Great sound


I purchased this after our other hifi broke.The sound is amazing to what we had before.Bass it not too overpowering and my cd's sound crystal clear.The ipod dock is a great addition.Only downside is the speaker wire is too short to place them one side...

Excellant Product


I Purchased this after my other Hi Fi packed up. As it had got good reviews and write up it swayed me into purchasing it. It has good sound quality and I can also play my ipod through it. Would thoroughly recommend it.

Excellent for price


Larger than thought bigger than my mini cd system. More of a midi system. Sound is really great, bass is awesome, easy to use and set up. Aesthetically pleasing. Is really loud do not need to put it pass 12 but can go up to 40. Buy this if you want to...
