What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looks and features I purchased the Hlx56s last Xmas as previously had surround sound 5.1 and was time to upgrade TV & Sound system - The Sound Bar was the best option for me as less wires and wireless sub woofer. The sound quality and bass is high in quality and has virtual surround which works well. This 3d bluray player packs a punch and high quality playback. The extra online features offered are a bonus including BD-LIVE. Stylish looking system. Excellent for iphone music playback and streaming movies from laptop etc. The online updates keep the system running smoothly with latest upgrade developments. Very happy customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant Piece of Kit but too Pricey This is brilliant piece of kit. I looked into buying a surround sound system and a chain of Audio specialists were very honest and said that unless you have a large room and can seat the front speakers just behind the TV and have the rear speakers behind where you are sitting then a 6 individual speaker system would probably be disappointing in the sound output. They suggested going for a 'Sound Bar'. I took quite some time looking for the right one and though this is not a true 'Sound Bar' it ticked all the right boxes for me. In a 3 x 4 metre room this is extremely good. I saw people had a few issues with the unit and took a gamble on that I could send the unit back if necessary. I dropped a star on this because of price. I dont think the price of over £700 is warranted. I managed to get mine for just over £350, at that price was very good value.
