      I don't believe it's necessarily incompatible it's more that the box is designed specifically with the Sky Q in mind as it can decipher the audio metadata types like sport, crowd, music and movie etc. It has AFAIK been designed to be extra compatible with the Q box as opposed to only the Q box.

      Iíve now read some reviews and what the Soundbox does vis a vis the Q Box is adapt automatically to the things you mention such as sport, movies etc. However, it appears that one can manually achieve the same in conjunction with other equipment by manually making adjustments in the settings. On that basis, I just ordered the box. On a side note, I find it strange that I registered some time ago for further details on the Soundbox but have never received any and only found out of its availability on this Forum.

      That's sort of what I meant but you put it better. I registered my interest, like you, some time ago and got an email last week telling I could phone Sky and order as a priority customer becauase I had registered interest. I was warned however when I ordered that the demand has taken them a bit by surprise.

      My Sky Soundbox arrived yesterday. Easy install and thus far, although not fully tested with all options as yet, I have to say I'm very impressed. Certainly beats the sound of the inboard TV speakers hands down.

      EDIT
      The box has become defective and will be returned. No Q sound so basically now a 'big' TV speaker.
