Bought for 12yr old he's happy


" Nice little bit of kit. Lad is happy as he can listen to his music & talking books but very happy to be able to play his old cassettes too. Remote is a little temperamental though but as it's by his bed it's not a problem. "

updated Philip's


" A really good replacement for our old Mini hifi (Philip's). Its nice to be able too still have FM/MW because where we live you don't get a DAB signal and also having a CD, the real old fashioned cassette player is very nostalgic. Good all round sound...

Good little sound system


" I needed a replacement micro system for one which had broken and this was the closest match I could find. It plays CD's and cassettes (a rarity) and has FM radio (not DAB). It was easy to set up and use, you control it via a remote for the CD player....

Great product


" Good sound. It was the only one I could find with a cassette which i wanted to replace my previous one that the CD player had broken. Found the set up ok but would prefer written instructions rather than pictures. Still haven't worked out how to set...
