    Bought this for myself as needed a little extra sound in my room to accompany the purchase of a projector...WOW! This is one of the best things I have ever bought! You'd expect quality for Sony, and as always they have delivered. I had this unit shipped to my neighbor (who I might add is 86 years old) as I wouldn't be in - perhaps a mistake, as this thing is HUGE! As dimensions aren't given on here, I'll let you know;

    The left and right speakers are (WxHxD)235mm, 365mm, 210mm.
    The central unit is 235mm, 365mm, ~410mm.
    The sub-woofer is 265mm, 365mm, 320mm.

    So as you might see getting your tape measure out, this thing is a little on the large side, but it all comes in for good reason. When I set it up, the first thing I did was connect my iPod and play a few bassey songs...WOW! Before messing around with any of the settings, on level 15/30, I was already amazed with the quality. Went on then to play with some effects and preset EQ's (which is all nicely explained in the supplied manual) and was having a rave! Don't think lightly if purchasing this unit, as it is primarily supposed to be used for its bass, as even without the woofer, the speakers have two mini-woofers included. But anyway, thats the bass...moving on :)

    There are 4 different inputs for listening, CD, Radio, USB's and PC.

    CD is brilliant, what I love about it is that you can put 3 CD's into it (via the shuffler), and change them round at anytime without disrupting the one playing, very nice :) There's also the option to display track, artist and album information for MP3 CD's which is also very nice :)

    The radio has RDS ability which I have noticed, though haven't seen DAB yet, but I'm not too fussed for this anyway.

    Sony calls this Hi-Fi a mini system. It is only 9" wide but a whopping 16" long and along with the three speakers buyers need to be aware of their available space. Also, the speaker wires are short meaning they must be placed close to the unit.

    The system is supplied with an AM loop antenna and FM lead and automatic tuning will find all available stations. The 3-disc changer is noisy and consists of three trays which need to be manually pushed back and pulled forward. I preferred the older rotating disc changer. It is possible to record music from a CD onto a USB device although a USB cable is not supplied. The audio format is MP3 but when transferring from USB port A to B it is possible to transfer WMA and AAC files. Compatible USB devices include the classic, touch and nano iPods and all Sony Walkmans and Walkman phones. The Sony PSP is also compatible. These devices can be operated from the unit or its remote. Using an audio cord (not supplied) it is also possible to connect a television to the system.

    There are several sound presets but none of them aid the listener who prefers Puccini to 50cent. Thankfully the user is able to customise the sound to their preferences. There is a very useful surround effect and the Subwoofer can be turned off. Certain high street retailers are selling this system at over fifty pounds more. At such a low price this system is a must buy.

    Well it arrived in a massive box at my university and its been brilliant ever since! the base is strong but the main sub can be turned off which comes in handy with my flat mates upstairs :)
    one not so good point is that it takes a bit of time to load a CD, but in the world of iPods this doesn't really matter.

    Buy it and you wont be disappointed but make sure you have the space for it cos its a little chunky!

    Good first feel !

    I have been thinking of buying a good hi fi for quite sometimes. Have been doing some look around into hi fi market and finally decided on this Jumbo over the Monster big brother Sony MHCGTZ4I.CEK. Honestly cost being one of the deciding factor

    Ordered on Thursday and received my Hifi immediate Monday.I am quite impressed with the first looks and the feel. "First impression is the best impression" - I am one of those guys. I should say it hardly took me 5 minutes to get it up and running from the box. The display panel is colorful and has few options as well. The biggest Yes is for the sound clarity and the Groove effects. Even at level 4 (30 full volume I guess)the music is pleasantly audible. Havent explored the USB & PC options yet.

    Mind you this is a true Jumbo in its size, box weighs 26 Kg, I ended up puncturing POP wall while moving it up the stairs. Lesson learnt in a hard way. Also you could end up being an NOISY Neighbour beware of the sound... Also it seems too plastic.. which I dont mind....

    Overall I would definitely tag it under "Worth Buys" and once again SONY hasnt disappointed in the sound front.

    When I received this item I thought great looking and looks powerful. I opened it up and set up the unit. Being a bit of a gadget man I hoped it would be versatile. I was pretty disappointed. Plugged in a load of USB sticks into the slots, got not detected errors on most. If you put in USB sticks that have anything but mp3's on it, the system will not read it. I still haven't been able to get the system to play anything but MP3's even though it states that it will play AAC format. The main reason I got this device is for the USB and playing AAC files. Also there is no bass and treble settings.You only have basic equalizer settings and I have never been able to get as much treble from the speakers as I would have liked. Also if you have first Generation Ipods it will not detect them. My misses was not happy about this. Speaker leads are short so leaving the unit in the house and putting speakers in the garden is practically impossible. It is powerful though and bassy. My main gripe is the AAC. I know my files are in format 44.1khz so it should read them. Anybody knows any reason why it does not read AAC format please let me know.
