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.
Summary: It's a small unit with good sound, and all of the functions seem to work well. I don't use the iPod option, but I do use an MP3 player with the unit, for which an extra cord is required. Two points: I'm a little disappointed with the CD player. It doesn't seem as nimble as some I've used in that I don't seem to be able to get it to display where it is in a given track, and it only displays the number of the track itself when it switches to a new one.
Summary: I bought this item through Amazon Warehouse Deals. Huge mistake! The packaging was sparsely padded and when I plugged in the unit, I got nothing. Probably a bad transformer, but I was disappointed that Warehouse Deals did not bother to check their item before sending it out. Buyer Beware.
Summary: Enjoy the sound output in my home office, and it is simple to set up and operate. It takes little space and yet blends well with my decor. It doesn't offer a multiple CD changer, but that is no problem for me. Recommend it to others as a less expensive alternative to BOSE.
Summary: It is better than the soundworks that it replaced. Im amazed about the crisp sound for such a small unit, i like the sound better than bose. Im really happy with it. Only minus is no rds or text with songname when playing from usb stick. But the sound is so good so it doesnt bother me much. But yamaha should improve that when they build next model. But ill stick to this as newer does not necessarily means better.
Yamaha TSX-140 Desktop Audio System with iPod Dock (Brick)

Summary: I purchased a clock radio with AM/FM, but when I brought it home and played the radio, I was stunned at how awful it sounded . . . the music is so raucous these days, and so many ads even on the FM channels. I decided that I would be much happier with a clock radio that played CDs so I began my search reading the reviews at Amazon and elsewhere which were great re this model. I purchased it and WOW the sound is almost equal to my system in the living room.
