Re: my favourite is the Sony SRS-X2

"...most of my mates worked at Philips where they had a big "SONY IS OUR ENEMY" poster in their factory"

My experience a lot of the time is that Philips can produce good products but often choose not to (by design, not by build quality) especially in the consumer ranges(*). That said, they do tend to be reliable.

That poster explains a lot of the apparent philips mentality.

(*) Just about every item Philips sell has some form of "crippled" in one area or another. It's as if Philips don't want to produce a good "allrounder" most of the time. Often you'll find that regional variants of the same product have the "crippled" part enabled, but another section is dutifully nobbled instead.
