The MP3 connectivity is brilliant. You just plug it in a play! Nice and small, since the space where I wanted to put it is limited. The Eco Power idea is excellent.

Really good spec for price, USB, DAB Radio, Bass and Treble adjustment, Bass Boost, Remote etc.. Very nice modern design. Good clean sound.

Very awkward to operate tape controls, you tend to push the unit away as you do it!
