Excerpt: For most people the hi-fi is dead. The days of needing two large speakers and a central unit to play music died when we switched to MP3s and AAC audio tracks from the likes of the iTunes store, or Amazon MP3. It wasn't that people didn't want CDs anymore, it was just a lot easier to enjoy music from your phone, or even dedicated MP3 player.
Pros: Sounds great, plenty of power, Spotify built-in, DLNA works brilliantly, plays futuristic spinning silver discs
Cons: No Wi-Fi built in, restrictive display makes things harder to do than they need be
