I had a great old JVC bookshelf stereo. It played old cassettes and had a CD tray for 1 CD. It had excellent reception and all the features worked well for years. It was tiny but powerful. Eventually the CD player conked out and the stereo repair shop I went to said the unit was too old and that JVC didn't make a replacement CD player any more for that model so I used it just as a tuner and to play cassettes or listen to the radio. The tape deck worked well and I have lots of cassettes so I was still happy with it for a long time. Then came the advent of the CD. Soon, I could no longer play new tapes. And I couldn't play CDs at all. I decided it was time to get with the program and get a replacement for the old JVC.
I looked for a replacement bookshelf stereo with a CD player that I could afford for over a year. Mostly I found great big scary looking bright silver boom-boxes. Yikes! Then I found some very expensive designer bookshelf stereos that were to be used by people with lots of money who wanted the very best. After a long time, I finally found this Sharp bookshelf stereo and it was just what I wanted. So I bought it.
Truth be known, I have had this stereo for several months and I haven't actually used it yet. I have just been too busy to sit down with the users' manual and learn it. HOWEVER, I had someone set it up for me on my bookcases and IT LOOKS GREAT!! On first look, the stereo seems to be very similar to the old JVC BS stereo. It is the same size and has many other features very much like my old JVC. But the Sharp has a CD player.
I am thrilled to have found a perfect replacement for my old JVC bookshelf stereo. It fits perfectly and really looks classy. Now I just need to use it for what it is meant to be used for and not just a beauty item on my bookshelf system.
