I bought a Denon DM7 system on the back of reasonable reviews in What HiFi for it and the similar DM5. I chose it over the DM5 because it has a balance control, and I knew I might not be able to mount the speakers in the ideal position to get a balanced sound. Other than that I wanted everything to work from a remote control, to have a CD multichanger and an RDS radio. I've since added a cassette deck. The sound is reasonable, its fairly easy to use and its compact so I'm happy.
