Bottom Line:   
what are you people on?!for the price you pay,this is a brilliant system,and knocks everything for six in the same price bracket -the power is incredible,the sound is crystal clear,and the bass is deep-all you bass nuts-you dont need bass thats gonna shake your insides around and make you mad-if its got a good range,doesn't intefere with the mid range and provides depth to the music its fine-and anyway-i've recently hooked up the system to my PS2,and this hifi produces the best quality sound for 2-channel set up for DVD playback..no bass?..yeah right..explosions sound real,the music never gets muffled or interuppted with other hifi's,and for videogames its brilliant-And with the huge siver bass cones and the wood encased speakers,this unit craps on the crappy lightweight plastic tacky units for the same value in terms of appearance-this system is a true bargain,and aiwa do mean quality for price afterall- they are part of the sony corporation

A guy working at Circuit City said that this system had a lot of bass and i trusted him so i bought it. No. It does NOT have lots of bass.. and being a teen that listens to hella rap, i was very disappointed in that. BUT, the clear sounds from the speakers were great. It would work a lot better with surround sound speakers too. I bought a 40 dollar bassbite sub, and now my room has excellent sound. The remote is great... it's completely full function. I do reccommend this system... but buy a powered sub with it!

Bottom Line:   
After reading all these reviews I felt I had to write something about this system. I am a casual listener, by no mean an 'audio freak', but I can at least distinguish a decent system from a really bad one. Despite my low standards, the Aiwa NSX-A555 came as a big disapointment. I play it in a fairly large living room, and just like some said, the system delivers a lot of power for a small price.
However, keep in mind that you won't throw parties with it either.

The sound is hollow, the bass is weak, very very weak actually. I have a wide range of tastes and play everything from Radiohead to Classical, as well as hardcore Rap and metal. The system rated ok with my radiohead 'amnesiac' album , as long as I stayed in front of the system and didn't turn it too loud. Classical music sounded really bad - don't even think about it. Rap was really weak, the bass (if any) hits you in the head, not the stomach.


Overall, the whole things sounds like an overpowered radio. That's the best way I can describe it.

When it comes to look, the system looks like a toy. Big cheap-o plastic buttons, video game like display, only three silly sounds settings (classical/pop/rock), and a 't-bass button' that does close to nothing. It flashes, it flashes some more, and when you turn it off, it flashes. It definetely has a 'teen' feel to it.

I would recommend that system for people who don't really care for good sound, but feel the need for more power than a standart radio or micro system. It would in fact, be a fantastic gift for kids or teenagers. They can play it loud, it flashes, it's 'cool'. But the person even remotly interested in sounds quality is much better off avoiding the Aiwa NSX-A555.

i have a 15" JBL and two 12" JBL car subs hooked up to my stereo and it pumps them HARD! my whole house rattles! it has more bass than my dads $1000 home theater system! i cant believe that this stereo is only 100w my freinds have been trying to mach me by buying the newer aiwas but they shut off or dont push neerly as much as this one. i love it. they want to buy it from me but it much rather have mine over the newest Awia

THIS STEREO IS ONLY SWEET IF YOU BUY SOME SWEET ADD-ONS SUCH AS A 12" OR A 15" OR A COMBONATION
