Easy to operate and a neat attractive music system. The sound quality is adequate though not great and this is reflected in the relatively low price. Unfortunately the recording facility (CDII), which was the main reason for purchase, kept cutting out during recording and playback, even though the source recordings played perfectly on other systems. I was advised by the seller that my purchase was part of a "bad batch" from the manufacturer and was returned for a full refund. Overall, a disappointing experience which I am not sure I would repeat.
