I used to have this system and I was very happy with this. Amazing for parties because you could attach your ipod to it which makes it incredibly easy to change music etc. I think the speakers are also really cool because of their brown/ wood appearance so I think it is always nice to display them. I do think that the main body is quite bulky though however this can be hidden in a more discrete place. Also the bass is really good so you can have a variety of music playing really well. I personally don't like the buttons very much because I found that they sometimes got stuck when using, however I was able to return and replace the system with the guarantee. I think this system best suites a bedroom rather than living room but that's a personal preference. Also be careful as to not overheat the system by placing things on top of the main body.
A nice stylish and usuable system, the HX70BTR has wooden speakers. The Sony HX70BTR has a USB port, Bluetooth and an iPod docking station. Delivers a massive 150 W RMS, the HX70BTR will give some great bass.
This system has a good sound, is good value for money considering its sony, has all the necessary functions and the iPod dock is a perfect addition to this. The remote control is complicated and could have been thought about, the little things matter; but is still recommended.
A nice design, good finishing on the wood, goos sound quality, and brilliant functions; the Bluetooth, USB, and the iPod, not easily controllable since the remote control as i mentioned before is not the best design.
Overall i would suggest this as a good micro-system, but once again you have to look around why settle for this when you could maybe even pay less for a louder system, but you could compromise the sound quality; guess its down to the individual...
