Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Great sound quality and bass. I like rock music and it's hard to find something that does bass on this level that doesn't distort my music. Only pet peeves is the auto-dj effect(random function). It cuts off the end and beginnings of songs which is annoying, you can turn it off but it's not the default setting. Also I wish it was more portable. All in all a great system though.

Asked by: Antonio33

Do I need an antenna to play my music  that I have on my phone through Bluetooth?

Asked by: Williamsbrett
The Bluetooth® on the LG 1200W CD Mini HiFi Shelf System, Model # CM8430 is a wireless technology that has a range of about 33 feet (10 m) and works much the same way that your WiFi does and does not need an antenna, you just need to be in the proper range to stream music from your Bluetooth capable phone after you have paired your phone to the CM8430...^IFV
