System Goals/Comments: This little system is perfect for occasional listening in the bedroom.
System Strengths: Inexpensive and sounds good in the small room.
System Weaknesses: Sound quality is fine considering its age and cost.
BUT:
The woofers in the KEFs have been replaced with cheap aftermarket ones of the same type so you can't crank it, but they work just fine at low to moderate levels.
Also, the tuner is surprisingly weak. Have to leave it in mono on most FM stations.
Video/HT System: None
