John, Stevenage

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
excellent integration of the various media formats so they can be played on one machine - Would definitely call this a serious and weighty music machine. Very substantial sound for a relatively small box with bags of Oomph but - why oh why are there no tone controls? Major mistake.
Ipod & CD work beautifully on it. Not yet tried wireless connection. Remote control works well, bit jumpy on volume control though.
Bad points:
Too much bass sometimes - if only there were some tone controls.
No onboard battery so if you unplug from mains you have to reset the clock every time you power it up.
Radio reception requires a mass of aerial spaghetti hanging out the back - spoiling the beauty of a well designed black box(imagine that next to your bed!). The "ipod style" of rotary function control is clumsy and certainly not user friendly.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great radio streaming, great sound, easy to use once set up. Works fantastically well on UK boradband internet.
Bad points:
Difficult to set up due to poor user manual (maybe I'm just getting old). Doesnt charge the Iphone 3G when connected to the docking port. Quite expensive. Needs a larger buffer in lower speed internet connections (eg Africa where I spend half my time).
