Cons

Radio receiver is very unreliable - seems to toggle between intermittent signals and constant static

1 agrees

Volume outputting is fairly quiet - muffling and distortion may occur at maximal levels, making the unit unsuitable for social gathering and larger room settings

1 agrees

Lacks external EQ adjustment - puts unit at a disadvantage as compared to similar models from Jensen and Altec Lansing
