              The system was better than its description. Very easy to assemble. It has a great sound for its price and great functions. I would recommend it for offices, home shelf unit or for any teen's room. Wonderful system that is well worth its price.

                GOOD SYSTEM FOR THE PRICE, HAS ALL THE FUNCTIONS OF HIGHER END MODELS, BUT IF YOU ARE A HI-FI BUFF THIS ISN'T FOR YOU. IT IS BACIC AND SOUND IS CLEAR. THE ONLY SLIGHT NEGATIVE IS THE THE INSERTING OF THE THREE CD'S, YOU HAVE TO BE GENTLE SINCE YOU SLIDE THE TRAYS TO INSERT EACH CD. ITS A GOOD DESIGN BUT WILL NOT TAKE ABUSE.
