Summary: For some reason it skips a few seconds at random intervals when playing CD's (music CD not MP3) and getting it to pick up the iPod touch is an art.The CD playback is an issue because it's almost impossible to sit and enjoy the music when it skips some of the track.
Summary: Loud and heavy. This machine puts out great sound. I love the USB interface. Fill a jump drive up, plug it in and forget about the music and have fun. The remote is handy for turning up my favorites from across the room. It is big and pretty heavy, it gets left home sometimes for that reason.
