Sony CMT-SBT300WB

 

This system that shows so much promise on paper, but fails to deliver in action. Frustrating

Strong, clear midrange ; Rhythmically agile ; Superb features ; Good price

Hard-sounding treble ; Bass could go lower ; Slow to respond to commands

The Sony CMT-SBT300WB is an impressive system on paper, offering stacks of ways to playback your music. But in doing so, and at such a good price, it feels like Sony has dropped the ball elsewhere.

I am very pleased with the HiFi. It appears to be good value for money and the ability to play music from other sources over WiFi is extremely useful especially as I can select music on my laptop, mobile phone or tablet without leaving my seat.

Take care!

I have not bought this product but I feel this is important. In buying choices the Amazon Marketplace sells a version without DAB radio. This ought to be mentioned by Which.

no problems

 

i noticed many reviews stating the unit is slow and always displays a "please wait" screen, mine doesnt? if i press the cd tray eject, it ejects instantly. the sound is fine, yes it lacks deep bass, but this is a compact hifi, not a full dj home party...

Gee, always the bad experiences write a review

 

How often do you see products with bad reviews and few good reviews? We have this unit and have been using for months. Its a lovely unit for the simple user wanting nice sound. The kids hook up easily their Bluetooth devices and stream their music,...

A good sound

 

For such a small (100 w) system it really sounds good. Only draw back is the speaker wires are too short (which I had to change). Compact and easy to fit in small places (office, den, etc.) the sound fills the room well and most stereo stations are...

Advertised Features don't work

 

The music streaming feature does not work on this player. Have been in contact with Sony support for 3 months and they have not even suggested a fix, they just seemed to drop the issue. Terrible support from Sony Australia. On the plus side the DAB...

Came with an intermittent fault. Do not expect any warranty support from Sony

 

The hifi came with a fault where it turns off intermittently. I first raised the issue with Sony customer support 7 months ago and have been riding the most frustrating merry go round since. The hifi has been to the service center twice. The second...

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

Excellent performance, but flawed

 

Surprisingly good performance from a reasonably priced system. However, let down by a dreadful instruction book, which only nearly matched the supplied remote control, and by the mean speaker leads which only allow a 2 metre spread between the speakers...
