I bought this after reading the reviews on this, and a Sony model, after my ancient Aiwa no longer plays CDs, and I needed an iPod dock. I hooked it up last night, including one of the bigger Aiwa speakers to contribute to the sound.

The sound is slightly tinny, and the max bass is a must if you want any decent sound from hip hop or other bass-heavy music. I often listen to classical or radio in the bedroom, and for that it seems to work well. My 1st generation iPod Touch hooked right up, and there appears to be some functionality with the remote, but I have to do a bit more experimenting.

As far as I can tell, most of the controls are on the remote. Don't lose it.

The design is sleek, and it has a dimmer function and sleep function, which are essential to my usage because I like to go to sleep to music. The sleep function only allows a maximum of 90 minutes, but you can re-up it to 90 when it winds down a bit.

I think for the price it is a decent buy. It's no Bose, and unfortunately Sony bought and phased out Aiwa, which I liked.

OMG! I am blown away by the quality of this stereo. Crisp, clear sound with lots of BASS with Xtra Bass option...I like that since I am a heavy bass listener. I paid about $123 with free shipping. Delivered nicely, undamaged 4 days earlier than specified time frame. Nicely packaged! Each speaker is 80 w each with a subwoofer and a speaker cone. FM and AM antenna wires are in the box. I basically purchased it due to poor FM reception with my current chepo stereo in my office and this thing is awesome with fine reception for the hilly area I live in. I knew that its not designed for iphone 4 but I still tried it (I dont have ipod & dont care about it either) and even though it displayed a quick message for not being able to support this device but when I cancelled that it started playing my iphone without any trouble while it was hocked on the top dock. Unfortunately Otterbox doesn't work again and you have to take it out of the box to snug it tight. I tried to connect my iphone 4 with usb cable but it didn't work. I think I should be able to connect the audio out from iphone 4 to the audio in into my sharp and it should work fine (Separate cable needed). Remote works fine (no AAA batteries included). No mute option which I will miss. Again, even if you dont have an ipod ..Get it.. this is awesome sounding superior device which will not last long. Most iphone 4 dock speakers are not that powerful with this xtra bass. I have phillips fidellio 8550 with blue tooth option (30 watts total output) at home for my iphone 4 (otterbox doesnt work either) but I like the power & bass of Sharp better (160 watts total output). I am buying another unit before they ran out of this product. Seller is great. Today is the first day this beast is played in my office and everybody is impressed with it's THUNDER!!!

I didnt buy this stereo/ipod dock at amazon, but it's a perfect bookshelf stereo, and i felt like i should express my opinion about it.it sounds amazing.Considering the price, It completely Exceeded my expectations.I made the decision between a Sony bookshelf around the same price and this one,and based on my experience with previous sharp products, and i dont regret my decision. The Speakers are wooden with bass ports in the back, and they really push out some wonderful sound.Everything feels and looks like quality craftsmanship.If i had to be picky about something and complain, i would say that the volume could have been a little louder,but by no means is this a weak stereo, it gets loud enough to fill my bedroom with great sound, but the volume only goes to 30, and the volume ramp seems a little off as it increases after about 25, it starts to sound the same as 30.It could just be my ears, but it just doesnt seem to change much, and 25 is really loud enough,and it makes for a great alarm clock in the morning. It's advertised 10% total harmonic distortion, but i've not heard that kind of distortion, except when trying to push it with Heavy bass. I listen to a variety of music from all different genres, and i can say that it truly shines when listening to classic rock,classical music, and live or accoustic music. it's an experience to be heard, and further proof that big things come in small packages!

I purchased this unit on the strength of other reviewers and they were right; this is amazingly good sound for a unit in this price range,and I am a musician used to listening to music with AR speakers! It is not a boom box for anyone looking for a unit to vibrate the floor boards, but it is a great unit for listening to any other type of music. I like that you can chose from different modes on the equalizer like voice, pop, etc. and it puts out a lot of sound that is crisp and clear. I would recommend it to anyone lookibg for quality at a great price.

I bought this as a birthday persent for my husband.... and it is perfect. Great sound quality in a decent size stereo (although the neighbors dont like how loud it can get). Love all the features & how well the reception on the radio comes in. He loves how you can even scroll through the iPod playlists with the touch of the remote. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a value, compared to the $500 stereos, but still wants something with some life to it. =)

This is a small stereo system with a big sound! I love being able to use a remote to work it! The ipod dock works out well when my grandkids stay over!Would suggest anyone who needs a compact system with a beautiful sound that is very powerful (I like to crank my music) to purchase this unit. Props to Sharp for getting this one right!!

This unit is compact and has a great sound. I bought it mainly for the USB playback feature. It also plays CDs and has a radio which I will use infrequently but am glad it has them. Although every function can be controlled with the remote I wish it had this ability on the unit itself. Not a big deal but if you lose the remote you have a major problem. I didn't have mush to compare with as I was strictly seeking the ability to play a USB drive. There is ample volume and bass along with an equalizer allowing you to set different playing modes. Once I figured out the remotes functions it is very easy to use with different features. At this point of owning it a little over a week or so I am very pleased. This appears to be quality and should provide many years of listening enjoyment. I would highly recommend this product. It arrived a few days a head of projected delivery. I also bought this unit for $30 (probably closer to $40 considering free shipping and no taxes) cheaper than it was selling for locally at Best Buy.

This is a great little stereo. The sound quality is very good. The remote is fairly easy to understand and use. It has nice features like the USB drive port. I can load a lot of music on a flash drive and play it, no need to burn a mix CD, and I can change my music variety by having different genres on different flash drives (2GB flash drives are cheap these days).

There are two little annoyances that make this unit miss the perfection mark. The first is that standby mode only works with the (annoying) demo mode on (which doesn't display the clock) and the iPod charges only when the unit is on or in standby. It would be nice if the iPod dock charged the iPod even if the unit is off. The second is that when the unit is powered off (demo mode off) it doesn't display the clock, which would be a nice feature for a bookshelf system (or at least give me the option to display the clock when powered off).

Overall I would highly recommend this unit.

Been looking for an all in one stereo for a while. I don't normally buy this type of thing without listening to it first as a lot of these systems really can sound crappy. After listening to all the systems at the stores and spending a lot of time on the internet I ordered this Sharp system from Amazon. All the reviews for this system were good, so I figured it was a good risk. I'm happy to say that this unit is well worth the money and really does sound pretty good. I was even able to plug in my old IPhone on the IPod dock and play all my music AND control the whole thing with the remote that came with the stereo. Pretty nice! On top of all that... no shipping charges or taxes. Pretty much a no brainer that this is a good buy.

I was a little hesitant about getting something like this because of it's size and my passed issues with the sharp brand. Sharp seems to be a cheap make. Not the case here. Not at all. This thing sounds fantastic! Great sound and it really fills the room and then some. It's a real nice looking unit and is very easy to operate. It has great features. This unit is just amazing and well worth the price. I'm very pleased and would buy another one. The seller shipped it fast and the unit was very well packaged.
