output is clear an distortion free, sounds great even on OEM speakers

built-in amplifier outputs a relatively strong signal - may not need an additional amp

switching between HD stations is tricky, doesn't get the best reception

manual contains a number of errors

over-processes HD radio, washing out the details a little

no buttons for radio station presets, need to do a complex move with buttons and holding down the knob while turning it

Multiple layers of menu option for most functions; radio presets, equalizer, HD Hold. Not user friendly AT ALL. HD radio goes in and out of digital/ analog, does not sound like cd. AM HD sounds over processed and is too bright. Analog signal sounds much better.
