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).
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.
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.
Summary: From the technical/functional side, the Yamaha is great. Appearance is somewhat lacking either in aesthetics or being connected to a 'style' category. Remote is very user-friendly and appreciate the equalizer function on the remote.
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.
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.
