ALFiE full review

Referred to throughout the marketing material as a ‘he’, the ALFiE appears to have quite a grand opinion of ‘himself’. And if you consider that it’s an iPod docking stereo system with a CD player, AM/FM radio and a DVD player all rolled into one, you may be inclined to agree.

It certainly looks the part when you take it out of the box. The ALFiE has a curved design with silver sides and a shiny piano-black top panel.

The connectivity ports for your TV are on the back of the unit, while the top has a row of touch-sensitive red lights that act as buttons.

However, ALFiE’s looks are blighted somewhat when in use. There’s a click-to-open iPod dock at the back – inexplicably it’s slightly to the right of centre. The touch-sensitive buttons are also on the unresponsive side.

Sound is OK, but the £400 price tag reflects the unit’s multi-purpose nature rather than its exquisite audio output.
