This product arrived within 2 days of ordering it via courier at no extra charge. I have been looking for a decent sound system that worked wirelessly, but didn't skimp on the sound quality. In my opinion, the Zoneplayer/speaker is a very good quality all round sound system. I won't bore everyone with my credentials on judging speakers, but I can tell you that having been in many bands over the years, speaker sound is one of the bains of my life. For a home indoor system, this will not disappoint or let you down. It is very easy to set up and if you live in a small house/apartment (like myself), then this will be pretty much all you need as you can move and place the speakers anywhere in the home where there is a plug socket. I priced up these systems seperately and this starter kit from Amazon proves to be the most cost effective. I didn't bother with the control panel, as I have the iPhone 4 which you can download the easy application to manage iTunes/Zone Player, etc. etc. I would definately recommend this.
