This is a decent CD player. I bought it to play CDs in my 3 year old son's bedroom. It looks nice in his room, the sound quality is o.k. I can connect my MP3 player to it. It was one of the only devices I could find that was not designed around the iPod. It does not have the option to repeat play of an entire CD, it will only repeat one song...that is the only feature I wish I could change.

**UPDATE** We have had this system for less than three months and the CD player has already malfunctioned on many occasions. The CD player does not even start to spin the CD and if it does start up, it shuts off automatically after a few songs. I am very disappointed with the system and I wish I could change my rating, but I am not able to change my initial rating of the product. I would currently give it only one star.

I bought this CD player mainly to hook up my laptop to it. I watch tv and movies on my laptop a lot, the screen is 15.4 inches, so it is easy enough to see it in my tiny little room, but the speakers aren't very good and even at full volume it was hard to hear if there was anything else going on in the house.
So I bought this. I had an RCA cord that would hook my laptop up to speakers with an a double RCA Audio In port. But this one only had audio out (to hook the cd player part up to the speakers). But I bought a cable from the local Staples for ten dollars that hooked the laptop into the CD player through the headphone jack in the laptop and the headphone jack style audio in on the CD player.
Over all I am pleased with the CD player. The sound quality is good, I have only used the maximum volume once, to see how loud it got, and was surpised at the quality of it and the volume. It serves my purposes.
I was also surprised at how small it is nice in my tiny little bedroom, and will be nice in the dorm room I will living in soon.
My only real complaint is that it is kind of difficult to change the time, I have managed to do it once, but I am not entirely sure how I did it. And the manual was very small, and therefore very easy to lose. Daylight savings time has happened since I bought it and the clock is now an hour off. Luckily it is kind of hard to read it anyways so I just go off of the other clock in my room.
I would recommend this CD player to anyone who wants to attatch it to an ipod or laptop (just get the right cord) and anyone who doesn't like things to be TOO loud. If you are one of those people who blast your music so loud the neighbors down the street can dance to it, than this probably isn't what your looking for.

I love GPX products. They're usually affordable, decent quality electronics. When you can't buy a Sony, a GPX will do the job for a lot less. They're workmanlike, and while they're generally not preferred over higher end or even medium end systems, they do the job they're designed to do.

Which is why I hate to say it, but this is a bad product. I have replaced it several times, and each time the system has failed.
The first time I bought one, the whole unit quit working after 4 days, and when I say "quit working" I mean it simply did not turn on, either via remote, by pressing the power button on the unit or any other method to power it up. It was dead already. I returned it and had it replaced. The second unit's remote failed after a week, and then the CD player shortly thereafter. I replaced it again, and this time the unit once more quit working after less than a week. I was exasperated, as I was looking for a simple solution and this player offered exactly what I needed, but it failed to actually meet those needs.

I recommend against buying this stereo/CD player, it just may be a lemon.

I was looking for a music system to put in a baby room. It had to have:
(1) a clock so my wife could watch the time while breast-feeding;
(2) a CD player for all the baby CD's we've received;
(3) a remote control

Nice to have options were:
(4) line in jack for iPod (ripping all the baby CD's to iPod is an option, but neither of us want to leave our iPod in there all the time);
(5) wall mountable & detachable speakers - to take up less room on baby's furniture.

I rated took two stars away because two of my must have features don't really work on this product.
(-) The clock is completely unreadable except from directly in front of the radio - step more than ~15 degrees to either side of center or 30deg above the radio and you can't read it.
(-) The "digital" tuner is really just a digital readout of the station on an old analog tuner. (ie the knob on the front of the radio is really just mechanically tuning an old analog tuner like what you have on most clock radio's; the "digital" part just hides the little pointer you usually see up/down the AM/FM scale). That's fine, but this means you can only tune the radio with the knob on the front making the remote pretty much worthless.

If you have the money, I'd recommend upgrading to the Sony ICFCD3iP CD Clock Radio for iPod and iPhone (Silver). This did not come up in my searches for "CD Clock Radio Remote", "CD Clock Remote", "CD Radio Remote" probably because it doesn't have "Remote" in the product name. It does indeed have a remote though.
