Summary: I bought this because I heard it playing at a Christmas party. The music filled the large room as if the sound were emanating from everywhere. Yet, though I like it at home, it malfunctions at times. Very frustrating. Something wrong with volume because it independently shrieks so loud...scary. Nevertheless, it is priced very affordably. Yours might be perfect. It has VERY fine sound.
Summary: The CD player doesn't play a lot of burned disks, the volume control goes from quite to really loud, sound quality is poor, and the radio option is a joke because the antenna is.. well its not that great. On the bright side, it looks pretty slick mounted on my wall. If you want an inexpensive poorly made product that looks nice on your wall, this is for you. I've had this for about 2 years now though, so hopefully there are some better options out there.
Summary: I've had this for several years and am surprised by the sound quality considering the very low cost of this product. It's a really nice looking little unit and very portable as well as being wall mounted. Very smart, I'd like to get another for my chill out room so I don't need to move it around the house with me (but that's just modern day laziness!). Definitely worth the money and would happily purchase again.
Summary: This product is very pretty. Its sleek and looks very modern. That been said, it is not worth the money however cheap it may be. It worked for 1 MONTH then the cd part just spins with no music. If you unplug it without powering down first, there is no music. The radio part works fine but its not worth the price better to put another $50 and but something else. DO NOT BUY.
Summary: The Philips MC235B is a good product for the money. It has adequate sound, much better than the comparable Sony it replaced. Fits upright to minimize surface space. Headphone jack on top is good placement. (Sony had it in the rear and caused major struggles to find it.) No skips on CD. Volume is good with minimal, if any, distortion. I think they hit the low-end market with a good, functional item. You will not go wrong with this.
Summary: This Philips Stereo system is great! The sound quality is there in this small profile. I like that it can be wall mounted, but we have ours sitting on the shelf. It looks streamline and very expensive. I love it! I can't say anything negative. It's exactly what I was looking for. You won't be sorry with this Philips stereo!
Summary: I bought this because of my good history with Philips products and to replace an old Aiwa system I had before and that was taking up too much space. The unit is very handsome, however it is not as thin as the pictures show. You have to be careful when iserting CDs -- you have to hold the player with one hand and put the CD in with the other, or it will tip over backwards. Shouldn't be a problem if you have it wall mounted.
Summary: I bought this on February 11, 2011 and I am completely enjoying it. Doesn't take up a lot of space. I bought a a "audio player-to-stereo cable" from Staples so I can play music from my MP3. It works perfectly and I am enjoying my MP3 on my stereo.
