Summary: I received a stereo similar to this as a award years ago, I gave it to my daughter when she moved out. this stereo I bought as a Christmas present for my wife who loved it. You get everything you would want in a stereo with out going out and buying components and building one.
Summary: Beautiful sound. Loud enough for the party. Too big but not too heavy. I am more on the sound quality so i will give this five stars. Also, i like the microphone jack which new lower model sound system no longer have.
Summary: As a guy who loves audio, I like to have a good grasp of the products (particularly loudspeakers) in all sectors...computer systems, executive systems, standalone tower and bookshelf units, mini systems, you name it.
Summary: This system does deliver monster sound but it is HUGE! There is nothing 'mini' about this and it would never fit on a bookshelf. My first clue that it would be too big for me to handle was when the delivery driver had to load it onto a dolly to bring it to the door.
