Pure Sound

Powerful but refined

You know how some systems look the part and then you turn them on? Pale tones, tinny sound, distortion at high volume. It's just not good enough. Which is why you want a system with the power and poise to perfectly play your music.

This Hi-Fi has been designed for pure and natural sound. Geometric grounding technology minimises distortion from a high powered amp so you hear accurate rhythm and tempo, no matter what you're listening to. Compact two-way speakers harness that power for a natural acoustic balance. Every tiny detail from grooved internal speaker walls to woofer and tweeter construction has been focused on purity. Even at a booming 100 watts of RMS output.

Personalise

Even better, you can fine tune the sound to your own personal preferences using the bass/treble equaliser. Bit more bass for your dance tracks, more treble for vocals.

Any band, any artist

This system is perfect for all kinds of music from house and hip hop to rock and pop, jazz and classical. It respects the fact that we all have varying tastes and even our own tastes can shift throughout the day. Foo Fighters for breakfast, Fauré for tea, that sort of thing. Power and subtlety in equal measure.

All in One Place

So much music

It may look like a modest system but it still manages to play host to a vast array of different music sources. Listen to your iPod, tune into your top FM, DAB or Internet radio stations and even play songs hanging around on a USB card. Just about any digital media is fair game so you won't have to miss out on anything, no matter where it's stored.

Get tuned in

Nothing like coming downstairs on a Sunday morning and listening to your favourite DJ whilst making breakfast. You'll get maximum choice here with a full spread of FM, AM, DAB and DAB+ channels plus thousands of Internet radio stations too. With 50 presets, you can flick between stations simply by pressing buttons. By the way, DAB set up is automatic so when you plug the system in for the first time it will automatically find every DAB station available in your area. How good is that?

Easy connections

Wherever your music resides, you have a right to enjoy it. Connect up your MP3 player using the audio-in input or load directly from a USB and release your favourite albums and songs. You can also connect a Bluetooth® adaptor to the USB input allowing you to share music stored on your Bluetooth phone, PC or Tablet and listen to it using your wireless headphones.

FM antenna
Remote control
Universal Dock Adapter for iPhone

This micro hi-fi unit really does punch above its weight and small size.
Others have extolled its virtues, so I am just going to add some advice about setting up the unit, which could save future purchasers a lot of time.
I live in an area where DAB reception is poor and limited to just a few BBC stations. I would have needed to buy and install a good external aerial such as the Triax DAB 5 element one from Amazon.
Since I do have a good broadband speed, the obvious solution was internet radio with thousands of stations available worldwide. There are 1042 in the UK alone.
For lovers of Delta blues, R & B etc, try Radio Nesebar (Bulgaria) and Lemonos Radio (Russia). I have not yet found anything half as good in the States which I find quite bizarre.

The Sony Quick Start guide is good but you will also need to refer to the manual/operating instructions.
To set up internet radio, first turn on your wi-fi router. Then enter your wi-fi key using the keypad on the remote control (see pages 14 & 15 of manual).
Once you reach "Complete!", remember to press ENTER. I forgot the first time round, since I thought that "Complete!" meant complete, but it didn't.

For internet radio you need to select Music Services and then vTuner.
HOWEVER, if a very tiny "update" message appears on the screen, as it probably will, you first need to go to page 48 of the manual and follow the instructions.
I wasted loads of time wondering why I could not reach vTuner. The update (Ver. 1.05.2.04) dated 27-6-2012 is a firmware network update.
Without this update it is impossible to connect to the internet!!

This is an outstanding HiFi system with many features and, above all, an excellent sound. I am listening mainly to classical music and the sound is crystal clear, very rich and spacious. A true pleasure to listen to. The DAB radio is brilliant and the playback of CDs (burned as well) and of MP3 on a memory stick very satisfactory as well, depending obviously on the level of the original recording. Being very compact it fits in small places as well.

At £185 it's a real bargain and delivery was very fast too. Very much recommended for as long as it stays at this price !!! It is sold for £399 at Sony: [...]

Sony couldn't have found much else to add to this audio system, it plays radio stations, cds, mp3 players and flash drives, and plays them well.
A really good piece of kit for the price I bought it at. I wish I'd bought it 3 months ago when I would have saved another £60.(could've bought more cds)
I've been using it for a month now and although it's always difficult to quantify audio quality because it's so subjective I'm going to try.
Clear and weighty would be my one sentence summation. There's scale to the sound, the top end is clear but slightly soft and the bass is tight. Instruments sound as they're meant to and the soundstage is good. The speakers are very good but probably are the weak link. I've wired them up with 2x10m length of 322 strand 2.5mm professional speaker cable as I need a long run, I believe this sounds better than the supplied cable.(I may try some other speakers and report back later. Using headphones shows even more the quality of the electronic part of the system.
I suppose this system will be compared to the Denon DENON DM38DAB MICRO SYSTEM (BLACK) My own tastes find the Denon sound to be a bit on the hard side and since I use headphones a lot, the issues with it's headphone socket also make it a non starter for me.
Other reviewers have mentioned DAB & FM reception, I live in a strong signal area so have had no problems with the supplied arials.

Me and Mrs M were looking for a unit to replace the ancient analogue radio that has served in our kitchen for decades. Our wish list was simple: a radio that ideally would work with DAB, an embedded CD player and the ability to stream music from a PC. Surprisingly, the Sony CMT-G2BNIP seemed to be the only product on the market that did all of these things - nobody else seems to offer an embedded CD player with this combination of features.

We actually purchased the CMT-G2BNIP from Sony's online store because it was 10% cheaper than Amazon and it was delivered by courier without any trouble. Our initial impressions were good: the unit is heavy and robust and yet small enough to be concealed in the corner of our kitchen. You don't so much as turn this unit on, but rather boot it up. It takes a few seconds to connect to the home Wi-Fi and find the services, which we took some getting use to, given that we expect a radio to "just work" immediately after being switched on.

The first negative point was the supplied FM aerial (a wire) which would have looked at home on an alarm clock radio from the 1980's. Very cheap. Unfortunately the DAB aerial was worse: there isn't one supplied, and without it the unit can't receive a DAB signal whatsoever inside the house. Shame Sony, you missed an opportunity there.

However, the discovery of Internet Radio (which Sony call Music Services) was a bonus - potentially hundreds of channels sorted by genre or location. Our Internet connection is excellent (Infinity) and adding another device to the home network is no problem.

Comparing the sound quality of an Internet radio station to a native FM one is amazing - the Internet sounds much better.
