I just got this Sony shelf system it comes with 2 speakers and a sub. I bought this for $262 including tax in Canada at the source. I found if you put the speakers away from the sub the bass from the sub sounds way better. The stereo has a the new 8 pin iPod dock at the top but with the USB connector at the front it controls all older iPods and iPhones. The CD player is a single slide out tray am/fm radio and a auxiliary 3.5mm in the front to connect. It says 700 watts rms not sure I truly believe that because the stereo is not very big. Yes I would recommend this stereo if you want amazing sound and nice bass at a great price and you use iPod or iPhone for listening to music. The speaker wires are not a bad length but the sub speaker wire could be a bit longer so u can move it around.

Model is mhcec919ip I gave it 5 stars because what u get for sound at this price is amazing not much else out there Sony is really the only one that makes iPod mini systems anymore

I waffled on replacing an older Panasonic shelf system that I've had for years and finally pulled the trigger on this. After a month of ownership, I feel I can finally give an unbiased review.

First off, the good:

Sound quality is excellent and the preset equalizer settings seem very appropriate for the types of music for which they are programmed. 'Electronic' comes through with clear highs and hits hard on the lower frequencies while 'Rock' makes AC/DC and Metallica sound like a live performance. Not entirely how much the 'Salsa' setting will be used but I seem to recall this is a Sony favorite, maybe for the Latin American market. I disagree with the reviews that found the bass lacking. With the Bass Boost on and the EQ set appropriately, cranking up the volume on a bass-heavy track will literally cause my windows to rattle. I've yet to turn the volume above 28 and I'm afraid the cops will show up if I do. This system can certainly deliver the loudness and it doesn't sacrifice sound quality for volume; at least not that I've heard. It is ideal for house parties.

The iPod dock makes use of Apple's latest Lightning Port connector which is great for plugging in my iPhone 5 but is a bit useless for my iPod Classic and its traditional 30-pin connector. I've yet to see if a converter works on the dock but you can also plug the iPod into the USB port in the front of the stereo and though it works fine, it doesn't look quite as slick as it would perched in its own dedicated dock on top. That USB connector can also accept a flash drive loaded with MP3s or WMA files. The AM/FM radio is fairly good but requires the remote control to program most of the functions.

I love everything about the system. The bass if turned up can shake walls. While the treble and mid"s still remain crisp. It gets louder than any system I know of. I definitely recommend this system. This is coming from an audiophile.

This stereo has amazing quality. I have been listening to music for a couple of hours now and I have yet to find a flaw with it. Defiantly recommend this to anyone that loves music and a loud bass

I rely a lot on reviews by other Amazon purchasers, who are usually right. In this instance, not so much. I am from the generation that grew up with component stereos, vinyl records, eight track tapes. For the past decade, I've been listening to Ipods and car stereos and thinking how much mp3 formats diminish the quality of music. I decided to "go back" to the days of powerful amps and large speakers, but on a budget.

First, I had a stereo in 1974 that had 35 watts per channel (times two) and put out a lot more sound than this system at max volume. The "700 watt" specification is very misleading. I frankly could not believe how soft the system was at max.

The bigger problem is the subwoofer and lack of a true graphic equalizer. On every setting (Jazz, Rock, Pop, etc.), the subwoofer gets to the point of distortion before the midrange and highs can even be heard well. I am going to try putting the sub on a foam rubber stand and covering it with a blanket, seriously.

Despite these flaws, the system plays CD's with a quality level that is clearly better than mp3. I will give it that. If you want to listen to Leo Kottke at a modest volume, it sounds pretty good. If you plug in a thumb drive full of mp3 files, you can tell the difference immediately, something is missing.

Be forewarned, this system will not play duplicated CD's, and it is not just a matter of copy protection. It will not read from discs written by a computer CD drive.

If I had to start again, I'd get a freestanding receiver-amp and buy floor speakers and a separate CD player. Yes, it would be more expensive. But it would sound more like the technology from 40 years ago.

It's surprising SONY sold this for $170. This set plays really well, I won't lie. Plus a dedicated bass, USB, IPOD, Aud In, totally worth it.

I got mine in today. It came in mint condition and it has a real sleek look. I plugged it in today and it's so loud that I'm afraid to turn it all the way up. I can't wait to blow the guys at work away with this!
