Sound is good considering the price, iPod adapter and control thereof is useful as is USB port

Sony DAV-DZ280

 

the good thing about this product apart from it is very cheap for what it does and what you get is that the amount of decent quality picture and sound wise and the ease of use is amazingly easy straight out the box and away you go simple as 1,2,3
