    Hi all,

    I am looking to replace a mini hi-fi system that is located in the corner of our bedroom. The system is used basically as a "sleep" and "wake-up" aid and the occasional background music for the room.

    I am looking to replace it with a more aesthetically pleasing, skinny system. It must be able to play at least a CD, have AM/FM tuner, alarm/sleep functions (almost all systems have those requisites now, so I am basically looking for something that has a slim depth).

    I have checked out the Sony and Panasonic micro systems and they are in the 6" - 7" depth range. I was wondering if there are any (a) skinnier and/or (b) better systems out there that I can take a look at, that would be better.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    6-7" is already slender (in terms of depth) -- remember a CD is what, 5"?

    Cannot vouch for its sound, but this product has a vertically mounted CDP.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys... keep 'em coming. I didn't expect Denon to be a name that pops up. I know that they make kick ass receivers, but I never thought that they would be a "brand name" mini-system to go with.

    As for Ecost, I have never heard of them. Are they any good?
