Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design with lot of features The best 3D Blu Ray palyer I have used. Reduces the need for another receiver. Easy to install and use. I can't think of buying any more cheap 3D Blu Ray systems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great hardware, lousy controls I just got my set last week. I wanted a system where it is not nessesary to swtich on the TV if I just want to listen music. I was told that there is an app which gives me full controll of the unit. Unfortunately this app is quite useless. I must mention that i use internet radio quite often. There is no option for this at all. I am very dissapointed. I didn`t expect this from such a prestigous manufacturer.Going to bring it back, sorry!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I had high expectations for this unit and have been let down on almost every front. Yes, sound quality is great and the unit looks nice on the rack, but its features and interface are lackluster. Bluetooth often won't connect on its own and drops occasionally, I can't mix video/audio sources, my TV has to be on to play music, no worthwhile apps are available (Netflix and Amazon being the two I really wanted), the auto-volume control has only made loud advertisements louder and more obnoxious, no ability to label my HDMI inputs and the list goes on. I'd return this in a heartbeat if I could get my money back.
