Re: I disagree....
And this is where we get in to the usual issues regarding audio products; it's all subjective. As I said, having demoed the Teac alongside a similar product from Sony, the Teac sounded awful. Absolutely awful. And the mrs was grateful that i said as much as she thought it stank too and was worried I'd buy it regardless ;)
As to the speakers/mini system distinction, if you've got the room for a Zep' Air you have more than enough space for one of the systems I mentioned. Okay so it isn't an all in one package, but when you're spending the kind of money being discussed here, being able to move the speakers for better stereo separation is no bad thing in my book.
I liked the Fidelio but the mrs wasn't as impressed with the sound, although it was miles ahead of the other all-in-one systems we tried. There was another Philips similar to the Teac that was god-awful as well, worse than the Teac in fact. And as I said there was also a similar Sony. If those two products were also tested then there would have been a nice round ten products on test :)
