Summary: I was looking for an audio with bluetooth function. But the audio DOES NOT have bluetooth function! The one delivered to me was Sony CMT-BX20i, which does not have bluetooth, and is also available in other stores in Amazon at about 120 dollars. I am furious because the website did not give its proper name, if it had, I would have know that this doesn't have bluetooth. But it gave different name, and fooled the customer.
Summary: Lots of performance in a tiny Sony package - tiny as compared to stereo component systems. If I were to recommend any improvement, it would be to add a real equalizer to adjust music to my ear as I have difficulty hearing certain frequencies clearly. Not deaf, just missing the little nuances. Adjusting bass and treble only is not a truly effective equalizer and does nothing to enhance classical music.
Summary: The sound is crisp and clear, multi functions work perfect. From the ipod,cd,am fm radio, clock. Remote control is an added feature. I wanted a small system for my bedroom. I am very pleased with the quality and cost of this stereo. Perfect.
Summary: I purchased this same player for my mom about three years ago, so I knew what to expect. The separate bass and treble control are much better than the preset sound selection ( jazz, rock, voice, ect.) I have found on other systems. I have played 3rd gen Ipod to 5th gen Ipod with no problems. Speakers supplied sound nice with a decent amount of bass. I may try different speakers later to see if sound can be improved.
Summary: I bought this to use as computer speakers and it does an excellent job. It was on clearance for $30 when I bought it but it is worth the full price. The radio doesn't work well for me and the remote is already taped together so it loses a star. Still, no regrets.
Summary: All functions, including AM/FM reception met my expectations, meaning up to Sony's reputation for quality products. The only thing missing is tone control. My older bookshelf stereos have simple up/down treble and bass controls. It would be a neat feature if Sony had added two additional jacks for connecting an external equalizer. I gave it 5 stars because I was aware of all this before I purchased the CMT-BX20i. I'm going to try adding these jacks..
Summary: Read all the reviews (nice feature on Amazon). Seemed like the best bet for the money - Christmas gift. Arrived in time for delayed giving - (Best Buy was a bust) and it sounds great. Advertised properly and reviews accurate.
Summary: One of the risks that I took when purchasing this unit was not knowing whether it would work with my iPhone 4S, and I thought others may be interested to know that it does. The Otter Box case on my iphone makes it a little challenging to get a good electical connection, but that is not the fault of this unit. I just need to press it down carefully when I dock. The system also works with a 6th generation Ipod Nano.
