Advantages: Good value for money
Disadvantages: Tinny sound with heavy bass tracks
We recently decided to get a new stereo system for our bedroom and did not want to spend a lot of money, basically we did not want to exceed £150 and this fit the bill as it cost us £129.99 we actually bought the BX77 version which is fundamentally the same just a newer version. The main benefit of this sysetm for me is that it comes with an integrated docking station for my ipod so I can play all of my stored music on through the system without having to tarnsfer over any of my music to a seperate hard drive. In addition it has a cd player so I could also access any albums that I have not loaded onto my ipod yet. It also comes with a DAB radio however I'm not very impressed with digital radio as even in Northampton the signal is not always great so I rarely use this feature of the stereo.
Set up was very easy, there are various ipod inserts to allow you to fit a range of ipods depending upon which one you have. It is easy to access your ipod to scroll through your options or you can use the remote that comes with the stereo although obviously you have to be close in order to see the ipod screen.
For the money the sound quality is pretty good however the speakers do sound a bit tinny when dealing with music that has a lot of bass, I guess for the price this is to be expected and if you want a really sharp and precise sound then you will need to splash more cash however for general use it sounds perfectly fine.
It is a rather functional design rather than spectacular, a bit square and boxy, again it sort of reflects the price, however the controls have a nice solid feel to them and I did not find myself worrying about damaging them.
For the price I'm happy with the overall feel and sound of the stereo, whether playing through the ipod or a cd it is very functional and good value for money.
Summary: Not bad at all
