I bought this cd player for my husband for Christmas. The price was reasonable. It is much less bulky than most cd player stereos and the linear appearance is appealing. The cd's go in a row across the center of the player and are covered with 3 seperate round plastic pieces that can light up different colors as the music is playing. You can change the color setting to be all one color or to alternate between multiple colors. My husband refers to it as a Nip/Tuck cd player as a similar one was on the show. The sound is good for the price, although definitely not the quality of an expensive stereo system. It comes with two speakers which do not attach to the main system. The narrowness of it allows us to put it on the top shelf our computer desk and hook it up to our computer which works out very well. Overall we are happy with the product.
