How to waste money, part 2

So this is the only audio system you’ll ever need … unless, of course, you want to listen to 6Music, or Test Match Special (no DAB), play MP3s, record stuff (other than on cassette), input from your iPod or phone or MP3 player, output to USB …

And this piece of obsolescent kit costs £170, which is about £30 more than I recently paid for a system which can do all of the things listed above.

What’s worse is the heading, “RT Extra, the best subscriber offers”. The wording, and the use of standard Radio Times layout and typography, make it look as if the prestigious Radio Times is endorsing this antiquated equipment. Surely not?
