Bottom Line:   
I have purchased this great micro HI-FI
system three years ago, and it still works very good.
The dynamic sound generator is very impressive for a so tiny machine!
The outputs permit the user to connect the HI-FI system on a PC:Whith a great sound card, the music turns fantastic!

Bottom Line:   
I have the CP11. Its great! But...
When proraming the tape to record at a certain time i might get it right 50% of the time, its very hard! You never know what side its going to start on.
I dont listen to classical music - mostly alternative & Dance stuff - but i find it sounds great even with DSG, i think that it (DSG) makes the Radio so much better
You can't read the time unless you are in front of the display and that can be annoying.
Buy it if you would like a system for your room, etc
If you want a very good looking, small but still powerful system... buy it.
I have had it for 11 months now and haven't had any problems, I have a heap of sony stuff like a walkman and that is dropped on a regular basis and hasn't broken so i dont expect this to either.
It wasnt that cheap in australia over 500 AUD$ but i have seen new models so this one can only get cheaper.

Bottom Line:   
This is a fantastic little machine. I've had my CP11 for just over a year now and have been entirely satisfied. There's been criticism on these pages of the lack of tonal control. I understand that the CP1 has nothing more than the DSG on/off option. That would be a MAJOR downside. However, the CP11s dead simple Bass & Treble controls offer enough contol to get the sound you want. On most recordings the DSG on and the Bass & Treble turned right down gives a lovely, balanced sound. The mid range is always going to lack a bit of detail at this price, but that's being pedantic.
Of all the stuff I listen to, it's only some of the techno/house that doesn't sound so great. Anything else, from Miles Davis and Ella through to Crazy Horse and Led Zep, this sounds great.
I play mine through some Kef Cresta 1s which are superb, but that's another story. The supplied speakers are decent enough though -and they look great with the covers off.

Bottom Line:   
I bought it in a big shop in Shanghai. I think this model sound quality is better than my former UX7000 and the shape is more classical. So I decided to put it on my desk.
