Summary: as others have said, the cd playing part of this product is garbage, however i must say the speaker quality is outstanding and this unit is diehard, i have been using and abusing these speakers for over 6 years and everything works fine.
Summary: I have had this unit two years plugged into my tv and have had nothing but frustration. I have all the same complaints about the system and playing cd's as listed here by everyone else, i.e., loads the cd's really slow, won't shuffle, etc.
Summary: I've always been told to say something nice about someone or something if you have criticisms. So, the sound from this system is good. BUT - - - it doesn't go from CD to CD, has no mute button, and is very slow responding to the remote.
What are you guys talking about,this system is AWESOME!!!

Summary: I bought this sharp stereo not too long ago,and was incredibly impresed in the sound it makes!There's a "surround" feature that only works when playing DVD's and CD's that makes it sound like it echoes!
Summary: I recently bought the XL-DV60 "5-CD/DVD Changer" & was very disappointed that it stops playing after it finishes each CD. You have to manually advance to the next. It also does not shuffle between CDs. I am totally incredulous that Sharp would release such a product!
Almost neat - but step backwards: no daily alarm/no audio out/don't loose remote!

Summary: This unit has lots of features and great value to like. Almost bought it... I was looking for a shelf system that actually was shallow enough to fit on my bookshelf (what's with the 15" deep "shelf" systems - hello!).
Summary: I agree with Jaya Schillinger, for the same reasons. I purchased the unit to use as a 5-disc CD changer. Actually, I had to return the first one, which was defective. As Jaya says, it's like having a single-disc CD player. In addition, I have difficulty playing CDs which I burned myself.
Summary: it has one BIG advantage over the other brands. At least from my tests in-store, it appears to be one of the only ones to play mp3 DVDs (not just CDs). That's a big deal because you can cram 4.7 gigs of mp3 data and play it on here!
Summary: Well I connected this system to my television and cable box 2 days ago. I was really pleased with the look of it. It was also very easy to connect. I put in several CDs and DVDs to try it out. My first complaint is that it takes way tooooo long to load a disk. Everything I put in played..
Excerpt: Zunächst das Gute: Die Anlage ist vom Klang her gut. Kleine, aber gute Boxen. Obwohl in der Beschreibung nur von CD's geredet wird, kann meine Anlage Mp3 und MPG-Dateien auch von DVD lesen. D.h.
Pros: Guten Klang, klein,
Cons: lange Einlesezeiten für DVD/CD, umständliche Direkttiteleingabe
