The volume has to be turned up to drown out the CD player noise. No balance control for speakers is an issue. The are scrape marks on the top front edge of the player. It works well, but not very user friendly. It will take some time and patience to follow directions to set up FM stations (which can ONLY be done with the remote). Make sure you have a triple A battery ready. AAA battery not included for remote. Crank the tunes!
I got this stereo for my husband a couple of years ago and still uses it every day, he keeps it on his nightstand. For a micro system this stereo has plenty of power and the sound quality is really good.
These mini stereos are so great I have now purchased 3 of them to use in bedrooms. The small size (especially shallow depth) make them perfect for sitting on a bookcase shelf. The sounds is excellent for such small speakers. Because of the low price the controls are limited, e.g., you cannot adjust bass and treble but you pick from the 5 preset settings. You can't beat the price for such a good looking good sounding system. Two of the three were in 100% perfect new condition. One arrived with a slight ding on the corner of a speaker but the other pieces were perfect and it was obvious the cords had never been unwrapped.
