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: 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: 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: I had a bluetooth probelm with my Macbook Tiger connecting to CMTBX5BT. But after I upgrade to Leopard, Apple somehow just fix the bluetooth problem. Its a excellent product. Nice Sound and very fancy look.
Summary: I am extremely pleased with the Sony stereo. I am ecstatic about the bluetooth feature as I store all of my music on my computer and it works great. Very clear. I also benefit from the Graphic Equalizer built into Media Player.
Summary: This is a great bluetooth product. I use it to listen to the music I have on my computer and online radio stations. The only problem is the fact the system is analog and it does not have any outputs other than the speaker outputs.
Summary: This stereo is great for a desktop office or a small room. The sound is excellent for the price. I enjoy a lot of classical music so I like speakers that are clear and accurate. I don't need booming bass, even when I play Led Zeppelin. I got my computer hooked up to it via bluetooth, but I do have a minor complaint.
