I appreciate your review, but its not clear to me how mus is the bad sound score realtive to the price in time of the review process. Your web is now praising and suggesting the Denon D-M38DAB wich shoud be for £300. I know it is some time but could you compare the sound of these two system. The situation is: At present the Philips MCD900 (non streaming version) is for about £300 and it is offering 'almost' what I want. Support for AAC, OGG and FLAC wich does not offer any other system I found so far. Is the sound of the Philips worst than the one of the Dennon D-M38?
In our opinion the Denon D-M38DAB sounds better than the Philips, regardless of the price difference.
Not in the least, dq46. We would never let our emotions get the better of us in that way. The fact is, this system just doesn't sound very good and has other flaws.
As you say, you haven't listened to this system. We have.
Teddy and tram???
Man, who got out of bed the wrong side today. I've not personally listened to this kit but other tech review site have generally given the MCI900 good and even great reviews. Could it that you just got a duff piece of kit. It's clear you were annoyed at the concept of a external hard drive (valid point) and other inconveniences - a case of teddy and tram perhaps?
dq46, the other review site you're mentioning......if you look at their reviews in general, they tend to praise almost everything they see or hear (although they can be a little critical of Apple products). I usually take their AV & Hi-Fi reviews with a pinch of salt.

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set
The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category
A decent, affordable effort from Otone but sound quality is tainted by a distracting brightness
