Excerpt: Our house had to be renovated after the Katrina-like flood totally destroyed it and everything inside. We moved temporarily to a relative’s house and I was fortunate that I got the room of my cousin who is an audiophile.
Summary: The sound is ok for a clock radio, but there are 2 things that I really don't care for and would make me not buy again: 1. You have to set the alarm every time you go to bed, or it won't be in alarm mode to go off in the morn. 2. The clock time has to be set using the remote.
Summary: This system sounds good with an MP3 player docked. The FM radio has trouble getting a clean signal with several of my local stations. The controls are all clearly labeled and you can set the Alarm and all the basic things without consulting the manual every time. The alarm can be set to wake to a specified radio station of a specified playlist. There are two 24 hr alarms but you cannot specify days of the week for the alarm.
Summary: I bought this to use primarily as a bedside alarm clock that would also play music and charge my iphone. At the same time my wife surprised me with the Yamaha TSX-70, which is really nice too. That gave me a few days to compare them and see which I prefered. They were both great in their own way, if I only I could combine the features of the two it would be the perfect unit. I ended up keeping the TSX-120 for the following reasons: -Customization.
Summary: We placed this unit in our kitchen and absolutely love the sound it creates! We've had a Bose Wave Radio previously in the same location and this unit hands down is superior. The DSP effects are superb as well. I personally don't mind the absence of the AM radio, I never use it, and because it has a top mounted AUX port, I can connect up my Android phone and use it as a music player + get all the AM radio stations I want from around the world.
Summary: If you listen to music in your bedroom, this little monster sound great. it does fill a small room. If all you need is a no fuss small audio player in a bedroom or office this unit is just a fine product. IT REPLACES AN I-HOME PRODUCT WHICH I AM WARNING YOU" DONT BUY THEIR PRODUCTS" THEY OFFER NO GOOD CUSTOMER SUPPORT. THEY SELL ITEMS TO A ONE TIME BUYER, THEY DONT CARE IF YOUR UNIT NEED TO BE REPAIRED.
Summary: So this is a nice unit. The box and packaging are great. Setup is super easy and can be done without the manual. Sound is crisp, clear with nice bass and a warm feel. The display has a nice auto dim and shows information nicely. The remore is not a cheap credit card type and has a nice and different button layout. The iPod/iPhone interface & remote work perfectly with my iPhone 4 and 2nd gen iPod Nano.
Summary: First, let me say that I am a huge Yamaha fan. I have three Yamaha receivers in use throughout the house and several others that have been replaced scattered through several other houses. It really pains me that I have to give this a split score, a 5 for what it does do and a 3 for what it should do at this price. I guess that's what audio magazines rate as "value". Yamaha seems to resist adding features to their audio equipment.
Summary: I have been searching for the perfect combo of alarm clock and great sound for my bedside that would also have an iTouch dock. I had tried and returned the Boston Acoustics Duo-i Plus which also had great sound (and a slightly better FM tuner) but suffered from the low frequency hum at low volumes when the iTouch was mounted and turned on that so many other reviewers have noted. So I really thought that this Yamaha was going to be my ticket!
