Please note that this unit is ONLY 5 watts per channel. BUT it is perfect for a bedroom or den. The sound is pristeen. Very clean and pure. No hiss, rumble or mechanical noise. It is small enough to fit probably almost any book shelf. If I had listened to this in a store I probably would have not bought it because you would not have been able to hear how GOOD it sounds with all the store background noise. I guess I was lucky in the unit I got because everything works.
I use it in my bedroom at night and the great thing is that it has a sleep timer and you can have it play for 90 minutes and then reduce it in 15 minute increments before it shuts itself off. All this controlled from the remote control. As for the remote it's a little weird. It's pointed at both ends, shaped like a kyack. The remote is powered by a button cell battery. The buttons on the remote are micro switches similar to the kind on a microwave oven. The conrol buttons are just slightly raised and there is no click or much feel as to whether they have been activated. The same for the controls on the base unit except that they aren't even raised. The remote control has almost every settings you will need eg: volume, cd, fm, am, auxillary, I-pod, repeat, schuffle, sleep, skip, mute, stop. etc.
I like the individle volume controls for bass and treble . They go from -4 to +4 so that's a total of 8 settings for both. I have mine set to -4 for the treble and +4 for the bass. The volume goes from 0 to 40. I have mine set at 14 for when I get to bed at night. It can get plenty loud enough to fill a living room if necessary. When you have the CD set to schuffle ( Random ) play you can barely hear the mecahnical whirling sound of it changing songs. This is a VERY quiet operating unit.
They also supply a 12" mini plug cable so that you can attache like my Snasa MP3 player to the auxillary outlet in the back. Now if only they would make one just like this with about 50 watts per channel I would buy another.
For $54 this is a steal. Other web sites have it up to as much as $100.
I am more than pleased with this unit as I hope you will too. ENJOY.
P.S. I have other high end audio Hi Fi equipment so I have have a solid base on which to compare the quality of this unit.
