    I'd be dallying for a while about buying this or the Intempo DAB iPod dock and I am so glad I bought this one. It has great sound for such a relatively small system (I am sure the neighbours agree). I have literally just plugged in my iPod and it plays. The remote is great too - I can control the wheel with it which is great for being lazy! The DAB functionality is great too - I have already saved my favourite channels in the system.
    Very easy to use, looks great, sounds amazing - no regrets (only that I didn't buy it sooner!).

    I bought this system to replace a similar one by an inferior make (iSymphony) and it's exactly what I wanted. It has great sound, although I'm not using the speakers that came with it, it's connected through my AV system. Unlike the previous system I had there is no audible buzzing noise when the power is turned on which is why I needed a new unit. The CD turntable is silent which is another bonus.

    As for the DAB aerial issue (see other reviews) I found the supplied length of wire gave me perfect reception for 5Live, Planet Rock etc by just running it straight up the wall in some trunking.

    If you have an iPod and are looking for a unit to dock it into in order to play tracks and charge the player at the same time you will be more than happy with this system - and it's a good price too! I found the remote is easy to use as the controls for using the iPod are exactly the same as on the player, it's just a wheel system with a button in the middle.

    Simple, stylish and not expensive. Got to be a winner!

    This is a good micro hi-fi system for some-one who is looking for a decent looking system with good features. I particular wanted a small hi-fi as I didn't have a lot of space, but wanted the features- most radio bands, CD, ipod dock, and small good speakers.

    AM frequency was important to get all the different football commentaries as Radio Scotland can have different games on DAB, FM and AM! I actually found AM quite hard to get on any system- but this had it and that swung me as well as how well it would fit in with the other electrical equipment I have.

    The reception quality was good in FM, AM and DAB using only provided aerials and I see no need to connect it too my outside aerial.

    Sound quality is good though, I would like a deeper sound with more bass and the system doesn't let you fiddle with the sound output types much at all.

    One quibble I have is the remote is a bit button crazy and is counter intuitive for some functions at first compared to other remotes, but it works fine when you get to know it!

    Good looks, good sound, and great features. Sony does well again.

    First of all I would like to say Amazon Del service is top draw I ordered this unit on Monday afternoon at about 2.30pm it was on my doormat on Tuesday morning at 10.00am with the courier. Going back to the unit this is a brillant piece of kit from Sony. It has all the bell and whistles on it to keep most people happy as for the sound quality very good. The setting up is very easy and straight forward including the ipod docking part. Overall a very small neat and tidy unit that will do the job for the average user and more importantly it's easy to operate and comes with a remote. You can more than likely buy cheaper versions of this docking system but what you got to remember this is Sony they been around a while now and they know what there doing when it comes to this and it's not alot of money for what you get. I will add my unit does not pick up one Dab Station which was a little disappointing I might be in a poor reception area or it could be the silly little antenna they supply. At first I was angry but if I am honest I never really listen to the radio so it isn't a great problem. It picks up FM stero stations and local stations no problem but don't let this put you off.

    I bought this system to enjoy my i-pod music collection, together with the occasional CD. The DAB radio was a plus but not critical. I have owned several audiophile systems and appreciate the musical reproduction they offer. However, this is NOT an audiophile component but a capable audio system. No problems with DAB performance, even though I don't have the supplied leads fully extended. The abilty to navigate through your i-pod is slick. Add in the the Sony quality and the package is very attractive. Just buy one !!.
    PS - well done to Hughes Direct for the excellent service and fast delivery.

    Received this hi-fi this morning and am delighted with it. I primarily wanted a system with DAB and the capability to dock/play my ipod Touch 2nd generation and it ticks those boxes plus more too. I am able to pick up numerous stations via DAB radio with the aerial enclosed, no problems at all with reception or quality. One function that I absolutely love is being able to play internet radio via my Touch to hi-fi.

    Noticeable downsides so far are that the speakers do sound a bit tinny and the equalizer is very basic. A very limited amount of bass can be achieved. Also the remote control could be more user friendly but it may just be a case of familiarising myself with it.

    Overall it's a brilliant piece of kit and well worth the money. A definite bargain at the price and I would highly recommend it for ipod Touch users especially.
