    Not near worth the cost

    Saywhat

    I'm really shocked at how shoddy this unit is. This should be sold for about $40, not $84+. AND this was on sale? The cassette player is so redundant, located on the side of the unit it only has one button and that is for FFW & Eject. I wasn't looking for this product to be high end, just a temporary replacement for mine that was dying. To that note, my dying one was way better and more useful. The built in FM antenna is so cheap, and the AM is internal. In the manual it directs you to actually move your unit to another place until your AM channels come in clearer. Really? NOT! The CD player is all that I probably will use as that's the only thing worth anything on this unit. I also have to add, I never write bad reviews. Today is a first.

    I was looking for a stereo system that would fit a specific spot. This works perfectly. It is replacing an older tower unit (still running great) but I wasn't able to move that unit where I wanted since it was too wide. This is perfect for a 12" deep shelf. It is compact but the sound is very good quality. I'm currently using the speakers that came with it, but might later adapt to a larger floor speaker on the other side of the room. I'm very, very happy with it. I just wish it would allow me to load more than just one CD at a time (old one had a 6-disc changer). But all in all, I'm very happy with this, and the price was great.

    Liked this product when I first got it, but now less than 6 months later the CD player has quit working. Product warranty only covers 90 days. Figures. Was at first excited to find turntable/CD/radio/cassette all in one system to play my old formats, but now extremely unhappy that I wasted my money on this machine. I do not recommend this product.

    Great system for folks who still have (and love!) records, tapes and CD's; and who don't care about being able to play MP3 files (I am not even really sure exactly what those are, or how to obtain them...). This is my first system that can play CD's - until purchasing it, I was using my computer to play CD's. I love it!!!

    With records being "ancient" and cassettes non-existent (quoting my teenage son). Half of the collection of music we have literally sat on shelves. I was worried for just under $100 this stereo would lack sound quality: Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon on vinyl= Amazing! on this compact stereo!

    I bought this looking for something to put in my garage as I was working in it. When I received this player it was way too nice to put in the garage. I took a player out of our computer room and installed this one. Although it does not have a digital tuner we receive many more than before and clearer. The sound is very good and it looks great.

    Sure, this system could have more options, but for the price, it's a winning combination. The speakers that come with the system aren't great, but are easily replaceable. I'm currently using Pioneer bookshelf speakers with this system, and my records and CDs sound wonderful! The compact size of the system is another plus (for me, anyway). I feel like I got the best deal for what I wanted.

    I gave this gift to my grandma as her birthday gift and she absolutely loves it! She got to bring out her old records the sound isn't super loud, but she didn't mind it (it was loud enough for her) everything is pretty super simple even after explaining she managed to work it on her own. Great buy!!

    I've been having problems getting my vinyl to work properly. For some vinyl, it skips and skates at the beginning them levels off. There are no clear instructions on how to fix the problem. But when it works, it has good quality. The radio and CD player are awesome.

    I was excited to find a component that featured all the features I wanted. I was very disappointed that the needle would slide across the record and skip each time I tried it. I took it back to the store without a hassle. I'm still in the market for a stereo that has a record player, cassette, and radio.

    Junk Product

    When I turned this unit on and tried to turn up the volume I was so disappointed. IF you live in a situation where you must be quiet, then it might be fine for you. I was very disappointed in this product and will be taking it back. Can't hook it up to my TV to use the speakers either, which was not made clear in the product description.

    Not the best, not the worst. It's a good system to use for easy listening. Makes a good second system but not such a good primary system. The cassette features are difficult to find. Rewind, fast forward are not features.

    Very good deal on the price we paid. Had also a CD player and tape player. On portables this is a great one. If your looking for high end this is not for you. If you want a bookshelf style to play vinyl and a few extras with decent sound def buy....

    Not worth the money

    I returned this item within one day of receiving it. The cd player played one song, then quit. Not worth even the small amount I paid for it. However, Best Buy refunded the entire amount, no questions asked.

    A good replacement for an older unit--saved me lots of money trying to replace music I have on multiple formats. Fits well in a relatively small space & makes good sound to fill a small house.

    I didn''t give it a four star because the turntable has not automatic features. It does not eject the arm at the end of play. Also the speaker wires are very flimsy. The sound it great with CD's and okay with albums. For a compact system it does the job.

    It works fine, just not top of the line equipment. I will search for a high quality item(s) to have these 3 features on it. I don't care about size, so this being compact might be nice for some while people like me just want better quality. It works fine for now, though.

    This player allows you to take it back to the 90s with the CD option, the 70s and 80s with the cassette tape player, and back as far as you can remember with the record player. This player has a great sound and is a perfect buy for any music lover.

    I was looking for a replacement turntable but not big into premium sound systems. This product met my expectation for a turntable and almost obsolete cassette player with the optional AM/FM Stereo and CD Player with CD/RW capability.

    By far the best value going for those that appreciate the vinyl experience, but don't live and breathe the difference. Super quality for the casual listener. Great for an apartment/dorm etc. Not too big.
