Product Highlights
  • Powerful 540 Watt (RMS) Music System
  • CD, CD-R/RW Playback Including MP3s
  • AM/FM Radio With 30 Station Presets
  • Clock, Alarm And Sleep Timer
  • Audio Input For Connecting Other Devices
  • Flip-Down iPod And iPhone Dock
  • Remote Control With iPod Menu Control
  • EQ and DSGX Bass Boost
  • 7.9" Subwoofer

The Sony MHC-EC909iP Mini Shelf System is ideal when you want a lot of excellent audio from a compact device. It's literally small enough to sit on a book shelf (or kitchen counter or a lot of other tight spots) but with two speakers and a subwoofer that put out a total of 540 watts RMS of audio impact it's sure to be heard, if not immediately seen.

The EX909iP's CD player can play MP3 files from CD-R and CD-RW discs in addition to conventional CDs. If want some variety turn to the AM/FM tuner for some talk or music. You can preset 10 of your favorite AM channels and 20 of your favorite FM channels.

Your EX909iP has a clock and both sleep and wake timers so you can drift off to sleep with music and wake up to it too.

The system also has inputs so you can plug in other devices, but for iPods and iPhones it's got a flip-down dock that's compatible with most recent models. The included remote can control your iPod or iPhone in addition to the radio and CD functions.

So how's the sound? Excellent. Each two-way speaker has both a tweeter and a woofer and puts out 180 watts. The 7.9" subwoofer puts out another 180 watts and handles the deep bass. The EQ function enhances the audio output for different kinds of music and when you really want to rattle the windows turn on the DSGX Bass Boost.

Whether you enjoy Handel of heavy metal (or both) the Sony MHC-EC909iP Mini Shelf System will make them sound their best, whether they're on prerecorded CDs, MP3 files you've burned to disc yourself or on the radio.

      Sony did something great when they made this system, it houses some great features including some speaker drivers that counter most more expensive units. The tweeter housing hosts a great sound scoop that project the high frequencies out into your room. I've tested the unit with acoustical music, and rock... you will find that most genres are suitable. The only thing I would recommend sony place in this unit is the option to adjust the sub. Other than that this unit tops some expensive speaker systems. Depending on speaker placement you will get a Bose sound. 540w of raw power!!!!!

                  This Mini Shelf System packs a nice punch. Good strong bass sound from the sub-woofer and big sound that you would expect from much larger speakers. The system looks great on the shelf. B&H offered the best price on the web and they delivered it on time with no shipping charge. I will do business with them again!

                          For the price, you won't get better sound than this. I use mine in conjunction with my iPod Classic which I have ripped over 200 CD's to in lossless file compression for better sound quality than MP3's (MP3 is aweful). Overall the system produces fairly loud sound levels for a small system and it can be equalized with a few different pre-programmed profiles (like ROCK, TECHNO, JAZZ, etc). The bass is pretty boomy and the clarity of the sound isn't especially precise, but what do you expect for a sub $200 price? This doesn't even come anywhere close to a good component system in sound quality, but my home theather system is closer to $5K in price. The Sony also sounds a lot better than the noise that comes out of ear buds that plug into the iPod. I would say the sound quality is comparable to a decent factory audio system in a car. I bought this system to listen to music while I workout in my home gym and find it is perfectly suitable for this.

                            Nothing is wrong at all it sounds good and can handle loud volumes of DUBSTEP at parties so im happy i just wish the sub-woofer bumped a little more !

                                I use this system everyday and the quality of the sound is amazing.
                                I have always been a fan of Sony and this is just another one their amazing products.
                                I have it in my room and on half power it EASILY shakes the walls in the next room over.
                                So far I have not noticed a single flaw in it and I've had it for a little over a month.

                                  Sony did something great when they made this system, it houses some great features including some speaker drivers that counter most more expensive units. The tweeter housing hosts a great sound scoop that project the high frequencies out into your room. I've tested the unit with acoustical music, and rock... you will find that most genres are suitable. The only thing I would recommend sony place in this unit is the option to adjust the sub. Other than that this unit tops some expensive speaker systems. Depending on speaker placement you will get a Bose sound. 540w of raw power!!!!!

                                      This is a very good system and i would highly recommend buying it. The subwoofer is a great addition that delivers a booming bass that shakes the house at high volumes. If you are looking for a inexpensive system with a powerful sound, this is the product for you. It sounds amazing with hip-hop/rap, funk, rock, electonica or any other type of music with a deep sound. The only thing is if you are not too concerned with bass, you should probably look elsewhere. For example if you listen to mostly soft, acoustic type music this system may not suit you. Overall, this was one of the best purchases i have ever made, the sound quiality is spectacular and it comes at a great price.

                                        The sound quality is great and was easy to setup. The only disadavantage is that you cannot hookup third party AM and FM external antennas to increase your reception.

                                        I use this mini system on my desk at work. I am a band director and have a pretty discerning ear for music. This system is not going to wow any audiophiles, but I think the sound quality is pretty good for the price and size. I demand substantial bass when I listen to pop, rock and hip hop and the sub delivers nicely. This system easily overpowers my large office with very loud sound that is presented with no audible distortion. The remote is a nice addition, although not laid out perfectly. It offers some great Ipod control features. Unfortunately, there are no auxiliary inputs in the back. There is one in the front, but it is a 1/8" female headphone jack.
