    Decent sound but design flaw for clock display.

    Posted
    rnevelle

    This review is my opinion: I thought the unit was over priced by 20 to 30 dollars. Mainly bought it to hook into my PC and use while working. Paid over what I considered as a good value, because it had headphone jack in front and line-in from the rear, and easy to see display with a clock. Sound is decent, bluetooth test was good. Bluetooth is not a feature I will use, but did test it. When friends visit it is a nice feature to have, they can link their whatever device and play music. Played CDs okay. As of yet, I have not used USP playback. I liked the line-in feature in the back, made hooking up to PC easy. Speaker wires should be two or three feet longer, but that is an easy fix. EQ or lack there of - has only two features and thought it should have more. Again, sound is decent and not a major issue. Major design flaw is the clock. *The clock feature was part of the selling point. I was mislead by store employees. Not their fault, it falls on Sharp's design team for the unit. When in standby mode, "The clock should display." Instead, it displays "bluetooth". Also, once I have the function selected, example "Line-in" the system should have allowed a feature for the clock to be shown instead of "line-in". Whenever wanting to know the time, I must push the clock button and time is displayed for a few seconds. Sitting at desk, working and listening to music, I glimpse at the unit for the time. It informs me "line-in". I do not need a reminder the player is using "line-in". I would rather see the time. Instead, I have to hang a wall clock or close a document on the PC screen to see time on the computer. I wanted something with a simple glimpse for time, without having to pick up the remote and push a button. Clock feature is a design flaw that should have been caught prior to putting on the market. Having an option for clock display to be on is common sense. Upside, headphone jack works great. Unsure about front audio-in, have not used it yet. The clock design flaw has left me pondering a return to Best Buy for a refund. Other than the clock feature design, the unit seems okay. I have only owned it for a day and passage of time could change my opinion. Due to the clock feature failing to preform as told by Best Buy employees, I give it four out of five stars. If the clock worked as told, I would have given it five stars. Would I recommend it? Maybe, but I would explain the design flaw for the clock. Thus far, sound quality is good.

    I was looking for a small radio with AM and FM bands, easy access to a single CD, and a remote control. This fit the bill and has Bluetooth and a USB input. My house gets very poor radio reception, and i was not able to improve it with this unit. That could be a result of my situation, though, as this worked well in the store. The size is nice and compact, and I thought the sound was adequate. Again, I was just listening to AM sports talk radio and the occasional CD. What I did not like was that the button controls and cd tray feel flimsy. Additionally, the remote control was not well laid out and did not function efficiently. This unit has a lot of radio presets, but they program linearly, not by AM and FM band. That means you might have to scroll through 20 presets to reach your radio station, and there is a bit of lag there. CD and FM music quality were strong and clear, but the sound felt a littly tinny and hollow at times, no matter how much I adjusted the treble and bass. I ultimately returned the unit and kept the Sony CMT-SBT100, which I got for an open box price of $130.99.

    The best compact shelf stereo - very happy

    Posted
    atlshogun

    Much better than a Philips model I previously owned but returned for this. Very, very well built and attractive looking Subwoofer port, and coax antenna port, rca line in More ports than the sony unit which costs much more Very robust volume knob and dedicated buttons for every operation Awesome, clear, grammatically correct LCD screen which displays song info and all other important info. Strong bluetooth connection Quiet, well built cd player - for those who know cds still sound better Compact, but not so small as to seem cheap highly functional remote intuitive operation good instruction manual does not get hot manual eq! allows you to adjust treble and bass little/no distortion at high volume the only thing I would change is the power saving feature. please dont shut down my stereo just cause music stopped playing. At least give me on option to stop it.

    This unit will be adequate for my intentions in the bedroom. A few things to note though are as follows..... 1. The stereo does NOT have NFC pairing as Best Buy listed it does. I've combed the manual and no where does it mention NFC as an option. 2. The AUX input does not play as loudly as the Bluetooth or CD. 3. The CD player is extremely sensitive. It doesn't take much of a nudge to make it skip. Also worth a note, the CD player will not display artist/track names unless the CD text is in WMA format. MP3 will not show. 4. X-Bass just distorts the sound. It could be beneficial with a different set of speakers, but the ones that are shipped with the unit will be best left with the X-Bass off. For the price point it is a fair device, especially with options of Bluetooth, Subwoofer output and USB playback.

    Bought this system to provide Bluetooth connectivity for better sound when streaming music from a Mac. Connecting to the unit is not seamless - it takes a few mouse clicks on the Mac to make it happen, and you often have to pause and restart the stream if it's already started in order for the connection to work. Once connected though, it works reliably and sounds far better than laptop speakers. On the radio side, the tuner might be capable of better performance, but it's hard to connect a better antenna to the unit because of their choice of non-standard connectors for both AM and FM. Supplied FM antenna is a single piece of wire - would love to try a dipole. Expect what you're paying for and you'll be fine.

    CD Player malfunction

    Posted
    RobertP123

    This is my 2nd purchase of this sharp 50W mini-system. The 1st one I bought was from Amazon, and the CD player would not play any CD. When a CD was placed in the tray, the display read "Reading CD" then seconds later, displayed "No CD." Tried several pre-recorded CDs: would not play them. I figured I got a lemon, so I went to BB online and found one "opened box" in Excellent condition, so I purchased it again. Same thing: Reading CD and then No CD. What's the problem Sharp?!. Shame because the units did play bluetooth from my phone and the sound was very very good, but I need both a CD and bluetooth player, and I liked the option to play from flash drives.

    Was looking for a nice micro-system with input/output flexibility. Was happy with what this system provided compared to others (usb, bluetooth, line-in, audio-in, headphone jack, subwoofer-out, etc.). Also had basic but important sub-features functions included (timer/sleep, treble/bass/x-bass, am/fm presets, auto-off). Simple all black and clean design. Wire connections are provided for the speakers (line-out connections would have made this great system even better). Overall, very happy with what this system offers. Perfect for apartment bedroom or study.

    Easy to operate from front panel with minimal buttons. Advanced operations from remote when needed....honestly I don't use the remote very often. I went into the store intent on buying another unit. They were side by side. I had a salesperson pair up a bluetooth device for a sound check. Listened to about a minute and a half on the other unit, and bought this one when I heard the first note. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because the FM reception is horrible. But, that's where apps for radio stations and bluetooth makes up the difference. I use this unit in a 6 bay garage, and it cranks! (And has booming bass as well)
