Good, straightforward radio


Overall a good product. I bought it mainly because I wanted an auxiliary input. The USB is great as well, and allows my phone to automatically start playing its Pandora.About me... Casual listener, Avid listener

Auxiilary input, and USB input, button lay out pretty straightforward

sound quality not great (may just be attributed to my speakers), some of the sound adjustments are a bit complicated

Very pleased...


Installation was a breeze. This unit is great! The price was right and it does many of the tricks the more expensive brands can do! Very user friendly!

Really good stereo for the price


So far I have no issues with this stereo. It is user friendly and easy to install. The iPod control via USB is a nice feature on a 'cheap' stereo.

easy to use

1 in 10 starts, the sound is muted

More than I expected for the price


I didn't intend to upgrade my car stereo, but the one that came stock ended up shorting out. This product may be considered basic, but it does everything I need. AM/FM, CD, regular 1/8" aux, plus full iOS compatibility via USB. It also has Pandora...

USB/iOS device compatibility

Has more radio presets, but not as simple to access
