    Has anyone checked out the Hitachi AX-M68D yet? Dixons and Currys seem to have an exclusive on it

    http://www.dixons.co.uk/product.php?sku=961329

    I'm looking for a decent entry-level system with CD player and DAB for a small living room, and this comes in well below my maximum £200 budget. I've only come across a handful of reviews via Google (all of which are very positive), but I would rather trust advice from the helpful and knowledgeable folks here on AV Forums!

    I have the Ax-M70 version, which is pretty similar, without DAB

    and it has nicer looking speakers.......

    sound quality ? merely OK, not what I would consider Hi Fi at all, but ok for a bedroom / PC etc

    however, Im pretty sure the speakers are whats letting the system down, ( theyre rubbish - look good, sound poor ) so perhaps getting a small pair of other speakers, may do the trick

    a pair of £ 50 missions, from Mr richer, would probably elevate the sound to another level...........

    I like the look of the system, its small, cute, and seems well built............

    cheers for that info Buganna .. I came across a comment from someone who owns one who said

    "Sound is OK for casual listening, speakers are single driver so can't expect too much."

    If anyone could explain to me what a single driver is I'd be grateful! Would this negate the effect of upgrading the speakers to something better?

    no, just means that the current speakers only have 1 drive unit, which TRIED to work as 2 ! but fails !!!

    Single driver???? I'm pretty sure that means only one speaker in the box, it will be a woofer, I think that's how you spell it.If there was two speakers the other one would be a tweeter.
    The tweeter deals with the high's and the woofer the mid range & low sounds.

    My Daughter has one of these Hitachi systems, I have to agree about the sound, it's really good for her little bedroom, but it's not Hi Fi, take a cd to the shop & get a demo, you might be surprised.

    Yes as you say you could upgrade the speakers, Richer Sounds have a great choice at pretty good prices, but have a listen first.


    The D A B radio is brilliant.
