Advantages: compact and nice looking
Disadvantages: manual controls refuse to work sometimes
My husband bought me this for Christmas. I was really chuffed when I saw what it was. It looks nice and it sounds pretty good too.
You have a tape deck on the bottom which is useful for listening to those old compilations you made years ago!! Tape cassettes are so old fashioned but I still like to listen to some of those old tapes I bought when I was younger...
The system is lightweight and easy to move about....it sits neatly on quite a narrow bookcase. Sound quality is really good.
I do have an issue with it's manual controls though. Sometimes they just won't work and if I have mislaid the remote control (often done) It is hit and miss wether or not manual controls will work. (usually a miss) I cannot work out why this should be and I ought to have got hubby to return it.
The lid on the CD player is one that flips up on top and not a slidey out one. If you are like me you will find this annoying cos you will end up putting stuff on that lid and each time you wanna change the CD you have to move said stuff out the way!
Even so, I think for its money its a neat system. Maybe I am just pleased to be able to play my old cassettes again!
Summary: Wonky manual controls but good remote
