Rated 5 out of 5 by palupear Great Bookshelf System
Have had the Sony CMT-SBT100 micro music system for a couple weeks now and am very pleased with its functions and performance. Handsomely designed with a simple set up it provides good, clear sound and easy operations through a handy remote or with its low profile push button interface on the receiver. I'm using it in my loft office and it pulls in my favorite FM radio stations better than my $450 receiver downstairs. iPhone set up is a snap for iTunes and it can also connect via Bluetooth or direct line-in wire to my laptop for clean streaming of internet radio options. Bass boost gives good punch, but I tweak the separate bass and treble digital controls for even crisper high end clarity. The single CD player built into the amp/receiver works fine for playing old favorites, but popping in one CD at a time is a bit of a hassle, but a reasonable compromise for a very compact system. The wood enclosed speakers are warm and solid and don't start distorting sound until you are way up on volume control. An inexpensive, full-function sound system that sounds and performs way better than most micros I have heard. Another well-made product from Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JGWP Simply the very best!
What a system. Have Sony 5 disc CD changer and Sony A/V amp but for my bedroom this system is tops for its size. The sound from the two speakers is equal to if not better than my much higher priced Sony A/V equipment. Glad I read all the reviews, and purchased this. Easy to understand instructions, well solid build, great remote, and very clear view of messages from across a not so well lit at times room. After buying and returning a much more expensive music system this is the only way to go. Enjoy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThinkAgain Great Value for Your Money
For the $200 asking price, this music system is an absolute steal for the amount of content that you get. I'm a huge fan of Sony audio products, so I decided to replace my desktop speakers with this system. This system now serves as my 1)output for my computer/laptop, 2)CD player, 3) bluetooth music player, 4)desktop radio, and 5)headphone amplifier.
NFC is a godsend for this device, as when I come back from work, I can just tap my phone with the NFC logo on this device and instantly play all of my music wirelessly. It also includes a remote control for added convenience. As for the sound quality, I could not ask for much more, as they are a vast improvement over my previous speakers. Great clarity and detail, and the system also has a built-in Bass Boost feature and equalizer for bass and treble to adjust to your liking. The system has an auto-standby mode, so it sleeps once you disconnect or put your input source to sleep. This also includes a headphone jack, which is handy so you don't have to keep switching plugs in and out of your computer. I use this as an amp for my Sony MDR-1A headphones and they sound much better coming through this system than from my laptop or phone.
All I can say is buy this product right now, it has so many uses and makes your music shine for an excellent price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ETMK Great purchase
We wanted a no frills, clean-looking stereo for our one bedroom house and this was the perfect one. The two speakers really sound awesome, the price was great, we needed an audio in jack for our Sirius and record player and we wanted it to be a quality purchase. What little stereo options are out there today leave much to be desired as they all seem to be somewhat gaudy, but not this one. Highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Netwrok Not what I was expecting from Sony
Sound is great. Can connect Windows phone via blue tooth.
Sadly Sony does not have any driver to help windows PCs.
I had to trick the PC into grabbing a generic driver for serial bus communication but Windows does not allow output to the audio device. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on a Lenovo laptop
I also tried an external ASUS mini blue tooth adapter.
Sadly there is only one audio port and now I understand why it was in the bargain bin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KBadOne XPERIA Z1 ultimate companion!
I recently purchased XPERIA Z1 along with this stereo system. The system has a clean modern design (expected from Sony) and nice features such as NFC, DSEE and built in S-Master amplifier. I mostly use the system for Bluetooth streaming, pairing is easy and fast. Tested the Bluetooth function with XPERIA Z1, all you need is turn on clearaudio + and you are set for an amazing audio experience! There is no loss in sound quality over Bluetooth thanks to the Apt-X codec support with BT 3.0
One downside is the USB port, it take a long time to scan the content on the flash drive or Walkman, and doesn’t play FLAC audio files through USB port.
