The X-Boom has far more functions and features than you would find on a regular Hi-Fi set. It also has more connectivity options than others of its kind and so you find a CD tray as well as USB ports and Bluetooth. There is a Smart DJ function aided by two turntables on the front panel. They work even with music being streamed from a smartphone. The record to USB options helps save all the grooves you create. There is FM too, but we doubt if you would want to hear that on this system. The device is peppered with buttons and there are at least two ways to do most things. We loved the fact that the scratchpad can be used to navigate through the USB folder.
