Excerpt: But since iPods already deliver excellent sound quality, this was not too noticeable in this portable player . Nevertheless, despite its lack of equalizer, Yamaha can keep up with similar portable docking systems in terms of audio quality. Yamaha tried to spruce up the player by providing four sound shaping options (Normal, Mild, Heavy and Live), but to me, there was no significant enhancement in the sound.
Summary: I recently purchased a Yamaha TSX-120. I am an avid music lover and currently own and enjoy audiophile equipment in my home,therefore I feel I am in a position to make a fair assessment of the Yamaha desktop audio system,TSX-120. I have this in my kitchen and use it daily to listen to FM and my ipod. It's really great. It has a clean sound and delivers music and audio signals effortlessly. I am so impressed I bought one for my 25 year old daughter, as well.
Summary: Great sounding unit. Does exactly what it says it will. Originally purchased the Pioneer all-in-one unit but that was lacking AM radio and DAB+. Swapped it for the Yamaha (which is more expensive) but the sound is definitely better.
