It pays to search the web! CD player is now working
26 August 2009
Summary: 27 Sept 09: Review update: 5 Stars: I bought this at Woot in August and was dismayed at first that the CD player didn't work. I bought it for the CD player and the duel voltage feature as we have 240V where we currently live. I was able to program the clock and radio. It works fine with my son's iPod. After searching the web and reading countless customer reviews, I found the solution and the CD player works fine.
Summary: The problem I have with this system is the sound. Overall the sound is muddy and harsh. We also have a Sonic Impact I-P23 Portable Speakers for iPod and the sound is far better for half the price. If you want a cool looking clock radio to play your IPod at low volumes, get this. If your looking for a higher quality stereo sound, buy something else.
