Samuel C., Amazon

  • Summary: CD player stopped working just after a few plays and I couldn't return it for repairs to the East Coast from Hawaii! Too expensive for so few features! Not very impressive base (TOO TIGHT)!

excellent piece of equipment

juliet, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: This Geneva replaces our pre-amp, tuner, CD player, etc... I wish the sound seemed more three-dimensional, but I guess with one source it's not going to sound as full as two or three speaker locales. Genius design.

all that its cracked up to be

david ladner, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: i recently had to downsize my stereo. I didnt want to sacrifice sound so i did a ton of research and stumbled upon this and the ferguson hill speakers. the fact is that they dont sell the ferguson hill speakers that i wanted in the states, however the geneva delivers all that it promises to be sound, style, and size. Its the best for the money on Amazon.

Not a sound ...What a P.O.S... Don't waste your money

Kinortus, Amazon
26 October 2011
  • Summary: We purchased this shiny expensive box - which was delivered in a series of shiny expensive boxes, and the cardboard ones worked better than the main item. That is to say not at all. Oh, the lights flashed and something inside recognized that a CD had been inserted, or an ipod was present - but that was it. No sound. Yes, the remote worked-- the volume controls increased and decreased the digital display - but no sound.

Service as outstanding as the product

Jay M. Hammer, Amazon
17 September 2011
  • Summary: The pictures here and on the company website let you see how great looking this machine is. The other reviews here and elsewhere rave about the sound which your ears have yet to confirm (but will!). This review is about the service. OUTSTANDING. I have had my Geneva L from the first model year, and for years, now, I've had my every phone call and email answered, my every question answered, and offers to repair or replace regardless of warranty.

Muffled sound in a good box (doesn't beat Cambridge)

Victor S. "vs.", Amazon
2 June 2011
  • Summary: Geneva L is almost perfect machine: general one-box design, look and feel, incredible simplicity, very good FM tuner, which provides decent reception even with jokingly simple kit antenna. Generally speaking I was very satisfied with my 8 years old Cambridge, which does pretty much the same for quarter of price, takes less space and weighs much less. But Cambridge is kinda small for the room I have now and it goes to the kitchen.

A Few Things To Consider

Tandon, Amazon
13 November 2010
  • Summary: 1. Made in China 2. FM antenna supplied with unit does not fit (screw-in vs plug in) 3. The unit I received is not steady and has a slight wobble when placed on a flat surface 4. The tape used to seal the CD insert and ipod plug-in cover from the manufacturer left a sticky residue when removed that was impossible to clean without scratching the glossy surface 5. Sound is very good 6. Looks nice in black 7.

Very disappointed. Won't even turn on! Quality? Durability? NOT!

Jomo "bookworm", Amazon
29 October 2010
  • Summary: Just received it this afternoon. Purchased as a birthday gift. Birthday is tomorrow, Sat.. Unit won't even turn on. (It is getting power/proper voltage as I've tested that at the female end of the cord). Very frustrating to have paid $1,000.00+ for such a poor quality item. Adding to my frustration is a complete lack of support information at the Geneva website or in the included manual.

Room filling sound, and then some!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this with the pedestal for my son, who is a music fanatic, almost two years ago. It has performed flawlessly and sounds like a stereo system costing twice as much without taking up much space. Granted, his room is not large, but when he leaves his door open the full sound fills the hallway and out into the adjoining rooms. Well worth the price, and I'm thinking of buying the smaller model for my daughter who is now in college with even more limited space.
