Bad quality control remedied very fast by company

William P. Masters, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: One of the plastic "holders" for the wire connection to right speaker was broken off. The piece was actually inside the wrapping of the body of the stereo. My wife fixed the problem w/a piece of electrician's tape. The battery didn't work and I had to replace it! As soon as Daniel from Electronic campus read my complaint he personally called me on my phone to remedy the problem. Thank you Daniel. Your action will turn me into a repeat customer. Thanks!

Decent system for the money but beware of the remote

E. R. Butler, Amazon
30 January 2007
  • Summary: Unlike some of the other problems with the system that others have mentioned, my problem has nothing to do with sound quality. It's actually a nice little system if you're just a regular person using it to play CDs around the house and not a looking for some extreme sound quality. The problem that i have is that after a year the remote stopped working. Yes, I changed the battery and did other trouble shooting, but to no avail, the remote doesn't work anymore.

Excellent sound, easy to use, compact

Bruce A. Bartlett, Amazon

  • Summary: My wife and I bought this unit for background music in the kitchen. We've been delighted with it. For what it's worth, I am a recording engineer and audiophile, and I review high-end speakers. This Philips shelf stereo has truly excellent sound quality for the price (when you enable its "DBB" bass-boost feature). It sounds uncolored and "open", meaning that it lacks the usual boxy, boomy or tinny sound of most small stereos.

Great Value

SV - New York, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this for my 11 year old daughter 3 months ago and she has been using it non-stop. No problems to-date with the CD player portion. The remote is a bit flimsy, but she just uses the controls on the unit most of the time anyway. Overall: good sound, good feature for a great price.

  • Summary: This system has the great sound of a much more expensive unit. The incredible sound and small size of this system makes it a true value.

I like the extra aux inputs

A. Chow, Amazon
4 January 2007
  • Summary: Bought this for my old TV that has problem with the speakers. Virtually all micosystem type stereos have no additional AUX inputs other than this stereo. This is a great way to hook up your Ipod instead of buying some Ipod specific speaker system. The unit itself is nice looking (ojective) and the remote control works well and looks nice as well. I did not buy this on Amazon and paid a lot more.

Great Stereo - Almost Perfect For an Office Environment

Jason L. Pyrz, Amazon
2 January 2007
  • Summary: The most important thing I was looking for in a small stereo was an auxiliary audio input so that I could plug an iPod dock (or even just an iPod) directly into the system. This system does have one RCA (left and right) auxiliary input on the back, near the speaker and antenna connections (good luck trying to find that information in any of the specs or product descriptions online). This unit looks great, it's a sleek, shiny, silver piece of art.

Enjoying the product

Terri Jenkin, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought the player for my husband's office. He loves it and plays it everyday. The streamline design is attractive and takes very little space on his desk. He has the player next to his computer and the speakers on each side of his L shaped desk. He has no complaints with it. The remote is great. I read the reviews before buying so I know they help people make decisions.
