  • Summary: I have a large CD collection and no CD player (apart from the drives on my PCs) and as a result I haven't listened to some of my music for a long time. It's been sitting in boxes with me raiding to do the odd rip. Last time I looked at devices to integrate my CDs into my digital collection the prices were way beyond my means, so I was really surprised to see what looked like a capable piece of kit at an affordable price.
  • Pros: Easy to use, excellent range of audio outputs, compact size, great value.
  • Cons: documentation not perfect

Excellent but you do end to be IT literate.

  • Summary: Right here we go. I have a large number of cd's all alphabetically stored by artist. I needed a convenient system to rip, store and play them. I am also a very keen radio listener. Obviously the X10 would appear to be right up my street. And after having for three weeks it certainly is. Rips with ease. Find the album art with ease. But boy oh boy the the manual is completely useless PLUS you need the latest firmware and data base.

Customer service? Mmmm.

  • Summary: I commented on a review of the Cocktail X10 on Trust Pilot a little while ago and it seems to have disappeared. Strange. I'll keep this simple. The X10 is a good digital music player. But there are problems. 1. Don't bank on using the web interface unless you are happy to wait ages for it to do most things. This is not a wi-fi problem. 2. It is now a year since adding an album to a playlist via the web interface stopped working.

Just right for me !

  • Summary: The product is just what I was looking for. I debated buying a more expensive product from another source but decided to gamble on this item as most reviews where positive. I would have given 5 stars BUT the lead connections aren't up to standard. The plug and transformer do not fit snugly and they part at the slightest knock and therefore the 'machine' shuts down.

Just Great!

  • Summary: This is a really easy to use piece of equiptment. getting to the artwork either from the Free DB Database, or using your PC ( I also bought the dongle) is nice and straightforward, as is updating track listings which are sometimes not found or spelt incorrectly. I have not used the onboard amplifier as I have connected the thing via toslink to my Cyrus DAC, and have ripped all files in FLAC format.

Great idea when it works. Lousy firmware updates with lots of glitches and non-existent UK customer service when it breaks

  • Summary: Great idea when it works. Lousy firmware updates with lots of glitches and non-existent UK customer service when it breaks. I got just under two years' worth of enjoyment out of this before I hit automatic firmware updates, which led to a completely non-working unit. No email response from Cocktail Audio UK. No customer service response. Shame - one email would have kept my loyality. Brennan here I come.

Great product

  • Summary: I had this item in my basket for a while because I thought it was not worth the asking price then I got notification that the price had been reduced . I decided to buy it and give it a try. It was a great decision on my part. It is well worth the price and all the things it can do is unbelievable . I have two big plastic boxes , one full of cd's and one full of music tapes all of which will fit in this little box. I would recommend it to anyone.
