Great performance for the price !


This is not a high end audiophile product and doesn't claim to be. It's an honest budget price system that performs well and is simple to operate.

Good mini system


I bought it to replace a similar Sony which had failed and this is just as good. CD player and radio very good, Audio in seems to need max volume setting but maybe my connecting lead needs upgrading. I do not have any devices which use the USB socket...

Great little system


Great wee mini system for my son's bedroom, sound quality is decent for the price, pretty much the only thing it doesn't have that would be handy is bluetooth - but you can't expect that for a system at this end of the market
