completely waterproof, can be sprayed regularly without a problem
resistant to fresh water and salt water damage
reads from the iPod quickly, gives a good interface
setup is fairly easy, entry-level users can handle it with a little effort
outputs a fair amount of power, doesn't need an additional amp for loud volume playback
controls are simple and intuitive
display is very clear in any kind of lighting
source switching is handled by pushing a single button once, don't have to play with menus as you go
