No divx as far as I know...

Hi,
I bought one of these recently and took it back mainly because it wasn't the dimensions advertised as I was going to mount it in the kitchen. Its actually 32cm deep and its 100W RMS output not 130W. I quickly tested the dvd player which was ok but it couldn't pick up main radio stations on fm or DAB which maybe just might be my location. And no it doesn't do divx.
Cheers

Thanks for that Rob, how much did you pay for it ? regards to the dab was the ariel connected properly ? and also could you watch the tv through the speakers...Hmm maybe will collect tomorow anyway and test it out !

FWIW Wharfedale is a "brand" used for Argos' own products so you won't find an identical one anywhere else for price comparison.

The 400HT is made by Vestel (a big Turkish OEM for home electronics) so I would expect quality to be acceptable but not great based on their other products and support beyond what Argos can offer to be mediocre.

Very good price considering what you get, you'd be hard pushed to find a mono DAB radio for under £40, and for not much more than that you are getting a dvd player, dolby decoder and heap of speakers thrown in.

Cheapest "home cinema" systems seem to be from £40 i.e.

I imagine any of these will do an adequate job, but won't blow your socks off.

Hi I paid £59.99 as its been discounted for a while. I used the aerial that came with it which was a telesopic one that plugged into the back. I've never really used DAB before so wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I'm not sure about watching tv through the speakers (i know what u mean) as I didn't get that far. As for quality its wasn't the best and wasn't the worst I've seen. Some of the buttons were on a slopey part at the top which also didn't meet my requirements.
