Well pleased with my purchase. I had bought a DAB aerial to go with it, as my old hifi aerial did not give a good reception in same location. However I have not needed to use it as the little wire one that came with-it is fine - works a treat.
bought this to down size from my kenwood seprates added a sub woofer with it now got a good quality sound with plenty of depth n saved a mass of space on both my old hi fi n cds as this can take flash sticks
I am not a techie person and have never subscribed to the opinion of how you can "really hear the difference" having owned a few stereos over the years. I chose this particular model as it had good reviews, was neat and tidy had the top mounted Ipod doc. In all honesty I'd have bought a Denon stereo for the same price but was put off by having to connect the Ipod via a lead.
So for me the aesthetics were my main focus. So when I connected it up and played my first CD I was really impressed with the quality of sound - which wasn't something I'd thought I'd get. It was noticeably clearer, had more depth and sounded so real - like listening to a musician in the front room.
The stereo looks great, for someone who isn't that technical I was relieved how easy it was to set up the speakers, having read all sorts about connections etc, I was full of trepidation when I opened the box and saw the cables, but it is very, very easy and I was so pleased with the results.
I am really pleased with the stereo, the value of it and the look of it, it's been a real bonus that I wasn't expecting.
Quality kit straight from the box. Beautifully made and easy to put together. You will need to adjust the bass/treble to suit your taste as I found the original sound a tad boomy. The speakers are glossy and look very classy, be warned though....they attract dust! I use this in the bedroom with a I-POD Classic attached and the sound is excellent. It does not come with a universal I-POD adaptor so you will need to source that if you do not already own one.
A review about a couple of points. I use this system as a luxury alarm clock, with iPhone4 docked to the system playing music to get to sleep at night. The LCD display is dimmable which is important when having the system in the bedroom as I dislike bright flashing lights at night.
The physical ipod docking feature is not very strong nor well designed. I broke the dock on the first system within a week by pulling the phone off at an angle (rather than vertically)... other minisystems with docks have a freely moving physical dock that would have prevented this damage.
Other than this not entirely robust iphone dock, the system is brilliant.
