A Kid's Review on February 2, 2007
I Got this SONY MHC-GX470 after christmas. It seems To have been Working great. My music teacher has a SONY MHC-GX450 that works just a great. Sony could put speaker post on the back of the speakers. They give very small wire so I don't get much bass from the subwoofer. What I did is pry the front of the subwoofer off, take the the woofer out, drill a hole onto the back of the wooden cabnet the subwoofer is screwed in to and thread wire though the hole and solder it on to the speaker. don't forget to cut off the old wire!!! After that I got more Bass. I also did the same thing to my SONY HT-DDW660 Home theater in a box package! Give it a try if you have the same problem I have!!

I had my MHCGX470 for half a year now, and use it for at least an hour a day. Lately I have been getting some high pitched sound when playing one CD, and have another one that skips on one song. It could be the CD has a slight defect, but I think it is the machine that is having the problems, or maybe I should say that it just isn't good enough to ignore any small problems with CD's. Anyhow, I think you are gambling a bit if buying this product. In the long run, Sony products never seem to stand up for me.

Also another complaint is that the buttons don't light up in the dark, so you need to turn the lights on every time you want to make any changes.

Don't expect a little system like this to fill your whole house with sound either. It does give nice sound for one room though.

If you can buy some cheap extended warranty with this product go for it.

A little update about this product... I have had it for 2 years now, and it still seems to be working ok.

I used to like Sony, but they have deteriorated over the years to the point where they now manufacture both cheap plastic junk alongside quality merchandise, and this box is in the cheap plastic junk category. One thing you can't get from online pictures is the cheap feel of a product, so I went to one of the large electronic stores to check it out in person (although I would buy it through Amazon - I just love 'em). The sound was ok (but not great), and "ok sound" was all I was looking for in a small unit for a bedroom. The unit has a cheap plastic feel, but the part that made me give a bad review was the speaker connection. The speakers have tiny little wires that come out of the back, and are crimped between the speaker back panel and the sides of the speaker case. This is fairly common practice now in junk manufacturing. There are NO speaker posts on the back of the speakers for connecting speaker wires, but just a flimsy wire for connecting to the main unit. There is NO strain-relief either for these flimsy speaker wires. A strain-relief would have cost less than a buck in manufacturing. Speaker posts, as commonly found in quality merchandise, might have cost a few bucks at most. After wiggling the wires a few times it became clear that they would break. Fixing this would require opening the unit and voiding the warranty. If you want to attach heavy duty speaker wire like Monster Cable, you will have to open the unit and void the warranty, or splice it onto the flimsy speaker wire that comes out of the speaker cabinet. Splicing Monster Cable onto flimsy speaker wire is just plain silly. Sony decided to save $3-$10 (max) in manufacturing and churn out more junk to keep the cost low. It is sad to see a formerly great company like Sony take the low road in manufacturing to save a few bucks, and sacrifice Sony's reputation.

I'm not an audiophile, but I certainly enjoy my music. Plenty loud for parties, decent for movies, but meant for music. Warmer sound than my Logitech Z-2300s, nothing has stopped working and it's been 7 years. Gets used daily.
