    Owning only a portable CD Player beforehand with inferior sound quality, I decided to upgrade and after thorough searching and comparisons of numerous systems this was the Hi-Fi System I chose as a long-term purchase as well as for short-term improved sound quality. The bottom line is that I'm very pleased with the unit, despite the odd criticism and I'd certainly recommend it to anyone considering of upgrading to this or a similar Philips model. The set-up is straightforward and it's generally a gorgeous looking piece of kit...not as large as the pictures suggest, but actually quite modest in size with a fully-functional and stylish remote control. Here's a quick run-through of the features that were important to me before I purchased and how I've found the various operations of the `Philips MCM398D/05 Micro Hi-Fi System'...

    (1) A high quality of sound was very important to me and this system does not disappoint. Admittedly I have only a portable system to compare it with, but being able to feel the music through the floor even at a moderate volume setting gives me reason to believe it's excellent even when compared to other similarly priced hi-fi's on the market. Don't worry that it might be too intrusive either, it's quite unassuming yet rich even at low levels. (10/10)

    (2) The USB connection was another important function for me. I dismissed many a good player of equal value and with equally impressive spec's that didn't include iPod compatibility.

    This is a nifty little unit. Aesthetics wise perhaps not to everyone's taste, but the Philips is packed with features. Great bass reproduction and treble is reasonably smooth although not particularly detailed. USB and ipod compatibility an added bonus.....Now for the bad news!

    If you intend to listen to music from a memory stick it may get frustrating. The Philips struggles to read the memory sticks I own even though other hifi systems have no problem playing the files (tried this in the shops). Secondly the speakers are a tad on the cheap and nasty side although admittedly they do sound OK. Lastly, and this is probably the biggest drawback, the black labels on the buttons fade and eventually disappear! After just an hour of using the up/down tuning buttons, to tune in all the radio stations, the one button label had rubbed off completely!

    I've owned Philips units for years now and have always been impressed with the sound and build quality, however I think Philips have cut corners with the MCM398D. It's a shame as I was enjoying the system until the labels starting disappearing! Now I have to return it and look for something else. Buy the way there is no tape deck in case you were wondering.

    Brilliant for the money. Deep, rich sound quality - even at low volume - plus an ipod charger/player, too. We bought this for the dining room but it's so good we are considering using it instead of our main sound system, which cost a great deal more. My husband would have liked a DAB radio but I have to say I have no criticisms at all. Highly recommended.

    I am moving out next week and decided that i needed to upgrade some of my equipment. Laptop, TV, Stereo, the usual stuff.

    for 5 years now I have been using a 5.1 Asda own brand home cinema system that cost £35. It only had 4W speakers and a 15W sub.

    I spent ages trying to find something i liked. I didn't want a cassette deck and PC speakers can't get the clarity of sound.

    I eventually stumbled across this gem and ordered it.

    on arrival this morning I whipped it out straight away and started trying it out.

    CD player - very good play back of a home made CD, awesome sound clarity good levels of treble and bass, no skipping and easy to use.

    Radio - Really clear signal even with the whispy little wire arial phillips provide! which is quite impressive as i can't get mobile phone signal in parts of my room. Philips! if you can afford to throw in 8 different I-Pod adapters you can throw in a decent arial! RDS is really good, search function missed Kiss 100 (some of you may think that is a good thing)

    USB - some of you have complained about difficulty, I formated my memory stick using FAT (stick your memory stick in your computer go to "my computer" right click on the drive and select "format"). Had a little hicup whilst it auto installed the driver for it but it is playing perfect! In fact, the sound is ever so slightly better than the CD-R! really easy and really useful as i keep all my music on a USB hard drive.

    Speakers - really clear, crisp and bassy. Some people have complained that they have too much bass. Yes, they are very Bass happy but switch your EQ to JAZZ and it is a lot better. Personally, I think music has to have bass so i love them. Small, tidy and discrete (if ya keep the covers on them!
