Summary: O.K. just got this. Sounds very good for it's size. Although not that small. Tone is warm, smooth and clean. Speakers do not attach to the center unit. This is three separate pieces. Speakers are clad in metal on the top, front and bottom. The speaker box itself is composite wood.
Summary: Great little unit but was expecting more from it. I use this in my office at work so it is usually turned down very low, mostly background music while in my office. At low volumes you lose the low base, which is not too good at any volume.
Summary: Great little systems, Fills a large room with clear sound. Make sure when you get it to check out all the features. There appears to be a quality control problem as I found in my first unit. Amazon return policy was great and my new unit, which arrived in a couple of days, is perfect.
Summary: I have the dark gray micro component system (the light gray was out of stock). It doesn't take up much room and sounds great. My ipod does not fit in the slot but otherwise it's a very good system and I am happy I bought it.
