Released March, 2009
The Pros:Radio reception is above average, can pick out stations from a long way away. Reads from the USB port and SD card quickly, plays everything. ESP is very good, rarely if ever skips even burned CDs.
The Cons:No instructions for how to change the display color, although documentation says its possible. No dimmer switch, very bright at night. Ring around the volume knob flashes different colors, very distracting at night.
