Released January, 2010
The Pros:Wide variety of inputs, including AUX, USB and data CDs of MP3 and AAC files. Interfaces with portable devices and charges them while it plays. Audio output is clear and distinct, very little distortion or noise.
The Cons:Loses all settings ever time it is reset - no way to save them. Configuration instructions need to be read - too complicated to set up without them. Stations with poor signal will flip between analog and digital signals, creating an "echo effect".
