I have owned a Cyrus Amp for 15 years now, with complete reliability and extremly satisfying sound performance. When I saw this amp/speaker 2.1 combo, at this price, to me it was a no-brainer (My Cyrus Amp cost me 600 notes new, 15 years ago, and believe me, it's worth every penny!). I must admit, a Cyrus 2.1 System, for 30 quid - I wasn't expecting very much at all, to be truthfull. Boy, was I shocked when I opened the box. Finished in Piano Black, this little system looks great! But that wasn't my only surprise. When I plugged in my BlackBerry Bold, chose a Floyd track from The Division Bell, switched the Cyrus Amp 2.1 speaker system on and hit the play button, WOW!! The strength of the bass nearly blew me into the next room! This Baby has got a knock-out punch! And the treble is so crisp and clear. I could hear each pluck of Gilmore's guitar, as if he was in the room with the band playing live. I was, and still am gob-smacked. I've played a variety of music, from Nickleback, to Clapton, to Mozart, to Hendrix, to Sinatra, to Pink Floyd, to the Beatles, to Pearl Jam, etc... With a slight adjustment to the treble and bass of course. How can Play sell this system for this price?? If I saw this package in an Audio Shop for a hundred and fifty notes, I would be very tempted to buy it then and there, seriously! I'm not saying it is equal to my 600 quid Cyrus, but is not far behind (And my 600 quid Cyrus didn't come with any speakers!). I'm hoping to get an i-pod 160gb classic for my birthday, or if not, Christmas, so that I can take full advantage of the remote control, which by the way, is ok but nothing special, but for the price I can live with it. To be honest with you, I have a good, multi-function learning remote control, so I don't really need the acompanying remote, accept to program it with. This Cyrus package can be used with my computer and with my tv too, so I've bought a second, and may well be buying a third one at this price, for the bedroom, just because it is such a bargain. I might just buy a forth to use outside for barbeques. Top marks to Cyrus, yet again, and full marks to you Play.com! A well earned FIVE STARS, AT LEAST! Don't waist any time - buy one! It'll be the best 29.99 you'll spend this year! Or maybe even this decade!! (P.S. I can't believe how many !'s I've used, but Cyrus and Play deserve every one of them!)! ***** !
