Summary: I broke the CD changer in this stereo. I use this as my home speaker system. I have listened to the tuner and it is crystal clear. The custom equalizer helps so you can have this as loud or soft as you want it. The USB connection is a great addition to the player so you can listen to your favorite songs. I love the sound of the speakers as you can hear every little sound even the background sounds in any show, MP3 or movie.
RCA should be ashamed to offer such a shabby product.

Summary: Bought this for my house in Cabo San Lucas. I've had the same problems that everyone else has had. CD changer won't play CDs or even let me pull the CDs out - plus now it gets stuck in an endless attempt to change and access the CDs but won't play any - I have to unplug and start it up again carefully selecting only the FM or AUX so it won't start up again.
Summary: The only qualities this stereo has going for it are its look and sound. Otherwise, it has absolutely no function. The CD tray is ridiculous; it scratches my CDs, and gets stuck in such away that the only way to remove the CDs are with a bent hanger, and won't do ANYTHING. Also, the reception is terribly.
The unit locks onto a signal, with in 5 minutes it looses the signal, if I reset the station it comes back for 5 minutes

Summary: The unit sounds good. But shouldn't new radios come with HD reception? Also, it can't hold a signal for 5 minutes. When I find a local station - that plays great on every other radio, it plays for minutes on this unit just fine, then starts to slowly loose the signal and drift until its just all static. Love the flash player - I think all stereos should have this.
Summary: Bought this stereo system from HEB food store here in San Antonio for $99. The only problem I have had with it is that, as several other reviewers have noted, the FM radio stations seem to fade out a couple of minutes after you turn it on. You can turn it off and turn it back on, or just switch around to a few different stations and then switch back to the station you want to listen to, and it will be okay for awhile.
Summary: FM Tuner did not work well. It would tune a station, then fade to fuzz after about 20 seconds. We kept it because the unit sounded great with the CD player. Then, after a couple months the CD sound started to hiss. It seems one of the speakers went out. It is now out of store warrenty so I can't return it, so I shipped it back to RCA and am waiting for a replacement unit.
