When i first saw the system it immediately ticked one box of needing very little space - each of the 5 surround sound speakers fit neatly into the palm of your hand. You may be hard pushed to believe that such little speakers can make much of a noise, but believe me they can. Lets just say one way to get the staff at Comet's attention is accidently starting up this machine on full whack. The sound quality of these tiny speakers is fantastic, and even better they will fit in absolutely anywhere. You'll hardly even notice that they are there and quite often you may have your friends jumping from their seats as an explosion goes off behind them if they've not been forewarned. The control box is fairly neat too, with a touch sensitive control panel on top giving it a stylish modern feel, befitting the latest in television technology this machine has been bought to accompany - and when teamed with a sony T.V. it has a number of other nifty features. The one complaint i would raise with this set is that the subwoofer must be connected to the control box via a fairly short cable meaning the two must be in close proximity to each other which can be a nuisance. All-in-all a great audio solution befitting any truly teched up room.
