Compare it to a real sound system to hear what else you can buy for that money. You can get Airplay technology on pretty much anything now, you don't have to limit yourself to a small speaker, which will never sound as good as a real system. The best soundbar out there is Yamaha, and even that falls short. I has the Yamaha, and I heard the others. If you need small speakers, have a look at Deftech ProCinema series with a Yamaha 475 amp. The nice thing about components is you can change the receiver when technology gets outdated, such as when HDMI 2.0 comes out.
