Excellent System


I use the system in a medium size office room. Perfect for that. Glad it has a subwoofer out. I'm using one, and it only makes it better. In dock mode I'm inputing my Sirius service. It works well with the unit.

Good value for money


I was hoping to use with my old Record Changer, but it really doesn't support. However, for basic radio and CD use it is very good.
