When discussing the parameters for this system, we all agreed that there is a huge group of consumers who have not opted - well maybe not fully - for the MP-3 revolution. They have a huge collection of CDs that they play regularly and have also started to realise that their collection of LPs is full of treasured memories and needs to be 'dusted-off' so to speak.

We also believe that this group wants to upgrade to a system that will be easy to install and operate, deliver a significant performance improvement on previous systems they may have owned, but still offer great value for money...and of course last forever!

Well we may not be able to fulfil that last request, but we think we can on everything else, even surpassing expectations. This is a very balanced system using great brands that really deliver and meet the brief outlined above.
