Stan, Aberdeenshire Music listener

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
This is a very attractive and well made machine. Set up was made more difficult because of a mismatch between the equipment and the manual, though this was resolved through very good support from the manufacturer.
Bad points:
The only downside is the imminent demise of FM. This is a problem given the quality and the price of the product, this is not a throw away item.

Lisa, Derby

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I love my Alfie, he lives in my bedroom. The sound is great and design is sleek much better than the Bose system. Great, just what I hoped it would be.
Bad points:
Sound doesn't appear to be as good when listening to radio, may just be me.

Jojo, Dublin Music listener

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Great sound, small and stylish, easy touch controls and cool display
Bad points:
The non-functioning Remote Control: looks completely at odds with the system and does not respond or rather correspond with the system. As many of the set up features must be activated using the remote control (clock display, channel settings, disc options etc) it is a significant disadvantage that it does not function most of the time. I have tried consistently to set up the clock and input channels onto the radio and adjust the sound ---- but as all these require the remote buttons to work i have been unable to do so -----so i have a great system but cannot use all of its functions!!

HiFi Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

You name it this sleek audio/video system plays it, young ALFiE’s not a fussy sort. The integrated iPod dock means the entertainment hub is ready and waiting for your Apple portable’s tunes, while the rear panel’s auxiliary-in socket means you can swiftly hook-up an MP3 player. CDs, of course, are catered for – including recordable discs – while movie fans can drop in a DVD, letting ALFiE provide vision as well as sound. Happy to lounge in any room in the house, the Roth Audio system’s radio alarm and bundled remote control mean ALFiE is especially handy in the bedroom department.

Wherever you choose to lay down with ALFiE, however, you can rely on Roth Audio to supply high-quality sound and vision. The unit’s built-in audio engine is no slouch, powering out a total of 40 watts, and using a 2.1 amplifier and speaker combination to provide room-filling sound. Sneak a peek under its chassis, and you realise the use of an ever-so-clever downward-firing subwoofer helps beef-up the tracks, while allowing ALFiE to maintain a trim figure.

Adjustable bass and treble means you can tone down – or tone up for that matter – depending on your mood. Naturally, for a machine from the tune-loving people that created the sublime-sounding Music Cocoon MC4, this unit doesn’t just pound out a big sound, it also presents a beautiful sound – Roth Audio may always do competitive prices, but it will never do cheap sonics.

No home entertainment system is complete – though more than a few claim to be – without support for DVD. So whether you invite Freddy into your bedroom, Shrek into your playroom, or Audrey and Gregory into your wet afternoon, ALFiE’s selection of video outputs provide sharp images, while the 2.1 sound engine backs up the pictures with thrilling movie sonics.
