Dedicated woofer opens up low end response considerably - very beneficial for Hip Hop and dance music playback

Auxiliary output provides quick integration of iPods and other Mp3 players - USB input offers direct streaming from laptop computers

1 agrees

Multiple connectivity options are a major bonus - audio receiver outputting enables full home theater surround sound support

Cassette playback is a great feature for older users - very few modern units continue to incorporate tape decks

Overall sound quality is disappointing - middle and high ranges come across as muffled and flat while low end is harsh and noisy

1 agrees

Feels somewhat overpriced for the feature set/ output quality - Yamaha and Sony offer much more powerful units in the same price range

1 agrees

Control layout is confusing and seemingly unnecessary - multiple screen areas split up information pertaining to one input type
