Summary: The Sony CMT-MX550i is a elongated rather nice audio unit, it has DAB and FM radio, tray CD player, external audio in as well as the ability to play iPod and iPhone and to cap it off it can also play input from a USB stick drive for good measure.
Excerpt: If a star rating could be decided on the basis of looks and specification, the Sony CMT-MX550i would have pouched its five stars by now and we'd have moved on to something else. Just look at that photograph – the Sony looks purposeful but not intimidating. Its neatly integrated iPod dock is a particularly pleasing touch, and the speakers seem equally robust.
Pros: Extensive spec and visual appeal, deft and explicit with voices
Cons: The midrange is bullied from every direction, build quality could be better
