I love my music. After food, water and all the necessities that you need in life there’s music. I don’t think I’d survive with out my music.

Because I can’t live without music I have to have a great system with power and great sound.

Aiwa NSX-SZ50
This system provides all the things you want in a great system, radio, 2 tape deck, 3 disc CD changer and an AUX.

The radio is easy to use and setup. It is digital so there’s no looking at a line and turning a knob until the red light comes up.

The tape decks. There are two, this allows you to do tape to tape recording. You can also record at high speed (dubbing) tape to tape. There’s also a cool button that lets you sync with the CD player so you can record without hiccups. One of the tape decks has auto reverse so you don’t have to get up to change sides.

The CD player holds three CD’s. when one CD has finished it just changes and carries on. It has all the usually things like, repeat, random and program. The CD player allows to eject the tray while a CD is playing and replace two of the discs.

The AUX port is to hole at the back of the system for phono leads. You can use this to plug other things into your stereo .e.g. your TV or a mini-disc.

It has 5 different equalization curves:
Rock: Powerful sound emphasis on bass and treble.
Pop: More presence in the vocal and midrange.
Latin: Accented higher frequencies for latin music
Classical: Enriched sound with heavy bass and fine treble.
Jazz: Accented lower frequencies for jazz-type music.

T-bass: This is a three stage setting that gives you deeper bass.

BBE: This is a three stage setting that gives you clean crisp high frequency sounds.

The extra features on this system make it even a better buy.
Sleep: it allows you to program it to go off after certain amount of time.
Timer: you can program it to come on at a certain time, stay on for how long you set it to and then go off.
Timer Record: it allows you to record something at a certain time of the day.
CD digital out: this is handy for people like me who have a min-disc.
There are also jacks for surround sound speakers.

The remote is good, it has all the buttons you want apart from a record button.

    Hi There M8. Interesting review. Hope you have better luck with your Aiwa than my family have had. Four of my family have owned them, and every one of them has broken. We now buy Panasonic.
