Our take on the Sony CMT-BX5BT

by Loren Barstow
Sony

The Sony CMT-BX5BT makes it easy to enjoy all your favorite tunes in your office, bedroom, or den. This compact system's built-in Bluetooth capability gives you convenient wireless access to all the music on your Bluetooth-enabled PC, cell phone, or MP3 player. You can also listen to CDs, or kick back and enjoy hours of uninterrupted music from your home-burned MP3 discs. An auxiliary input gives you even more options — just connect a portable music player or plug-and-play satellite radio tuner and listen to it through the 'BX5BT's crisp-sounding speakers.
