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. The box has a sticker that states it must be lifted by two men. Of course it is too big (expensive) to return so I am keeping it and will figure out a place to put it.
