Summary: I purchased this audio system primarily to listen to classical music, both on cd and radio. The depth and warmth of the sound is wonderful and exactly what I wanted, having grown beyond my basic sony system. The yamaha system looks terrific and fits our traditional decor perfectly. Excellent value for the price!
Summary: We bought this for our mid-sized kitchen and are quite pleased. The radio has a compact footprint but a larger mellow sound that fills the room nicely. Good reception, and the controls are easy to learn to use. We like the USB port feature to create our own mix of music. The unit fits in well w/ our decor and does not attract attention.
Summary: I bought this for my mother. She ha some large thing from the 1980's and finally replaced it with this. Using it for cd's and xm radio (sinatra and 40's) I am amazed at this device and it's simplicity. Usable in any room, plenty of volume with low distortion. Would be great in an office.
Summary: Was set to get a Bose Wave... So glad I found this unit. Sounds incredible.. stylish looks.. very intuitive controls! At a much better price point... Yamaha gave us a real winner! Only bad IPod cradles not included.
Summary: This items has all the features I was looking for: CD player, FM radio, docket for MP3 player. The sound is great--and travels far enough. I have it located in my living room, which is close to my DR and open kitchen...can hear very well in all places. PLUS, it's compact and attractive! Love the brick color, and the picture is accurate. All in all, a great package that is very affordable.
Excerpt: This box offers much more functions than the Bose Wave Radio. I like its sound quality too. The Bose has no equalizer and it's quite unpleasant to listen to radio talk shows as the bass is way too strong. The only thing I don't like is its display. The frosted screen makes the LED display fuzzy. You may find it "dreamy". But I feel like driving without my glasses on. The bottom line is that I could not find any other desktop audio system better than this one.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Summary: Bought this for my Mom for Christmas. We have the Bose wave music player which can play the CD/radio. I got it for hotel points from traveling so didn't have to shell out the bucks. My Mom needed something similar but I just couldn't see spending the money ($500) for the Bose. That just seems way out of line. So I looked around and this unit seemed to provide similar sound plus a lot more input options for over $150 less.
Summary: I waited awhile to make this purchase ... should I spend more than $100.00 on a tabletop "boom box"? Already had a great system in the front of the house. Oh, find one and buy it, ASAP! I am so happy with this purchase! The sound, the user-friendly features, the SOUND, the size, the iPod dock, THE ASTONISHING SOUND. I think I'm picky about sound quality, and this little item delivers.
Summary: I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a compact desktop audio system. Not only does it have great flexibility in terms of the types of media it will play (which include AM / FM radio, CD, USB thumb drives, iPods as well as an auxiliary input), its sound quality is more than adequate, given that its a desktop unit with small speakers. The bass in particularly is exemplary for such a small unit.
