Much Better Than Expected

Much Better Than I Expected.
I purchased the Sony CMT-SBT100 Wireless Home Audio Stereo Micro System to replace my aging AIWA CD Stereo system. The system is nearly flawless, and exceeds my expectations in every way. The unit is small enough to fit on a modern bookshelf or television stand, and the black case with chrome accents has a classic and timeless appeal. The remote control unit is small, black and easy to understand - batteries are included.
My primary use for the system is to connect it to my television to create a simple home theater experience. To that end, my only surprise was that Sony utilizes a 3.5 mm stereo / auxiliary input jack at the back of the unit - there are no RCA input jacks. This issue was easily rectified by purchasing a "Y" adapter / 3.5 mm mini stereo (male) to dual white & red RCA (female). Once the cables were connected, I selected the "Audio In" function on the Sony for rich, full stereo sound from my television to the unit's speakers.
My secondary use for the system is to listen to FM radio. The provided AM & FM antennas plug into a proprietary connector, and the FM receiver is strong, pulling in stations that I could not get with my older AIWA unit. Preset tuning as well as manual tuning functions were simple and intuitive. The Sony uses Radio Data Systems (RDS) to display the station call sign and the name of the current song in a single scrolling line on the face of the unit via a crisp blue LCD display. I was surprised that the speakers, which are not large, deliver dynamic, crisp range and great volume.
The unit will play one single compact disc (CD) at a time - I don't much use this feature since the unit is connected to my television, which is networked with my computer.
The unit utilizes a user-settable system clock along with a sleep and a timer function. You may program the stereo to switch itself on at a time of your choosing and play whichever function you select, CD, radio, etc. You may also set the sleep timer to turn off the unit after it has been playing for awhile. The unit will also automatically go into standby / off mode if left idle with no audio input for 15 minutes (not available in radio mode) - you may choose to disable this feature with the remote control if you so desire.
The most surprising feature of the Sony is its Bluetooth connectivity. Once selected, the Bluetooth function will connect the stereo to any paired input device, or phone, in the area. Sony recommends using its NFC Easy Connect app for Bluetooth connection - you may have to adjust the settings on your phone to achieve a proper connection. Once connected, the sound is voluminous and static-free, with great range. The stereo's Bluetooth receiver will connect through walls, so long as the mobile / phone unit is not moving around too much. The Sony's single line, blue LCD display will shift from "Bluetooth" to "Device Name" once a connection is established. Volume may be controlled via the stereo and / or the mobile device.
The Sony CMT-SBT100 Wireless Home Audio Stereo Micro System is definitely worth the price - I am very pleased with my purchase.

Superb sound, great quality, excellent price
Posted by: Viking01 from: on
I had an unusual need for this particular product: my 98 year old mother is mostly blind and partially deaf. A radio is her only form of entertainment. The sound quality and clarity are amazing. The graphic equalizer allows her to adjust tone levels to the middle range she needs for speaking voices and for music. She uses bluetooth headphones to block ambient room noises. The equalizer and the headphones are the perfect combination for her special hearing needs. The remote buttons are easy for her to find and use. We all enjoy this sound system when we visit her. I plan on buying one for myself in the near future.

Nice Stereo For Small Area
Posted by: FtlFlGuy from: Ft Lauderdale, Fl on
Nice Blue Tooth Stereo ( Bluetooth is complicated to set at first). Compact . When I read about it on line, I was under the assumption that the speakers were wireless. I ordered it on line and picked it up at the store. I asked if the speakers were wireless and they confirmed that they were. When I got it home and realized that they weren't, that was my first disappointment. But when I turned in on, and cranked it up, I was pleased with the sound, and happy with the remote. I decided to keep the system. For the money, its a good set up.

cd drive motor noise
Posted by: alrm from: St. Paul, MN on
I bought this unit to use at bedside to listen to music on CDs while falling asleep. I have tinnitus and the music helps to distract me from the ringing in my ears. Within a couple of weeks, the CD motor developed a whirring sound that was louder than the music. I took it in to Geek Squad for repairs and they said that there was nothing out of the ordinary and returned the unit unrepaired. I tried it out when I got home and the CD motor noise was still there. Geek Squad suggested that I move it to the other side of the room. Thanks. In the many years that I've had a bedside stereo, this is the first time I've ever had this noisy CD drive issue. Really very unhappy with Sony, Best Buy and Geek Squad.

Great office/bedroom stereo
Posted by: Skoob1 from: Florida on
This stereo is easy to setup, comes with a remote, and has some good sound. The remote is simple and straight forward, but you can also use your smartphone as a remote as well. Local radio stations were crisp and clear and listening to CD's was a pleasure. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice sounding stereo in a small room.

Small great unit with good features
Posted by: Edgabriel from: Heber, CA on
My dad old stereo broke so he needed a new one. Looking for an easy to use, nice looking and good quality stereo this one shined.
First of all have you seen the design on most new shelf stereo systems? With all those changing lights and mega speakers, it looks like college party, which is not bad but not right for a grown up living room.
This unit is great for small living rooms. Has all the features you may need, CD, Bluetooth with NFC, USB for playing music and charging tablet or phone and Aux input that can be used to connect a turn table or other devices.
Overal for the price and design is one of the shelf stereo systems in a box you can get.

I love this stereo. I bought it because I have a lot of CDs I wanted to be able to play, and I wanted better sound quality than just a basic cd player would provide. I got exactly what I wanted. My only complaint is that the antenna is not the best, and I had to make another purchase to have clear AM/FM.

I am enjoying my new music system. I play CD, Pandora, and FM radio. It has everything I need and it is well worth the money paid.

Best bookshelf system out there!
Posted by: vaca from: on
By far the absolute best bookshelf system for the money out there! Shopped, tried, and listened to several similar systems, they didn't even come close to clarity, range, and awesome sound quality. Also, controls, granularity/tuning sharpness above all others.
