Very good, clear sound, compact, small, it doesn’t take much space. Sony do not disappoint, as usual.

Did a fair bit of research before buying and so glad i chose the sony mini system – sound is amazing and it fits beautifully on the dresser under the tv – have already paired it with my amazon music and my son came home the other day, pressed a button on his phone and played his spotify music through the system – love it – still not worked out how to get the radio working and wondering if i threw the box out too soon without checking for an aerial?.

I was going to buy this initially but got a panasonic system instead only because it was cheaper. Both are small, look attractive and versatile with cd play, radio and bluetooth. However the sound is small too. Ok for a small room and the quality is not really hi-fi, but for the price i have no complaints. Both sell for £80 plus but only £60 if you get a warehouse deal.

I absolutely love this hi-fi system. It was everything and more than i expected. I really only use the cd player which is easy, the sound quality is great and i highly recommend this if you are on a budget and want a truly great music system.

The the money i paid a very worth while buy. The sounds great and looks great.

We have been delighted with the quality of reproduction, especially the bass. It has been a good purchase and has already provided much enjoyment.

Can connect everything bluetooth easily to unit. Great sound quality and plenty of usefull ports,usb in front and 3. Aerial at back of unit useless picking up radio stations. Mine only picks up local radio national stations poor reception. But the main bad point is the remote,there is no weight to it very light and also battery panel on back rattles. It wont open when using remote but it does irritate. In all a good unit let down buy a very cheap feeling remote.

Perfect; superb build and importantly excellent sound quality, which is what you expect from sony. Easy to set up and and use, and very compact. The extra bluetooth functionality makes it even more connectible. So pleased, purchased a second unit for another roomwould recommend this product.

What a fantastic little stereo so pleased.

Would be a very ideal purchase for price, how the system frequently switches itself off during use.

This item was not suitable for the intended use i had for it. The connecting cables were too short.

I have an audiophile system and people are being over critical of the sound quality because the preset equalisers need to be set to ‘classical’ and the base enhancement boost actually needs to be put on in this system. It has enough power and quality for any bedroom and minimum quality you expect from a. What i do not like is the terrible navigation of music and audio via usb.

➕ sleek ok sound for 12 watts lacks beefy bass but treble & general sound quality excellentit’s got six in blootooth dab & nfc➖ slow to operate fm tuning & dab presets are a pain to set upon setting timed menu it only seams to play cd’s dispute manual saying you can choose radio fm or dabhaven’t fully invested this issue yet but in a scan set up of dab presets it’s needed redoingoverall just about happy as managed to get a return unit via google for £49. 99 still seams a lot of money for 12w though & issuesdefiantly wouldn’t have been happy at full pricebut i do drive a hard bargain.

Bought is for my son’s birthday and he loves it.

Value for money-reasonable sound quality for such a small unit.

Problem with missing tuner button.

I purchased this principally to play my cd collection. The sound quality is fantastic. The controls and setting up fm etc are well set out. It is great value for money and exceeds my expectations.
