Morphy Richards Accents 44733 4 Slice Toaster - Bl&hellip by Morphy Richards
2.0 out of 5 stars Meh!, 14 May 2014
I bought this just over a year ago (damnit!). It seemed to toast things reasonably well - although as other reviewers have said, it takes quite a while (as they say, a watched toaster never... um... toasts). I like toasty things a bit crispy on the outside and a bit squidgy on the inside, and this can achieve both these qualities. As other reviewers have also noted, it's quite pretty.

I bought this as I was unable to connect my new DVD player to my very old amplifier, and I'd been considering getting some sort of networked music system for a while. This provides everything I need - a CD player that I can connect to my existing speakers (I still have loads of CDs that frankly I can't be bothered ripping!), digital/intenet radio, and a networked system so I can play my music downloads directly from my computer.

I should point out now that I'm pretty inept when it comes to technical stuff, but even I managed to set it up without a glitch. The only slight difficulty I had was bi-wiring my speakers, as there's only one pair of inputs for each speaker - so it was… Read more
