I managed to get hold of the Technics DV290 system a few days ago. For this separates system I was asked to part with only 55 of my pounds.
Now, you may be thinking- It must be rubbish. On the contrary!
It combines a vastly imbressive spec with surprising ease of use! The units are made of metel, seakers of heavy wood with 17 cent subs that produce a warm, full bass, even at low volume. The 12 cent tweets offer clear and crisp sound which even seem to handle Metallica's 'Day That Never Comes' without much fuss.
The options are vast. Dolby PRO LOGIC and DTS are just two of them. A plethera of inputs on the back means anything from a PC to a Blackberry can be enjoyed on those booming speakers. DVD playback on the 5 disc changer is also offered. The 'Background' setting allows one to enjoy a distant sound, yet, with soft, deep bass. Ideal if one were entertaining a female or had the sort of neighbours who complain if you sneeze to loudly.
To sum up,
A wonderful, well built system which offers everything the music lover needs. Not to mention pleasent on the eye.
You can find these systems on websites like Gumtree and Ebay.
