Summary: When I received this Stereo, I expected everything to come with it. When I finally got it three weeks after I ordered it, there was no remote or A.M. F.M cable. I agree with the other guys, the Ipod dock is cheap. I felt that if i pressed down on it to hard it would break! The sound is really great!
Summary: I've had this system for about 1.5 yrs purchased at Walmart and it works and looks like new. I purchased it not because of loudness, but because I found it was reasonably well balanced. Good low/mid and highs. The system is a bit flashy, but I got used to it.
Summary: I bought this for my son for Chirstmas and I couldn't beleive the sound, you would have thought I spent more money then I did. Nice feature that he can put his IPOD on it and listen to that music that way too.
Summary: For the money, this is an excellent shelf-size sound system; heavy clear bass, crisp highs. The features are easy to use and make sense. Remote is intuitive and handles a wide range of manipulations. The subwoofer is a great added benefit for a system this size. I recommend this product.
For the price, outstanding sound you won't get with any other brand

Summary: This is such a great stereo. I listen to it almost every day at my dorm in college. I rarely even have it over 1/2 volume, and it's still so LOUD! This goes way louder than my surround sound system back home. Even without the sub it's hang banging bass. 530 Watts is great, no problems at all.
Summary: When I asked for a Sony shelf system for my birthday, my husband was puzzled. We have a really good home theater system. I was just so weary of working 2 or 3 remote controls to select an input source, select a function on that source, select a speaker system setup, etc etc.
Summary: System has decent sound, but some quirks: Odd speaker wiring, 4 wires to each speaker saves Sony $$ on crossover design but you can't upgrade speakers. Antenna is a 3 pin plug, can't upgrade with 3rd party antenna, and reception is only average with included antenna.
