      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. - Chipper F. Xavier, Esq.

      I did not like this unit in the store. It was not picking up any radio stations, and the functions had some lag time. I saw it open box for $130.99 and decided to give it a try where it would live. I really wanted AM and FM radio and easy access to a single cd player. Very few mini-systems or shelf-systems are being made with AM radio these days. I get VERY bad radio reception in the front room of my house. While this is not perfect, it pulls in the most AM and FM stations of any radio I tried, which includes a borrowed $1,000 Onkyo receiver. Again, my reception is situational, so this would probably work spectacularly well for anyone else! What I do like about the radio tuning is that it has the option to receive FM stations in either stereo or mono (which helps clean up weak FM stations). Additionally, the CD player works well, Bluetooth is quick to connect, and there is a USB input on the front of the unit. I love the retro, brushed steel look with the large volume knob, but it is actually plastic. This in no way means it is low quality. The speaker cabinets are wood. The remote control is a little chunky, but it fits in your hand well and is well laid out. I also use the sleep timer and wake to radio feature. It is a little annoying to program the wake feature (and that is the first thing to erase after a power outage), but it a nice feature to have. The remote has great range and seems to work around corners in my house. I do not like that the speaker and antenna connections are proprietary. If you want to extend your speaker wires, you will have to splice them. Additionally, if you want a replacement antenna or to get a different one, you will have to go through Sony. The unit does have more lag than others in turning on, turning off, initializing a cd, and switching between inputs. I can live with these things. I mostly listen to sports and talk radio, and the stereo is great. For music, the sound is pretty good and has some adjustments for bass and treble and an additional Bass Boost. If you are an audiophile, though, I would look to a much higher end stereo. For basic FM, using Bluetooth, and the occasional cd, I think this is great. It also has NFC, but I don't have any devices to pair with that. The stereo is a total of 50W, but that is more than adequate for my small room. I don't think I would have paid $199 for this, but it offers more features and better performance than other more expensive stereos. It is an absolute steal if you can get it for less than $150.

      Great stereo for a reasonable price

      I bought this to replace an ancient CMT-EX5 that I've had, like, forever. While the EX5 is still working fine, I wanted something with a bit more power. My PC is my only source of entertainment and I run the audio to the stereo, with the speakers on my desk flanking the monitor and amp unit. As this is 'near-field' listening, a lot of volume isn't required and, while the EX5 was fine for music, I had to crank it up for streaming movies and DVDs/BRs. The extra 20W of the SBT100 #50W vs 30W# gives me equal volume at slightly lower volume settings. As for the SBT100, it's very handsomely styled in a nice, understated way. The sound is very crisp and clear with a rich, full presence, helped, no doubt, by the reflex ports on the speakers and which the EX5 lacked. While it lacks the EX5's Surround and DSG modes, it retains bass and treble controls, an absolute must for me. Additionally, this unit has features that I'm unlikely to ever use, like the NFC and Bluetooth streaming; any music on my BT device #phone# is on my PC. Same for playing files off a USB stick. The USB might see use for charging things, though. The speaker wires are reasonably long and, while they still plug into the amp with plastic connectors, the ends going to the speakers are standard bare wire going to spring clips on the speakers, so easy to extend the length if you need to. Far superior to the EX5 in that regard. Headphone jack is on the front, too - was on the back on the EX!. Has a power-saver feature to put unit on stand-by after 15 mins of inactivity #can be turned off# plus standard sleep timer function. The EX5 has a very nice, flat remote that uses watch batteries - I don't remember ever having changed them in 12 years. The SBT has a fat, if still fairly compact, 1/2 cylinder shape that uses AAs. - manual estimates 6 months replacement. One thing to be aware of - there's a fairly bright white LED on the center of the amp, just behind the bottom edge of the silver faceplate. It flashes when you use on the remote. There's a button on the remote marked with a light bulb that turns it on and off should you find it annoying. Overall, I'm quite pleased with this item. Whatever one's opinion of Sony as a company, I've always found the build quality of their equipment top-notch, even on the lower end stuff. .

      I nearly returned this stereo from Sony. The tiny 2 way speakers have absolutely no bass and I am using it hooked to my 55" tv in a small to medium sized living room. The stereo only has treble and bass adjustment, no EQ settings whatsoever. My tv has a 7 band adjustment eq I was able to tweak drastically to help eliminate the speakers from cutting out. I get clipping which is the speakers cutting out. I even have the stereos bass all the way down to lowest setting with bass boost OFF. STEREO TREBLE is +3( of possible +4). I turned tv bass way down nearly all the way just to eliminate clipping/sound cutouts. I decided to purchase a Polk 10" powered subwoofer that had speaker wire level inputs since the Sony stereo has zero outputs. Only input is a single 3.5mm aux input too.Only way to hook up to equipment is cheap as can be 3.5mm single aux cord. Boo! The Polk powered subwoofer, $100 on clearance on Amazon psw10, adds enough bass to have me not return the Sony stereo. I could have just spent another $170 and bought the excellent Denon or Onkyo hi-fi stereo bookshelf stereos for $499 and gotten MUCH better sound with a need for a bigger subwoofer sitting on my floor which is what I DID NOT WANT, A BIG stereo. I don't know how people are giving this Sony stereo good reviews. It has no sound output aside from treble. Midrange is even seriously lacking too and ZERO bass...None. Spend more and get the Denon or Onkyo if you want a great sounding stereo for music and even tv use. This Sony stereo sucks horrendously! Even on sale this stereo is lacking in sound quality drastically.

      I bought this system from one of the Best Buys in the So. Cal. Mojave Desert, on sale. It has turned out to be a very good set up. The sound is amazing for such a small unit. I've yet to try the Bluetooth, HDMI input, or MP3 features, but I do play a lot of CD's on it, I use the AM / FM tuner a considerable amount. However, the most amount of usage for this system, for me, has been as an audio back up for my flat screen TV. I have the "audio in" on my Sony stereo hooked up to the stereo outputs on my TV. The TV audio is improved substantially. The system has amazing bass, however a sub woofer output, and an available (or even better yet,included) subwoofer, would be a huge plus, for this system. The only true bummer for this system, is that the speaker and antennae, both use proprietary connectors, instead of spring connectors or binding posts. There's no way of either hooking up longer wires for the speakers, or connecting an outdoor antennae to the system, for improved reception for the local stations, and to pick up additional broadcast stations, which aren't receivable with the included indoor antennae. Otherwise again, it's a very good system for your money. And Best Buy is an excellent store.

      For the $200 asking price, this music system is an absolute steal for the amount of content that you get. I'm a huge fan of Sony audio products, so I decided to replace my desktop speakers with this system. This system now serves as my 1)output for my computer/laptop, 2)CD player, 3) bluetooth music player, 4)desktop radio, and 5)headphone amplifier. NFC is a godsend for this device, as when I come back from work, I can just tap my phone with the NFC logo on this device and instantly play all of my music wirelessly. It also includes a remote control for added convenience. As for the sound quality, I could not ask for much more, as they are a vast improvement over my previous speakers. Great clarity and detail, and the system also has a built-in Bass Boost feature and equalizer for bass and treble to adjust to your liking. The system has an auto-standby mode, so it sleeps once you disconnect or put your input source to sleep. This also includes a headphone jack, which is handy so you don't have to keep switching plugs in and out of your computer. I use this as an amp for my Sony MDR-1A headphones and they sound much better coming through this system than from my laptop or phone. All I can say is buy this product right now, it has so many uses and makes your music shine for an excellent price!

      I looked at many reviews on several different stereos. After coming across this one it seemed to have a good review and we were looking to switch from a bulking boxy stereo to something a little more slimmer and sleek looking. I love how this looks and the sound is great along with the bass. I like bass but not so much you cant hear the song. This stereo seems to have a great balance of bass. The only thing I wish it had was that you could attach more speakers to it. The slot is preset to have only the two speakers that come with it to plug in. I wanted to plug four speakers into it and it was not capable of doing that properly anyway. My husband end up jerry rigging it so that we could have four speakers hooked up to it. With the extra 2 speakers you can only put the volume up to about 20 till it will shut it off because it wasn't made to do that but it plenty loud even at that volume. With all 4 speakers I usually keep it around 12-14 and that's about what I normally keep it at so overall I am impressed with it.

      This is a nice little system and sounds great for my office. I cannot get it to sync with the Bluetooth and my Windows Phone Nokia 1520. I see on the screen that there is Android and iPhone listed so perhaps they are the only Bluetooth devices that the thing will sync to. Also I have an old iPod with about a gazillion songs that I wanted to use but when I connected via the iPod cord into the usb port it only charges and does not recognize the iPod. Sadly I am forced to buy another cord to plug into back which is used for ear phones and then plug the iPod into the wall for maintaining a charge. So that being said, one must expect a lot of wires placed all around this music system. Because it is small (good thing) it becomes a tad annoying and unorganized and sloppy looking on my credenza. I guess I would recommend this but only if you have iPhone, iPad or Android devices to sync it with.
