Smart Guidance in Buying Sony CMT-S20 DAB

Worth for cash – but be well prepared for a couple of snags. This system took a few of times longer than typical for primary shipping, as it was sent from germany. Not a problem – but when i opened it up i located that the most important unit has a european two-position plug. Amazon really should at least mention that, and offer the preference to acquire a uk adapter plug when obtaining, if not offer one particular absolutely free. Then i appeared at the running directions – or instead, the manner d’emploi, bedienungsanleitung, handbook de instrucciones, instrukcja obslugi, istruzioni per l’uso, and gebruiksaanwijzing. That is appropriate: there are individual manuals in french, german, spanish, polish, italian and dutch, but no english. I managed with the french, and you can down load an english handbook as a pdf from sony’s united kingdom website. That claimed, the system by itself is quick to set up and has excellent seem top quality. With dab radio bundled for just over £100, it’s extra than fair worth for money.

    Value for money – but be prepared for a couple of snags. This system took a couple of days longer than normal for prime delivery, as it was sent from germany. Not a problem – but when i opened it up i found that the main unit has a european two-point plug. Amazon should at least mention that, and offer the choice to buy a uk adapter plug when purchasing, if not supply one free. Then i looked at the operating instructions – or rather, the mode d’emploi, bedienungsanleitung, manual de instrucciones, instrukcja obslugi, istruzioni per l’uso, and gebruiksaanwijzing. That’s right: there are separate manuals in french, german, spanish, polish, italian and dutch, but no english. I managed with the french, and you can download an english manual as a pdf from sony’s uk website. That said, the system itself is easy to set up and has good sound quality. With dab radio included for just over £100, it’s more than fair value for money.

      No frills micro hi-fi, but well priced with decent sound. The cmt s220 is simple and small compact micro hi fi (i have the fm version)it’s a low cost system, but has enough of the basics covered, and sounds a bit better than the price might suggest. The main unit houses the cd drive (a tray eject type), a simpe lcd display, with a front usb port on the lower left hand sidethe top part has button controls for the hi fi (play, pause, eject and eq etc so you are ok if you misplace the remote)connectors are minimal, 2 x speaker outputs, an audio input, and a socket to fix the aerial connectorother notes:* usb playback supports mp3, wma, and walkman formats (you can also use the port to charge usb devices)* you get a remote controls with it too* output is rated at 10watts rms (2×5 watts) per channelit’s a small size overall the main unit is about 17cm wide and 21cm deep so it’s easy to fit in a tight space or a kitchen for example. As others have noted the speaker cables are not that long, but i suspect most will not be seperating the speakers much. Build is basic but adequate at this price point. Sound wise it does a fairly good job with the bass boost and presets on eq it’s above average compared to some units i have tried. Mid range could be better but for the rated output it’s really quite good overall more than loud enough. There is nothing fancy on the sony at all just the essentials here cd, and usb playback with the radio (reception is fine for fm/am) the dab model is a bit more expensive (i’ve not tried this) but it’s the same unit for both options. At this price it’s a decent purchase for a budget micro system. I have mine in the shed and it’s been working with no problems for months.
