Summary: Upon unpacking the exd-1, the first thing I noticed that the unit appeared brand new.... If this is a common example of "re-furbished", I am sold on the concept. I hooked the unit up and everything worked as described.... Great Sound! I have a Bose surround system as well, but think the exd1 sound quality is as good or better if hooked to a subwoofer.. It sounds great without the subwoofer, but much richer if you have one around.
Summary: We bought this stereo set for our son's bedroom and liked it so much that we bought a second set for the family room. Considering it's compact size, this thing puts out amazing sound. Way beats some of the small, overpriced Bose systems, in my opinion. We also love the USB port, so we can use it with our MythTV setup.It is factory refurbished and the very first set shipped to us had a motor problem (the disk won't spin), but Overstock's customer service made the return...
Summary: We had been looking for a small shelf stereo system for quite awhile when we stumbled across this one. First, it is visually appealing with cherrywood-toned wood speakers, and the small receiver/cd/dvd player. And we liked that. Also, the size is perfect for where we wanted it placed in our living room.
Summary: I started out really attracted to the Onkyo CS-325 CD Receiver System (available right now for $189 via Target online, moving toward $220 after shipping). I wanted a reasonable price for good respectable quality but also reliability after my AudioVox DVD shelf system started skipping mp3 CDs after a short period of use. (Perhaps I should start looking for a system with a USB port for flash drives.
Summary: This radio replaces my little, awful sounding clock radio. The alarm is easy to set for a technology phobic such as myself. It's an attractive radio. I actually thought the speakers were connected, which they are not, so it's 3 separate pieces. The sound is wonderful. The radio reception is pretty good, not excellent. I'd recommend it and I'm glad I bought it.
Summary: I needed a small system because of limited space, but I wanted good quality. I found it and more with this JVC system. The fact that I can hook it directly to my computer to play downloaded music was a plus that I was not even thinking about when it was purchased. I have been very impressed with the quality of sound produced from such a small system. The wood cone speakers have a classic look to them and blend in very well on a bookshelf.
Summary: I just bought this system a few days ago and I am very pleased with it. It is a true bookshelf system because it is small, yet quite elegant. There are "bookshelf" systems out there that you couldn't fit on a bookshelf for a million bucks. There are some "small" systems for which you need to find the room for a big, hulking subwoofer. Not so with this system.
Beautifully made micro system for the computer age

Summary: I have been a loyal customer of the JVC micro exe systems since they first came out and I have not been disapointed. The EXD1 is the fourth one I own. The main attractions to me are the USB audio input, higher power output, and the DVD funtion. The USB port works flaulessly with my Sony Vaio laptop. It produces much cleaner sound. Now I can play my iTune content without ever worrying about signal saturation. Volumm control in iTune still works as usual.
Excerpt: Hola a todos. Dentro de unos quince dias salgo de cuentas y ya tengo el cuarto del bebe preparado. Siempre he oido que la musica es buena para los niños y pensaba comprarme una cadena de musica para ponerla en el cuarto del bebe. Pero he tenido la suerte de que me la han regalado. Me han regalado la JVC EX - D 1. Estoy muy contenta con ella. reproduce CD, DVD, MP3, CD-R/RW, SVCD, VCD. Vamos de todo un poco.
Excerpt: Ero alla ricerca di un mini, meglio se micro, sistema audio: dopo varie analisi la mia scelta è caduta sul modello EX-D1 prodotto dalla JVC. Il suddetto modello è il più piccolo (in tutti i sensi) della gamma "EX" della Japan Victor Company Ltd. Ebbene, preciso subito che non è semplicemente un lettore CD, ma anche un lettore DVD audio e DVD video (con emulazione Dolby ed ETS).
Pros: Compatto, buona qualità audio; senza inutili sfronzoli
