I have one of these, paid £399 a couple of weeks ago. An excellent soundbase with superb sound.

Amazon's usual price is around £375 which was still cheap! Was torn between one of these and the much more pricey Yamaha YSP-2500, what you gained with one you lost with the other and visa versa but at this price the buy button was finally struck...

I wanted something I could plug an old Marantz CD player into and this Siny really does hit the spot. The Bluetooth streaming is out of this world too so was an easy choice for me over the Yamaha.

Sony even!

Good to see the good old HotUKdeals cold voters are out in strength because this isn't cheap to buy but yet impossible to find cheaper anywhere else atm.

Seems around £55 off an already cheap price for what it is isn't enough for some folk....

Whilst this is the cheapest I have seen it and I have given heat, I still can't get my head around the fact that this is a 2.1 speaker system for £321.99! It's also a bit ambiguous - is it 350W RMS or PMPO?

It isn't 'just' a 2.1ch speaker system tho, its far more advanced with its connections than that, its a full blown connected device both in and out - dare say that had t being badged Sonos or Bose then nobody would crib the price despite this seemingly sounding better than either companies equivalents.

Power wise difficult to say tho most reviews say it is a floor shaker so I'd air more towards RMS.

have been thinking about the canton dm 75 for £299 but the lack of hdmi put me off. for a few quid extra have just bought this instead. very happy.

I tried the ht-xt1 some time ago and was very disappointed. Does anyone know if this is much of an improvement considering the price hike?

Reading the reviews, absolutely! Been watching this for a couple of months n the only thing negative I've seen is sound sync sometimes went astray but the unit has had a couple of firmware updates since that was reported it seems

I never said "just" I am aware it does a lot more...
I'm saving up for a something that does HDMI PiP & at least 5.1
FYI Richer sounds have these in stock for £399 (with a £50 voucher for some music)

Its here n all set up and have to say for the money even at current selling price it is worth it! The balance between forward drivers and the subs is the best I've heard from these sort of things, neither over power the other and complement each other perfectly. I honestly can't believe the sound that it produces for the size and shape, it seems so wrong looking at it tho the weight of the thing gives a clue to how they have done it.

It wouldn't replaced a good quality HiFi that's been carefully put together but then again you'd struggle to match an amp and speakers as well as this sounds for the same money, it really is that good!

Oh and it came with the £50 Hi-Res voucher too!

Well happy.
