    This is the perfect office (dorm room, bedroom, etc.) sound system. The unit is attractive and does not take up much space. The sound is great - either through the provided speakers or through headphones. The iPod doc is easy to use and the remote control syncs nicely - you're able to control the iPod by the Sony remote. In addition, I hooked up a Sirius Satellite Radio docking station to the "Audio In" input and am able to enjoy all its offerings. The only downside I see is that the speakers do not attach to the control until making portability a bit more difficult.

    I like the styling and size of this unit and found the features barely adequate for the price. Where this unit falls short is the mediocre sound and the lack of an Aux FM antenna jack (only the CMT-LX40i has one but there is no way to tell from the box). I mean really the lead antenna provided is not really good for anything, granted I live in a bad area in San Diego county for Radio reception, but it’s not like I live in the middle of nowhere. All the radio stations around here and I get one in stereo and the rest of the FM dial is static.

    Didn't work with Ipod

    By hihellohi1234567

    from Longmont, CO

    Comments about Sony Black Micro Hi-Fi Shelf System:

    I was super pumped to get this music system due to the ipod dock. After having played mostly cds on it, I tried my Ipod, which much to my dismay, it didn't play. I followed all of the directions, checked all of the plugins, and yet the music wouldn't play. Actually out of one speaker I did hear it playing (so quietly, I thought I was imagining it at first. One speaker was playing so quietly that my sister insisted no sound was coming out, while I very faintly heard it doing so. And then the other speaker just wasn't playing anything at all. ) This was a super disappointing purchase. Back in the day (2003 era), you could get a $100 boombox that worked great and had good sound quality. As much as I didn't want to leave a bad review, it's lack of completing half it's job kind of left me no choice. No one else seems to be having this problem so...maybe it's just my system. Had the ipod dock worked correctly, I would have given the system 3 stars. All in alls, it's an okay system, but not great. (which I suppose makes sense for the price...)

      Very happy with my purchase. Very easy to set up. I like the fact that the speakers can be seperated from the unit. I bought speaker wire so I can seperate the speakers even further and it sounds great! Delivery was fast too!

          Not bad for the price given that i've only had this product for a week, but the only thing I find wrong is that I push the play button on my remote when it is in iPod mode but I get no sound...

          Disappointed

          By jackipoo

          from Texas

          Comments about Sony Black Micro Hi-Fi Shelf System:

          I've been a buyer of Sony products for years using all price points but was very disappointed in this deal. the "eject" button works sporadically. It take days before it'll spit out a CD. Sound quality not bad for the price. However, I just bought it...had it two weeks because its a long drive to the store but, will have to take it back. Doesn't work properly. Disappointed.

          Its buttons and controls are not very well thought and might need some time before get use to it for simpletons like me. But over all its the best value.
