    Hi People

    Need some help. My parents was a stereo system, they just need radio and cd on it as chances are they will just use it for cds.

    My dad said he has a budget of £50. I am happy putting £20 to it if I need to.

    I did suggest getting a MP3 player and small speakers and that way I can put all his cd on the MP3 player. He said he would rather just have a stereo.

    Can anyone recommend one? decent sound etc. I have had a look online and for some reason the prices of these things have gone through the roof.

    Cheers

    Hi

    I know I am not going to get anything great at that price, however, that is the budget I have to work with. Have already looked at the Argos options.

    I appreaciate your response but filtering the Argos site for upto £60 does not really help me.

    Cheers
    Colin

    Anyone else suggest which stereo?

    The best option is to buy a full system of used separates out of your local snips. Anything new at that price is going to be complete rubbish and a waste of money as it won't get used.

    Just an idea...

    Stick a Wanted Add here.

    You never know what might turn up. In any case I concur with Mr Pig, used is surely the best option with such limited funds.

    Also, check out ebay, here's a prime example .
