TechRadar's verdict

"In the ‘toys for boys’ category, this scores highly and ergonomically it’s a mature example of its breed. However, it doesn’t seem to fit happily into either installation or main hi-fi system duty and so we’re left with doubts."
For
  • Vast internal disc capacity will swallow up most collections
  • Internet connection and on-screen display make operation simple
  • Flexible and fun.
Against
  • Compromised audio circuitry and mechanical noise make it a less than audiophile experience
  • Not likely to replace your CD player.
