Possible 4% quidco too.
Not highly rated if you don't need the wireless option.
If certain limitations mean you must have have this simulated kind of surround system I wouldn't bother looking any further than the Yamaha YSP900 or YSP1100 systems. These units will certainly cost a bit more (around £500) and they dont double as TV stands but I think they are quite amazing piece's of equipment.
We bought this a week after it was launched, all I can say it's an excellent bit of kit.
We watch alot of DVD's and also have an Xbox 360 and PS3 connected and the sound is A1.
This replaced a Sony 5.1 amp with rear speakers and a subwoofer and don't regret it.
My advice is before you buy, find a store that has one setup (ideally in a seperate room) and listen to it on the different settings you won't be disappointed.
I bought one of these just before Christmas from Amazon. It looks and sounds great. The only slightly annoying thing for me is the display is on the top so you have to get up and walk over to it to make any adjustments apart from the volume which makes the comprehensive remote a little superfluous.
