Summary: I haven't owned this very long, but so far it plays cds very well. Puts out a decent sound for such a small bookshelf sysytem. Love the USB port that lets you play mp3s from a memory stick. I'd recommend it.
Summary: I was expecting to be able to plug in my ipad into the USB port. It didn't work. All I had to do was to buy an inexpensive auxiliary cable, plug it into the earphone jack on the iPad and the auxiliary port on the stereo. I can listen to my ipad through the stereo and charge the ipad at the same time. The stereo sound great.
Summary: If the remote control worked I would give this five stars. The sound is great and takes up very little space but the remote doesn't work and for that reason I am extremely disappointed. And yes I checked the battery and that's not the problem.
Summary: Sound output is clear and load enough tor small/medium areas. Sounds fine without the Bass "boost" on, but if the music is low on bass to start, may compensate for that. Like the options for playback. USB, headphone jack, Aux jack, CD drive, Ipod dock, and the radio has fairly good reception with the standard antenna. Good value for the $.
