distortion at first, but..., 4 Dec. 2010
I've looked at reviews here, there & everywhere before deciding on this unit. With only one bad review for distorted sound - and that at max volume - I thought I could put up with that. However, the distortion was so bad at anything but low volume (when listening to speech), that I was all set to return it for refund. (I knew it was a design fault, not just one faulty unit.) As it had taken me two intensive weeks of research to get to this point, I was loathe to start all over again. So I had another fiddle with it, and took the battery cover off. Suprise & delight - 95% improvement in sound quality. The battery door was vibrating with the sound! As I only intend using it on mains, and as it will stay close to the wall, opeating without the battery cover is no problem. (I don't know whether you would get this problem with the two ton of batteries inserted, but I suggest you buy it & try it. Amazon are always good with returns.)I'm now a happy chappy.
