Bottom Line:   
This is really a cool stereo. Other posters are complaining that the 5cd changer does not play all discs in random mode. IT DOES!!! press the CD MANAGER button once and press RANDOM and presto! 5discs in random mode, but it is quite noisy indeed. The sound is perfect. There are 2 weak points: tuner has no RDS and is has only 12 presets per band (AM/FM) total of 24 presets.

Bottom Line:   
Its an ok stereo if you don't mind the bass being weak. The highs are excellent, it is easy to work with. So I guess its an ok stereo if you don't want tons of bass.

Bottom Line:   
Simply the best system you can buy at this price. The only weakness is the lack of an RDS tuner, but the sound is powerful and clear, you've got various sound modes to choose, double auto-reverse cassette deck, 5 CD changer and a funny display with spectrum analyzer.
Most important: build quality is excellent compared to other system I've used (buttons, controls and mechanical parts feel solid).

Bottom Line:   
Well I almost did not purchase this system because I read a report that you could not use the random select on all 5 CD's .
Come to find out, YOU CAN. I shoped around and I tell you what, for the price, this is a great system. It sounds better then many of the other systems I checked out in the same price range. Shop around becuase it often goes on sale and a lot of stores carry it. The main dowmfal I see is that it takes awhile for the CD's to switch in the player. So if you are using the random mode you have to wait for the next disk to get cued up and the song to start, plus it is very noisy. However, for the price I paid, $190 at Circut City, if that is the only downfall, I can live with it. Another feature i was told that you can do but i have not tried it, is program only the songs you want to be played on each disk and hit the random mode, that seems like a nice feature. The sound quality and volume is plenty for my bedroom and if needed it would do just fine in a living room. If you are looking for a mini system in the $250 and below range, this is a good one to pick.
