Summary: I bought this as a supplemental receiver. I ordered on July 23, 2014 and got it a few days later. Then in a few days I set it up and began using it. we only use it on the weekends. It is now the 30th of August and it is dead. Too late for an Amazon return. So I tried the Pyle website. Well all I can say is that i am not hopeful for any real service as the site seems to be anything but service.
Summary: I really wanted this to work because of the options and price. I returned the first one becuase the display was showing wrong digits when tuning in the FM radio channels. the second one would not remember the FM channels... Not worth the hassle. I am returning it for a refund. If you do purchase one, save all the packaging so you can send it back.

Summary: I purchased this despite the reviews but should have listened. It worked for about 15 minutes before completely shorting out. I'm returning it (and have nothing but good things to say about Amazon's customer service as they have already issued a refund and are having UPS coming pick it up.
Summary: I read the other reviews before I purchased this item. I have no complaints at all with the unit I recieved. I admit, the speaker connections on the back feel a little "cheap," but they worked okay. I like the fact that it lets you select between either A or B speakers, or both A AND B speakers. It sounds good, works great, and easily powered the four speakers (2 sets of 2 each) that I installed. It liked it so well I just ordered another one for a friend.
Summary: Has good sound, I installed it in the house, however, it drives the outdoor speakers I installed on the patio for listening to in the Hot tub, and while BBQing. My only issue is the docking station and the auxialliary cord worked for the first use only, after that, they died. So, as long as I only want to listen to FM radio, which is my main use, it works fine for the money.
Summary: So far this is a great receiver for the money. The FM reception is not great but I bought it to play the iPod through. It sounds great and with the on line streaming music you have endless entertainment. I paired it with 4 Pyle weather proof speakers rated at 400 watts each. I am pleased with this purchase.
