Despite bringing out some interesting gadgets, including this Flipdown TV and the DAB boom box, I imagine Morphy Richards will always struggle to get away from the association with kettles and toasters. New from the company this week is a CD micro system, but with a slight twist – it’s for wall mounting, aimed at those of us with a shortage of space in our living areas.
It’s got a nice contemporary look and a decent set of features, including an FM/AM radio, CD player, digital clock with sleep function and remote control, along with a USB port and SD card slot so you can connect your MP3 player or stored tracks to save you swapping CDs. The one drawback with wall mounted systems is the speakers – the subwoofer isn’t going to save you a lot of space (or look good on a wall), but the actual NXT 5W speaker units are very slim, and backed up by the 20W subwoofer, you should get a fairly strong sound to blast round the house.
It’s available now for around £129.99.
