My husband is an extreme audiophile and has an amazing stereo system in our living room but I wanted something that sounded nice for a fraction of the cost that I could plug and play in the kitchen and breakfast area. The first thing I will admit is that I'm not crazy about the white -- the color just doesnt do it for me but once I put it in a corner shelf unit, I got past that issue. The next complaint is that the part where you put the ipod is not made correctly (according to my husband, a mechanical engineer); the ipod does not sit upright on its own and I had to prop it up to get it to play. I only wanted to listen to the radio and play CDs so I ignore the ipod issue. The sound is pretty decent if you are not using it in a large room. It serves my purposes. However, I would say proceed with caution if you intend to use your ipod with this box and if you're looking for something to give you good sound in a large room, this is definitely not the one for you.

I didn't want to spend the rediculous price Bose was asking and a Cambridge I had bought a while ago didn't last.
I can't say if the sound is as good as the Bose or the Cambridge but it's good enough and the price is way better.

Excellent sound, easy to use and lovely to look at. What more can you ask for?
It is a good size for placing anywhere.

I was really impressed with the sound quality. Much better than expected. I bought it for my daughter's room because I wanted decent sound quality and a CD player with a repeat function to play lullabies while she slept. This has an above-average FM tuner as well. I haven't used the iPod function and probably never will. The display auto-dims and is easy to read without being too bright in the dark.

I purchased this audio system recently. Arrived in perfect condition in original box with all accessories. One word sums up the performance of this unit.... WOW! After extensive research of upper end compact audio systems (including Bose Wave III) this unit edged out all of the competition for all around performance, features and price. The Bluetooth, aux input and USB port (for mp3 playback on memory sticks) makes this unit a no brainer. Also has a full function CD player and remote. This unit also has alarm clock features with superior FM reception and can be used for that purpose as well. However, this performs so well, I could never call this a "clock radio" and tuck it away in the bedroom. Highly recommend!

This unit fits perfectly in my living room and have everything i need.
It's the quality of a Bose system in my opinion for half the price.

From the technical/functional side, the Yamaha is great. Appearance is somewhat lacking either in aesthetics or being
connected to a 'style' category. Remote is very user-friendly and appreciate the equalizer function on the remote.
Sound is easily customized with the equalizer to suit listener preferences, and the sound is solid at all levels.

Another good audio product from Yamaha (see my review on the MCR- 042), and this time a one piece unit. Sorry again Bose, but the TSX-132 has better sound than the Bose Wave iii for half the price. The thing I noticed most about the sound comparison was the much sharper highs, and just like the MCR-042, you can adjust the lows, mids and highs. Also, you can operate most of the functions on the unit itself, like when you have a bad remote control day. Recommended by this music lover!

Had somewhat high (but not unrealistic) expectations regarding the sound quality. Sound definitely falls short for an audio system at this price point. The bass in particular is very lacking, even after raising lows on the eq. Also found the sound a bit distorted, and the sound doesn't fill up the room that well (a medium sized bedroom). On the positive, the cabinet is attractive, has a CD player, clock display is good, remote works well for a small system, docking station is adequate. If you didn't need the CD player, would not recommend. The sangean alarm clock with ipod docking station (no CD player) sounds at least as good, has a battery backup, atomic clock, and costs a fraction of this unit (about $80 on Amazon).

I found the Desktop Audio System to be exactly what I needed. It picks up the classical radio station I wanted and plays music from my ipod with good magnification.
