Sound is great, nice and sleek looking, not too confusing front. separate CD drawers.
Timer for alarm somewhat difficult, (doesn\'t reset itself for timer function to work after going into stand-by.
The Sharp XL-HP500 system was a replacement for a SONY that was sorely lacking in quality sound from the CD player. (It had a prohibitive hiss at lower volumes). The SHARP system cost $20 less with much better sound in the exact same configuration as the SONY. The only fault I could find with this is the daily alarm setting procedure to set after the unit goes into standby mode. (But with the rich sound I can live with the extra button pushing).
