Overall great unit until cds jammed reading "mechanical error" & "disc 2 eject" but with no response Quick Fix: Unplug unit - take off left side panel (6 screws) Blow out dust from inside unit (why not while its open?) Plug in and switch to CD. While screen reads "initializing" reach in and tap the clear plastic covering the drive mechanism while pressing the eject button on the identified problem disc. disc will come out with enough "hard" tapping. Repeat as necessary for the balance of... (read more)

I am sorry to say but sony no longer stands for quality for it was known for. Although I bought my hi-fi system a while ago, it developed mechanical error twice in less than 12 months so from the comments I have been reading so far, it seems sony must have been aware of the mechanical fault associated with this particlar hi-fi system. Otherwise, why are the majority of the people complaining of the same problems? When I bought, it was not cheap because I had the notion I was buying... (read more)

BEWARE Sony CMT-EH15 Micro Hi Fi System: I bought TWO of them. CD player stopped working after two months in BOTH units. This is the SECOND sony CMT-EH15 I have had. I returned the first and was given a replacement. Same problem again and a wasted money. Feel totally ripped off !!! The only reason I buy a brand name like Sony is because I assume i can rely on the quality of their product. This product has completely underminded my confidence in the Sony brand because it happened with TWO... (read more)

My CD's get stuck as well. All I do is push the open CD button on the Sony CMT-HP7 and bang on the top till it pops down and the CD exchanger opens. Not a great solution, but I'm able to get my CD's out at least. I loved the random play feature of this unit, but since the CD's keep getting stuck I can't use it any more. Anyone have any solutions for fixing the problem or is it time to trash it? (read more)

Excellent sound quality and reliability as always from Sony. The bass is outstanding considering it is coming from such a small yet sleek hi-fi. Overall i love it and i will keep it for as long as it works as i think it is an excellent piece of engineering. (read more)

I bought this sound system in Switzerland. It does have a nice sound. With high frequency tweeter and quite nice medium/low speakers. I thought it had a nice amplifier, but it now randomly turns down when I listen to the radio or to any auxiliary. Concerning the CD tray, I do have the same problem as most people do. They never got stuck in the tray, but I do get that whirring noise that was mentioned in one of the posts, it gets to the point where it is louder than the music itself, and then... (read more)

Best thing would be to trash it before worse happens and I have to crack it open to get the discs out. (read more)

Lots of features. It was apparently a "return" unit. I got it cheap from Sears for $80 .00 last year. Far better than any computer speakers for listening to audio sounds. Nice AM-FM tuner. The CD player has never stuck for me like some people complain about, but I don't use it much.
The Sony CMT-HP7 has no EQ or tone controls (like most Asian stereos these days, sigh)! It turns itself automatically to an annoying DEMO mode when it is OFF. It does this randomly and presents an annoying... (read more)

I like the Sony CMT-HP7 micro system's sound, as well as the fact that it plays MP3's.
There was a mechanical error that occurred, and as with other reviews stated, my CD's were stuck in the system, but it was still under warranty, and the mechanic said that it was just a broken spring, so it was easily fixed. (read more)

I liked the Sony CMT-HP7 every day that it worked properly, (good sounding unit), until the cd mech broke. After reading other reviews it seems I'm not the only one with this problem. A bit disappointed. (read more)

Loved the Sony CMT HP7 until it held our 5 favourite cds hostage after just 14 months. CD system is broken, just two months after warranty expired. Guess we should have bought the extended warranty. Not impressed with quality. (read more)

Sony has been succesful in presenting a solid micro system in the Sony CMT-HP7. It has unusually good solid bass from such a small system. Most in this size can be raspy and tinny, but the HP-7 delivers a bass that really hits you clean.
I like it's looks and the display is easy to read from any angle. Also good to see the addition of a cooling fan in the back to help keep the unit's electronic's from overheating.
This is a well engineered unit with great sound at an extremely good price. (read more)
