Not much to say except this system is beautiful. I just set it up and turned it two half volume and it got my floors (literally) shaking. The bass is absolutely tremendous. It's really rich and deep. Definitely good for my techno.

I turned on some rock too and the other speakers pick up just as well. I'm am 100% satisfied.

The seller also shipped it to me within 3 business days. I was surprised it came today. I was expecting it later this week.

The Sony LBT-GTZ4i is the best stereo system that I have found *in its class*. Obviously, I am not comparing it to $1,000 component systems, but for a compact stereo with separate speakers and subwoofer, this one is tops.

The sound is quite clear, even with the sub-woofer and bass boost ("groove" feature) turned on. The sound has good presence and frequency range. The bass boost (two levels of boost) allows the system to played at low volumes without sacrificing sound quality. There is a useful selection of preset equalizations, plus a three-band manual equalizer. Ignore the limiting names of the presets; just choose the one that you like best for you kind of music. I was pleasantly surprised at how flat the "Flat" setting is (perceptually; I did not measure it electronically). With or without "groove", that setting has great clarity, presence, and natural warmth without any muddiness. "Flat" is great for classical music. The normal stereo mode is excellent, but I do not use the simulated surround-sound, which distorts the stereo placement.

The FM tuner is excellent, even using just the hanging wire antenna that comes with it. If I listen carefully to the silent spaces between notes, I can sometimes detect a faint amount of white noise, which might come from the stereo multiplexer, or might come from the radio station or recording itself. You will likely never notice it. The impression is that the FM tuner is clean and quiet, with excellent sound reproduction.

The AM tuner, using the included loop antenna, has difficulty with weak stations.

The features and ergonomics are excellent.

The system can play music from a universal USB flash drive containing MP3, WMA or AAC music files (you don't need an iPod, although it does support iPods).

I love this system!!! The sound quality is amazing, the appearance acceptable and the features (Ipod connection through cable, PC outlet for computers or television...it's connected to my tv and it sound great!) that obtained with the system is exceedingly satisfying. Everything I wanted from a mini hi-fi component system. You will not be disappointed. I brought this from J&R Music and Computer World through Amazon which I highly recommended. I purchased the item on a Saturday (Labor Day weekend), within a hour, J&R submitted an email stating that the system will be shipped on that following Wednesday. That Wednesday evenning, UPS was ringing my doorbell. AMAZING!!!

This is a great stereo for the price. The sound quality is so much better than other similarly-priced stereos I've had in the past. Maybe a complete audiophile would need something more expensive than this, but not me! The only things keeping it from five stars are that I'm not crazy about its looks (they're good enough, though), and the CD trays feel a bit cheap and awkward (I would have preferred a spinning style like on an older Sony I had).

I haven't even USED the iPod connection yet--I am confident that will work well!

Like several others who wrote reviews, I was shopping for a replacement for an old Aiwa stereo. It was about 15 years old and starting to have problems, plus it would not play CD-R/RW's or MP3's/WMA's. I have a fairly large collection for my MP3 player and car stereo - some I didn't have in my regular CD collection so I was looking for a stereo that would play them as well as one I could put more than one CD in at a time (old one only held 1). I wanted something with good sound that could be turned up loud w/o distortion. I found it in this stereo.
The sound quality is great - crisp and clear, but with just the right amount of bass. The loudest I've had it is at around 14-15. I think anything louder and it would probably start to knock things off the shelf. It doesn't produce any annoying sound vibration or hum.
I love the USB ports - they allow me to connect a flash drive or any kind of MP3 player with a USB connection so I am not locked into using an Ipod (which I do not own). I also love that they are on the front so I don't have to allow clearance on the shelves to insert anything on top of the unit. The stereo has plenty of settings for different types of music though I keep it on the "Rock" setting because that's mostly what I listen to. I'm very happy with this stereo and I know the Sony name means a certain level of quality you can expect. I like the look of it - a cool mix of futuristic and retro with the lighted speedometer display. Someone stated this looked "cheap" - I disagree. Of course it was my own personal preference over the amber display - to each his or her own I guess.
It was easy to set up. No problems at all. However, as some have mentioned, this is a LARGE shelf system - much larger than my old one.
