Amazing Bass


As with most refurbished units, there is some consmetic damage, in my case, it shipped with dented grilles on the subwoofer, and one speaker. For the price, you can't go wrong. You can play any genre of music, and the bass will come out on this unit....

Easy setup, simple to use, Subwoofer throws down hard, 3.5mm input to connect a multitude of audio devices, as well as computers. Replaces the cassette deck with an Ipod dock.

Volume maxes out at 30

Awesome System


I have had no problems with this device. The power is tremendous, it shakes the house at half volume. I love using this for parties, and the system is small enough to be easily re-positioned. The iPod dock is very handy and can be controlled via the...

Good deal


Got this refurb for 119. Didn't expect much but this unit puts out like some 300-500 dollar units. Like the sound, very clean for such a cheap system. I put this in the bedroom and you are much better off with this than one of those 200-300 surround...

Big sound for a bookshelf unit Attractive Remote gives good options, easy to use

No headphone jack No rear line in Other things on with radio cause static

Consumer review (



Bought this stereo at Best Buy. Used it for an hour on volume setting 25 the whole hour. Ended up having both speakers AND subwoofer blow on the *$200* system. Now I'm $200 out because I don't have the receipt for it anymore. This is my third Sony...

Get the Bass Bouncing


Got this for Christmas. Took me less than 20 minutes to set-up. The sub-woofer makes the bass shake the floors, and it can be turned off which is nice. Getting a shelf helps the sound quality! Remote works every time from less than twenty feet away. I...

FM antenna is a JOKE!


I love to listen to the radio, but can't get anything in on your stupid system! WHY is it a stupid "sony only" style jack rather than a coax? Stupid design, and Sony doesn't even sell a better antenna! I get better FM reception in my car in the garage!...

sounds great with cd and ipod only

FM antenna jack is useless
