Performs Like a Higher Priced System. Solid and Heavy.

L. Phillips, Amazon
24 July 2015
  • Summary: I've had this for a little over a month and a half. I've always sworn by wood speaker cabs. It was the thing I was most wary of, however, this system sounds great. I recommend spacing the speakers at least 6' apart. It comes with two 4' lengths of wire.

NO Tuning Dial! Speakers DO NOT connect to main body. Outstanding sound quality.

Lucille, Amazon

  • Summary: There is no TUNING dial, you MUST use the flimsy remote to do so. The photo of product is misleading in that you cannot connect the speakers to the main unit. We are a little unhappy with those aspects and will be contacting seller to possibly return. Sound quality is OUTSTANDING though.

Looks and sounds great! A really great unit

John Fedevich "drummer freak", Amazon

  • Summary: Looks and sounds great! A really great unit! My only issue is that it has no inputs (rca) on the rear of the unit. It does have a usb input on the front, but for some reason my Ion Profile LP archiving turntable is not working through it. I believe the turntable doesn't produce enough output.

  • Excerpt: I think it sounds great and looks like a real audio system compared to a lot of what is out there (which look like toys).

Yamaha MCR-B142 - can't charge phone while connected via Bluetooth + doesn't work with Android phones via app or via USB

Ramin A., Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: Contrary to the website description, the Android app does not work (it either crashes or can't find the stereo). The USB source doesn't recognize Android phone (Samsung S5) but interesting design choice requires you to select the USB source before device connected to USB can be charged.

great sound

Joslyn Siems, Amazon

  • Summary: I love the look and the sound. The sound quality is very clear. Jazz sounds amazing on it. The picture is a bit misleading as this is a 3 piece system and not all one unit.

  • Summary: Great sound but CDs get stuck and today after one year the CD player quit permanently. Loved it while it lasted but a waste of money. Going for one with a CD tray...

nice compact stereo

Sally Erickson, Amazon
1 March 2015
  • Summary: This little stereo fits great on my bookshelves and has pretty good sound. I just wish it didn't have the wimpy little wire antennae for the radio. My cats love to destroy these. It works well for playing songs from my I-Pod.
