I picked up one of these after looking around at others. I was very suprised at how good it was for a lower priced unit ! Dont let the price stop you from buying this one ! This is a super sounding unit, with an extra bass feature that bangs ! I can imagine it with an amp & newer speakers ! I am assured that Clarion puts good quality in all there units, then just goes up in price for more features ! The red & blue illumination is sweet! Good Product, but i do need to see if it stands the test of time ?
