This review is from: Sony MHCEC709iP Mini Hi-Fi Shelf System (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
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.

And what, pray tell, is the size of the unit? This is a deal-breaker for me and, since you mentioned the size, I am hoping you will post the dimensions. Thanks.

[[ASININE: Sony MHCEC 709 iP Mini Hi/Fi Shelf System is
200mmx360mmx389mm...this is hugh for a small house...
manufactur states system needs space of 10 cm above it, and 15 cm
between back of system and wall...cannot be placed into a closed
cabinet...with these specifications, I shipped this beautiful system
back without hearing it play one note...just too large...I hope this is
coherent/accurate and will save someone else the heartbreak of
returning this great looking system

What are you jabronies yappin' about? This is the same size as any "Mini Shelf System" on the market. If you took any time to read the specs before ordering it, you'd have known about the unremarkable size. It is "mini" in the sense that it isn't a floor-standing audiophile home theater system. Sorry to blow the wind out of your rant.

Let me make it easier for y'all. 200mm =7.87", 360mm = 14.17", 389mm = 15.31". I assume that the first number is the depth, the second is the height and the third is the width. By the way, i don't think the overall size of this unit is all that big, considering the fact that most reviews say that it produces good sound. I haven't purchased it yet, I'm still shopping around for one. I hope this helps all beautiful people.

Im moving and looking for a brand new stereo, me and my fiance love music and having party's and so forth so I need the booming base and loud sound. My last stereo I had my X-Box 360 plugged through it so my zune music was so loud and I hope this stereo will be the same if not better, better wouldn't hurt. I'll be commenting soon on it.

It comes with a remote control.

The technical specifications in the expanded description list the dimensions at 200 x 306 x 389 mm.
That converts to 7.87 x 12.05 x 15.31 inches. I assume those represent depth, height and length in that order.
