Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Bring all your music together in one place, with the Sony Giga Juke™ audio system. A massive 80GB built-in hard drive enables you to store up to 20,000 tracks from any source, including CD, PC, Walkman™ and even treasured vinyl, via a USB turntable or tape deck. The Giga Juke™ will automatically label and sort your tracks, so you can enjoy them with a touch of the easy-to-use controls. Alternatively, keep up with all the latest sounds, news and shows on the built-in DAB radio, which offers you extra stations and easy tuning. Or simply plug in your Walkman™ or iPod for quick playback. Two-way front speaker units deliver 60W total power output, while a range of equalizer settings mean you can get the best from your music collection.

All your music in one place
Transferring tracks to the Giga Juke™ is simple. If you’ve got a large CD collection, no problem. You can rip music directly from CD at up to 4x recording speed. Lots of digital tracks stored on your PC? Wireless and easy to use, the Digital Media Port connects Giga Juke™ to your PC, mp3 player and other Bluetooth enabled devices for fast transfer. And if you’ve got some treasured classics on vinyl, a USB port enables you to digitally copy them over, using a USB turntable. Updating your latest music collection is quick too, since the system recognises and adds only new titles.


4-line LCD display makes it easy to search,
find and access your favourite tunes

Superior sound
Once the Giga Juke™ is loaded with all your music, it’s time to rediscover your collection with the system’s great sound quality and features. The speakers include a redesigned woofer, featuring twin magnet technology, delivering superior sound clarity and bass frequency response. They’re complemented by Bass Boost, Bass and Treble EQ settings, so you can choose the dynamics to suit your music.

Simple cataloguing
As you transfer your tracks, they’re automatically labelled, thanks to the pre-loaded Gracenote database of approximately 350,000 albums. And that means you can easily search by artists to pull out particular songs, all at the touch of a button.

More choice with the built-in DAB tuner
Move quickly and easily through the 50 preset radio stations using the Giga Juke™ controls. When you find one you like, the digital radio standard ensures great quality of sound, free of interference.

Get connected
For extra convenience, the Giga Juke™ has a range of ports for simple connections. The WM-PORT lets you dock your Walkman® and playback, import and transfer music at up to 10x recording speed, as well as recharge its battery. Use the Digital Media Port or USB port to connect your iPod or MP3 player.

I really, REALLY wanted to give this the full 5-stars..
but there are just too many minor niggles that get in the way.

Let me start with the good..
Having looked high and low for some sort of HDD hifi to put all my CDs on and finding nothing doing, I was beginning to think that I may have to make do with connecting my walkman to the back of my old hifi..
Then I spotted this system, at £250 or so, it wasn't cheap, but it certainly had the features I was looking for..

Internal Hard drive
Dab Radio
Decent output(w)
Walkman mounting
USB port

I have to say, the system looks great, but in a somewhat understated way.
It would probably sit in a corner of your room without attracting too much attention to itself.. no flashing lights or bright LED displays.
I'm pleased with the look of the unit, I'm a sucker for anything black and this has a very nice shiny black finish.. great to look at, but a real sod to keep dust free.

The sound is great - powerful and clear.
The system does not have an equaliser or any sort of surround sound.
What you do get with this system, is simple bass & treble controls (range: -4 to +4), these are adequate, but I still think a mid-range EQ band would have been helpful.
Certain albums that I have, seem to be lacking in this range.

The remote is a little complicated at first, but you soon get the knack of which button does what.

The system has more inputs than you can shake a stick at, including USB, DMport, line-in and a slot for your walkman and an Ipod dock.. as well as the CD tray.

Although you can copy CDs to the system via the CD tray, I transferred all of my CDs via a USB stick.

I bought this for my husband who is utterly computer illiterate and wouldn't even use my ipod because it entailed downloading from a computer. The Giga Juke instructions are simple and easy to understand and he had no trouble in impementing them and operating the system. He has downloaded his whole cd collection which are is now in the loft.It also has the ability to download from a walkman or an ipod.
It incorporates a DAB radio, although reception was poor in our area but but for very little money he has erected a dab ariel on the roof and is now delighted. The unit proved to be easy to record to and he liked it that he could very simply leave out those odd tracks that he wished weren't on an album. The hardrive delivers an led readout to see who is performing and the name of the track which is being performed.
He puts it on shuffle and is delighted with the whole system and it's performance. The sound quality is tremendous from this great little system and is reasonably priced.

It looks good, it sounds good and it really does revolutionise how you listen to your music collection. Excellent value for money and the service from Amazon was great as usual.
The Cd works fine, the radio is good - no problem with DAB except you do have to use the aerial.

So, what's not perfect:
It takes ages to transfer your CDs onto the system
The way it stores them means that you end up with lots of folders for the same artist (Elvis Costello, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Elvis Costello And The Attractions etc etc) Although you can rename the folders, you can't use a name thats already in use
You can't search for songs, only for artists and when you search for artists they are nearly all under T (The Beatles, The Kinks, The Horrors etc etc)

Overall, though, a good product that would have been almost perfect if they had paid more attention to the software

I'm very pleased with this system. It looks good and is reasonably compact. Good detailed instruction book. It's easy to transfer your music to it and easy to get any missing titles from the internet. Sound quality is OK. Delighted that it can record off the radio. However, I'd have liked to see a better database system in terms of categorising and searching. You can only search by artist name and not by song title or album title. Albums are stored against artist name, album title and then track titles. You cannot do multiple categorisation. For example, I have a number of xmas albums, and they're stored under the artists' names. At xmas time I won't be able to play these one after the other unless I change the artist to 'xmas' so that they are all listed together, and when the player is on shuffle mode at other times of the year I can't exclude them from being played. As I listen more to the radio than I do my albums, this is a minor irritation to me. The bonus of this system for me is that I now have all my music from my hundreds of CD's in one place, whereas the actual CD's themselves could be in the car, in the office, in the kitchen or in the living room. I would certainly recommend this, despite the restrictions of the database.

Sony Giga Juke NASE300HKITFI.YG Music Systems with 80GB HDD

I'm very pleased with my Gigajuke a nice design, promptly delivered and well packed from Amazon Direct. I did get it when the price was a little lower so it was a good deal. Would have loved the next model up but out of my price range I'm afraid.

However I do think there are a few points that could have made this a class above anything else on the market. Sony seem to follow the Betamax-Minidisk trend of doing things their own way in regards to formats. Neither of my 2 MP3 players or the 2 USB memory sticks I have were compatable so I had to purchase a Sony Walkman and a Sony USB stick to get the full use out of the system. It did come with a pod attachment for an Ipod but I've never been keen on them.

I don't mind the slowish 4x speed it copies & converts songs to the hard disk I'm in no rush to fill it up but I think it really let's the system down that it cannot be connected directly to the PC for file transfer and updating the database via USB.
File formats are a bit limited and it seems its 128kb MP3 quality only unless I've missed something.
As someone mentioned a screen where the angle could be altered would have been good.
Speakers are not bad but I have attached my OLD Sony speakers which I prefer.
A song/track name search would have been good too rather than just searching for and artist only by 1 letter.
I purchased a Sony Bluray player recently and as with the GigsJuke there is no CD drawer open option on the remote control which is odd.
