Good: Nice design, Great picture quality, MCACC setup is wonderful
Bad: No mid range, pricey, to long to load discs, bad remote
Comment: So I got this system a month a go and sent it back straight away. Here is the good side, nice image quality, beautiful style, powerful bass, good range of inputs, customizable sound (to an extent). Now this is why I gave this system a 5/10, it is because there is no mid-range in the sound whatsoever, when I listen to music, there are some pieces of music I can't hear because of the lack of a mid range, the vocals are extremely recessed behind all the other instruments and there is not really much sonic punch, it just feels a little flat in general. Some people will love this system, If this system was £900 or £1000, I would give it an 8/10 but if you are paying this much for a system, you should expect better sound quality. My second problem is the remote, it really is hard to figure out, it is a learning curve and people who are not used to technology will struggle. And my last problem is the Blu-Ray player, it takes extremely long to load discs, I am not exaggerating, it gets annoying over a period of time. Overall this system is not great but not terrible, it is just average, nothing more!
