TechRadar's verdict

"The Tornado is a bit like a Caterham – a full on experience that shuns compromise and delivers intensely real sound for its price. It will be too exciting for some and needs good system matching, but there’s no denying its appeal."
  • High-intensity, electric sound
  • Can be upgraded to an upsampling player for a £250 supplement
  • Handy volume control
  • Can sound a little bit exposed and over sharp with less refined discs
  • Some polish and finesse is lacking
  • French ergonomics
