Summary: why i purchesed this item was to go w/wireless headphones...i must have missed something as there was no indicator regarding a lack of headphone jack...which was why i ordered item in first place......i didn't realize that is no longer a standard feature on this type of system.............there is an ipod dock (which i don't need).....i expect to make a gift of this....and try again.....
Summary: I read many reviews here before deciding on this EC709iP, Though a few reviewers had some concerns I have yet to realize the validity. I replaced a 14 yr. old Awia bookshelf model that still has some operational functions working.Used in my shop I need a reasonable decibel output so this seemed like one of the best choices.
Summary: I bought this system for occasional use in my bedroom based on reasonable price and without any high expectations from product. In two years I had used the CD player 5 times. As of now the CD player displays "NO DISC" message, while the disc is in and cleaned thoroughly. I would not recommend to buy the system even somebody is looking for the cheap option, like I did.
Summary: This Sony Hi-Fi has great sound! Love how it looks and it is great for me, as a soloist, to practice learning songs that I sing. As I have limited space in my home, I also appreciate the size that fits perfectly in the only space I had to put it! Very happy with this purchase!
Summary: i wanted a loud system with bass and this was it at 350 amps. but when you turn up the sound the system crashes and flashes a protect prompt. no point of being 350 amps but the sound is very decent.
Summary: Purchased for our daughter's 13th birthday, this stereo made the perfect gift at just the right size for her room and at a very good price from Amazon. The Sony name implies a very well made product and it comes with all the necessary bells and whistles. Just one problem though, no input for headphones. But overall a wonderfull present.
Summary: I had to send it back because the CD Player was broken. The CD's skipped and finally stopped playing. I have always love Sony products and I know this was a fluke so I ended up purchasing the EC909iP Sony model from a local store. I love it and am glad that my first one was broken. My faith in Sony products is renewed.
Summary: I'm not about to drag this out any further than most of you want me to so I'll simply say one thing about this item. If you dont have much cash to work with, don't need all the useless features added on to most shelf systems, have a small amount of space to place such an item and really want to anger those around you with the tunes they don't like...look no further than this system here. Unless you want the 909ip with the subwoofer.
