This sony audio shelf system is a nice little addition to my desk. Looks very sleek and sounds pretty good. Nice little dock for my iPod and doubles as a charger at the same time. I wish the clock were present all of the time, for some reason the digital clock feature disappears when the device is on standby mode or turned off, which is my only real gripe. Nice hook up for external devices, I've plugged my turntable into it and it works fine.
