USB sockets allow you to do all sorts of things. Most commonly you can play media stored on a flash drive, but some units can record to one too or connect accessories like video-calling cameras.
If you're an avid radio listener, RDS is a very helpful feature. It shows you the name of the FM station you're listening to and makes sure you're hearing the strongest signal.

Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around.

Free loan machine (Subject to availability. Only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable

Quality sound from a compact system and all from one of the best hi-fi brands in the business - the Pioneer X-EM16 brings class to the budget mini system.
Tailor the sound Just as you'd expect from this top quality audio brand, the Pioneer is fitted with a punchy, digital amplifier. Whilst it won't rattle the windows it's plenty powerful enough for a kitchen, bedroom or study system. For personal tuning, the XEM16 also comes with a 5-preset equaliser, letting you choose between Flat, Pop, Rock, Classic and Jazz modes.
Flexible playback Coming with both USB and 3.5mm inputs, the Pioneer X-EM16 is ideal for a range of sources - both old and new. Plug your digital media device in via the USB and use the analogue 3.5mm input for any source with a headphone socket and you'll be able to access music from pretty much any device. Built into the compact casing is a CD player and RDS FM radio, making it ideal as a desktop or bedside entertainment system.
Fully featured With a full system remote control, this Pioneer mini is easy to operate. As you'd expect, the CD player is fully featured, including track programming and the tuner comes with RDS for station identification. The large, informative display and clear, simple control layout also make for ease of operation.
For a quality second system at a bargain price, the Pioneer X-EM16 is a tough act to beat.

Good sound, good valuePleasantly surprised by the quality of sound from the compact speakers but I would have preferred separate tone controls rather than the presets. The remote doesn't have numeric keys so playing a single track from a CD involves pressing the 'skip' key until the desired track is found. FM performance is good with the aerial supplied.
