Great sound, but CD drive is fragile

Devin Cherry, Amazon

  • Summary: Great sound for such a small bookshelf stereo. Only complaint is that it's a bit fragile. The CD drive stopped reading CDs after ~8 months.

It could be better!

Lawrence Hewitt, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this to listen to mp3s and it does play them, but the controls work when they want to. For the money, you'd think you'd get a better quality radio. And for low to medium volume, the sound quality is decent at best, but for louder volumes the quality drops tremendously.

Nice Industrial Design, Leaves a Few Things to be Desired

unknown, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: This unit looks good on our bookshelf w/ our books, pictures, etc. and it can play loudly clearly for its size. It's also nice that a variety of colors were offered. I think it's a good case-study of industrial design b/c it has incredible functionality, a simple beauty, but a curious, glaring...

Disappointing sound quality and controls

tlicious, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Like everyone else, I wanted a combination CD, radio, iPod dock, and clock for the bedroom. I also wanted it to fit in a small footprint and to be somewhat stylish. I got the latter two, but sacrificed everything else.

The good and bad

Skibumwong, Amazon
14 July 2012
  • Summary: The good, has nice rich sound. Nice form factor, but am confused as to whether to place the speakers apart separately or keep together as shown. The bad, the speakers keep buzzing when my iPhone is in it and streaming from iTunes.

Not good for large music collections on an external hard drive

VT Steelers, Amazon
23 March 2012
  • Summary: I keep all my music on a small portable USB drive, probably about 300 GB. This little drive works great in my honda with its USB input- the factory stereo has a jog dial that allows you to spin through the albums (folders) 1 by 1.

Yamaha MCR-040 in Dark Gray

David deJongh, Amazon
27 June 2011
  • Summary: We bought this unit to replace the Onkyo micro unit that sat in our kitchen, but which gave up the ghost earlier this year. It's slightly larger than the Onkyo, which meant I had to do a little additional surgery to the built-in bookcase that it sits in, but no matter.
