      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I guess it was an impulse buy really. I hunted around all the usual stores for a replacement for my old Sony midi Hi-Fi. I liked the idea of compact speakers, but in truth did not think much to the sound quality from this set up in any of the in-store demo's. The bass was pretty tight from the dual-driver sub-woofer, but the mid-range lacked punch & power. The top-end treble was not very transparent either. But as with most Sony products, design is way-up there. The main speakers take power from the sub-woofer to run groovey illumination of the radiator cone. This can be set to virtually any colour to match your mood or decor! Personally, I would have preferred a better speaker over the rainbow colours. What is worth knowing, is that the sub-woofer & main L & R speaker set up can be driven from other equipment. The tuner-amp supplied actually also includes a very respectible amp too, so I ended up ditching the technicolor boxes (which ended up with the sub-woofer on the living room video player). The tape deck is a tray-loader - like a CD-drive. So far no tape screw-ups. I think that there must be different configurations of these components on the market. I have the CD / tuner / amp and separate tape player. There was an optional MD deck too, but I have no interest in that format. At the end of the day, I did not buy this as a serious hi-fi system. It's cool, simple design looks good, and the performance is good enough for 'around the house'. I think that if powerful, quality audio was my goal I would have been disapointed. As it is, I am just a bit mad that I missed a deal to get a cool marble stand thrown in for the same price.
