The radio I got as I showed in the pics has cosmetic imperfections. Also the tuner doesn't stay put all the time, it can shift back a digit. I mainly bought this for the remote and to listen to the AM. At first I thought the AM was messed up because on my digital Sangean radio it would auto fix on for example 670 and I'd get clear audio. But on this radio on the same "channel" it would be scratchy. But then I saw that I could move the tuner around and the sound would get better. The bass is weak compared to my tiny Sangean, which isn't good obviously for what looks like a boombox and is a big radio. The remote was the biggest disappointment of all: it doesn't show a power on indication, it doesn't turn the radio on or off (that's a big con) and no tuner on it. I wanted a radio that I could turn on and off from a distance since often it hurts for me to walk. Really frustrated about that. Also when you play a CD, the radio skips to the last track and...
This is really everything all in one. It plays cds, mp3 cds, has a aux in to use it as speakers for an iPod or mp3 player and AM & FM radio. Also has a tape player for the older generation.
I like the product overall. It has great sound and has a nice looking and compact size considering all that it does. My only issue has been with the remote. I purchased this one because of the remote. I really needed one that had a remote. The remote seems to only work if it has brand new batteries. You have to push down really hard on the buttons and have to be in fairly close range and have to be able to point directly at the front of the radio. I previously had a radio that you could be far away and even point it in the other direction from where the radio sat and it still worked. So this one is pretty frustrating. But if you don't need the remote it's a great player!
