          Looks great on the shelf in my living room. Wanted something to provide quiet background music. This little stereo sounds very nice. It has a much deeper sound quality than some of the other stereos around my house.

              Lots of great sound for such a small package which was what I wanted.

              always been satisfied with their products.
              I use my iPod with this mostly and they work great together.

                  This unit is all that I expected. Great sound, well built, an attractive sound system for sure.
                  Took a chance and I am very pleased with the product. Used with my IPhone, CDs, and late night headphone use with a decent headset is fantastic.
                  Plenty of volumne, to fill a room if desired.

                      I had in mind buying a Bose component having already one in the living room. But, but I like giving a chance to others when possible, being, in fact, very curious generaly in life... I'm glad I did! I'm quite satisfied. It is a great buy. Very, very satisfied! Perfect with my IPod touch.

                        I've had a Yahaha mini system for 20+ years with no problems, so I'm a big fan of Yamaha quality. This system looks great, comes in pretty much any color and delivers great sound. The best part is that it has an iPod connection up top AND a CD player unlike most on the market which are one or the other. You can keep the speakers beside the main unit if space is tight, or stretch them out across the room as the cables they provide are quite long. Lastly, you can't beat the price either.
