Excellent buy. I was so please with mine I bought another one for my daughter as a birthday present. It's smart and very modern and easy to operate.

I didn't allow for the door opening upwards as I had inteneded to place it on the lower shelf on my black glass tv unit. However, it now looks really good on the wall.

Completely portable, can move easily from room to room. Good sound and easy to use

CD player automatically goes to last track to inform how many tracks there are, then you have to press play again, unnecessary!

Great looking, stylish design, overall good value for money

Remote a bit weak and flimsy, buttons tend to be a bit confusing until you get used to them.

Philips MC235B/05

 

A very good looking bit of kit. This item can bring an extra bit of class to any room its put in. I personally have this item in my room, The sound level is just right for the size of my room and im yet to have any problems with this item.

Sound can easily get distored, However when put onto max volume the base goes off and the sound gets a better quality. On a low volume sound can appear to be lacking in quality, Ie, If playing the television through it.
