I have this product for two years and a half. The sound is very good and loud enough for an apartment. One big disadvantage is the fact that you can not change tha redio from the remote control; you have to use the tunning button from the device. My Philips worked perfectly until one month ago when it failed. When you start the device, you can here a buzzing noise on top of the normal sound/music. Also it doesn't recognise the USB sticks and CDs. Nothing change in the environment where the device is working so I'm guessing it's a programmed fault. It also occurred a couple of weeks after the guaranty expired.I am sure that my next sound system will no longer be a philips.
