Summary: I bought this without doing much research and I am definitely paying the price of ignorance. This system is not sturdy by any means. If you want a player that can take a beating don't by this one! And if you want a great sounding system avoid this one! The remote functions poorly. You have to be a master marksman to get the remote to communicate with the sensors on the system. The radio antenna is awkward and often rolls under the foot the speakers rest on.
Summary: I lucked out finding one of these on special at Wal-Mart when I was looking for something better than those bulky and dull sounding boom boxes for classroom use. There are 2 aux ins, which gives you amazing compatibility. iPod dock, card ram, usb-- just incredible what you can connect to this! First I tested by connecting to my Macbook Pro. I am completely impressed by the sound.
Summary: Keep in mind that I'm no audiophile when reading this review, though I generally know good sound when I hear it. The DC910 is a great-looking, impressive system with very good audio capabilities. Buy one of these refurbished for $80-$90 and you'll have a great mid-range model at an economy price.
Summary: This is on the expensive side of the likes but it has the features that I wanted. Wife's music can be played from the USB thumb while baby's music can be played from the SD card. There are other inputs, Radio and ... iPod as well. The design is slick for wall mount and I think it is overall a fine product from Phillips. I, however, give 4 stars because of these: 1. The wake-up volume can not be lower (always at 12).
Summary: Nothing is perfect but I think the Philips Shelf Bar is pretty close. It takes a lot to impress me and the DC910/37 did just that. My intent was to use it in my bedroom but the sound was so robust and room-filling that I moved the unit to living room and kitchen area where it provides a marvelous reproduction of music from my classic Ipod all day long.
Summary: I am so happy with this system. It is the perfect size, easy to transport, sleek, and has an incredible sound. The small stature is deceiving; it's hard to believe it's capable of producing such a rich sound. The rotating dock and compatability with other media are added bonuses. Well worth the money spent.
