We purchased the MYDASH CD/DVD player for basically CD use. Our kitchen dining area doesn't have a TV and we needed to be able to play CD's and stream music. When first trying out the CD player, we had it on the kitchen island and the music sound wasn't as good as I had hoped. However, once we placed it against the wall the sound was greatly improved. The only real negative is that the CD cover opens from the bottom and makes it a little hard to change out the CD. For the price, it's a good buy.
