Boss 740UA


$154.00 Released May, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Basic controls are easy to work with as you drive. Looks great on the dash, good contrast in the colors. Plenty of power to the speakers, makes the most of your OEM speakers and can drive after-market speakers without a separate amp.

The Cons:Owner's manual isn't very detailed, have to play around with it to figure it out. Collects fingerprints quickly, have to clean it often. Digital/audio converter could be better, compressed files sound significantly bad compared to CDs or radio.
