The sound might be pretty loud, but i found a great deal of depth to be dropped. I could possibly live with this for movies, but for audio, it truly is very lousy. I was let down as following reading through hifi publications raving about this, i had significant hopes. On the plus facet, it seems to be great, and the speakers are very small. It is pretty inexpensive, but maybe not for you if you want to listen to new music.
