This is an excellent buy and I haven't regretted purchasing it for a second! Living in a flat, but liking 'gadgets' means you have to consider space and maximum product flexibility. This plays all my CD's downloaded or standard with fantastic clarity and sound quality. The easy to operate graphic equaliser an be set for whichever function or sound you require instantly. As it links through the TV, watching your DVD's through it gives a real 'home theatre' experience at a fraction of the cost of a lot of the home theatre set ups available which only have one purpose. The radio has lots of space to preset your favourite channels a bonus would be if it was digital radio, which it is unfortunately not, that said I've not had an issue with picking up good reception despite it being a notoriously bad area for that. The equipment itself is both compact and stylish. The player is minimalist looking in smoked glass and chrome, with electric blue lighting once on. It has it's own shut / off / standby if accidently left on / unused. There is a remote control which does everything from switching mode (i.e. DVD, Radio, CD etc) and allows you to mute, skip and all other features you would expect. The speakers were in fact what caught my eye with this product; they are rosewood and are both very robust yet compact and look incredibly stylish, in my opinion they look much better than the usual soulless black. There could always be a little extra length on the speaker cable but it is no different to average and that is just a personal preference as I like to change the room around quite frequently! This system was easy to set up and I have since changed TV and again it just plugs and plays with ease. It takes up hardly any space, looks good and does 3 major gadget jobs all for an extremely competitive price.
