the sound is very good, especially when woox level 3 + incredible surround sound is activated. very user-friendly, it has a sleep timer, it can shuffle songs on the CDs available on 1-3 cd decks. It has a numerous radio station database, 40 entries, digital cassette player, its size is very small. also, there's a 'dim' button which can be used to control the amount of light turned on on the player. its sound clarity is still good even if we use an external speaker, such as headphones, or active speakers.
the only bad thing, imho, is the cd changer, it's somehow very weak, after +/- 3years of use, the cd changer will start to get very weird, sometimes, it can't open particular number of cd deck, and the cd changer will make some strange sound, at the end, the cd changer will not work/open anymore at all. and the cd changer will still make strange sounds even if the player is turned off, so you have to plug off the power cable to make it stop making weird noises. i brought it to a local authorized philips' service center to repair it, and it doesnt cost so much, it is only about +/- 5 pounds.. the repair man will probably replace the rubber changer belt..
