Summary: Everything worked great during the warranty period. Then the cassette system broke. Ok, we use cd's anyway. Shortly thereafter the world of color went out, meaning the light show that displayed while playing. Later a loud clicking started, louder than the cd. Lasted for about 2 1/2 yrs.
Same problem another reviewer identified after 14 months

Summary: I had a hard time finding a multi-CD changer all-in-one unit. I really just needed a decent boom box that would hold 3 or more CDs. This one was a little bigger and a little pricier than what I had in mind, but at least it was a Sony -- and all other Sony products I have owned have been basically...
Summary: Sony has really manufactured an astonishing product here. This is, no tall tale, the best stereo system I have ever owned. There are connections to attach an Ipod or MP3 player, a computer or laptop, and if you arenot happy with the sound the equalizer.
Summary: I loved this stereo system when I fist got it in 2010 but then a year and a half into my owning it it started making a grinding, knocking noise. For the money ($326.00) I expected it to last longer and to be a lot sturdier, but I got screwed.
Summary: I bought this for my Grandson and it was so good that I wanted to keep it for myself... but, of course, Gabe would have none of that. Anyway, it is a great sounding little stereo with some really good MP3 features.
Summary: I purchased this stereo several months ago and have listened to it nearly every day. POSITIVES The sound is excellent from a bookshelf unit. It doesn't compare to an expensive component system with premium speakers, but it sounds great. The subwoofer really provides rich sound.
Summary: I checked the reviews on amazon and other websites and everyone was very happy with this unit for the price. it has a great sound, very clear with lots of power and no distortion that I can hear.
Summary: This unit has amazing sound and is very attractive. It is very difficult to find small units to fit into old fashioned entertainment centers that have real power. This one is a definite 10!!! The only trouble I had was locating a more extensive manual to learn the vast features.
