This Mini System is good, it has everything you need. The 2 x 15 watt power output is loud enough to meet most people's needs, and surprisingly the quality isn't that bad, even at very high volumes. The 3 CD Carousel changer enables you to have 3 discs in at one time, though I have never needed this feature, but other people may think otherwise. The Twin cassette deck is average, and does everything that you would expect. One has a recordable function and the other is just plain 'play'. The Digital tuner, I have no problems with, searches for stations well and the RDS is helpful. The Remote control is nothing amazing, I don't personally use it. There are 3 preset electronic equaliser but I never use them, because I think the music should sound like it was made. The 'Power Sound' thing just makes it louder and a bit bassier. I only use this on good sounds to make it louder. There is a Clock, timer and sleep functions are the same as any other thing. It doesn't look great, but you get it for the sound not just the looks. The thing I hate this thing, is that is doesn't read CD-R/RW discs. On several sites I have read that it does, so I thought great. So I bought it, got it home and it didn't. That is the main reason that I bought it. It doesn't even read all the CD-R's I write. Also it is good priced becuase of what you get for your money.
