This review is from: Roberts SOUND 200 CD/DAB/FM/USB/SD Digital Stereo Sound System with Dock for iPhone/iPod (discontinued by manufacturer) (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Talk about Plug'n'Play, everything about this music system is so easy to use whether using the controls on the top of the machine or the remote (which can do everything the unit buttons can do except eject a CD). It plays CD's (both normal and MP3/WMA), includes a DAB and FM radio will accept music files (MP3/WMA) on a USB stick or SD card and has a dock for iPhone/iPod (which, incidentally, is reinforced so doesn't need a unit specific holder in place which, in the case of other units, can be a pain if one uses more than one type of iPod/iPhone music player). There is also a socket on the back for inputting music from any other player type that can output via a mini stereo jack plug as well as an earphone socket.
The USB and SD points can be used to record from CD and there's an alarm to enable you to wake to iPod/CD/SD/USB/ radio or buzzer
The sound reproduction is excellent and, although there are a number of EQ presets together with the ability to alter the bass and treble independently, the default setting of "flat" is a misnomer as it is anything but flat. It is, in fact, a very good general setting for everyday listening. The quality of what comes out of the speakers is everything one has come to expect of the Roberts name. To be honest, I find it hard to be negative about any facet of this system but, if I was to be very finicky, I would say that the cover for the iPod/iPhone connection could be flip-up rather than remove (and lose??)
I play guitar and piano and spend hours and hours using Logic Pro 9 on my Mac creating and arranging tracks that are then used as the backing for my recordings. Once recorded I import them into iTunes and listen intently. I am very, very critical of my own work and, want to hear every nuance of the piece I have recorded. This system gives me exactly what I want. - Brilliant!!
There's no getting away from it, this is a top rate system with plenty of room filling volume available.
