Sony CMT-MX550I review


The Sony CMT-MX550i may look purposeful and have an integrated iPod dock but it's far from competitive

Extensive spec and visual appeal ; deft and explicit with voices

The midrange is bullied from every direction ; build quality could be better

Far from as good as Sony’s capable of, and far from competitive

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

Sony CMT-MX550i


Sound quality (using my old Goodmans Mezzo 3 speakers - didn't try the supplied ones) , controls, user interface.

Goes 'idle' too quickly when CD paused. Please offer system without speakers for those of us replacing old 'separates' hi-fi systems.

Exactly as advertised, looks good, sounds good even with volume down low.

No headphone socket. I have my system in my bedroom, directly below my grand daughters, so after her bedtime, I have to turn it down low or off.

It does what it says on the tin

I believe that in this day and age a headphone output socket should be included in the spec - it isn't
