Summary: I ignored the plethora of prior reviews about how either the tape player or CD player died within minutes/days/weeks of use assuming that it wouldn't happen to me. Well, I was wrong. Two songs into Baby Mozart this thing stopped spinning and started smelling like something electronic had burnt up.
Summary: Good sound system and I love the size, not too big. Only thing I don't like is no power button, switches on side for tape, cd's radio and off. I guess you could get used to it. I do like the radio tuner, it's manual not regulated by a switch which takes you only to certain stations.
