All in one media center.
I have one since last December, it was my Christmas gift . The sound is good for my tastes and the system all in one is perfect for me. The system works with all my IOS devices like the iPhone4, iPod touch 4g, iPod nano 5g, and 6g and my iPad too(aux, cable).and my iPod Classic 160GB.
I put 5 stars why is the best system for my music devices, including the usb flash memory, The videos of all my IOS devices stream very well in the 9"LCD.display. Congratulations Sony for this product.

Nice all in one unit
Good sound quality but not the power you'd expect from 130 watts.The clarity is superb at any volume.
If you're looking for earth shattering bass etc then don't buy this. It serves my musical taste but it might not be for those wanting to rock the room.
Remote has way too many buttons and the unit has no battery backup for clock. Come on Sony...what's with that for this price?
It's reproduction of audio mp3's is the best I've heard and it's fairly quick reading , cds, sd card and usb device data. I don't own an ipod but I'm confident it would work great with one.
It has a constant running noise that if used in a quiet space like in bedroom beside the bed might be noticeable. It's not loud and while music is playing at a low to high volume is near impossible to detect. If the volume is very low it can be heard. My hearing isn't all that great so be forewarned this might not be suitable for those seeking a noiseless unit in quiet area. eg sort of sounds like a laptops fan. I will be contacting Sony to see if this is a normal operating noise.
I picked this up new for less than half price and it's definitely worth that but definitely not the list price.
The video /photo quality is excellent.
No manual EQ or tone adjustment but the presets and other options give enough settings to satisfy most listeners.
The lcd can be turned off/dimmed , the front lighted control panel buttons can also be dimmed and the lighted Sony logo can be turned off. This thing is loaded with setting options so thumbs up to Sony for that.
The build quality is very good with the outer shell made of a decent quality plastic making it light enough to be wall mounted which it is designed for and it looks great on a table top .
I gave only 3 stars for value based on it's list price but for what I paid it would be 5 stars.
Go into a Sony store etc to try one out. Some online dealers, like the one I bought from, offer satisfaction guaranteed and free return shipping which I highly recommend.

Nice all in one unit
The best unit I've heard for mp3 reproduction.
Not quite the power I expected for claiming 130watts rms but superb clarity and more than enough power for most small to large size rooms within a house. Reads dvds,cds, usb and sd fairly quickly. I don't own an ipod but I'm confident it would work fine with it.
Tons of useful features.Sony pretty much covered them all with this baby.
I bought mine new in Canada for less than half retail. I would never pay full price for this but it's definitely worth what I paid.
I'm disappointed that it has no power backup for clock/date and the remote is too cluttered with buttons .Come on Sony what's with that?
If you're looking for massive volume and earth shattering bass don't buy this. It has great sound for it's size and for my taste in music it's perfect.
Build quality is very good with a quality plastic exterior and since it's designed for wall mounting it's low weight is ideal.
The lcd reproduces excellent video/photo quality and the surround sound settings are impressive. These settings can be used to enhance music.
No manual equalizer...it's all presets...but I knew that before buying it. though I wish it had manual . Nevertheless it has enough presets and sound adjustments to make most owners content.
Overall another fine Sony product well worth owning.
