Released May, 2008
The Pros:CD player works reliably with all discs, no skipping. Easy to use, no real learning curve involved. Makes the most of OEM speakers, very strong and clear audio output.
The Cons:Display can seem a little too bright at night, gets distracting. A bit boring looking, greys and light blues aren't very impressive. Only 1 set of preamps, limits expansion with after-market amps.

It has a 3-band equalizer with six preset sound curves and a built-in MOSFET amplifier that provides a total of 72 watts of RMS power handling. The CQ-RX100U includes an AM/FM Alphatuner V with 18 FM and 6 AM presets and can display 1 line of CD text. It also has an AUX input on the front panel allowing the user to play audio directly from their MP3 player. The receiver comes with a wireless remote control and a 1 year limited warranty. The CQ-RX100U is a step down from Panasonic's CQ-RX200U since it lacks the expansion module compatibility and CD changer control that comes with the CQ-RX200U.
