Dunhill debuts smokin' new stereo

Slip on your smoking jacket and spark up your finest Cuban, because the ideal gentleman's entertainment centre is here. No, not a night in Stringfello

Slip on your smoking jacket and spark up your finest Cuban, because the ideal gentleman's entertainment centre is here. No, not a night in Stringfellows with the company credit card – it's the Alfred Dunhill AD88.

More familiar with manufacturing pipes, fancy leather goods, cigarettes and watches, Dunhill has enlisted the help of hi-fi honchos Meridian to craft the sleek CD and DVD player with on-board FM and DAB tuner. High class gents with one loafer in the present can also dock their iPods for that extra finishing touch.

At £2000, it's not for anyone with a penchant for tracksuits and cans of warm lager, but the state-of-the-art 2.1 DSP digital sound system should fill the drawing room or library very nicely with the strains of Mozart, Handel or Slayer.

Best of all, the AD88's polished wood and piano lacquer suit houses an OLED display and three amps, with enough power to push 80 Watts of tunage to the two front speakers and sub. Spiffing.
