We spend a lot of time reviewing mid-fi and flagship component products. Every once in a while, however, a product is brought to our attention for review which we feel will provide a good balance and round out our coverage. Unless you've never been to a mall or airport you should be familiar with the Brookstone name. Brookstone sells products in its retail stores and on its website from such manufacturers as Sony, RCA, and Bose. In addition, Brookstone releases selected customized products under its own brand. The Brookstone Wafer-thin CD System with M P3 (say that three time fast!) is one such product. It caught our eye and when Robert Padget, PR Director for Brookstone suggested we review it, we couldn't resist.
