Pros: Fantastic for small spaces. Phenomenal Bass. Punchy controlled sound as well as having the ability to sweep nice and low! V.Loud if required!

Cons: Cable is not the best. Control Pod cable can NOT be extended by using a vga cable. No control over EQ. No line out.

I'll put a proper review up later when i have more time.

 

Very quick notes for now, 

 

The reasons behind me buying this were simple, We had just moved back to my parents and thus 99% of my Hi-Fi had to go into storage.

 

This presented a compact ( excluding the sub lol ) solution to my need for better sound than standard tv/computer speakers.

 

It certainly delivered 2 years ago and still does now!

 

The bass this system is capable off is Phenomenal.

 

Very versatile on the input side offering both analogue and digital inputs.

 

No line or pre-outs however!

 

Standard cables aren't fantastic.

 

Control pod is nicely thought out.

 

EQ settings would have been nice.

Unfortunately the prices on this system have really skyrocketed... Would it still be worth it at 350$?
Z-5500 delivered good value even at 450$ but that's five years now.

Agree this system miss EQ settings but just fine as it is. Quality is great, the model however is discontinued.
I know. At 200-250 I definitely would have bought this system but a new one would cost upwards 500-700 while used ones go from 350-450...
