Good player at good price

 

I use a Patriot X-mini 4gb usb drive with this and together they look and work wonderfully. Read times are about 1 - 2 seconds with 5 folders dividing my songs. The small size of my USB stick and its flashing light go great with this cd player.

Looks great, has front USB slot, pumps out 2 more watts per speaker than other players in this range

Cannot search songs, cannot move back a song if it is set on shuffle

Great

 

I got this mainly to download mp3's to my usb stick and play my music in my car it works great

Other then hooking it up it does take sometime to read the mp3's if there are folders on the usb stick

Pretty good - Great Price

 

This is a great unit; looks great, works great. The motorized display is a great feature. Would just prefer more sound intensity and adjustment for a $250 unit.

Very good control setup; good, visible display. Jog dial for menu and sound control is very intuitive and effective. enables easy controls while driving. Great features; USB works very well

Lack of Loud setting and 7-band equalizer definitely hold this unit back. Sound quality is very good, but intensity and teakability are lacking. That's the only area i would mark it down

Close to Great

 

Bought this to replace a broken CDX GT300. Honestly, the 300 was an equal/superior/less expensive unit: display design was perfect and audio/electronics were as good as this. But the USB port is irresistible. 800+ songs at high bit rates on 4G stick....

BBE (USB, CD only) & DSO - Sound Processors that really do improve mp3/wma. Ample power, even for a Jeep. Super flexible sound outputs and EQ. Slightly shrill (a real virtue in an auto, esp a Jeep)

Dim Display, somewhat grainy, clock is microscopic when unit is on, useless. Usb port works best if you limit # of subdirs, it always reads the entire stick each time (but starts at last play point at least)

Excellent Piece of equipment

 

Very easy to setup, it slid right into my Mazda MX3 like butter, no exterior modifications what so ever.
