An excellent niche device blending old-school with newer tech.
I bought this because I love all the features of this stereo, and the features all check out perfectly. I love being able to play MP3 mix CD's in my living room now, and even though I'm not much of a cassette guy, it's nice to have the option. My favorite feature is being able to hook up my vinyl player and record from old records straight onto a thumb drive. Worked great! (though a helpful tip if you're an audiophile is to be prepared to edit the recorded files on a PC, mostly to split up the tracks, but also to adjust the audio levels to sound good, otherwise all your tracks will sound pretty quiet). My one small complaint would have to be that the display is a little too old-fashioned, displaying very little text in blocky, slow-scrolling letters. For playing MP3 discs or USB drives, it would be nice if there was a way to scroll through the folders like the CD player in my car can, instead of just having to hit the >>| button repeatedly. Granted, I'm sure the product would've cost a LOT more if it had a more 'modern' display, so I'm not complaining too much. Overall very satisfied!Read full review
