Great - for the price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pyramid 1704MP AM/FM Receiver MP3 Playback with USB/SD/AUXIN (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This radio has good FM radio reception. Even with no antenna it picks up more than my home stereo does with an antenna. The SD card reader plays MP3's great from my 8GB Micro SD with adapter. I've tried VBR, and Set Bit rate MP3's of different types, and everything has played fine.
The unit is light weight and generally seems cheap.
It has stereo speaker outputs, and both speakers share a common wire with ground. The built in wires are tiny gauge and cheap. This unit doesn't do 200 watts of anything. If you tried to run 200 watts of power through this it would definitely melt your wires... debate-ably before you could blow the amp.
The USB port did not recognize the micro SD to USB adapter I had.
I am using this as a lightweight FM radio / MP3 player in my house, and powering it with a deep cycle battery hooked to a solar panel. It works great so far, and sounds better than I expected.
I like that there is a 1/8" front line in on it so you can connect your phone or other mp3 player though it.
If you're expecting a high quality rugged stereo that will power anything larger than a pair of 6x9 speakers... You will be very disappointed. If you are looking for an inexpensive light weight unit to play FM / MP3 through a pair of small speakers... Well this is a bargain.
