Might just be able to help you out (_;)

Where do you put a CD in?

Seriously it looks great but I'm old-fashioned and like CDs, great price but for me I'll keep looking.

Thought this was a good deal when you first posted it. Good price. Heat added.

Heat from me too

I quite like how it looks actually, hopefully it sounds just as good. might get one for my parents kitchen, they still have one where you tune stuff in with knobs

certainly is good looking

So are the speakers wireless as well or standard cabled?

I got this one from Ebay for £59.95 , brand new but the dock didn't work (and doesn't) for the kitchen, cut the speakers off and wired it into ceiling speakers, DAB is superb and hooking it up to Spotify on phone/kindle/ipad is a doddle, CD player as well.
Sounds great.

head added!!!

Does anybody know if I am able to output my Tv through the wireless speakers??

I tried this out in store a few months back. I had just bought a small all in one for the kitchen but if I hadn't I would have picked this up. It's a really nice design in the flesh, looks quite classy for the money and the sound was more than acceptable. I was mostly streaming MP3 tracks from my iPhone via Bluetooth but that is how I would use it at home and I encountered no issues at all. I'm still toying with picking up one anyway although I'm not sure where I can use it. I just think it is a steal at this price. Even the included speakers are decent.

The unit has an aux input so you can hook it up to your TV with a 3.5mm jack but the speakers to this unit are wired and not wireless.

See, I want something like this but with CDs cos I have about 1000 cds!!!

Ordered thanks op

Rip them all :P

What is traditional about this unit ? It does not have the mechanism to play any type of disc ! (although additional equipment could possibly be connected via the one auxiliary socket). The 40 watts quoted would most likely be TOTAL music power output, so overall really just a louder clock radio !.

Please shoot me down in flames if I have got this wrong, but my thoughts are as follows:

It is not wireless in the way that many people may understand wireless. The constant use of the term wireless in the blurb is highly misleading. Essentially this is a bluetooth stereo receiver, i.e. an amplifier with a tuner/tuners, that can also accept digital music either via Bluetooth or via the jack. The speakers have wired connections to the main unit. The only wireless aspect about this unit is its ability to work with Bluetooth technology. This does make it quite unusual, if not unique.
It mentions subwoofer dimensions in the blurb, but also states that is has 2 speakers, and the image suggests that this is definitely 2.0, not 2.1., so I have no idea how good the bass response is likely to be.

It also says the following:
Tune into your favourite stations using the convenient DAB radio feature, whether they're on the conventional FM frequency or streamed over the internet.
wtf?
I could say that this is badly written, or I could say that it is a deliberate attempt to make it seem more than it is. Probably most popular, if not all, FM stations, can also be found on DAB, but it is certainly not 100% overlap. They are entirely different technologies. You can't use DAB radio to listen to FM stations. You can only listen to your favourite "FM" station via DAB if they also broadcast on DAB.
More importantly, you certainly CANNOT use the DAB feature to listen to anything streamed over the internet. This is not an internet radio in itself. It can only become one if you use the appropriate app on your smart phone (e.g. TuneIn Radio) to stream to the unit via Bluetooth. There are literally thousands of internet stations that you cannot find on DAB: that's why Internet radios are/were so popular.
It does not have wi-fi connectivity.
I accept that it looks nice. I also accept that it is not a bad price. However, I think that it is probably possible to get a portable/rechargeable/mains Bluetooth speaker that
1. sounds as good, if not better, especially for casual kitchen use
2. will take up less space (often quite important for kitchen use)
3. can then also be taken outside for the patio/BBQ/etc.
4. Looks as good, if not better

It probably won't have a built-in tuner (though some do), but that is really pretty irrelevant if you are using the Bluetooth connectivity to connect a smart phone with God knows how many music apps on it.
