George, George Burrell, SE27 0SF inadequate power most purposes

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
clean compact well laid out controls
Bad points:
simply not enough power for anything but the easiest-to-drive bookcase spealers. Retreats into less-power-mode if pushed beyond around 60% of its volume control. Never enough to fill a room with sound (driving KEF egg-speakers and marching sub-woofer)

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Set up is straight forward.
Easy to use.
Sounds superb, but you need good speakers.
Incredible value for money.
Doesn't take up room, and minimal wiring
Bad points:
The original order was misplaced, but replaced very quickly.

Small but unobtrusive hum when cd is loaded, but absolutley no background noise once play is pressed.

HiFi Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Yamaha’s M170 DAB Micro Component System combines some of the latest radio technology and sound quality within a stylish and compact unit, finished with elegantly worked piano black speakers.

DAB provides a radio listening experience that is far superior to what you are used to. You enjoy a much wider choice of stations, digital sound quality, and reception that is much more stable and less subject to hiss and interference. DAB has many other advantages, such as the ability to also transmit text, so you can see detailed information about the programme contents.

With plenty of presets and a clear and easy to read display, as well as a logical and well laid out remote control it is simple to use and understand the M170.

With 3 extra inputs , 2 outputs along with a digital output this system can be linked to your DVD / TV / PC etc for playback of other sources through the system or to record onto other devices.
