"What does the AUX/CDR button do again?"
December 7, 2011 7:45 AM Subscribe
Anyone have any suggestions on an easy-to-use stereo? We want to buy a system for our out-of-state mother, who not unexpectedly is not very technical. Are there any systems that have a very simple user interface? I'm basically looking for the "jitterbug" of stereos.

*We'd like it to have radio capabilities, as well as to hook up to her dvd & tv (which I suppose the latter is a given nowdays). So, simple input switching is desired.
*I was thinking about a soundbar since it seemed simpler to set up, but it seems many of them are going for the minimalist look--something that often means infuriating interface.
*I don't think she will notice much difference between 7.1 speakers vs a standard stereo 2.0 configuration. I think she mainly wants something to listen music with, so two speakers is fine.
*She has a Samsung TV, so I believe it would be simpler with their AnyNet system to have a Samsung stereo as well? I believe it automatically switches the input?
*Looking around $200 or so?
