Sony was founded by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita on May 7th in
1946 Tokyo. The Sony Corporation is the leading manufacturer of
audio, video, communications and information technology products.
They make these for both the consumer and professional markets.
Additionally, the companys has a massive music, motion picture,
television production business. They also expanded into video games
with the Playstation, and their online businesses make Sony one
of the most comprehensive entertainment companies in the world.
Sony bought both the CBS (Columbia) Records Group from CBS and Columbia
Pictures, and currently own 60% of the world wide music market with
the merger of Sony Music Entertainment and BMG in 1994. Sony have
in the past invented technologies including the MiniDisc, Betamax,
SDDS (Sony Dynamic Digital Sound) and present day Blu-Ray disc format.

Sony KV32DX30 32 Inch Flat Screen Television
I really like the styling of the TV and that it's in silver. It
has good speaker placement and the TV stand is probably my favourite
part because Sony have blended the TV and stand together. You can
hardly tell where the TV ends and the stand begins and this means
it look as if it's all one giant unit. The tv I cost is a 32 inch
flat screen but you can get it as a 36 inch televison, it has features
such as 16:9 widescreen format, gigital tuner with all Freeview
channels on Sky such as Sky News and some of the music channels,
Virtual Dolby Surround sound, 10 watts RMS subwoofer power output,
Fastext which means a quicker way to access Teletext information
by using the red, green, yellow and blue buttons on the remote control.
Some of the news Sony tv's also have a favourites option that remembers
your channel switching and gives you live pictures of previous channels.
I would definitely recommend this television or anything from Sony
because they make such good appliances.

Sony CDPXE270S CD Player
I picked out this cd player model because it was among the least
expensive models that Sony currently produce. There were two less
expensive models at Comet, but they were not acceptable brands,
Bush and Goodmans who I don't trust quality wise. The setup and
installation was easy, I just pluged it into the wall and connected
the audio (optical or analog) to my Sony amplifier. The CD player
will play both CD-R and CD-RW recorded discs. It is also Multi functional,
which allows quick and easy operation of MD ie.entering text, changing
track, controlling edit facilitiy. It also has optical digital output
for connecting other digital equipment such as a minidisc player
and has 24 track programmable/repeat/random CD play function, which
you can program tracks to play in a certain order, random order
or in repeat mode. It hasnt got a remote control in the package
but it can be bought, but still in the end this is a fantastic piece
of equipment, and a must-buy for all needing a useful but cheap

Sony CMTEP333 Hifi
The big advantage to me is the size of this hifi stereo unit. It
is very small. The main component holds a one disc CD player and
a radio that plays the standard FM-AM stations. The two speakers
are also small and can be moved easily if you want a more surround
sound. The CD player on this system works well, is loud enough for
large room and does does not skip like hifi stereos i have owned.
With the radio it has a presetting stations option with an auto
or manual mode, but I have found this very confusing and hard to
understand, even with help from the instructions. If you have a
small flat or just to save space, then this is the ideal hifi which
isn't too expensive but sounds good for the money and is attractive.
