One-knob design is logical and easy to use - allows users to control volume and menu settings within a single housing for convenience

Excellent overall audio quality at the price point - CD, radio and auxiliary input sound is clear, balanced and well-definied throughout frequency range

1 agrees

Text display is very easy to read - displays track and time information in a clear, bold, manner to ensure instant readability '

1 agrees

Stock audio handling is more than suitable - users with pre-amp/subwoofer units are not likely to exceed the 25% level for all playback needs

1 agrees

FM radio tuning is reliable and consistent - quickly hones in on local stations to provide high-quality playback free of intermittence

Cons

AM radio reception is relatively weak - local stations are seemingly prone to intermittence with a substantial decrease in quality as compared to FM tuning

1 agrees

Auxiliary input volume level is surprisingly low - many users report having to excess the 25% level to hear any audio whatsoever

1 agrees

Blue LED status light may cause distraction/annoyance amongst certain users - component is fairly bright compared to similar in-dash units from Sony and JVC
