  • Not too shabby for the price, some flaws though

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Pretty good deal for the price, sound quality is "OK" as long as you don't crank it. Makes a nice little player for your workbench/desk/cubicle/kitchen etc. It actually looks pretty nice, the woodgrain while being fake is very convincing.

    Cons:

    - Volume defaults to maximum when turned on
    - No volume buttons on unit only on remote
    - No shuffle function
    - Speakers distort at high volume
    - No power adapter, just USB cable with jack
    - Not supposed to play while charging
    - No radio function

    OtherThoughts:

    Its not a bad little unit but I think there is room for improvement. Would benefit from having a radio feature especially when the IC's for these are so cheap.
    Haven't had a chance to fully drain the battery yet but I'll post a comment if/when I do.

    Bottomline:

    Neat little unit that's fairly inexpensive (at least in a Canadian Market) and is fairly flexible in that it reads from SD or USB. I may gut the device and use the circuitry to make a nicer mini stereo.
