Perfect for our needs


Bought this to replace a Keywood system in the kitchen. This Pioneer is not going to blow the roof off but is perfectly adequate for the kitchen with quality sound. Looks stylish and is easy to set up and use, would recommend. The staff at Richer...

Great sound for my wee studio


Bought about a month ago for a small studio and works perfectly. Didn't have a huge budget but still fills room nicely.

Simple,compact,good value


Wanted something basic for occasional use. Wasn't wanting anything with all the bells and whistles attached. Had a budget as I was buying other items. This came under budget

Good Little System


I bought this a month ago - one gripe is that the loudspeaker connections into the system are really fiddly and a nuisance as you're afraid that too much pressure trying to locate the connection will break it and render it useless
