The music consists of three parts a streamlined pedestal, a grid and a metal tube which connects the grid and the pedestal. The Yamaha ISX-803 audio system is very versatile as it is compatible with a number of sources. It has a CD player and FM tuner which has five presets. The CD player supports MP3 and WMA files.
