Garry, Waterlooville Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Realy Goog looking system , and the sound matches the looks , super smooth valve sound from a digital input , brilliant
Bad points:
keeping that chrome clean , and you need to be carefull with your speeker choice as the power from a valve amp is low, so you require efficient speekers to fully enjoy the system .

David, Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent sound quality and very cool. Sound quality via iPod dock is fine, but via a decent CD player it is exceptional given the price. One point though - for the best sound quality replace the stock ECC85 valves with something better. I am using some new old stock (NOS) Telefunken ECC85s and the difference in sound quality is startling.

Juan, Murcia / Spain Classical music lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lovely look & sweet sound, this "toy" has made my mind up for valves.

Absolutly perfect for small sitting rooms or reading corners.
Bad points:
There is not a high res USB input 24/96 or more for direct PC, Flac, etc.

iPod dock becomes always On when you turn on general switch.

iPod level seems a little low.
