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.

Typical Onkyo quality

DTOUR, Amazon
21 May 2014
  • Summary: A dynamic little system for a small room. I plugged in a Boston Acoustics sub but it has great base without it. It shines with big music productions (Sarah Brightman) and performs like a much larger system. You won't be disappointed with the sharp, clear sound with no noise form the CD operation. I would refer this to anyone looking for a quality small system and the price is extremely reasonable considering the great sound.

broke

kathi chokenea-baxla, Amazon

  • 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..

Perfect for my small, cramped bedroom!!

Hawk eye, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace the Sony stereo I had been using as a sound system for my bedroom, and, in a sense, I'm glad the stereo died on me now, because I really like this system!! This system, in tandem with the Polk Audio PSW10, fills my room with a full sound without upsetting people in the neighboring rooms. It's plenty loud for my room, yet sounds good at low volumes for those late nights.

Fantastic unit.

Anil K. Natogi, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a awesome unit. I would also recommend buying Polk Audio PSW10 10-Inch Monitor Series Powered Subwoofer to supplement this unit. This takes this system to a whole new level.

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.
