System was very easy to set up. Sound is really good and watching a blu ray movie is now a great pleasure. I chose this rather than the 5.1 system mostly because of the included wireless rear speakers and the ability to link up to my home wireless network. Was also keen to experience 7.1 surround sound. The wireless rear speakers are great as well as the ease of accessing the internet wirelessly. I now however realise that all my blu ray discs only have 5.1 sound on so have not yet experienced what 7.1 sound like. Loved however that I could choose to set up the system with the extra set of speakers high up in front (to give vertical sound effects) or next to the seated position to improve the surround sound effect.
