Summary: This was a Christmas (2013) present for my husband. He enjoyed it for approximately 6 months and then the cd player suddenly stopped working. He called Philips customer service and explained the problem to a technician who suggested several things to try to fix it, but nothing worked. The technician said to contact Amazon and the seller to see if we could get a replacement.
Summary: When I designed a corporate spa, I put this system in all the rooms. I like the idea of each practitioner choosing their own music. Not only does this play music off each therapist's iPod or phone, but it plays cds, as *well* as a usb memory flash for, say, holiday music no one wants popping up in the middle of July. The remote is keen; now that I have my own spa, it reads from far away and almost around a corner I'm pretty impressed!
Summary: I have one at our house in New York and needed one for our house in Phoenix. It was a no brainer, I enjoy the sound and the convenience of ipod docking for my wife's ipod and of course the remote. A winner in my book.
