it clicks into life, the sound is truly beautiful. There is a surprising amount of customisation possible through the 'Help' menus. There is ample inputs at the back for a Sky+ and Apple Express for iTunes streaming and DAB radio.
The iPod connectivity is a great bonus as well. I previously had a 5 speaker full surround system and I have moved to this 2 speaker system, but I was pleasantly surprised with the spacious Dolby virtual surround sound, although you don't get the actual sound of a villain's footsteps behind your left ear in a movie!
Overall, although it is quite pricey, you get what you pay for - fantastic build quality, simple user interface and audiophile sound quality.
