Initial setup was easy - plug in, connect antennae (1 AM, 1 FM) and turn on.
Radio reception is fine, equivalent to the boombox it was replacing. The AM antenna is cumbersome.
Design: The button functions are hard to see unless looking at them head on. This is because the buttons are convex plastic over the writing which is on a reflective surface - when you look at an angle, the text bends. After you memorize the location of the buttons this isn't really an issue, but it's a bad design. I like the up-front USB and 1/8" audio inputs, which make it convenient to tie in an external audio source.
Sound quality: Average. Good mid-range and upper bass, but you need to place near a back wall to get any bass lower than ~100hz. Vocals are clear, and talk radio or audio books are especially nice (not boomy). A built-in multi-function EQ lets you change the configuration. As for treble there is a noticable hiss, even when volume was turned down to zero and/or when CD was paused. The hiss is very apparent within 5 feet of unit, with your ears directly in front of speakers. Across the room (12') the hiss is not very noticeable, and with CD audio playing hiss is well in the background. For the price of this item I would have expected better. His also occurs with USB / MP3 player selection. The ability to place speakers where you need them (with plenty of speaker cable) is nice.

Several years ago, I purchased a similar compact JVC unit for myself. It's worked well, so when I wanted a radio/CD player for my dad for Christmas, I ordered this one. Read morePublished on January 12, 2009 by Consumer in Alexandria
