Sony are looking to spruce up your tunes with a little help from their latest hi-fi system, the CMT-MX550i. Tech Digest got have a play about with it yesterday and came away suitably impressed by its lush tones and sleek looks.
Featuring a similar look to Sony’s recent batch of “monolitihc” Bravia TV’s, the CMT-MX550i has a classic feel to its design, with swathes of grey and black topped off by a no-nonsense angular look. With a fold out iPod dock on the front and space for a USB stick for mp3 playback, it’s a tidy little unit that shouldn’t seem out of place in most homes.
Sound quality was pretty special, pumping out 60W RMS output with a solid bass sound that didn’t overwhelm mids and trebles.
With a DAB radio and CD player also included, the circa £200 price tag seems very reasonable, so well worth a look when it launches in July.
