Summary: This system is exactly what I was looking for. It plays MP3 players and cds. The remote is the old fashioned kind that takes "real" batteries. My other model takes the watch style battery and I have to find a store that carries them. And I have still not replaced them.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend,I was a little skeptical due to the reviews but figured if there was anything wrong with it I could return it. I absolutely love this stereo and so does he.
Summary: Based on good reviews I ordered this product. It arrived non-functional (would not power up, standby light not lit when plugged in). I wanted to exchange it because I like the look of it and thought the specs met my needs, but the estimated wait time for an exchange was listed as 1-2 months!
OK sound with shoddy construction and malfunctioning remote

Summary: I was hoping this stereo would be a convenient, portable music player we could move into whatever room it was needed. And it was a Sony. I own other Sony stereo components (FM receiver, CD player) and have been happy with them.
Okay value for features but sound quality too bassy

Summary: For my kitchen, I was looking for a good radio/CD combo with an iPod docking station. I figured the Sony CMT-LX20i would be a solid choice, given the Sony name, the price (~$110), and the fairly good reviews it received. After some use, I've become unhappy with my choice.
Summary: I shopped online for a good looking, small, bookshelf stereo unit that is an ipod dock as well as a cd player. I also had in mind to spend between $75 and $150 depending on what I would get for the money. The Sony delivers great sound (MUCH BETTER than expected for its size).
Summary: I bought this stereo after getting rid of my 1980's monster rack stereo that I never used because it was a pain to use, plus took up too much room in my bedroom. After reading the reviews on this system and wanting a stereo system that played CD's and included a remote, decided on this unit.
Great product. I've been using this system daily for ...

Summary: Great product. I've been using this system daily for going on 6 years. It's not the best sound quality but it definitely makes up for that in reliability. It's hard to find electronics these days that last a long time these days - this is one of those 'hard to finds'. Great little shelf system!
