We're delighted to be offering the multi-award winning Brennan JB7 500GB exclusively on the high street in our stores!

"An alternative to the ubiquitous iPod and dock, the Brennan's well worth investigating." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.


The Brennan JB7 already has a strong following, with many finding its blend of ease of use, sound quality and unobtrusive size irreplaceable. This Brennan JB7 500GB comes complete with a 500GB hard drive. This means that you can store up to 5000 CDs - all in one place and easy to access. The joy of the Brennan JB7 is how easy it is both to upload the CDs and then to access them. Just two button presses and a few minutes are all it takes to upload a CD. Thanks to the large display and clear control layout, searching for and playing back music is just as simple.

In addition to storing CDs on the JB7, you can also record your old cassettes and records. A 3.5mm line input and (phono stage may be required for vinyl recording) adjustable recording level make it straight forward to record your older music.


Another impressive feature with the Brennan is the option to be able to produce seven playlists. Whilst this isn't new to this type of device, the colour coded lists make it easier to remember what type of music should go in which list. So, for example, you and other members of the household could have their own colour or blue could be for parties while red is for hot summer days.


With various compression rates available, the JB7 gives you the opportunity to achieve even better sound quality. Use the higher quality 320K compression rate and you'll still be able to store 3000 CDs and hear a noticeable improvement in sound quality. For lossless, CD quality sound, the JB7 also lets you record without compression. This gives the highest quality sound and allows around 630 CDs to be stored.

The JB7 also boasts a built-in 60 watt amplifier. This is ample to drive most speakers to high levels, even in larger than average-sized rooms. Careful engineering and good quality components also ensure a smooth and accurate sound quality.


The front-mounted USB interface offers several advantages. First off, you can plug in your iPod or MP3 player and use it as a source of music. Secondly, you can upload music stored on the iPod or MP3 player, straight onto the JB7 and have it easily accessible. Other advantages of this interface include being able to connect a hard drive and duplicating your music as a backup. Finally, by using USB memory sticks, you can transfer blocks of music to and from your PC.


In addition to the USB interface, the JB7 also boasts a range of analogue connections. A 3.5mm output lets you connect the unit up to your own hi-fi. A similar input accepts analogue sources, such as a record deck or cassette deck for analogue recording. There's also a headphone socket for private listening.


With its compact dimensions, the JB7 can be used in a number of places where you wouldn't necessarily want full-size hi-fi components. So, for example, the JB7 works extremely well as a desktop music solution or at a bedside. Despite this, the large and very clear display plus remote control also means that the Brennan works well from the other side of the room.

For an easy to use, compact and quality way to both store and listen to music, the Brennan JB7 is in a league of its own and a product we're very keen to demonstrate in our stores. Call in and see it today!

Also available, matching Brennan BSP50 speakers for just £62.00 per pair.
