Summary: Bought this for my daughter and set it up to play over a pair of ceiling speakers in the living room at her place. It is compact so it resides on a shelf under a lamptable. Plays CDs and an iPod very well. For quiet listening and background music it's ideal. The cordless remote is great, it allows volume, power on/off and input source. Not something to drive large speakers. Recommended fo simple setups.
Summary: so far i like it i need better speakers i set the system for out side rock speakers wires are set up for the unit to be inside and rock speakers are ouitside i like it but i might have to up grade my rock speakers
A nice little unit - but buy the 332 model instead

Summary: I am so bummed I just discovered this version with the AUX input. I searched high and low for all the features I wanted in a compact size and finally settled on the 330. Overall, I love it, but was almost deterred from buying it because of the missing AUX input. Now I see they added it to the 332 and it's the same price, so get that one instead. Sound is clean and good, but don't expect the power and boom of a bigger system.
Summary: This is definitely a 5 star product when taking the price I paid ($187 for a B-Stock unit) into consideration. Yes there are some limitations....no AM (truly not missed by me), only 20w per channel and the equalizer is limited to Treble & Bass, but I have found that The Yamaha CRX-330 outputs a nice warm sound that doesn't require much tweaking.
Summary: I like this Yamaha CD unit, purchased through Amazon, a lot. My only problem is that I did not receive a description of all its features and was not aware that the remote was pre-programmed. While some of its features are obvious, I still have not figured out how to use all the features that I feel the remote must provide. The FM radio is the best I have ever had in my house now that I purchased a cheap dipole antenna to bring in more stations.
Summary: I always like Yahama receiver for its natural sound reproduction. I bought this to use with the Bose AM3 for my small bedroom. The sound is fantastic. I like the simple design since all I use it for is playing MP3 music from USB with sleep timer.
Summary: No AM. what? I knew that when I bought it. I just miss AM stations..Also, the usb will not work with your Apple IPHONE. I have a case on mine so I wanted it to work on the i phone.. The usb works well with thumb drives though. I wired up in series 8, 8ohm, 200 watt speakers...perfect..so far...
Summary: It's neat & tidy for the minimalist. The CD player works well, as does the iPod dock. But the low wattage doesn't drive Boston Acoustics speakers CS26 well. They can take 10-150 watts. So this is on the low end of power, with 25 watts. Also no AM radio.
Summary: The reviews below this one are so extensive and well done that I will only add a couple of comments. First of all, I am very pleased with this purchase. I wanted a small, but high-quality unit, to play classical music during dinner and while cooking. I paired the unit with two Polk TSi100 speakers ($200 for both) and I would grade the sound as being very good to excellent. The base reproduction is just fine with the speakers mentioned.
