Summary: I paid $350 for this believing it would have especially good sound for a small unit. I found the sound to be average and the volume to be inadequate for an open living/dining area. I returned it. For non techies like me, be advised that it has bare wire connections at both ends of the speaker wires. I found these tricky to do and was never sure if I had got them right. Edit: just purchased Sony CMTSBT 100 for $198.
Summary: It's OK...just! The sound is slightly tinny. It has adequate bass for my purposes -- but audiophiles would be disappointed. The unit barely fits a 10-inch bookshelf (projects out a bit), but fortunately the front "feet" (rubber tabs) are located back far enough that it does sit firmly on my shelf. Surprisingly decent volume for my large living room. Lacks bass, treble and equalization controls, and a CD tray (CD's are sucked in and ejected out from a front facing slot).
Summary: Perfect for my kitchen counter, not too big or tall. Was easy for me to set up and program. Fits all my music needs with radio, bluetooth and CD player. Sound is great and you can move the speakers further apart if you want more of a stereo effect and music in other rooms for parties, etc.
Sound quality average but definitely a quality built system

Summary: Sound quality average. Deep base tone missing , controls very easy to use and set up was quick. Nice looking in white . I think it is overpriced compared to other better sounding systems. I think it is hard for a small system to sound good without a sub woofer module. May be ok for a small room but it will not replace a family room size system.
