Summary: This is called a "component" system which leads me to believe it has jacks for adding additional components. It doesn't. The only way to interface with this system externally is via Bluetooth. This is a standalone system. Aesthetically, its a good looking system and the sound is good for a micro system.
Summary: The product is great. It wasn't very expensive it's compact and has a great sound. The I Pod can be docked, and to me, it's the best feature.JR said they would try to get it here by Christmas and they did, [...] I would buy from them again!
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Summary: This is a nice product, but I bought it for use with my iphone to stream music via bluetooth. Doesn't work. Researched it and it seems the iPhone is the problem, it doesn't have the proper/standard bluetooth protocol to stream the music (90% of cellphones with music capability do have this A2DP industry standard protocol). Not Sony's fault, but there is no fix for the iPhone and bluetooth will NOT work. Works fine docked.
Summary: I got this for my home office use streaming from my computer. After a year and a half, I simply love this compact stereo and would recommend it at a heart beat. PAIRING Pairing is easy. The very first time you have to enter the default code of 0000 but it's seamless thereafter. Now all I have to do is turn on the stereo and put it on Bluetooth mode, establish the Bluetooth connection from my computer, make sure the BT driver is the active audio output, and fire up WMP.
Summary: This is a nice little system for the price but it does have some drawbacks, mostly due to its Bluetooth implementation -- which in fairness I should say is not all Sony's fault. First of all, you must pair the receiver with whatever other B/T device you're going to be using with it; it is bidirectional, meaning it can transmit the audio it's playing to a set of Bluetooth stereo headphones (Motorokr S9, for example) or can receive audio from a music player such as an...
Summary: This product is reasonably cheap, and the sound is decent for the price. I bought a pair of cheap speaker stands ($34) from Amazon, and it has improved the sound a lot. I would suggest anyone who buys this system does the same. I also got the bluetooth adapter so I can play music from my computer's itunes, and it works perfectly, although you should avoid the drivers on the CD that comes with the product as they messed up my Microsoft Office and I had to reinstall it.
Summary: Consistent with Sony's usual high quality, this is a solid shelf stereo system. All functions work properly and very straight forward and logical in their operation. I'm a bluetooth junkie so I really like the bluetooth capability, and it was really the chief reason for purchasing this particular unit. Paired up quickly to my smartphone and laptop with no problems. Lastly, unit looks good versus some other shelf stereos that look cheap.
Summary: Sony got a winner with this one. I love the Bluetooth link feature - mine had it standard even though I've read somewhere that it was an option. I stream NPR programs on my PC in the next room and hear it crystal clear over the CMT-BX5BT. It will also play and display the title of MP3 files, a nice feature for this price range. As for another reviewer complaining about setting the clock, mine works just fine. Perhaps you forgot to press ENTER on the remote after set-up.
Summary: I wanted to play music from my laptop onto this stereo so I bought the Iogear GBU221 adapter that was showing up in the "Customers Who Bought..."section. I got the bluetooth to play, but it cut off after about 30 seconds. I called Iogear 4 times trying to get this adapter to work by uninstalling the cd loaded driver and reloading the online one several times without success.
