Advantages: CD text, Good Sound Quality, Looks Great
Disadvantages: No PC link kit
Perfect for someone who wants good sound quality at a reasonable price. I could really hear an improvement in the sound quality from my old stereo when I bought it. The CD text is great, I really appreciate having it, same with the RDS - a great luxury. One disadvantage is, it doesn't have a PC link facility, so you can't download Mp3's onto it, the next model up does though (but thats really its only extra).
This system was the first time I had ever used MD and I really like is, its nice to be able to make up your own compilations (with the track order that you want!) - and being able to name them is a bonus too (2500 characters per Md is ample).
The speakers are 30Watt, which is enough for me, the hi-fi is in a relatively big room, but the sounds fills it fine.
Radio - generally ok, but I find it a bit tricky to find a good reception (just a minor point though).
All in all, I would say, a good hi-fi as systems go, good value and some great features.
