Comparing...


Well

I had to go return the previous stereo I had bought

What a piece of crap that turned out to be!

I had originally bought the Panasonic NITRIX 5 CD Mini System w/ Cassette Player, SC-AK630. The power was great, but was actually far too powerful for the speakers the company made to go with the system. The CD tray was also a 5 disc but a single load which meant you had to load each one individually and then close it, change tracks, open it again, and load another CD. Overall it was a pain in the butt and the CD changer was very loud because it makes a constant clicking sound and takes nearly a minute to change each CD. The layout on the remote control was absolutely horrible as well, nothing like most companies do the layout and therefore very hard to get use to. The preset equalizers are pretty decent but there are not too many of them to choose from.

I ended up buying the Sony 3-CD 400-Watt Mini Hi-Fi System, MHC-GX450. This system is absolutely wonderful. The sub is a little weaker then I would have liked but the subs in the speakers more than make up for the lesser powered regular sub. The functions are much better then the slightly more expensive Panasonic. The preset equalizers offer more in options and when you factor in the video console mixing feature it makes it even better. The CD player is a turntable design which changes over quickly and is easy to load. It is considerably quieter then the Panasonic’s CD changer and easily three times faster. It seems that the Sony also reads and loads CD’s faster after switching them over as well.

Not only is the Sony slightly cheaper but it is considerably better as well. I have CD players in different rooms, however with the power that this player offers; I no longer have to use any of my other players even when I am downstairs.

I agree...

I have bought a few things from them that were crappy but that is because it was their low end stuff...

Most of what they produce is wonderful though...

WalMart had the wrong unit on display the first day I went and thus I passed it up...

I am glad I went back and got this one this time...

Loyalty, it's tough to go wrong with Sony. They make good stuff across the board.

If you are strong and push through the pain and the fear, you often find that happiness is waiting for you on the other side.
