DOA

MK5, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Mine was DOA. CD player made all kinds of grunts and whining noises, then just refused play CD's. Seemed pretty cheaply constructed, like even if it did work, it wouldn't last long. What little sound I heard out of the unit was sort of lame. Seemed like a good idea but as usual in life, you get what you pay for. Didn't try out rest of functions. Didn't order a replacement.

  • Summary: remote stopped working after just 5 months.... looking for contact info for onkio, and can't seem to find a way to contact them. looks like the only thing to do is send the remote to an authorized service center? i would think onkio could just swap the remote out. but, there is no wat to contact them from their website.

Broken after 2 years of light use

Claudiu Colteu "chicago dude", Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: After 2 years of light use it is completely broken. Out of the blue. Just turned it on one day and it could not read any CDs. Stuck at "CD Reading". I noticed that it does not spin the CDs at all (based on the disk position when I insert the CD and after I eject it - same exact position). What a disappointment!

I wanted to give it 5 stars

Bouffie, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: This unit has great sound, seems well made and is easy to operate. It has all the features we wanted for my son's first system. Unfortunately, we are on our second unit and it does not function correctly. The first one had a channel out on one side - so the speaker didn't work. Can not tell you how impressed I was at Amazon's exchange policy and how quickly it was replaced. Awesome. Second unit arrives...the tuner does not work. I can switch from am to fm..

Very happy.

Laura Cooper, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this stereo in January 2012 and am still very happy with my purchase. Sound quality is good, the system is very sturdy and not at all cheap feeling. I can hear my music throughout my entire two-bedroom apartment.

Great for our bedroom

R. Lee, Amazon
5 May 2013
  • Summary: Wanted a good quality sound system for our bedroom, that has a remote, so that I can turn it off and on from the bed. It came down to being between this system, and a similar one from Denon. The Denon was almost twice as expensive, so I decided to give this one a try. It's a nice system, easy to set up, with nice sound. Since I live in a condo, with someone on the other side of my bedroom wall, I can't blast it, so a subwoofer seemed unnecessary.
