"I am very pleased with it's capabilities."5.0 starson by MEU
Pros: Offers plenty of ways to hear all kinds of music. Seems to live up to it's specs.
Cons: Wish it had more presets and would stream artist and song title for radio stations.
Summary: I can't compare the sound with the prior year model, but think the sound is good. I plan to hook it up to my AV Receiver next and that should be great sound. It's not portable, but as long as there is an electric outlet it's fairly portable and boots itself up quickly. Glad I bought it.
