Top customer reviews
No way can i reward a company for faking out its customers. Returned...
-Decent out-of-the-box speakers
-Pulls in FM Radio stations like nobodys business (read: good radio reception)
-Powerful Class-D TDA-7492P Amplifier rated at 25 REAL watts per channel
-Bluetooth is easy to use
-CD Player controls double as Bluetooth remote controls
-Has two aux jacks, 3.5mm on front, RCA on Back (NOTE: this is only on the newer ITCDS-5000a Model)
-Cool 70s look with working VU meters
-Can use your own set of speakers provided they're efficient and 8OHMS impedance
-Fake midrange driver on the speaker set (the speaker in the middle is plastic)
-Tweeter on provided speakers can be bright sometimes
-Some functions like setting FM presets cannot be done without remote
- Bass and treble controls only do +/-3db
-Does not play MP3 CDs but who cares nowadays anyway
-VU Meters are actually power meters (more on that below)
-Remote is kinda flimsy
The stereo I got is a newer revision (its listed as the ITCDS-5000a) that fixes some issues the earlier version had like a failing CD Player and added a second RCA jack aux hook up on the back. the CD player is a more robust version that's a lot less flimsy than the older version and all the circuits apart from the power supply have been condensed to two boards instead of four.
As for the sound its actually quite powerful and clear, when i got it i thought it was going to sound tinny but the speakers that came with it actually had a surprising amount of bass! though the tweeters on them are real the midrange is not, its made of plastic and is only there for cosmetic reasons.
The actual receiver itself has a silver brushed aluminum front that's actual metal and it has four big knobs on the front along with a set of chrome push buttons for all the other functions. I find myself using the Bluetooth feature the most and I hardly touch the CD player, only when there's a CD i haven't ripped do i use it and it works as a CD player should.
Now the only gripes i have with this is that the VU meters aren't really VU meters at all, there more like power meters because when you have the volume low they don't really move, they kind of twitch a little. But when you have the volume past 18 or so they start to liven up and when the volume is at max (which is 30 btw) they start pegging in the red.
Another thing is the speakers that came with this set had a FAKE midrange driver, this is the first time Ive ever seen something like that. I mean the do sound good and the enclosure is made of wood and its also ported but they could have done without the fakie midrange and maybe put the bass reflex port up front instead of in the back. But what do I care anyways since you can connect other speakers to this receiver provided that they are 8ohms and kinda efficient.
Right now I have a vintage passive KLH 2.1 set hooked up to it and the power output out of this little receivers class-D amp is more than enough, the bass is solid and deep the highs are clear but the midrange is a bit forward at times but still clean sounding. Besides the fact that it has a cool 70s baby marantz like look its all in all a solid stereo set.
Small CD players are becoming scarce so even though there were comments about noise while playing CDs from some reviewers I took a chance on this unit. My gamble has not paid off. Initially there was very little mechanical noise from the CD player but within a month it started to produce a noticeable rumbling while playing CDs. After two months, the mechanical noises would override the audio output at low levels. Occasionally it does not make too much noise for awake or cleaning house CD listening but more often than not it sounds like something is mechanically failing when using the CD player. If you have any kind of ear regarding how a mechanical device should hum peacefully, this thing will drive you nuts. It makes sounds like something is really, really wrong. It makes me wonder when it is going to start on fire or completely break down mechanically. I'm really not interested in finding out what happens first. I have avoided using the CD player since our second month of ownership. Now and then it will work for around 15 to 20 minutes but then I worry if its going to damage another CD.
It has warped two of my CDs to the point that they are useless in other players now. The CDs are old and I've gotten my fair use out of them so I don't feel I am owed for damages. If you do purchase this player, I would caution users to watch for this possibility. My judgement on this product is it is not a reliable CD player between the noise and damage to my CDs. The noise itself is reason enough to pick a different player unless you plan on using it in a very loud environment full of enough chaotic noise that you would barely hear the output of this device. In other words, as a CD player its useless.
The bluetooth feature, like most bluetooths makes a loud chirping noise when connecting. So if hubby is already sleeping, I can' t play my soft music without waking him up. Even with sound turned all the way down its loud. So it does not make a good substitute for soft music player if you are using your phone. You would need a dedicated device always connected to the machine. Otherwise it works well except the sound level for blue tooth has to be turned up to twice the level used for CD or radio. I wish there was more consistency in audio levels between functions.
Radio works fine. Even without the antenna installed it seems its sensitivity and selectivity are better than other radios in the household.
The blue lights are annoyingly bright. I don't understand the need to have bright lights that keep you up all night on everything with a plug on it these days. Just because you can make something exceptionally bright doesn't mean you should. If you can make it bright, why not make it dim also. Alas, I am longing for the days when audio products worked well, had consistent audio levels and didn't have mechanical noises louder than its lowest output level. That had dim functions for the control panel so you could play your favorite tape and later CD while you sleep or relax. Though it has the looks to attract old people like me, it doesn't have the functionality to live up to its allure.
UPDATE: We have decided to buy a used bookshelf sized system (radio, CD player and tape deck). It does not have bluetooth but what we get by regressing in 'options' is consistent CD player with great sounding speakers that blow away the speakers on the Innovative Technology system. I'm hoping that some day people will again value sound quality over 'ability to pair' with techology.
When I opened the box I noticed right away that there was a scratch on the top of the unit, which annoyed me right away but knowing I wouldn't see it on my shelf, I was willing to overlook it...until I set the entire system up (which was very simple) and found out that neither of the VU Meters work! They don't move at all. Not while in radio mode, nor while listening to a CD or while in Bluetooth mode. That was a big disappointment because that was the whole point of the stereo!
So not only was my stereo scratched but it also doesn't even fully work. This was a big letdown & now I have to go through the process of returning it when I really really love the way it looks in my home! :(
