This is one of the best mini disc hifi's i have owned. I bought one before this one from sony and it was no way as good as this one.It has a great editing system for recording and recorded mini discs, you can easily delete songs or edit the length of the track. It is tricky to get the hang of but once mastered it is a doddle. Manual is very helpful.It looks nice too and pumps out some base and with the dsg button on the remote it is easily based up! Out of all sony stereos i have purchased over the years this has got to be one of the best! 10/10!
