Boom!!! This is a 5.1 surround sound system that is just shocking, pure excellence. I got this from the Sony Centre for £300, usual price is around £349.99, but can be found cheaper on amazon.
I got a Samsung 28inch HDTV, but the sound quality is poor, i use my consoles and Sky+HD a lot and even though i am enjoying top picture quality, its just wasn't right without the sound.
One thing that attracted me to this was the 2 HDMI inputs and no DVD player (i had it buit in with my PS3 and Xbox 360).
Upon getting this delivered the box was really big, it comes with the main amplifer, the bass box and a central speaker, 4 stand speakers and a remote.
Installation was very easy just connect the leads to the amplifier which is marked.
Now even though HDMI is suppose to carry digital video and sound, this doesnt, HDMI will only carry pictures. So there are presets you can choose to assign you console/television or anything else. For i the first input i used my PS3 HDMI for picture and Optical for sound. For Sky i connected HDMI to the TV for picture and optical for sound.
No the sound quality is the best i have heard and is very good for the price, you can adjust volume settings of course, but tweak the tone of the treble and bass. Also you can adjust the distance of the sound comming from the speakers. It also have a radio tuner too!
When you are watching a film or playing a game you can definitaly tell that your experience has been enhanced, the bass can really shake the walls and the volume can get on you next door friend annoyed but it is a really good piece of kit. If you want the realisim of yor experience i strongly suggest you get this, as it can it can decode Dolby Pro logic, Dolby Pro Logic II and Dolby Digital.
I have also sucessfully connected this to my laptop on my external sound card using optical lead, so go on get this now.
