I went for a full set of Neat Speakers for a surround sound system, Motive 2 and Motive C at the front and the Iota's for my rears. The Motive 2s I have are piano black and look fantastic, the angle gives that little extra style and directs the sound well towards you. I was pleasantly surprised by the base the speakers could produce by themselves without the use of a sub. My films have never sounded so good with them integrated into a 5.1 system. I noticed so many more new sounds than I had before, it was like watching Star Wars for the first time again and makes you realise how important the sound is to the viewing experience. If I was impressed with the sound with my films with music I was blown away, compared to what I was used to over the last few years with my KEF 2005’s was so marked I wished I’d spent the money on quality speakers earlier. In pure stereo they are great, listening to the Fugees album The Score was a whole new experience, they handled Vangelis’s Blade Runner and Pink Floyd’s The Division Bell with wonderful acuity. Put the amp into Pro-logic with the other Motive speakers and I was just lost in the music of sound! They work for me, and I highly recommend them, I’d give them 5*s as well.

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
