Costs £430, Honks at high volumes

What did you have for lunch?, I had a SCDV290. Pretty tasty performance & a pretty cute store girl too, though I’d prefer the latter, I guess I am permitted to write only on the Machine. I was passing by the bus depot on my way to college when I spotted a new gal in the Electronics store on the...

“Fantastic Stereo System!”

published 25/06/2007

Excellent quality throughout

No digital input

I was bought this stereo setup for my 21st birthday after months of listening to mates opinions and reading reviews. The stereo consists of 4 main units the amplifier, thetape deck, the cd/dvd multichanger and the radio tuner. Straight from the box it is quite easy to setup, with the manual...

Perhaps a bit dated these days.

This is a system I owned a while ago but as I saw an advert for it recently I figured it must still be going strong so I decided to do a review on it. The Technics SCDV290 set me back nearly £300 a few years back but I see it can now be purchased for the much more modest sum of £179.99. This...

“Simply the best!!”

Excellent System, more features than you will ever...

No microphone sockets.

I bought this system a few weeks ago from Curry's to replace my old Philips DVD player. I was attracted to this system by the fact it is a home entertainment system, a dvd player and a Hi-FI rolled into one. The system comes in two boxes, one with the main unit the other with the 5 speakers. Two...

My old Aiwa HiFi was a great little unit. However, after many years of sterling service (and thumping bass) it stopped spinning up CDs. Silence came. The silence has just been violently shattered with the purchase of the Technics SCDV 290 sound system. This separates system is comprised of four...

“Stylish and Technical”

published 26/03/2006

Brilliant sound quality

A lot of trust in electronics

I have owned this hi-fi since the beginning of the year and so far nothing has gone wrong however i am cautious. When i first got it i found the cables that came with it were not big enough for my living room so i had to buy some longer ones, so the ease if installation was fairly easy altough...

After some hours researching, reading and listening to various mini stereos at the normal high street stores I came across this Techics system. My previous system was Technics so I knew the quality would be good. (Didn't realise that Techincs and Panasonic are the same though!). My requirement...

“Worth the price???”

published 05/10/2004

Plays DVD-RAM, 5.1 output

Expensive

We choose this system mainly due to the DVD-RAM playback, as we own two DVD recorders using this format. For this purpose it's excellent, simply load the 5 trays with DVD's and watch away. A little annoying however that there is no eject button on the remote. Playback of mp3 and WMA is excellent...

“For Technics SC-DV290”

published 06/07/2006

Its amazing for the price

Its CD/DVD lens is not as durable

Its an amazing machine for this price. Undoubtfully quality of sound. simply unmatchable for the price. I would prefer Technics over any other sound system. Its a complete Home Audio & DVD Surround system. The speakers are from space. The only issue is the durability. The CD/DVD lens and the tape...

I've had the system for 2years now and I have not had any problem with it. I normally load 5 disc at a time in the system, though, while change the disc, you can hear the mechanical parts of the changing tray moving and making cracking noise. Beside this the system is pretty handy, value for money and easy to use, Technics has a reputation of manufacturing reliable products but at the end of the day it is still electronic that can break down at anytime, there is always element of luck in purchasing electronics. The only problem associated with the product is getting a suitable hi fi stand for the product, beside this is a great product.
