Summary: the item is nice looking and works well. so that is great. however, as for ease of use, the power button is hard to find in the dark, you have to push a button various times to find the option you want (ipod, tuner, cd, etc..) have not used the ipod feature yet.
Summary: Was disappointed when the IPhone base stopped working after 2 weeks of owning the it'em. Had to send it back for a refund. The company wanted me to pay for shipping but I refused. However I have purchased Sony products for over 20 yrs and have never had any problems. This was my first. The Amazon Staff was very helpful in helping me resolve this problam.
Summary: I bought one of these units new and found out that the there is an automatic loudness/current limiter action going on when playing this unit in FM or AM radio mode. The radio volumn cannot play loud at all on this unit due to this limiter action! Ipod and MP3 modes do not seem to have this drastic automatic loudness limiter action so can play loud (making use of the full output power this unit is rated at).
Summary: I am very pleased with this unit for the price, but that is because I am not using the speakers that came with it. I was looking for an inexpensive compact receiver, but it was less expensive to buy one that included speakers than to buy a stand-alone receiver. I am using this system in my kitchen and have the receiver tucked away in a cupboard, which works well. The speakers that are included are not very good, even considering the price.
Summary: Price was better than what I saw it for although I cannot really comment on the item since I gave it as a Christmas present and did not hear any feedback from the recipient. I hoped she liked it.
Excerpt: I was on on the hunt for a new stereo for my bedroom just a few weeks ago and my requirements were quite simple; - have an alarm clock feature - look good - have ipod connectivity - sound top notch I looked at a few logitech speakers/docks, I trust Logitech to produce a good sound for a reasonably price as I have other Logitech speakers and they worked well but Sony have had a reputation for reasonably good mp3 devices and other electronics, they aren't a small company.
Pros: great alarm features; feels nice and good buld quality
Cons: Bigger than a normal ipod dock; can be expensive if you don't shop around .
Summary: IMPORTANTISISMO: se volete acquistare questo stereo per collegare un iPod di ultima generazione, cioè con connettore Lightning, non potete utilizzarlo con la porta USB. Dovete per forza comparare un adattatore. Nel seguito spiego il perché!!! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Ho acquistato questo stereo tramite i premi di Esselunga, per cui non so quantificarne il prezzo.
Pros: Compatto, facile da usare, senza troppe pretese qualità del suono soddisfacente
Cons: Serve adattatore per i nuovi iPod, non è espandibile con sistemi HiFi esterni .
Summary: haben den vorgänger bestellt, leider ging das dumme ding 2 Monate nach ablauf der Garantie kaputt, nutzen es jetzt nur im sommer draußen, spielt keine cs mehr, habe dann dieses ding incl Versicherung bestellt, das gerät ist wirklich super, leider ist die lieferung total fürs arsch gewesen, habe fast einen monat darauf gewartet, die lieferzeit wurde mehrfach VOR und zurück gesetzt, in der zeit wurde das produkt bereits wieer eingestellt (für 50€ mehr), ich hatte das...
Summary: Gutes Aussehen,guter Klang und genau das Richtige fürs Teeniezimmer.Leider war nirgens angegeben,das ein Docking-Adapter benötigt wird und dann fehlte auch noch die Fernbedienung,die sich auch nicht nachliefern ließ.Deshalb leider zurück,2 Sterne abzug und auf ins Weihnachtsgetümmel.
