Hi - your deal finder software is slightly off-alignment! It suggests that John Lewis are selling Muso-2gens for £49! (sadly it's only replacement grilles).

Barely any of these are what I'd describe as a system. Only two have a source AND speakers, the rest have to have something added to make them a system. A set of active speakers is not a system, it's a pair of speakers with no sound coming out of them without a source!

I am looking for a preferably quality all-in one system with CD (and SACD would be a definite plus). Airplay2 would also be a nice plus via ETHERNET, but it MUST be free of any radiation devices: definitely NO Bluetooth and NO wi-fi. I am making my living space Bluetooth free and wi-fi free (not just because Bluetooth is lossy and generally low quality). Marantz used to make some systems that would be perfect - e.g the Melody series - unfortunately, they now come with Bluetooth, which rules them out. Any suggestions?

The Marantz M-CR612 is a nice unit and won a EISA award in 2019/20 for best compact stereo system. Normally if you connect an Ethernet cable it turns off the wireless board. As for Bluetooth everything has it built in these days but if you don’t select that input and don‘t enter pairing mode….you should be good to go 🙂
