Great value, awesome design

Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: .... Anyhoo... I use it in my home office where I needed it to be small, fit besides my computer (whose audio out goes right to the AUX input) and plug in my valued JBL Control 1 monitors for audio, video and multimedia authoring. The speakers that came with it are a bit flimsy and tinny sounding (I expected that, since I was mostly looking for the amp/tuner/cd player component), but I use an Electrohome two way speaker switch box and use these for the bedroom, where the...

Perfect for anybody

  • Summary: With the styling, size and quality you can place this system anywhere in your house or office and it will do all that you need it to. I put it in my living room and hooked it up to my tv and get a perfect sound booster for when I watch my movies. It is always a converstaion piece for the blue backlighting and moving glass top. Beware, it looks small but it packs a serious punch!

OK, but I wouldn't buy it again

Lisa Chapman "Colin", Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: Bought this product almost 2 years ago. It's a very stylish system with good sound quality at low to medium volumes. The sound quality suffers noticably at high volumes. I also have a problem with a lot of CD's skipping on this system that don't skip when played anywhere else. I've noticed that any CD played in this system will start to skip after a month or so of regular use.

Awsome design

"chprime", Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: I bought this system pretty much only based on its design - very Philip Starck - very cool - a conversation piece. And i do not regret it a bit, though i have to say its a little underpowered as far as the 19 watts are concerned, but otherwise sounds great and has great features.

Novelty Wears Off

Jim Lloyd "jlloydinsf", Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: This player is very sleek, modern, and entertaining to watch with its cool blue light and sliding glass door. The sound quality is also impressive. One reviewer mentioned that his cat enjoyed it--and after a while I found it was not good for much more than amusing pets. As someone else said, it made perfectly good CD's skip, that did not skip on any other player. If you take a look into the player, you'll see the CD wobbling from side to side as it spins--not good news.

Very nice little system

Jim Lloyd "jlloydinsf", Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: This compact system looks great and sounds very good. We bought it for our kitchen. Sound quality wasn't the most important factor, and frankly, we weren't expecting much, but we were pleasantly surprised with the result. FM reception is very important to us, as we often listen to public radio while cooking. The digital tuner works very well, and even the cheap FM attenna supplied with the unit does a pretty good job.

A Sweet Little System!

Carol Alaniz, Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: My husband and I bought this system to replace a huge 10 yr. old component system that has damaged speakers and a worn out CD player. This little system's elegant style caught my husband's eye. The volume was cranked up in the store and the clarity of the music was so good we took another look at this system and bought it. At home, the system enhanced the look of our living room's entertainment center.

Nice sound and elegant design, but will it last?

D. Tran, Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: I recently bought two systems for my children's rooms. The set is pleasant to hear as well as to look at. The remote control system is complete -- it must since few controllable functions are on the set itself. We are very pleased with the purchase (not from Amazon.com -- I could not wait for the back order). But will this set last?

An excellent product!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: This system almost sounds as good as it is good-looking! The design of this product will uplift the ambience of any room, and while you can't expect really deep bass or high-end high frequency reproduction, it still sounds amazingly good. The bass goes deep, considering the size of thespeakers and the midrange is open and has a lots of detail. Attaching a good subwoofer would undoubtedly help with the bass. Absolutely worth the money!

JVC FS-SD5 Executive Microsystem

A Customer, Amazon
19 March 2001
  • Summary: Wow! What a sound from such a small system. When I first heard it in a electronic chain store I thought I was listening to a large mult speaker Bose type system. I was stunned to see that was a JVC bookshelf system. My wife was impressed too! And trust me,she is hard to please. The price was a little high so we passed on it. I signed on to Amazon later that night and by chance went to the audio section. Guess what?
