Philips DVD Micro Theatre MCD183 is rated
Rated 4 out of
Good value - excellent service
Decent little system for the price. We didn't need a big 5:1 set for the size of room.
We used this set to tie everything together [TV, PVR, mp3, DVD, etc] whic it does very well.
Easy to set up, most cables are included.
It has a number preset sounds rather than a proper equalizer which means you have to fiddle about to find the best one for what you are playing, but that's clearly specified in the ads and what do you expect when bigger setups are 2 or 3 times the price.
Major gripe is the dimness of the display panel.
Philips replaced the first, but second one not much different, you can't read it from more than 4-5 feet.
Must say how helpful and quick Philips were with tech support and exchanging the unit. Top marks; dial the number and speak to real people.
Only other problem is the mp3 menus which don't show all of the track name.
All in all, a pleasing product and a very good service.
