Excerpt: The DCS-363's front panel is a transparent piece of plastic broken only by the silver DVD drive door, USB socket and headphone output. It's an unfussy and stylish design. Its top-mounted controls are also easy to get to, but you won't be able to use them if you need to stack another hi-fi component on top of it. Like the JVC kit's remote, the DCS-363's has too many similar-sized buttons. They are better spaced and labelled, though.
