Summary: Apparently high quality tabletop stereo. Have it on kitchen counter under a 19" TV with TV audio out (TV speakers are TERRIBLE!) going to aux input on TSX-132. Result is very good sound although stereo separation of only about 10" is not so good (but I knew that when I bought it). Very convenient to switch between FM, TV, and iPod music.
Summary: I bought this unit for my elderly in-laws. They love to go to sleep and awaken to classical music. Unfortunately, there are no decent FM stations nearby. That was solved by the unit's ability to play CD's and, even better, memory sticks. I ripped about 20G of their classical CD's and they were off to the races. The sound is fantastic, particularly so for such a small unit. I would say it compares very favorably with a Bose.
Summary: I have been looking for a clock radio to put in my bedroom for sometime. I have read many reviews and was left wondering, why are people comparing a clock radio to a stereo system? Spending $500 & $600 for a clock radio is in my opinion a waste of money. Buy a stereo system instead. Now, about this clock radio, you get a cd player, a ipod dock , a usb port, and a aux. jack for other external devices.
Summary: Another good audio product from Yamaha (see my review on the MCR- 042), and this time a one piece unit. Sorry again Bose, but the TSX-132 has better sound than the Bose Wave iii for half the price. The thing I noticed most about the sound comparison was the much sharper highs, and just like the MCR-042, you can adjust the lows, mids and highs. Also, you can operate most of the functions on the unit itself, like when you have a bad remote control day.
Summary: Looking for a small HiFi for my bedroom brought me to this system. I looked at the Model above with bluetooth but didn't like the fact the speakers had wires. I only use this for playing CDs, I haven't set the alarm, and have no idea how good the radio plays. What I like about this system is how easy it's to use: slid in the CD and it plays. I usually listen to mono, so don't care about the lack of sound separation.
Summary: I didn't want to spend the rediculous price Bose was asking and a Cambridge I had bought a while ago didn't last. I can't say if the sound is as good as the Bose or the Cambridge but it's good enough and the price is way better.
Summary: I was really impressed with the sound quality. Much better than expected. I bought it for my daughter's room because I wanted decent sound quality and a CD player with a repeat function to play lullabies while she slept. This has an above-average FM tuner as well. I haven't used the iPod function and probably never will. The display auto-dims and is easy to read without being too bright in the dark.
