Pioneer are launching a new micro Hi-Fi system called the X-HM50 built “with the intention to satisfy music enthusiasts that value classic design and solid build quality”.

Featuring an iPhone/iPod docking station, CD player, FM/AM radio and support for USB and auxiliary line inputs, it could pretty much stand as a one-stop solution for all your music formats.

Sound quality looks as though it’d be pretty reasonable too. Bass-reflex stereo speakers with 120 mm woofers and 20 mm soft dome tweeters pump out 50 watts of output per channel, with 6 equalizer presets (Flat/Game/Classic/Pops/Vocal/Jazz) to suit most tastes.

“The new X-HM50 is designed to meet the needs of iPhone and iPod users as well as CD devotees who enjoy listening to their favourite music in outstanding quality at home. Thanks to Pioneer’s advanced sound concept, the space-saving system delivers room-filling hi-fi sound,” explains Philippe Coppens, Manager, Pioneer Europe. “Our engineers’ design efforts resulted in a sophisticated blend of style and advanced technology that adds a touch of class to any interior and will delight the most discerning listeners.”

Grab the Pioneer X-HM50 now for £299.
