I was looking for something with a rich feature set that was not touch screen. Touchscreen units seem slow to me, and they tend to look dated in just a few years of newer models coming out. My phone IS the touch screen and the music maker -- what I need are interface options. This thing is awesome. Dual usb, bluetooth and aux in? It does it all, and the controls are lightning fast once you get used to them. I was most interested in the sound quality from usb input, and it is amazing.
