Product Specifications

The MC500 Micro Hi-Fi System with 5 CD Tray Changer features a USB PC Link, which allows the user to turn his PC Hard Disk into a 'Massive MP3 Music Jukebox'. Users can playback their MP3 Music Collection from their PC via powerful Amplifier and Speakers on the Philips Audio System. Consumers can use the remote control to navigate through the contents stored in the MusicMatch Jukebox. In addition, personal setting on this MP3 music is also possible via the audio system. During streaming of MP3 music from the PC via USB PC Link, the display on the audio system will give the track information such as Song title and playtime. You can now sit back on your sofa and navigate through your MP3 music from the PC via 'Audio System Remote Control' e.g. Play, Pause, Stop, Next, Previous track. There is no need to run back to your PC for this. Consumers constantly want maximum performance from their Audio System but most do not know how to achieve this through their system's equalizer setting. They would like to have a convenient sound feature that at the push of a button enables them to obtain the maximum sound performance from their Audio System. MAX Sound technology produces instant boosting in bass, maximizes the volume performance, and instantly creates the most impressive listening experience with just the touch of the MAX button. Digital Sound Control (DSC) offers different sound settings tailored for specific musical styles. Virtual Environment Control (VEC) creates a virtual environment in which the listener experiences different special sound simulations, greatly enhancing the excitement and enjoyment of his or her favorite music.
