Sony CMT-MX550i


The Sony CMT-MX550i is a elongated rather nice audio unit, it has DAB and FM radio, tray CD player, external audio in as well as the ability to play iPod and iPhone and to cap it off it can also play input from a USB stick drive for good measure.

There is a sleep timer function that either turns off after 100 minutes or when the CD or USB stick has played

Another quality Sony Product


Clear, crisp sound. Very easy to set up. Gives our CDs a much better sound and the DAB radio reception is good. The aerial set up is very primitive ie a trailing wire.
