As a table radio it's pretty good. The sound is better than my old Sony, but not as good as my Boston Acoustics Duo-I Plus. It has decent bass for the size. The FM radio reception was good too. I love that it has CD, Ipod and USB, but the lack of a useful alarm clock means I packed it up and shipped it back :(
Note: I am waiting for the Yahama TSX-140 I ordered to arrive. It is much more expensive, but it has everything I need (CD, Ipod and Alarm Clock). Hopefully it will work out better than this TEAC.
Anyway, here's my review:
Size- Footprint is quite large for a bedside unit, but perfect for kitchen, nursery etc. Size / sound will fill a reasonable room
Sound- I guess it depends how much you paid for the unit. I think Teac suggest a price point of $249. At that it is not worth the money, get a Yamaha MCR040 Micro System. I paid sub-$100 on Amazon and at that it is a STEAL!!! Definitely the best sound for under $100 and absolutely the best functionality for under $100. The unit has twin rear facing bass ports which is a nice touch although Bass is woolly in places and Treble can be a bit harsh- my advice is just leave the tone control flat as it is out of the box and enjoy it for what it is.
Looks- I like it! But beauty is in the eye of the beholder so it may not to be everyone's tastes. It could look even better by getting rid of the cheap chrome effect Teac logo on the front and why oh why do companies put these ridiculous filler caps over the iPod dock. Not everyone has an iPod so a discrete flat cap would be better than the ridiculous cover that is on it, but other than that it looks good
Functionality- the unit does everything and does it reasonably well. CD player is great, with a nice slot loading mechanism on the front. Tuner performs well in FM, picks up stations really easily and they sound good.Read more ›
Accidently really! I had played a CD, and when it ended I turned the unit off, then turned it back on. Then I hit the "function"
button until the time appeared and "AUX" appeared over it. I stopped there to see what would happen, and behold! it stayed lit !!
This is not explained in the manual.
This is a BAD design!
If the following are not touched or changed, deviice will work OK:
I don't have the MP3, USB, or IPAD.
It's a BAD design. Don't buy it!
Pros: Very Good Sound Quality; Several Device Playback Options; Compact Unit; Good Radio Reception
Cons: Can't adjust alarm-device(CD, Radio, etc...) below '5'; Clock Display is always Off unless unit is powered On.
