Summary: I have an older model of this radio. The subwoofer went out after a couple of year. Also the buttons on the unit had started to wear out. You had to push very hard to get it to work. The company offered to fix it if I paid for the repairs. I would not buy another one.
Summary: I have an older version of the 755 namely a 740 CD but my complaints about it are very similar. The only good thing I can say about it is that the sound is very good. Otherwise here are some of my complaints: 1. When power is lost, all presets are lost. 2. The clock is very inaccurate. 3. The volume control only works correctly if I turn it slowly. 4. The AM and FM reception is not very good. 5.
Summary: The older CD 745 was an outstanding sounding music system. Great bass, nice highs and good stereo separation. The newer I755 is a cheap knock off of the older model. It weighs approx 5 pounds less, has less interface options and the sound in very "tinny'. The rich deep bass of the CD 745 is missing. A side by side comparison really makes this apparent. As with the older CD 745, the AM reception is poor and the FM reception is passable.
Summary: I ordered this radio through Amazon. The radio arrived and only one speaker was working. Later without explanation the second speaker started working. Also, this radio does not work as advertised. They do not say that it is not compatible with the new iPods. When i contacted customer service via e-mail (as they never returned my call) they recommended I get a 30 pin to lighting adaptor.
Summary: Have bought 3 and recommended it to 7 of my friends much to my regret. On all 3 of mine the CD function stopped and says 'no disc'. The first purchase was before the new owners and the man immediately sent me a new one. This one stopped in the same manner again and when found out it would be $150.00 to repair decided to buy another new one. The new one stopped very quickly but after the warranty of course.
Summary: I have the SoundWorks 755 without the i pod dock, I purchased it about 5 years ago. At that time they had a 30 day no obligation to purcahse period. You could try the unit for 30 days and if you were not satisfied you could return it. I had a Bose wave radio and I must admit when I heard the Cambridge I was blown away.
Summary: My problem is different than the other reviewers. As a chemically sensitive person, I have used a Sony mini component sound system, and a full sized TEAC stereo, and not had any problems with any of the materials. But this Cambridge Soundworks radio/iPod player is different. It seems to work okay, but it has spent the entire 3 years I have had it airing out in a spare room, as I cannot bring it into my bedroom, where I had originally planned to use it. The reason?
