Not bad for $100

bucktown, Amazon
1 December 2009
  • Summary: I like to keep these things short, so...basically everything is great, except for: - no alarm clock - Blue-tooth feature is not very straight-forward, I had to RTFM to figure it out. I'd give it 5 stars if I could use the radio/CD player as an alarm clock :)

Not what I thought

  • 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.

Bluetooth not compatible with iPhone

Frederick W. Willison, Amazon
25 December 2008
  • 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...

Versatile, easy to use, great price!

Steven Y., Amazon
4 December 2008
  • 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.

Bluetooth: we ain't fully there yet, folks

Mr. Toast, Amazon
27 October 2008
  • 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.

Reasonable price and good sound

John M. Beckett, Amazon
3 October 2008
  • 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.

Nice shelf stereo w/ bluetooth capability

Gary A. Barohn "GaryMO", Amazon
20 September 2008
  • 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...

great little stereo, bluetooth...not yet

snkalaska, Amazon
3 September 2008
  • 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.

Great system with a fair price tag

sidekick, Amazon
7 August 2008
  • Summary: It's been a while since I got a CMT-BX5BT and there are several things I would like to point out. -It's very convenient and important to have a remote with a music system today. When I received the box, I wanted to make sure there was a remote included but couldn't find any descriptions on the box...
