Compact but perfectly formed. . You will either be shocked or pleasantly surprised at the compact size of this unit – it reminds of those budget-priced midi-units you could buy from woolworths etc a few years ago; but hey, everything worksthe internal speakers are perfectly adequate for the job, but i’ve set this up in our converted attic and attached the unit to (via rca cable), a pair of behringer ms16 powered speakers – even better. 🙂 and there’s a switch at the rear for turning the internal speakers off. The cd/tapes/phono/radio work faultlessly, and radio reception is spot-on. I haven’t tried playback via usb or sd card as yet, but will at some stage. I had been holding out for a price-drop on a tascam unit which is £100 dearer than this unit and only has a single cassette player. So i’m now exceedingly pleased i didn’t plump for the tascam product. I honestly can’t find fault with this unit, apart from the fact that my family haven’t seen me for 3 days5-stars.

Brilliant item, speedy delivery.
Bought for 17 year old daughter to play her albums. Together with external speakers sound quality is pretty good, well worth the money. Her music is often blaring out, and although i would never get anything particuarly positive from her, because she’s 17, if she’s playing her records as much as she does, she must be pleased.
The unit is good and the sound is fine although my mother has. The unit is good and the sound is fine although my mother has found that a couple of the switches are difficult to use. They are stiff and it normally takes several attempts to make them work.
Radio: if you are used to digital tuning and presets manual tuning a bit of a pain. Fm reception is ok but perhaps not quite as good as the radio on my phone. Am is useless – even when you get a station the background noise is so high that no one would like to listen. The record deck, cd and tape drives work fine; i’ve not tried bluetooth. Producing mp3 files on the usb seems to work ok. Considering it has three inch speakers the sound is not bad but i prefer to play it through my tv. I tried playing it through an amplifier with mission speakers but it didn’t seem any better. It is certainly not quality high fi but it is a compact box which does what i want and is reasonable value for money.
A great little system for its size and performance providing you. A great little system for its size and performance providing you fit external speakers. I found the internal speaker inadequate if you require a reasonable sound from the aps available.
All you need in on compact unit.
First class purchase, well worth the money.
