Consumer review by: Phillygee (argos.co.uk)

Phillips surround sound

 

This system was a lot smaller than I thought it would be,. When used in conjunction with a movie, the sound through the front two speakers and base are fantastic. You really feel like you are part of the film. It's neat that you can take the wireless...

Good but could of been better

 

This is a good system, however its not amazing, the sound is good, I did not feel when you took the small speakers to the back they were loud enough. It also does not come with HDMI or optical cable to connect it just to let you know. Its a good system...

Easy stereo to surround sound

 

Had to update the firmware before I could get the HDMI Audio Return Channel to display on TV. After that worked fine, but you do need a decent quality HDMI cable. Quick conversion to 4.1, just lift off the tops and put them where you want. Plus you can...

Great product -no more cables

 

Easy to setup. The system is wireless which is great as you don't have the worry about running cables for your stereo effect or surround sound. When you turn them on the speakers auto negotiate but it does take about a minute to do this. You have...

" This is by far the best thing I own in my house. The sound quality is superb. Crystal clear and so easy to set up! Be warned HDMI cable is not included so make sure you have one. Would definitely recommend this product to anyone. "

Consumer review by: Coolbaby5 (argos.co.uk)

Fantastic sound

 

" Definite cinema quality sound, even without the subwoofer connected! (we have quite a small lounge) I found it quite difficult to set up and had to purchase a couple of different cables to fit my TV. It definitely would have benefitted from having...

Consumer review by: Ladyj (argos.co.uk)

great design

 

" Having taken only minutes to set up, it is easy to use and good to look at. The pods that are removable and wireless, can just pick them up and walk into garden or other rooms and continue listening to music or can put them around the room for...
