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.

Pros: Extensive spec and visual appeal, deft and explicit with voices
Cons: The midrange is bullied from every direction, build quality could be better
