I was previously using a PHILLIPS MW-F777 game port midi-system to play my i-tunes, PS3, Wii and TV through. This stereo was absolutely awesome, with its liquid cooled speakers and deep base it made films, games and music 10 times better. However, I was looking for something that gave as much of a punch, looked smooth and sleek and could dock my i-pod directly. I was thinking a docking station for 90pounds couldn't really compare but it would do until I got a top name brand.... Oh how wrong was I??? This is a phenomenal piece of kit!! The sound is really clear and crisp and the bass is really heavy. Its loud, looks really good and well worth the price. Compared to my mates BOSE (which cost in excess of 350pounds) there is no difference in sound quality at all!!! I wont be upgrading this at all, but instead showing it off and turning it up!!! Well recommended and I can guarantee my friends will be on here soon purchasing the same thing!!!
