I've been listening to my new Sony LBT-ZX66i for the past 3 hours. It does everything it claims to do and does it well. Unlike last year's equivalent model which had a (now obsolete) cassette deck, this year's model gives you a much more useful iPOD dock.(for most full-sized iPODs, such as my iPOD Classic, you can insert your iPOD directly into the LBT-ZX66i's dock. Some older or smaller iPOD's may require an adaptor)
The Sony features a 5-disc carousel-type CD changer, an iPOD dock & AM/FM radio, plus the ability to do Karaoke(there's two microphone inputs via quarter inch plug) and a headphone output which uses full sized quarter inch headphone plug.
This system is powerful and clean, and the "X-Groove" button will provide the outrageous thumping that your disco,rap, hip-hop & Dance music enthusiast craves. But here an important difference: unlike many similar systems from other manufacturers, when the thumping mode("X-Groove") is switched off, the LBT-ZX-66i can provide clear,natural sound, with crisp midrange and highs for those of us who prefer rock, pop,jazz and other types of music. Believe me: even without the added thumping, the LBT-ZX-66i is no slouch in the bass department. The 3-way speakers(with horn-loaded tweeters) are better than you would normally get in a system of this type.
There are number of effects modes optimized for various types of music(Rock,Pop, Salsa,Reggae,Dance,Jazz,Samba,Tango). "Rock" seems to yield the clearest and most natural sound. There's also a simulated surround mode(which I have yet to try), and a 3-band digital equalizer(you can create your own custom E.Q. settings in the unit's memory). I'll eventually experiment with these features. And if you have a turntable, there's a phono input.

I just got this system yesterday, but not on Amazon, and I definitely regret it. (I originally ordered directly from the [...] website...and it was a HUGE mistake. An absolute nightmare, more like it...I strongly suggest to anyone considering it NOT to buy from SonyStyle. It is extremely disorganized and second-or-third-rate - or worse - service) To make a long story short, the order ended up being cancelled, so I bought it directly from Best Buy (no complaints there however).
Now to the system - it is amazing. The sales rep at Best Buy tried to talk me into building my own system with speakers, a receiver, etc., but I was really just looking for the simplicity and convenience of an all-in-one system. And I got it. It sounds just amazing; the x-groove shakes the walls with bass, but turn it off and the clarity really comes through with still more-than-adequate bass. Lots of settings and effects to choose from, still haven't used the iPod dock but looking forward to it once I get my new iPod Touch.
The system is pretty beefy and large, more so than any system I have ever owned, but really beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. The other lesser models of shelf systems in the store (Sony and other brands) just didn't even come close to this one. They had a couple in the MHC-xxxx line and they sounded horribly muffled and inferior in my opinion.
I will be using this almost solely for music, and it seems to be everything I could want and much more. The price tag is pretty steep, and could probably come down a little bit, but I am satisfied that I got a really nice quality system for my money that will (hopefully) last a long time.
If I have any problems, I will update here, but so far I am throroughly impressed with this system.

Verified Purchase
I have purchased several "mini" type systems over the last few yeaars, looking for that perfect combination of iPod play / control and sound quality. Most fell flat in the sound quality department, especially bass response. This sytem is far from being "mini" in any respect.

However, this system sounds brilliant. I don't have to blast it to get good sounding / feeling bass. The bass boosting function (X-Groove) really puts out rich, thumping bass. Regardless of what my friends say, I still love my Disco tunes from the 70s - they sound great on this system.

I was quite surprised when the item arrived - the box is HUGE. The system is pretty big as well. I was worried, however, when the box arrived as it seemed very badly damaged / ripped and re-taped. I was afraid to open the box, but did, and the unit was fine, and plays perfectly.

It took a bit of learning to use all the controls and settings, and I had to refer to the booklet several times, but have gotten used to the layout and remote. It's pretty easy to use / control - the display is easy to read, especially with my aging eyes. I have finally found the perfect system for my bedroom. It just fits on the chest that I have kept all of my previous units on.

The radio reception is great, as is the karaoke function. But -- it would have been nice to have the center channel, which is where most recordings place the main vocals, lowered when the MIC(s) are connected. I don't think I'll have use for the Game mixing feature, but it's nice to have inthe event I would ever need it. I have not used teh CD functions yet, as all of my music is on my (several) iPods. I have an iPod classic parked permanently in the unit.
