This Hi-Fi is one of the best i've ever had! I got this over 2 and a half years ago for a christmas present and it still sounds as it did on day one!! One thing i love about this Hi-Fi is that it can hold 5 cd's at one time and play them one after the other without me having to push a button to go to next cd. The sound quality is fantastic even for tapes (yes this machine plays tapes!) and there are many different pre-set settings to alter the sound quality for example you can set it for pop to get the most out of pop songs, heavy for metal and drum and bass songs, classic for classic music etc etc. The radio is easy to use and easy to store stations with. There is a X-Surround button which in short makes your music bounce more around the room to create a surround sound effect. There is also the normal bass boost button for more bass. The Hi-Fi plays loud so its best to have the volume low when using it unless you want your skull to explode. Overall i was very impressed with this Hi-Fi and the fact its lasted so long i'm a metal music fan and in the past Hi-Fi speakers start to sounds all fuzzy after heavy use, these still sound like new. Overall score 8/10 just wish it had a DAB radio.
