Released January, 2008
The Pros:Sound output is clear and fairly loud. Preamps are surprisingly clear and well-defined, sound great. Radio reception is very good, no static even with weaker signals.
The Cons:Navigation of USB drives is awkward and difficult to work with. Limits the number of files you're allowed to have on your USB drive.
Panasonic's CQ-C5305U is a stylish CD receiver. It connects and controls iPods by adding an optional iPod® adapter. The bright 2-line display on the fold-down face puts artist and title information in easy view, and follows the same hierarchical folder structure as in the iPod, up to 128 characters.
