Summary: I bought this unit to have a good sound system in my bedroom and to power my outdoor speakers. I wanted to buy a speaker switch but in addition to the usual red/black speaker leads, this unit has extra blue/gray leads for the "high frequency" part of the speaker.
Summary: Pros: OK sound, plays MP3 CDs, OK FM reception, iPod connection. Cons: Horrible looking speakers, speaker leads too short, clock display cuts off after 8 seconds, no CD changer. I bought one of these to replace a 7-year old Magnavox mini component system with a 5-CD changer, in one of my vacation...
Decent performance but stopped working within 3 years

Summary: I bought one of these in 2009 to replace a Sony boombox that just didn't have enough "oomph" to it. The two large speakers provide plenty of volume for indoor use, haven't tried it outside yet but I imagine it would carry well enough for an outdoor party.
Summary: This thing isn't going to blow the door off dorm room hinges but it pumps out quality sound. I bought it for my girlfriend who has a studio and this thing is nice and loud enough to blanket the bedroom and kitchen area (which aren't connected in a typical rectangular fashion).
Summary: This unit was the middle of three Sony offerings at a national chain. I should have walked away when I saw that none of the three would lock on to even one station...when there's almost two dozen stations right in town. But hey, it's a Sony, right?
Summary: Bought two of these as Christmas presents last year. I liked the IPod dock option and it works well. The Iphone will warn you it is "not a supported device" and prompt you to turn off the phone to eliminate any 3G interference. I do not do this and have no issues with it. The sound is decent.
Summary: [[ASIN:B00171T0SE Sony MHCEC78Pi Mini Hi-Fi Shelf System with Digital Media Port and 380-Watts RMS (Silver)] I like the system except the speaker cords are too short for where I want to place them and the system doesn't have any extra speaker outlets.
Summary: Great system! Could not be happier with the sound quality and features on this system.The ipod dock is a great feature especially with the controls on the remote. A little more depth than your average bookshelf system, but still is compact.
