Looks good, excellent sound quality, and easy to hop from one play mode to another.

The remote is really cheap and naff compered to the stereo, and it doesn't work the best either - would have given it 10 outa 10 otherwise.

Does what it says ...


Grand little piece of equipment. Nice and neat, only one wire, but rather longer (wider) than I expected. Good quality sound for price. I've deducted one star because I find it a bit fiddly attaching the iPod/iPhone but otherwise grand.
