Got about a week ago @ Best Buy to replace my Yamaha A520 which finally died after several decades. I know I've seen reviews by tech-heads which criticize certain aspects of this unit, including price, even though ratings remain pretty highs, but at this price point this guy is getting no complaints from me!
I don't think it's as good as the A520, but that's apples to oranges. I'm a musician, not a techie, and I just needed something to run my playalong jazz cd's (toldya, no techie), and play my cd's & vinyl, without breaking the bank. The FM antenna is minimal, but adequate if you're not out in the sticks.
This unit delivers good, clean sound, all the way up to the ear breaking point, and that's all I can ask of a unit this inexpensive! In addition, it has features I'll not need much, such as the Bluetooth, so I can't speak to those. Being brand new, I also can't speak to longevity. Really happy with this!... Read More
