Summary: I wish the sound quality was better. The features are nice, but the overall sound is not as good as I had hoped/anticipated. As a small-room stereo, it is convenient and nice looking, and I really like the iPhone/iPod dock. However, I would not recommend it to someone whose priority is the quality of the speakers/sound.
Summary: Yamaha has great speakers-- no doubt about that. My problems were with the details. For example, the remote control signal did not work 8 feet away from my bed to the unit, which made it pretty much useless. The Bose and its remote seems to be more solid and better designed as a complete unit. Returned the Yamaha, and stuck with my old Bose even though I was hoping for the fuller sound of the Yamaha.
