Although the unit is refurbished, it works very well and looks fine. Had a little snafu when it arrived; the front panel fell off in my hands. We were glad it came when it did because it was just in time for the housewarming. So I glued the front panel on and it's not been a problem since.
I bought this receiver for music outside by the pool. Its kept in the garage, it has plenty of power and love the idea that I can pack a 8gb USB thumb drive with hours of music, its like having my own satellite radio. The USB option is really what sold me on this unit. In addition it will play standard cd's and MP3 cd's. The only drawback is it has a cooling fan built in to it that is a little loud. But for my use it's really not an issue with it being outside. But I think if you would use this indoors in a quiet environment it could become annoying.
First during initial operation of playback and recording, the recording channel stopped working. I had to remove covers and examine the device to determine the cause and correct. The cause was the tiny belt driven by the motor had slipped off the drive wheel. I feel this will continue to be a problem, therefore I am searching for a supply source. Second, when you are recording you can't listen to the source. I'll have to resolve this issue. The unit is compact and attractive.
