Sony Giga Juke NAS-50HDE: Doesn't live up to potential
16 December 2008
Summary: Should be better! I purchased an ex display model giga juke a year ago for £300. I loved the idea of the hard drive function and I thought it looked a very attractive piece of kit. Despite claims of accepting a wireless dongle, it only works with a certain type of sony dongle which I couldnt find anywhere!!! Uploading cds require the gigajuke to be networked to the internet.
Cons: no easy way to scroll through artists. Not wireless. Expensive
Summary: This machine is brilliant, the only problem I have is transfering music from my sony mp3 player NW-HD5 to the hard drive. I wish somebody could show me how, or maybe it can't be done. Please mail me if you can help at [MODERATED] And the volume control is wierd, you have to wind it round loads before anything happens.
Pros: 80 GIG HARD DRIVE
Cons: the volume control needs to be turned half way before it starts getting loud.
Summary: I bought the Sony giga juke hi-fi and was most disappointed.Although the sound quality is adequate for CDs it fails to achieve reasonable sound quality on radio reception.The juke box function fails on the basic task of name identification of individual tracks and entire albums which is not acceptable.The staff at Leeds Sony Centre were neither knowledgable nor helpful.The operating instruction booklet is 116 pages long and misleading.It is expensive and ineffective...
Pros: Adequate sound quality
Cons: Fails on almost every practical aspect.Fails to identify tracks and albums.
Summary: The automatic identification (via Internet) of music tracks has worked almost perfectly. The only music it did not manage to identify were some obscure Chinese popular music my wife picked up in Hong Kong. Connecting to the internet only involved plugging in the network cable from my home network and it was away. Copying CD's to the hard disc was rapid although not without some whirring noise. So far I am entirely happy with the product.
Pros: Being able to have all my CD's available at a touch of button
Cons: Nothing yet although I haven’t tackled accessing network music files yet
Summary: Ich habe das Gerät vor zwei Wochen gekauft und probiere es seitdem ständig aus. Hier meine ersten Erfahrungen. AUFBAU: Die Anlage ist in ca. 20 Minuten ausgepackt und betriebsbereit aufgestellt. Die Grundfunktionen lassen sich auch ohne Betriebsanleitung schnell finden und bedienen. ÄUSSERE WERTE: Das Gerät strahlt schlichte Eleganz aus. Im eingeschalteten Zustand lässt das Display erahnen, dass es sich um eine höherwertige Kompaktanlage handelt; ab ca.
Pros: Komplette Musikverwaltung und - archivierung
Excerpt: Contraddistinto da un elegante chassis nero e argento, il nas-50hde è il portabandiera della nuova idea di sony in fatto di alta fedeltà domestica. Oltre al sintotizzatore e al lettore cd,questo sistema compatto monta la suo interno un idsco rigido da 80 gb,in grado quindi di ospitare brani in formato mp3,atrac o l-pcm. E' possibile riversare le canzoni sull'hard disk attraverso il lettore cd, oppure da una sorgente esterna collegata agli ingressi rca.
Pros: presa usb,possibilità di registrare trasmissioni radio sull'hard disk,ampio display a colori,buona potenza musicale
Cons: Il prezzo è leggermente superiore alla media
