MCD: Must Conserve Dollars

Belle Howell, Amazon
7 November 2010
  • Summary: This looked like a great deal. It was the perfect size, looked great, and offered all the features we needed. Out of the box, the wiring was finicky, and there was a terrible frequency coming out of the speakers when turned on with the volume all the way down. This is the worst system I have ever owned. I regret selling my previous components in a yard sale because this looked like a great deal in the store. The first unit started skipping within the first week.

  • Summary: This is a great simple piece of equipment that looks and sounds great. The thing with this is that it only has one AUX output and the cables are cumbersome.

Very Nice Product

Jeffrey Singer, Amazon
20 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought this stereo for my work center over in Iraq and it works great! We have a very large shop that we work in to maintain aircraft. it is plenty loud enough for the entire building but it cant handle songs with a lot of bass. but besides that it works great for the price. i like the fact it has the aux in so that i cant plug in my ipod.

Really can't go wrong for the price

James L. Strong "max4urmoney", Amazon
30 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought this with the hope that it would fulfill my video needs in my bedroom. It has fullfilled that and works better than antisipated. There are a few gripes, like not saving the time when the power goes out (no battery, internal or external), which is frequent in Costa Rica. It is a pain, so I leave the clock off, otherwise, I would give it a great review. It plays all formats and quite well. The receiver works, but needs stronger antenna than what is provided.

worst AV system I owned

Amazon Customer "gadgetfreak", Amazon
28 January 2008
  • Summary: By far, the worst AV system (in fact, equipment) I ever owned. I have 2 home theaters, but I bought this for my bedroom so I can listen to songs as I go to sleep, and wake up. The real selling point was the ability to play MP3 songs from DVD. I figured I could write on DVD and be done with it. I thought the DVD-Video was a bonus when I get a TV later for my bedroom. Well, it is about 6 months, and all I have is the "bonus".

Philips MCD

Erik "erikcaden", Amazon
13 January 2008
  • Summary: excellent product for the money - i have had no problems and I actually bought anther one 1 week later. "update" - 2 months later the player skips on 1/2 of the cd's i play. The DVD plays perfect - i would still recommend this system. If you do burn your own cd's try burning them at 16x speed, that seems to eliminate skipping when I play cd's on this system.

Good micro system with one flaw.

Jesse J. Robichaud, Amazon
30 November 2007
  • Summary: Great looking system and it sounds great too. The DVD player doesn't work at all. Even with new DVD's they skip every 20 seconds. I loved the sound and the look, but I had to return it because of the DVD player. I would give the amp and speakers 5 stars and the DVD player 1 star.

Buy it if you can find it!

anonymous, Amazon
8 May 2007
  • Summary: I bought this system because it was almost the only bookshelf system I could find that actually fit on a bookshelf. I thought for $99 the sound would be just so-so at best, but it sounded OK in the store, so I took it home. Wow! At home I was blown away by the sound: clear, crisp vocals, full, rich bass. Seriously, it sounds almost as good as my $2000 main stereo system.
