RicherSounds Hi-Fi D.O.T.W
Powerful sound from a compact system and all from one of the best hi-fi brands in the business - the Pioneer X-EM11 brings class to the budget mini system.
Whereas most mini systems in the class have around 2 - 5 watts per channel, the Pioneer X-EM11 boasts a class-leading 10 watts per channel. Whilst this won't worry more expensive systems, it's pretty impressive for a mini system of this size and price. Combined with the P Bass function and equaliser, the added power gives the tiny Pioneer a weight and body that you wouldn't credit from such a compact system. Whilst it won't rattle the windows it's plenty powerful enough for a kitchen, bedroom or study system.
Coming with both USB and 3.5mm inputs, the Pioneer X-EM11 is ideal for a range of sources both old and new. Plug your digital media device in via the USB and use the analogue 3.5mm input for any source with a headphone socket and you'll be able to access music from pretty much any device. Built into the compact casing is a CD player and FM radio, making it ideal as a desktop or bedside entertainment system.
With a full system remote control, this Pioneer mini is easy to operate. For private listening, it also comes with a handy headphone socket. As you'd expect, the CD player is fully featured, including track programming and the tuner comes with RDS and 20 station presets. The large, informative display and clear, simple control layout also make for ease of operation.
For a quality second system at a bargain price, the Pioneer X-EM11 is a tough act to beat.
