Stylishly modern and nicely compact, the thin-profile Philips MCM275 mini stereo system has a flat profile that can either sit on a bookshelf or be wall-mounted (with included screws). The CD player spins vertically to save space, and this system measures just 3.54 inches deep. It also includes a digital AM/FM tuner and two detachable 5-watt speakers that can mount individually or stay attached to the entire unit. You'll get an even deeper sound from your favorite music thanks to Philips' Dynamic Bass Boost and Digital Sound Control features.
In addition to standard audio CDs, the MCM275 is also compatible with CD-R/RW discs burned with your favorite mixes, as well as discs burned with MP3 and WMA digital audio files. This unit also includes a USB Direct, which enables you to plug in a USB-compatible MP3 player and play music directly from that device. The CD player has 40-track programming with repeat one/all/program and shuffle capability. The digital AM/FM tuner includes 40 station presets. Other features include a blue LCD, clock with alarm and sleep timer functions, 3.5mm headphone jack, and remote control.
Dynamic Bass Boost emphasizes the bass content of music throughout the range of volume settings--from low to high--at the touch of a button. Bottom-end bass frequencies usually get lost when the volume is set at a low level. To counteract this, Dynamic Bass Boost can be switched on to boost bass levels, so you can enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume.
The Digital Sound Control feature lets you select from pre-set modes that control the frequency bands of sound to optimize certain musical styles. You can chose between different sound settings--Optimal, Jazz, Rock, Techno, Pop or Classic. Each mode uses graphic equalizing technology to automatically adjust the sound balance and enhance the most important sound frequencies in your chosen music style.

1. The CD door button is located where it is easy to activate accidentally when removing the USB flash drive.
2. There is no provision for separately wall mounting the speakers, requiring some improvisation if you don't want them attached to the main unit.
Aggravating Design Feature:
USB directories and files are not assigned album and track numbers by alphanumeric file name order, but in the order that they were written to the flash drive. Thus, if you want to preserve album and track ordering, you must create the directories and write the files in alphanumeric order. Deleting a track file, 01-some.mp3 for example, and then replacing it later, results in it being assigned to the last track in the album, not the first. Since I run Linux, I was able to automate the sequential writing procedure with a simple shell script so I can change the music complement on my hard disk, blank the USB flash, and write it out in order to the flash drive easily. Windows users may need to take some care with their drag and drop procedures.
volume.nice selection of preset equalizer settings for different types of
music [or spoken].love the convenience of the small,light remote.
unit is easy to put together and mount.looks great [silver,sleek and stylish],and slim design
takes up little space.
lots of presets saves time tuning for favorite stations.
first problem: on some AM stations volume will mysteriously cut
way down,all of a sudden- and you have to find a solution.
toggling mute won't work.adjusting volume won't resolve it. switching to another preset,then back, works-
but only briefly.moving tuner a little works the same[only
best solution I've found;on bad stations move tuner a couple of
moves [left or right] then back to preset position.
that usually resolves problem permanently-untill next time you visit
second problem: some remote buttons started failing in less than a year.
on positive side--service people were nice and easily agreed to send out another. I'll not lower my rating unless next remote fails like first.
sorry for those who have had such a negative experience with this product.the basic function of main unit has been good for me. surprised at the inconsistent reviews.
The sound quality of the system is good for its price. The FM receiver is good and i don't hear any background noise. This system looks nice and sleek.
The only complain i have is with its remote. Its not as sensitive as i would like. Sometimes i've to click the buttons twice.
All in all, i would say its a good system for the price.
