As usual with Amazon's excellent customer service, the unit arrived promptly. Once un-boxed it looked great. CDs and tracks from a USB (the main reason I bought this particular unit) play brilliantly, with the volume between 20 - 25 being my personal favourite. The unit is certainly eye-catching and by now you may be wondering Why only 3 stars?
Well, the FM radio reception is appalling. This unit replaced a 20 year old Sony radio cassette CD unit which picked up all local and national FM stations with ease. However, despite several hours of twiddling with the awful FM wire aerial, and even moving the unit, the FM reception is still very poor, with most stations not recognised.
I do not see this as a problem with Amazon, but if Panasonic cannot resolve it, then I shall sadly and reluctantly have to return the unit. Shame, as the CD and USB sound is excellent.
