The best sound you will hear for the size

Andy F "Andy F", Amazon
3 September 2010
  • Summary: Some other reviewers on Amazon and elsewhere have been very harsh on this piece of kit, and all because they have no idea how to set up a wireless network, or don't understand it properly.

Sony CPF-IX001 - Works great when set-up correctly.

Geoff H, Amazon
17 February 2009
  • Summary: Some of the reviews have been unduly harsh about this unit. It is no harder than most other networked audio streamers to set-up - I know, I've had some of them! The sound quality for such a small unit is excellent (helped by the sub-woofer in the base/power supply unit).

Great sound but...

J. Ellis "homeworker", Amazon
3 February 2009
  • Summary: If you wanted to use this as an DLNA box, believe the other reviews that tell you that it just won't work. Sony's early attempt at a box that if they supported it with firmware updates would be perfect. Stupid lazy Sony.

Once again Sony has delivered!

K. Herrington "hh45", Amazon
31 January 2009
  • Summary: Although sceptical prior to the purchase I read other reviews left on the website and decided to go ahead with buying the speakers. The standard set it is very easy; power cable into speakers which passes through the bass system, battery on the remote, dock you WM PORT player and away you go!

Great sound, poor everywhere else.

C. Mitchell, Amazon
12 January 2009
  • Summary: I got this as a bargain bundled with the NW-A808 mp3 player. Very happy with the mp3 player but desperately frustrated with the speaker system When used simply as a dock for the mp3 player the sound is terrific. However don't beleive the hype about it's wi-fi capabilities.

Good and Bad Points

S. Cunningham "scunni", Amazon
21 December 2008
  • Summary: I've had one of these for a year and a bit now and, even though it does have some bad points, I still think its an awesome piece of kit - especially for the size of it. The worst points mostly concern the initial set up to get it talking to your WiFi - I struggled for ages to get it to work.

Absolutely brilliant

Mr. Nicholas J. Hunt "MrFluff", Amazon
10 December 2008
  • Summary: Unlike other reviewers I paid for this and it is worth every penny!! The wireless was easy to set up, no waiting at all! My router is upstairs at the front of the house and the unit is downstairs at the rear of the house so they are about as far away from each other as they can get and the reception...

CPF-IX001 - SAVE YOUR MONEY!

Richard Swain, Amazon
9 December 2008
  • Summary: There are two words that describe this device. Tedious and frustrating. I've had one for about six months and I'm simply not impressed at all. It all started during the initial instalation, which was difficult because of the bad instructions that come with the unit.

buy it just for the sound!!

Dr. K. I. Williams "skivor", Amazon
28 November 2008
  • Summary: Both this and the cpf-nw001 now discontinued so some bargains to be had. I just got mine from John Lewis online for £49! Not too bothered about the wi-fi side so just using to playback from my walkman. The sound is just FABULOUS.

Great sound, but problematic for Wi-Fi

Gavin Wilson, Amazon
17 November 2008
  • Summary: The sound on this is surprisingly good, both in stereo and in surround sound. Just plug your MP3 player in -- either via the Sony-oriented plug sticking out at the front or via the stereo jack at the back -- and you're off.
