Summary: I was a bit leary after reading the other reviews, but I now have had the product in my bedroom for over a year. I have my flat screen running through it and hooked up a couple of extra speakers. Great sound. Easy to set-up and use. Would be 5* if it could kick a bit more ass.
Summary: This system does everything it says it will. What it won't do is blow you away with power or bass - but it's not designed to do that. Is great for a bedroom, office, or small room. I have yet to hook up a sub woofer to the sub output. That may make quite a difference. Overall I like this item.
NICE LITTLE SYSTEM, BUT COULD USE LONGER SPEAKER WIRE

Summary: After extensive on-line research, I purchased this system from Amazon. It promptly arrived, and worked well right out of the box. It replaced an older non-Onkyo system which recently stopped working. Included with this system is only about four feet of speaker wire… not enough for my needs.
Summary: Was wanting a book shelf HI-FI system that would work for my AZ family room which is 14' by 20' The CS345-CD picks up a station in Prescott AZ real well the tuner sounds very Musical, a good CD player an does not take up a lot of space. Am retired an have had a lot of stereo equipment over the year.
Summary: We were looking for a small system to replace our full sized Onkyo/Polk audio system as we downsized into an apartment. This is a great choice for this application. Crisp, full sound in a small package. iPod interface is flawless. FM tuner very good.
Summary: There is a design flaw in the product. The CS-345 features a top-loading clean-cover dock for iPod/iPhone. When the ipod touch is in place, a bump forward or backward on the ipod can damage the connector to the stereo. This will keep the ipod from working property.
Summary: Easy to assemble; shipped quick and packaged well; very good sound quality. So far, so good! I bought and used it in my music classroom in May, so only got a few weeks use out of it....looking forward to using it in August when school reconvenes.
Summary: Not a bad little mini system. The receiver section looks neat and has a sliding cover for the iPod dock. My iPhone 4S fits the dock with no problem. The speakers are nice and small and have a solid feel to them. The sound is good, if a little bright.
