I am not writing this holding a grudge. This is a piece of garbage radio. The face plates fall off the speakers. The radio fresh out of the box did not function properly as the faceplate buttons do not interact well with the radios buttons. You have to press very very hard and sometimes that does not work. DUAL will replace under warranty but I have to pay freight. How is this fair?

      Purchased for my husband for Father's Day! Ski boat addition. I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality for that price. Needless to say it was a winner and we enjoy the music on the water. Definately cannot go wrong with this system.

          Purchased to replace an existing AM/FM/CD receiver in my run-a-bout, was easy to install & wire, easy to operate, and sounds terrific for an inexpensive system. Also a big plus is the front located USB & audio inputs. Great product for the money!
