I just bought this and so far, I am pretty impressed with it for the price. There is so much more clarity in comparison to the 300w RCA that was sitting next to this model.....w/ only a $10 price difference. I completely didn't hesitate to drop the extra $10 for the better sound. I've NEVER had issues with a Sony ANYTHING and this is no exception.

Yes, a single stall CD player, but this is NO surprise. Our world is going DIGITAL and even the model up from this (w/ the subwoofer) is only one CD.

It is also my first system with an iPod dock and that sucker cranks it out like CD quality with just as much power as the FM/CD option(s).

Is it comparing to one of those $600-$800 systems??? Of course not!!! It's not supposed to!!! But I guarantee that if you live in an apartment, your neighbor won't be happy if you turn it up too loud...because it does have the output w/ the clear and crisp sound.
