Centurion Supports Gallus Premium High Gloss, Outstanding service

Item was what it said it was and was great value for money very happy. This item was what it said it was and was great value for money very happy.

Very nice for the price and easy to assemble but does take time.

Best if you have some open room to build it all. Was easy to build together with decent instructions. Everything lined up pretty well too. The glossy surface looks great. The 2 glass slates are very strong and heavy. Make sure you follow how to set the drawers up with the handles right way. Also there are 2 sets of instructions.

Very nice but there was one slight issue with missing 1. Only took 2 hours to put it together, very nice but there was one slight issue with missing 1 component to put the lights together. Contacted the seller and the matter was resolved quickly.

Very nice for the price and easy to assemble but does take time.

Sonorous MD 8123-B-INX-WNT Ready Assembled Cabinet – Looks great but big problems if you have a curved TV

Just to say, if you’re looking for a tv stand that is different, and has plenty of storage space, then this is the tv stand for you. When i ordered it, i wasn’t sure of how it would look with a tv on, but my mind was quickly put at ease – the whole thing – stand and tv, looks absolutely amazing. The walnut colour of the drawers and the black glass work well together – well worth the extra pennies – altho you do get what you pay for.

Would recommend this stand hence the 5 stars. Great quality, looks stunning. I expected the cabinet on the right to hold dvds standing up like books but it ever so slightly short (won’t squeeze in) so they need to lie flat- only a minor downside. Cables are all tucked away out of sight. Delivery was quick, was called to state the date it was scheduled for and was easy to change (changed to the weekend) can call or chat online to get a 4 hour window. Delivery driver calls approx an hour and half before they are due to be with you and give a rough time.

Excellent piece of furniture, well packaged and well delivered. Guys were very good and very professional. This is a very nice piece of furniture. Whoops i have already mentioned this :-). Well worth the money and looks the shizzle.

Looks great but big problems if you have a curved tv. Strongly suggest you don’t buy this if you have a curved television and if you have a thick carpet. The screws supplied by sonorous don’t fit because of the curve on our tv and samsung didn’t supply wall mount screws or fittings with the tv. So right now we can’t fix the stand’s horizontal mount panel or vertical brackets onto the television. I am trying to sort out the problem with samsung – who, i discovered on reading their manual, are pretty much forcing you into buying their mount – and with sonorous. So right now our tv is just standing on its own stand on the glass shelf – but still looks really good. Setting that aside, here are my other views: i bought this from the sonorous website as the price was lower and they had it in stock so we didn’t have to wait very long. Ordering was straightforward and communication up until the day of delivery was very good. I chatted online twice with someone on the website to discuss and got an email response fairly promptly from someone else after an email query. On the day of delivery we were told the deliverers would call us in advance to tell us what time they were coming – they never did and just turned up without warning at about 5pm.

Hitachi 50HYT62U 50 Inch Full HD Freeview HD Smart LED TV – very happy with picture quality and sound(although a sound bar improves

For a cheap television it is everything you require. Even has a netflix button on the remote which is quite handy. Very lightweight and good picture quality especially in hd.

I have it in my living room , very good conectivity to wi-fi , not best sound but you get what you pay for .

Picture is perfect on this tv. However, the sound is truly awful. I’ve tried with several different settings in the menu and it has made no difference. So i bought a sony soundbar – but the tv doesn’t have a digital optical connector and i can’t get a refund on the soundbar. I’ve tried 4 different cables but nothing seems to work. So i now have a soundbar that won’t connect to a tv that has the sound quality of a kazoo.

  • An Honest Review from a guy who has owned the TV for 7 months. :)
  • very happy with picture quality and sound(although a sound bar improves
  • Great TV also nice budget price hence not a lot

Very good for the money, next day delivery.

An honest review from a guy who has owned the tv for 7 months. So here’s the deal, i have owned this tv for 7 months, so i hope for my review to be of a more reliable standard. Tv quality: 4/5 – the quality is, just as written on the box, full hd. There is a slight issue with quality when using the netflix app, as the app takes about 10 – 15 seconds to properly connect to the wi-fi which leaves you with terrible quality for a small amount of time but otherwise the tv quality is great. Smart tv quality: 3/5 – this tv is definitely a smart tv, as it has bbc iplayer, bbc news, netflix, facebook, skype, to mention just a few, however there is no 4od or demand5 or itv player which is, at times, a drawback. Yet it should be noted that if you have a video(s) on your usb you can insert it into the tv and you can play them with ease. Sound: 4/5 – whilst the sound is of a good standard, i recommend a sound bar to go along with it, as the sound only goes up to 69 for some daft reason and it isn’t always great. Startup: 5/5 – once you turn it on, the tv does actually start up pretty quickly (4-5 seconds). Once again just a tip that i have experienced after dealing with the tv for a long period of time, is that the tv will take around 30 – 60 seconds to connect to the internet using wi-fi, meaning that whilst you can watch ordinary live tv straight away, to try an access the tv’s ‘smart’ features will take up to a minute.

Best tv i’ve ever had and at an amazing price this is an all singing all dancing smart tv.

Great tv also nice budget price hence not a lot. Great tv also nice budget price hence not a lot of scart connections or hdm connections or a swivel base stand. Otherwise it’s up there with the standard bench mark sets like toshiba and panasonic. Light as a cork compared to my 6 year old toshiba which costs a lot more. Sound is like a portable tv soo if your fussy about sound get the hitachi sound bar or another brand sound bar. Nice chunky remote with big numbers ideal for the elderly and it’s very easy to set up with out reading the instruction manual providing you have common sense. Instruction manual could be better as it’s hard to follow.

Sonorous Troy 3210 Ready Assembled Cabinet, Not assembled as per photo.

Not assembled as per photo. . Please note this item is not fully assembled, ready assembled is very misleading. I had to get someone to finish the building of this stand. Which i wanted to avoid as i thought i was getting a fully assembled stand. He said it was a very awkward design. Screws where wrong size, and thread on one wheel was broken. Too much hassle to send back. Took another 30 plus minutes to finish building it. Not sure who would buy it at £450, i feel somewhat cheated at the £95 i paid for it.

CANTON DM 75 : No regrets, good purchase.

Looks great, sounds great, but falls short on connection options. This unit produces amazing sound and looks great, just as a lot of the professional reviews say. It misses out on five stars from me though due to what i consider to be the glaring omission of at least one hdmi input. In fact i had to return the unit for this reason as i discovered my panasonic plasma tv does not output dolby digital/dts from the optical out (which is not uncommon i have since found out). I then had to connect all my av peripherals to the unit via optical (ps3), coaxial (sky+hd) and the analog connectors (the tv itself). I (and my wife) then found it a major hassle to keep switching the tv’s input and the canton’s input when i wanted to change devices. In the end it just felt like integrating this unit in to my setup was a major hassle and i couldn’t imagine my patience improving with the connection issues in the long term. Come on canton, it’s 2014, please release a dm 75 equivalent soundbase with hdmi connections (3 in, 1 out with arc preferably) and the ability to decode dts (e. Someone like myself would be glad to pay another £50-£100 pounds on top of the current price to have these features and it would easily be the market leading product given its already impressive performance.

The product was really easy to install and was up an running within a few minutes with an amazing sound. Flicking between the tv speakers and this canton illustrated an unbelievable contrast. The bass settings also proved to improve the sound considerably. From playing with the settings i also discovered i was able to sync my tv remote to operate this speaker. All in all an excellent system with a very simple setup and intuitive remote control. Bluetooth function proved very useful for music and when watching tv on my ipad.

Comments from buyers

“Tips for getting the sound base working correctly, 5 start product., Impressive Sound from Small Box”

Impressive sound from small box. My first day of using the dm 75 (after running it in for about 8-10 hours) i was very disappointed. Like a few of the dm 50 reviews dialogue and mid range from this unit was so muddied. Bass performance however was very impressive — you really don’t need a subwoofer with this. That was part of the problem the bass was massively overpowering everything. Perhaps because the wooden tv unit it was on was extending it?. I tried the drc setting, tried the stereo/surround settings, tried pre-set eq settings. Same result, muddied mid range.

Brilliant sound stage, very detailed sound, i own the dm 100 just a little longer. Much better than currys rubbish.

Bell’O PR45 Large Entertainment Cabinet For TV’s up to 70″ – Wavs99152 AV Cabinet

Bell’o wavs99152 av cabinet. Bought this av cabinet as i needed a cabinet that was big enough to hold a 55 inch tv, and that would look good within my living room and had ample space to hold all my equipment, the cabinet was delivered within just a few days of ordering, and came flat packed, was extremely easy to assemble and like the description says it requires no tools to assemble. It was put together in a matter of minutes and looks beautiful. It is very expensive for a av stand but i think its well worth the money. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great av cabinet with ample room for there equipment.

High quality and good value for money if you get it at the right price. I have seen it at £500+ but i got it for £280. Comes flatpack but is very easy to put together and very high quality flatpack. Once you have put it together it is solid as a rock. I was worried that the holes at the back wouldn’t fit all my av cables but it fitted fine. I can see if you had a mass of cable it may be an issue.

Panasonic SC-HTE50EB-K 2 : NOT THE BEST FOR GENERAL VIEWING

Sounds great, big improvement. Bought mainly for the different form factor than normal soundbars. I needed something that wouldn’t dwarf my 32′ sony bravia and would fit on my tv stand without hanging over the sides. This works great as i can hide the subwoofer behind the tv and put the speakers below at either side of the sky hd box. I managed to set this up in around 15 minutes and all worked fine apart from one thing. When i hooked up my sony bluray player via hdmi the dolby digital indicator lit up. When i then switched to the sky hd box connected with an optical lead it would never show as coming through as dd even when the epg showed it was broadcasting in dd. After some fruitless exchanges with panasonic support i went back to the manual. Turns out that you need to connect sky via the aux optical input rather than the tv optical input. I now get dd from both the bluray player and sky. Only downside is that i now need to switch the input manually via the subwoofer controls or the remote. If i don’t switch the input i still hear the sound from the speakers but it’s not dd. Guess it must route via arc through the hdmi?overall i am really pleased with how it sounds and looks. Massive improvement over the tv speakers.

Not the best for general viewing. Boomy bass can be annoying and not enough middle so not ideal for general viewing. So doesn’t really fulfill our requirements.

Very good quality item, very pleased.

Comments from buyers

“Good for the price, Sounds great, big improvement, NOT THE BEST FOR GENERAL VIEWING”

This is a brilliant system for flat screen tvs. I was toying with a soundbar but because of space i decided to go with the panasonic 2. Well it didn’t disappoint,it was easy to set up. Especially with the panasonic viera connect system. The sound is brilliant as you can regulate it from the remote. I am glad i chose this product.

Not the best for general viewing. Boomy bass can be annoying and not enough middle so not ideal for general viewing. So doesn’t really fulfill our requirements.

Had this for about a week now. Aesthetically very nice – shiny black finish looks good. Also the size of the satellite speakers means they easily sit either side of the sky box on a shelf in my tv unit. Initially slightly dissapointed by the sound – seemed to be a constant rumble going on, but have since found this was limited to one dvd which was filmed a few years ago (west wing season 1). Lots of use over the weekend across a variety of programmes/movies in sd and hd and no issues of this nature at all. So, good news is that this is a reasonably economic way to enhance the sound on your flat screen tv – and it definitely is an enhancement. However, you do get what you pay for when it comes to audio visual equipment imo. For example, it isn’t what you’d call high fidelity (slightly lacking in the mid range i’d say), and actually, it’s not quite as good as my 4 year old onkyo htx-22 (an adiitonal £60 vs the panny though) which i have on my other telly. Still, overall this does the job i want so happy to give it 4 stars.

Ligawo PRO HDMI Splitter 1×4 4K*2K UHD – The perfect HDMI switch for SONOS Playbar owners.

Anyone who owns a tv or monitor with just one hdmi input and want to connect additional devices such as a game console, blu-ray player or a computer at him, standing in front of a small problem. Who does not ever want to put each device on the cable, requires either a modern av receiver or hdmi switch. One hdmi switch can be depending on the model multiple hdmi sources such as gaming consoles, blu-ray player, action cams and computer connect. The individual sources can then be either directly at the switch, or via remote control switch and are then forwarded via the hdmi output to the hdmi port on the tv. If you decide on a hdmi switch, then you should definitely make sure that this also supports the latest hdmi standard. Otherwise it may happen that it comes at a 4k resolution 3d or problems. The ligawo 4×1 hdmi switch is in one is delivered in a white, nondescript cardboard. Included are located next to the switch an ir remote control, a 23 volt power supply, mounting accessories, an ir sensor extension, and a user manual. The ligawo 6518870 hdmi switch is extremely compact and processed strikingly high.

I then output the video via hdmi to the tv and the audio via optical cable to the sonos playbar. This switch handles all of this perfectly. It sends the correct type of audio from the source device to the playbar without messing with it so finally i can send true dd5. 1 from any of the devices to the playbar.

This is a great piece of kit. It works flawlessly and does everything it says it does. It’s a bit more expensive than other hdmi switches i have tried, but it has two very important advantages over the cheaper ones:firstly: it has full and proper edid control over the audio stream you extract from the 4 source hdmi connections to send out via the optical toslink output. To explain: in my case, i had the problem that my sources (a nowtv box, panasonic blu-ray player and humax youview box) all have the ability to output high quality dolby digital 5. 1 sound, but my sound system only has one digital optical input and no hdmi inputs. I had been using the optical output from the tv to send to the sound system, but because the tv is pcm stereo only, the hdmi edid handshake between the sources and the tv meant that i could only get pcm stereo from this connection. I have tried a couple of other cheaper hdmi switches to get over this problem, but although they both claimed edid control, it was a false claim in both cases; you can specify the format of sound coming from the toslink output, but they still simply pass through the edid handshake from the tv to the sources, so i still could only get pcm stereo to my sound system, because this was dictated by the edid handshake of the tv, not the sources or the switch. It overwrites and overrides the edid handshake from the tv/monitor, so the sources will transmit the highest possible sound quality they are capable of delivering through to the optical socket of the switch, regardless of the capabilities of the tv’s own speaker system. So my problem was solved using this switch. If you are looking for an hdmi switch for no other reason that your tv/monitor doesn’t have enough hdmi inputs, then buy one of the cheaper ones – they work fine. But if your need is because your surround sound system doesn’t have enough digital inputs and your tv has no digital output or can only process stereo, then you’ll need this one. Secondly: unlike others, this switch is listed as a supported device for logitech harmony universal remote controls, so i have been able to program my remote to automatically switch between sources.

With all the other switches i have tried they have never handled the audio properly and just sent a pcm 2.
