This system is great. The only reason people are complaining about this system is because they didn't do the research before they bought the product, and I did. I'm currently in college in a Music Production program, and I bought these speakers to set up as my own "home studio." Everything you need to know is on the box, but for the people who complained about this, let me elaborate. The iPod dock ONLY, I repeat, ONLY works with a 2nd Gen iPod touch! If you don't have one and are buying it primarily for iPod connectivity, either don't buy it, buy a 2nd Gen iPod touch online (they're pretty cheap now), or be the smart person and buy an 1/8th inch to 1/8th inch cable (that means the headphone adapters), that way you can plug in your MP3 player, whatever it may be, without any complications. Note: make sure you get stereo, if you buy mono without looking at the details and only the price, you'll be disappointed, you need stereo so you can get the correct panning, mono won't do that. I actually have 2 different adapter cables, one for my laptop/iPad, the other for my TV, and it works great. Now, the speakers are actually really good, and I'm not surprised. The cables are thin, which isn't too good for the stability of the cable, but as long as you are careful with moving the speakers around then you're fine. I don't even move my speakers, they haven't moved since I got them (2 months ago) and I have had no issues. Now for the review about a headphone jack so you can plug your headphones into the system...look, if you buy a speaker system like this you shouldn't even think twice of plugging your headphones into it. It's a speaker system, either listen to your music over the speakers or over your headphones plugged into the device that has your music.Read more ›

I brought a Thievery Corporation CD to Frye's and tested every system in there. This had the best sound for the money BY FAR. I like my music to have powerful base and thought about getting the same system with the sub woofer, but the highs and mids were not clear on that one. This unit had great comprehensive sound--clear mids and highs with great base. All of the other systems in this price range couldn't handle high volume and had around 150-170W, but this one maintained good sound as loud as I could turn it because of the 360W. The only drawback is that it's a little bigger than I wanted for a shelf system.

This stereo looks great and sounds great for the money yet suffers from a couple of bad design decisions.
I bought this unit for the computer room to add a little boost to my computer sounds and to allow me to play my iPod through.
Here are my thoughts on this stereo

The Good:
For sound quality: The sound on this unit is rich and deep and LOUD. It works perfectly with my iPod classic, the remote may be a little tricky at first, but you will get used to it, and with games and movies passed through it from my computer.
For Construction quality: The unit feels sturdy and well made and looks amazing.

The Bad:
For reasons I cannot fathom Sony's engineers decided to go against several decades of stereo design when they made this unit. As has been pointed out by other customers there is no headphone jack on the machine, which isn't a problem for me, but one must wonder why this classic staple of just about any other stereo ever made was left out. The second design issue is that the main stereo unit is quite long so although this is marketed as a "shelf unit" I do not know a single person with book shelves deep enough to fit this unit. To add insult to injury Sony decided to put two computer style fan exhaust ports on the backside of the unit which adds another inch to its length and means there must be a clearance of at least 15 centimeters behind the unit and the wall. So Sony has made the first "shelf unit" stereo that cannot be used as one. Oh well no matter, I'll just put the main unit out of the way somewhere and just run some longer speaker wire to the speakers which I can put where I like. Whoops. No I can't.

I wish I had known that that there is no headphone jack! (Ronnie's review came too late for me, unfortunately). I was very pleased with this system -- nice and loud so I can play drums with it with earplugs on, nice bass and overall sound quality. Then I discovered that there is no headphone jack. I didn't even think to see if it was included -- a headphone jack is a most basic feature that should be on every stereo. So, if you never ever use headphones, this is a great stereo, especially for the price.

I purchased this cd player to use in my gym where I teach elementary PE. The sound quality is marvelous, way better than I had imagined, even when I crank the volume up. The remote works from quite a ways away, which is important to me. I haven't plugged my mp3 player into it yet, but I'm sure it will work just as well. I wish they had put attachable speakers on it. They are detached and it would make it more portable. However, I'm very pleased with my purchase.
