I was very impressed when I first tried this product. The blue display is awesome, and the system itself is very sharp with its clean lines. My amazement ended when I played a cd. The motor in the CD player is extremely loud. Anyone who plays their...

Sharp XL 1700

I LOVED this little CD player, but it broke after only 3 weeks. My CDs started to slip and skip as if there was a loose connection between the CD and player. After a few moments, the player would stop altogether. (It was a gift and couldn't be returned.)

Philips FWR7

In 2002, I bought this stereo from Smart Bargains and it had and still has a much better sound than the RCA one. The reason I bought it was for burning CDs. I done a lot of transferring of my LP collection to CDs with good results. Although, it has...

Sanyo DC-DAB03 100 Watt Micro Hi-Fi System with MP3 Playback

By I have had 2 of these DAB units now, believing that the first one was faulty. I am a bit of a hi-fi fanatic, so I tested this unit against several other makes in the same position. The results were that the DAB tuner in this unit is seriously...

Teac SR-L38MP3 Wall-Mountable Stereo with CD/MP3 Player and AM/FM Tuner

Besides the looks, this thing is designed all wrong. It skips and has a preset high bass level that rattles the thing to the point of irrition. Another mistake on my part. Don't buy it.

To the guy that just wrote and to anybody else, you can extend the cable length. All you have to do is cut the wire in the middle (between the speaker and stereo system)get another long bit of wire (any copper wire will do) and just twist the speaker...

*** I think this item is fine and well worth the money - it isn't up there with the absolute best, but it isn't hundreds of pounds either. A good system at a good price. ***

Remanufactured Teac CD-X8 Wall-Mountable CD Micro System with Subwoofer

I bought this unit about four years ago for my wife for Christmas. I was dazzled by its sleek profile and clean silver finish. Compared to the other bulky black boxes lined up like so much freight, it was eyecatching. So what if it didn't play...

I bought this CD player over a year ago. I loved the look, yet the motor always seems so noisy. Last month, the CD player stopped working. It would have been wiser to have spent more money on something that would have lasted longer.
