A neat little system,
We are quite pleased with this item. As it was to replace a 300 watt Technics system it would be unlikely to equal it, but we never used a third of its power.
The sound is crisp and clear with no noticeable distortion up to the loudest volume we would use. The tone is pleasing on classical and popular music. The radio is clear with a loft aerial for the FM and the supplied antenna for DAB. The CD played discs which would not play on our previous system, so its ability to deal with scratches and errors seems good. Ipod connection and operation is as easy as you would expect.
Set-up is simple - just connect the speakers and plug it in! It has clean, simple lines and feels well made.
A couple of niggles. The instructions could be clearer on tuning in the radio; OK, I worked it out (which of the buttons on the remote you need to use) but you shouldn't need to. The unit comes with a connected lead and UK plug, rather that a plug in lead - this meant I couldn't feed the lead through the small hole in my furniture and plug it in to the unit; I had to enlarge the hole to get the plug through.
Knowing what I know now would I still buy it? Definitely yes.

this item spec says it has a headphone socket but I went to check this item out in the sony shop and comet and the item definately does not have an headphone socket.

Interesting comment - it also says that it is front loading, surely not? I am looking to purchase this.

Hi. Can you tell me if this system has the capacity to add an external turntable, ie. does it have the capacuty to plug in a red and white RCA connectors?

Mr. S. J. Clark says:
It has a 3.5mm input, you would need to use a phono to jack adapter. Keep in mind that most modern stereos including this one don't feature a phono input so you'll either need a turntable with a built in phono stage or a standalone phono stage.

Cut the plug off and discard it (after removing the fuse for safety). Then fit a new plug. Wee hole.
