Good: Ease of use and great sound
Bad: I've had the display freeze on me on 2 units now!
Comment: Got 1 of these just before Christmas and on the whole very pleased, but! over a period of a month the display froze on it about 3 times and when it did I could not do anything with it - turn it up, down change channel etc. Took it back and got a replacement which seemed fine until today 22/01/07 this one froze again had to turn the power off to re-set. Anyone else had a similar problem?
Good: What I like: the sound, stupid! The DAB is a lovely addition too
Bad: Very little - the cost I suppose, but you get what you pay for!
Comment: In a previous life, I had Arcam CD and Amp, Mission speakers. However, the move to a smaller house meant that I had to give it all up - back to mini hi-fi muck. No longer, this puts the benefits of a medium-end audiophile system on my bookshelf.
The price is still likely to put people off. It ain't cheap, esp. when you have to cough up for speakers too (I went with the accompanying Arcam Altos). However, if you are into your music, this is for you.
