Most helpful reviews

André, Hamburg/Germany Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
- For such a compact system, it's hard to imagine a better sound quality.
- High-quality speaker system.
- Looks great.
- Sturdy and well-manufactured.
Bad points:
- Playback via line-in is slightly delayed (by a fraction of a second), which means hooking up your TV to it makes movies out-of-sync.

BRIAN, Dover Casual listener

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The display gives you all the information about the track playing on the iPod. The remote is very good and the unit is small enough to fit on a shelf. The previous iPod dock sound was flat but now it's in true stereo.

Johannes, Bargain hunter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent Design and very good sound considering the size of the speakers. Of course they don't sound as good as my dad's Cambridge Audio Azur 650 with the KEF IQ 70, but for me, as a student with a small apartment, this is an amazing system, especially because it doesn't cost a whole lot. The cd player works really well but the motor is a little loud whenever the drive opens up but there is no hearable noise whenever the music is playing. I usually hear many different kinds of music, like Independent, Classic, Rock, Folk, R'n'B, House, Trance and sometimes a little Rap. The speakers manage all these kinds of music very well, but work best with Classic, Folk and other kinds of "quiet" music, so there is probably better system available for listening to Heavy Metal or Hip Hop all the time.
Bad points:
The only bad point is that the usb folder system doesn't work really well, because it takes about 2 seconds to show the folder name. Since I tried using an 8 gig stick containing about 50 folders, it was quite hard to find the folder I was looking for, but since I am using CDs mostly, this doesn't really matter to me and I am not sure whether or not there is any better systems available.

Bob, Blackpool Pop, rock or dance fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very good peice of kit. Very well designed and all the functions work perfectly.The Ipod function works very well and a dummy could work the remote control. My one moan is the sound quality, but I am used to listening to good quality seperates and this sytem is only for our kitchen. All in all, very pleased and good value for money.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very good sound quality for the price point. Proper speakers included, especially compared to the micro/mini systems of other brands.
Great design (of course depending on personal taste).
Pretty neutral sound, no ultra deep bass that tends to destroy some songs for me.
The iPod/iPhone integration is done pretty good, the display of the amp for example shows the songtitle et cetera.
DAB/DAB+ tuner built in, which is very nice at this price point.
Proper remote control who also doesn't look too bad (A detail many other brands will never understand)
Bad points:
Maybe could have more AUX inputs depending on what you plan to connect to it.
