Consumer review (

good sound but gaps to long between album tracks


Bought this hi fi as reviews were looking favourable.but if you play cd.s which have continuous music between tracks in some instances then a 2 or 3 second gap appears which really does spoil the enjoyment of your favourite cd. Contact with Philips...

Good bang for buck, Good Sound Quality


This is a well spec'd system. I have found DAB reception good (however you need to extend the wire based antena), the CD excellent and AUX feature very useful.
