Summary: Poor, poor customer service from Yamaha Canada. I will not purchase from them again. The sound of the unit was satisfactory for me but in retrospect it did not measure up to the Bose Wave. What really got my back up was Yamaha Canada inability to remedy a defective remote control.
Summary: This is the best sounding clock radio there is. And it has enough power to be loud and use it for parties. The ability to put mp3s on a micro usb is wonderful. The CD player works beautifully. The radio is extremely sensitive. It is real easy to set without turning the lights on.
Summary: I've had this unit for two years, bought it overseas and it has been a fixture in my bedroom. Not only is the unit beautifully designed, the sound is excellent - I'm no audiophile but everything from classical to jazz/blues to pop have sounded really nice.
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.
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.
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!
