Summary: Perfect for kitchen, love the compact speakers and that I can place them a good distance apart. You will need to purchase extra wire depending on the size of your room. Sound and reception are excellent.
Pros: Attractive Design, Doesn't Skip, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
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.
Excerpt: Receiver has a good construction, and is powerful enough. Speakers are good, but not much bass. Receiver has pre-amp sub-woofer output if you need more bass. CD player seems 'added' on the receiver and is a bit flimsy. The button to open the tray is very small . I Did not try ipod connection.
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.
