Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Small System Overall good sound, plenty of bass for a small unit. I use it mostly for IPOD and MP3 CD's. I've attached a DVD player as an aux input and watch movies through the DVD player while this unit does the sound. CDs play well and the IPOD works well and is charged as it sits on the connector. Good quality throughout. Very satisfied with looks and solidity of product. Price is very competitive, too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from dissapointed Chose because of good sound for a small unit. Very disappointed because of the external AM and FM antenna. Reception poor and very directional. Having wires hanging on the walls is very unsightly. Several FM stations missed during auto preset (had to manually input them). Don't understand why the antennas were not built in for such a small unit.
