Sleek, elegant, easy to use as purchased for my 10 year old son.

If you use the buttns on the system, rather than the remote, it can move backwards

Design is simple and space effective

A numbered remote would speed up track selection. As it is you have to scan through using the arrow keys.

This is a very smart looking and compact machine, very easy to use and has the bonus of being able to play music from your ipod.

The sound is not big and boomy but is plenty big enough, especially when you have neighbours.

Looks great and very easy to use. Ipod function fantastic.

Stopped playing CDs randomly only after using it a few times, said CD empty when it wasn't. Then a few days later played CDs fine again.
