I use this Yamaha MCR-332 for over a year now (Christmas 2012)
I tried other compact systems, such as Panasonic SC-PMX5EG-S, or Pioneer X-CM31 but I found no equivalent in performance / design.
I love all the finish (Piano Black) and the design, performance (frequency response 20 Hz - 20 kHz), the high-end components (twitter up to 38 kHz), but also the ergonomics (remote well thought ...).
I also like the sub output for connecting a subwoofer.
The price / quality ratio is, I think, excellent.
Now with a year back, I would do this choice because it suits me perfectly, I use it every day. I also strongly recommend you to buy this chain!
I added the technical information provided by the doc 'on the dedicated page of AF.
