I use mine to play my iPod through my hifi. Design is simple but effective with a decent weight to it (anodized aluminium). There's a nice soft and grippy foam pad on the base, ideal for isolating it from vibrations and stopping it moving about.

I bought this to fit in a dining room sideboard and replace my old Audiolab A8000, Aura TU50 and Cambridge CD300SE, a fairly tough act to follow. Speakers are Bose 305.

And the screen set up buttons are really fiddly to use, but once adjusted to your preference shouldn't need any more attention. If I needed another monitor I would certainly buy an Edge again.
