Consumer review by: Roy Huxley (

Great sound


This Philips system is a lot better than I thought it would be. I bought it for my study and the sound is so good that it could be used as home's main hifi system. Even when increasing the volume the sound doesn't distort. The bass and mid tones are...

The sound, plays mp3 cds and also charges and plays ipods.

fm reception a bit so so but it does have a version with digital radio.
