Product Review: This product has three strengths. First, it sounds great (even at low volumes). secondly, it combines everything you do into one box (watch DVDs, listend to CDs, FM/AM radio, etc. -- replaced 3 ft. of stacked audio/visual gear with one small box with just a few cables to the speakers). Finally, it stores your CD collection easily (looking up all the info about the CD in an on-board database that is updated quarterly by Bose).

The uMusic system is pretty good at learning what type of music you do/don't like and choosing songs you'd like. But, it doesn't have a way to not play Christmas songs in the summer. Rather, it is built around what mood you are in; you have 9 "channels" for the different moods (or for teenager music vs adult music). You can select specific genre's (e.g., classical), artists, etc. and listen only to that type.

Overall, it's is a great high-end system.
