Good Value – But Do Not Expect a Miracle

Summary: Yes, a lot of money for what is functionally just a clock radio. The capabilities of this thing does justify, but just barely, the high price tag. I do recommend it, but only if you need this unit's added capabilities. Bose Wave Radio?
Summary: Out of the box, it's not compatible with iPod5, and when you go through the trouble to buy a 30-pin to lightning adaptor (which in my opinion defeats the purpose of the dock) it doesn't even work! The seller, Infintiy Sales, was moderatley difficult to deal with, but eventually approved my return.
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: 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.
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.
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.
Problems with CD/DVD Eject & Poor Customer Service
30 June 2012
Summary: It's a shame. The sound is great. The price is right. But too many button problems. I bought 2 i765s which are the same as the i755 but with CD/DVD. The CD gets stuck in the system regularly. I can't get the CD out of one of the radios.
