So if you want to talk music, then 5 stars. Period. If you want to talk item concept, then 5 stars. Period. The three stars come due to the way it's been put together.

I have ordered another to replace it and so it will be interesting to see if this happens again. I don't know if this is a factor, but my bulb was positioned upside down so that the heat it generated would rise up to the bayonet end, as opposed to one mounted the other way where the heat would dissipate into the atmosphere.

This may be localised to this one particular reader, as others appear to be having continuing success with theirs. I should point out that the reader has not be rough handled or mistreated.
