This is a woderful music system. I bought it three years ago and what has impressed me most about it is the quality of music it gives. Another impressive thing about it is that you can sample other CDs while it is playing. I bought another complicated brand (Not Sony), three times more expensive than this sony model, and with all the complicated speaker system and all that one can imagine as the latest technology. But I was so disappointed. To sample other CDs the system will stop playing, and with all the speakers it has, the music quality reaches nowhere closer to that of Sony NX3AV. If you want a high quality music system with at a better price, buy this sony music system. You will not regret. You will have gotten something more than worth your money. Radio tuner is so good, especially in tracking the stations to be tuned. High Selectivity and sensitivity for the radio. The cassette part has got very good music clearity.
