Disappointing sound with and without supplied speakers


I purchased one of these systems whilst I was moving house. The iPod docking facility is very handy and it also supports having my iPad plugged into it. The amplifier claims to be of a decent output at 60 watts per channel and ought to be able to drive...

Philips DCM3020


Easy set up good sound looks cool I do really like this system

Only thing I'd do to improve this system is to ad more sound control like a simple bass and treble control or graphic equalizer I added an app for iPod which included tune in internet radio and a graphic equalizer which has given me all that I want but...
