Definitely a great price, but what a totally unusable shape it is to accommodate? Voted hot for price.


only 1 hdmi i think but no optical but a good price

cheap was looking at this on offer at philips nus partners reduced to £189

Yes but it looks like one of those stools on wheels people used to have to reach high shelves in hardware shops. I like the spec (and price) but it would have to go under my telly; the buttons are on the top which means under a glass shelf, and docking would be impossible.

Not everyone can put it on a handy bench shelf under their flat screen (with no exposed cables but it is connected!!!) like the video couple. I've never seen such a thing in my life!

I don't want to sound negative but it's all a bit poorly thought out in my view?

Subwoofer on a shelf would be a bad idea anyway, but i can't say i rate this very highly. Sure, it looks quite cool, but it has no optical input, so worthless as a speaker system for a blu-ray or gaming console. doesn't provide surround sound, so will be less than satisfying for movie fans. It has an HDMI output, but it is only useful for the unit's own upscaled DVD playback (doesn't support H.264 by the looks of things), 50W is a rather uninspiring power for a subwoofer, let alone when you add in tweeters and woofers as well.

All seems a little over priced for what it is. Shell out another 50 sheets for one of the low end Samsung all-in-one systems, and you get a massive difference in capability.

Cheers for that, can you point me in the direction of a Samsung one?


thats the kind of thing i'd be thinking about for a 1 box solution - but personally I have a Marantz amp, seperate floorstanding speakers, etc etc.

And if you have a bluetooth mp3 player/use your mobile for music, it might be worth upgrading to the TZ325R (another £40ish), but other than BT and slightly more powerful speakers, i don't think the higher end model is that much better.
