      Very helpful



      Go for it if you have the cash!

      This stylish addition to the Cambridge Audio family has a whole host of
      fantastically advanced, high-quality features which will blow any music
      lover straight into the 21st-century. From the new and improved elegant
      plastic casing to the machines excellent audio power, this is a device
      anyone with an interest in pure sounding music is sure to want and

      This is the area this particular model excels in. The quality of output
      is incredible, a level only found in a machine of this size and perhaps,
      price. Packing 80 watts of RMS across 6-channels, the player is capable
      of destroying ear-drums if you're not careful, and this should really be
      considered before and during a pissed party atmosphere!
      Its just as easy to blow the speakers as is it is your ear-drums with
      this machines high capacity sound output, so be careful!
      Based around a Dolby Digital system, if you're looking to splash out
      on pure quality, this is the player for you.

      The quality of the plastic finish is excellent and very high quality. This
      ensures no rattling or damage to the product with all that sound
      blasting out near-by. One thing I particularly like about the players
      exterior is its light-up digital display which only adds to the intense
      atmosphere of the device.
      The strength of the unit ensures its ability to hold items on top
      (nothing too heavy) and this can be very useful when installing the
      product in a cluttered space with little room.
      Similarly, there is no special requirement for the machines fan to be
      in clean air, meaning it can be pushed to the back of a shelf or
      cupboard without long-term damage.

      The model is supplied with a remote control which gives it a high rating
      in the ease of use and usability section. The control contains all the
      buttons needed for operation (also built into the main device), from
      the obvious play, pause, rewind, fast-forward to the less obvious
      mode and menu buttons.
      The volume control on the main device is very sensitive and operates
      smoothly when turned. It's one of the popular wide heavy units
      found on many Cambridge and other big sound company products.
      The device-to-speaker ports in the back are of a usual standard,

      Overall, a fantastic large device capable of extraordinary sound-based
      achievements. A must buy if you're into your serious music listening!
      Also, works great in public places, such as pubs and restaurants.
