The Teac CRH260iDAB combines everything you'd expect from a quality mini system with some features you might not.

BLUETOOTH BUILT-IN


Whether it's music stored on your device or fed from a streaming music channel such as Spotify or Last.fm, it's easy to access a massive range of music. With the vast majority of smartphones and tablets coming with Bluetooth, wireless transfer is easy. What's more, many recent PCs, Macs and laptops also come with Bluetooth, making it possible to access the largest of stored album collections - wire free!

WITH SD CARD AND USB


In addition to Bluetooth and the more usual CD player and radio, this versatile mini system also comes complete with both USB and SD card ports. Added together, this makes the CR-H260i system one of the most format friendly mini systems out there! Connect your iPad/iPhone/IPod Touch, MP3 player or memory stick by the USB and enjoy full control of your music files via the Teac's remote control. Similarly, the SD card slot is great way of transferring music between your home hi-fi and mobile phone.

QUALITY CD PLAYER AND RADIO

As you'd expect from this leading mini hi-fi system company, the rest of the package is pretty impressive, too. The high quality CD player provides excellent sound quality with surprising detail and punch for a system so small. In addition to this, it also plays back MP3 encoded and CDRW discs. Finally, the CR-H260iDAB also comes with a DAB FM/AM tuner radio for everything you need from a complete system.

MORE POWERFUL THAN IT LOOKS

Thanks to its digital amplifier, the Teac CR-H260iDAB packs a solid 25 watts per channel (6 ohms) that gives a full and robust sound quality. Although compact, the CRH260iDAB will drive most speakers to high levels; even in larger than average sized rooms.

FULLY FEATURED

Rounding off this feature-packed mini, you'll also find the Teac has 2 audio inputs, an audio output, headphone socket and clock with sleep timer. The display is also dimmable to suit different lighting conditions. Teac are renowned for building some of the highest quality mini systems and the CRH260iDAB is no exception. The front facia is made from brushed aluminium and features rounded edges for an even smoother look. Teac have also kept the button count low to ensure nothing spoils the sleek good looks.

For the maxi mini system, the Teac CR-H260iDAB has everything covered.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Over-All, a nice little unit. This neat little unit sounds pretty good, considering the modest price. As others have said, it takes a short time, upon switch-on, to scan the DAB Radio band, about 20 seconds, no big deal. Some have also pointed out that you can't store DAB stations, but that is NOT correct, although the instruction book omits to tell you how! (It's basically the same as for FM). The CD sounds very good, although it's a pity that it doesn't read CD Text. It also has a USB port for a memory stick, which I've tried, and it works well, although as with the CD, it does not show text, just MP3 file numbers. The timer and sleep functions are handy, as is being able to dim the display. I'm very pleased, over-all, with my purchase. 13 October 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Let down by interface & software Good sound, looks very smart with solid build quality, and has a very good range of connection options. Good value for money, but... The front panel controls despite looking smart are not intuitive to use, especially track selection using the jog control; some functions, e.g. program, are only found on the remote. So you end up using the (cheap and plasticky) remote for everything. The biggest problem is the USB option. Even if your memory stick has tracks arranged in folders, they are listed in one long number sequence. My memory stick contains 877 tracks! This makes the jog wheel a joke. Worse still, each time you access a track, the numbers of the tracks within the list are changed, so next time, you can't find the track you want. I could hardly believe this! I deduce that the unit modifies the "Date last accessed" field on the memory stick, and sorts by this field. I don't want to exchange it - there is nothing I prefer for this money. But it badly needs a firmware update! 21 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good things in small packages Just as good as my old Denon mini unit but takes up a much smaller footprint the DAB radio is a bit difficult to tune in but all in all good value.I looked at the Panasonic but the Denon appealed more for its looks. 13 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lot for the price A small unit and reasonably priced but packed with lots of ability. The CD player and the radio sound great through my B and W speakers and the Bluetooth connect ability is great teamed up with my Apple Mac mini and the music stored on it. Controls could be made simpler so it is confusing to use. 22 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good sound, slow DAB station search I have been very happy with a TEAC CRH258i purchased three years ago. I decided to replace an older Hi-Fi separates system with the 260i. Set up is easy and its sound quality is high from all sources. If navigation of tracks from a USB memory stick is important to you then this product has only a very basic interface available. The most serious issue for me was the time it took to locate the last played DAB station when this source was selected. Although DAB stations are scanned on first switch on, this unit seems to scan every time DAB is selected. I found I could count to thirty before the DAB station was playing. This is unlike the 258i which takes 3-4 seconds. As a result I decided this product was unsuitable and swapped the unit for one which provided a better DAB experience. 17 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice system but... This is very nearly a first rate system for the price. The sound quality is excellent. The radio, both FM and DAB, works very well. However, I have several caveats. First, the remote control feels very spongy and is often non-responsive. Second, it takes an age to switch on, even in FM mode. If you select DAB, it does an initialization process (every time!) that takes forever. Third (and this may be me) I can find no way of setting DAB favourites. The manual is quite clear about how to set up FM presets and that works fine but it doesn't mention DAB presets at all. Finally, it has a feature that I've never come across on any other system: a delay of a few hundred milliseconds on FM radio. So, if you have another radio tuned to the same station in a different room, you get a really annoying echo effect. It's definitely this system that has the delay; I've tried several other radios of different makes and they're all in sync on FM. 17 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sounds great, fantastic spec and functionality. Small and compact. Cheap. This unit sounds crisp, lively, well sorted with a warm but detailed sound from all inputs. At this price an absolute bargain. Bass guitar is weighty but well defined with a nice presence in the upper mids. Percussion is lively, airy and floaty. Vocals natural and clear. The Teac unit sits nicely on a small shelf. It's small footprint making it ideal for use in my kitchen but could easily be used as a main system. For the money it's difficult to find fault with it's sound. It's loud enough to fill most rooms and when testing the system in my lounge using Tannoy Mercury speakers, the sounscape and imaging we're very impressive for a unit in this price range. All in all a very nice sounding system. Dab radio is distortion free and doesn't suffer from the compression that some units inflict on the sound. My only gripe is that operation through the front panel is not fully intuitive and can be a little confusing. This can be avoided using the remote which has all the controls to hand. 16 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality - great sound - great value for money I have bought Teac for some years now. This is a very good example. Well made with a good range of inputs and well capable of driving decent speakers. You can store DAB pre-sets, and although it does take approx. 20 sec. to load DAB from switch-on, this is not much longer than other units and doesn't irritate me. As with other pieces of kit, you need to read the manual. 28 July 2014
