Summary: the stereo is gorgeous to look at, however when the stereo is off you can not view the time and when the stereo is on you have to go through some many sequences just to view the time. when the stereo is off, the display is also off and totally dark, nothing is displayed. i have never seen a stereo where you could not see the time..
Summary: I was looking for a nice, loud portable stereo for my exercise room and this stereo failed. It sounds great at low volume for a small room, but not for a larger room while you are running on a treadmill. The 5-1/4" speakers just couldn't please.
