Picked up one of these after work.

For £40 I'm very impressed.

I was originally looking for a bluetooth speaker system for the bedroom but wanted something a little more permanent, this fits the bill nicely. It's plenty loud enough for its purpose and actually sounds pretty good for the size of the drivers. As mentioned they are 2 x 20w. There are about 5 EQ presets, a superbass and 'loud' option. Play, Pause and Skip controls all work well to control the connected device. Bluetooth range is good.

It looks great!

My main annoyance is the remote control, you can't hold down the volume button to decrease/increase the volume, multiple button presses are required. But, it's not a big problem.

Well worth £40!

I have reserved one (thanks OP) but haven't been to collect yet - I don't suppose anyone could advise if it has a 'line out' could they, please?

My ideal use would be running the DAB, USB and Bluetooth bits through my fairly high end amp and speakers if so.

Thanks in advance.

I somehow very much doubt it, unless you really want DAB you would do much better buying a Raspberry Pi/Hifiberry DAC for streaming and internet radio, or investing in something like the Denon DNP720AE Network Streamer whereby all your CDs can be
Also, it is unknown what file formats it accepts, if you have a fairly high end amp and speakers you WILL notice the difference replaced with FLAC file equivalents.
between MP3 and FLAC believe me. If this does not support FLAC it will be a poor compromise against even a Raspberry Pi and DAC.

Are people getting a bit unrealistic here? It's a £40 hifi for a spare room or a kitchen ...

Hot for me. I bought at £60 a month or so back... Nice tidy and as loud as you like. Ideal for my kitchen. BT feature was what I was looking for without extra leads etc. £40 is a steal...

How does it have MP3 support if it doesn't have a USB socket or a CD drive ?
I'd like to see it stream DAB over the internet too.

Typical misleading information from PC World

Very tempted to buy this. I take it the wireless refers to the bluetooth and not the speakers. Are the speaker cables quite long? Had a samsung system and the cables were too small to set up on my big Ikea TV unit.

You stream from your device - that is what the bluetooth is for - it would work the same way as a bluetooth headset.

I think I need this but with computers in just about every room in the house, do it need it?

If it has internet radio and you can stream off wifi as well as bluetooth, it may be a winner at that price.

Anyone got one to review it a bit better?

Which means it does not have MP3 support! It is able to receive whatever from bluetooth, but natively it has no audio support whatsoever.

In other words it does not have "MP3 playback support" but "bluetooth playback support".

Of course not, but our friend doing all the moaning about what it HASN'T got for £40 possibly needs to know that CD's are becoming rather old hat.

I guess if you live in a one room house, the CD thing is an issue but as my house has more than one room, this will be good to listen to dab in the kitchen and... I have something that plays CDs in another room...

Annoying that there's to way to find out if that black rectangle on the lower left of the system is a USB slot or not

No mention of USB on Currys, PC World or the Sandstrom website and the Sandstrom website's manual download feature is 'Coming soon'

I think (but don't quote me on this) that the 'wireless' streaming refers to Bluetooth and not Wi-Fi over a home network

Anyone know if the 40W speakers refer to both of them together or is it 40W per speaker?

I only ask as I was eye-ing up this one from amazon until I saw this post:

Amazon ones cheaper but only major difference (apart from looks) is it has 15W speakers - but guessing its 15W per speaker.

Nope. It has DAB, FM, an AUX port at the back and plays USB stick MP3s.
