A Home Audio Kit : Gear4,CDM-100


Have you noticed that the vast majority of products designed as accessories to enhance the capabilities of an iPod are larger than the Apple's ubiquitous digital player?

Gear4 CDM-100 review


The Gear4 CDM-100 CD micro system adds FM/AM, alarm and sleep mode to a neat all-in-one package.

Looks good, I have had lots of complements about the way it looks. Its much more appealing to look at than my more expensive Hitachi mini Hi-Fi. Quite compact. Lovely little speakers.

No USB point. Does not automatically take control of my Iphone I have to select the music I would like to use through my Iphone first. Could have a slightly louder volume.

Fantastic sound for the money and attractive looking. Very easy to use, even my 8 year old daughter can operate it. Has both an aux input and an ipod dock, so any MP3 player will do. Bought it for my daughter's bedroom, but wouldn't mind having one...

none at all
