29 March 2018
Great sounding easy to set up add-on to the Ultra Small FF box that I now use to run media into my smart TV - been missing the surround and found this and ordered it online as I really trust the Creative brand. Turned up quickly and was plugged in and set up in no time. I like the easy to find in a darkened room illuminated volume knob, looks great and will find the excellent integrated microphones make for clearer Skype and Zoom sessions with the rellies.
