Details

This pack has been around since 2011 and, like most speaker packs, is still going strong. We think this is an ideal set for people looking at buying an AV receiver from around the £200 to £300 mark. You can certainly use it with a more expensive reciever however, but bear in mind the receivers quality will begin to be limited by the speaker pack. As a rule of thumb your speaker pack should be in the range of 2 to 3 times more expensive than your AV receiver if you want to get the most out of your money.

So, if you've decided to go for this pack then what will you get? The pack consists of 4 identical satellite speakers, a centre satellite speaker and a subwoofer. The smaller satellite speakers are for your front left and right and rear surrounds whilst the centre speaker (hopefully obviously!) is for your front centre channel. The subwoofer will provide the bass that these speakers need and will give you the rumble you want from your movies. Like all subwoofers it can be placed anywhere in your room but do ensure that you can run a subwoofer cable to it.

Cabling isn't included which is standard for most cinema packs. You'll need to add speaker cables and a subwoofer cable to your order if you don't already have them, but do feel free to ask us for advice on this if you aren't sure what you'll need. Oh, and you'll need an AV receiver!

Once set up you'll need to configure your AV receiver. Most receivers nowadays will use an autoset up process to make things easier, and once done you can settle down to enjoy this rather good speaker pack.

We found that the sub was very good, which is critical for good sound. It integrates well into the speakers which results in a seamless sound - none of the mid range gaps we sometimes hear in cheaper packs. Detail is good and there's plenty of energy too, making them a very enjoyable listen. We'd class these as being the start of the proper cinema packs, where sound quality is so good that you don't need to spend more - although of course you can do!

A good all round choice if you want to keep your budget beneath £1,000 for an entire cinema system.

What Hifi 5 starsWhat Hifi 5 stars

What Hifi magazine reviewed this pack in October 2011 and awarded it 5 stars.

"We simply don’t expect the scale that this system can deliver for this sort of money. The satellites are cohesive and exciting, dynamic and detailed, while the sub digs deep but stays in control."
