This is the worst piece of garbage I have ever held in my hands. The first one I sent to me did not receive AM stations. 'Sorry if this is not important to you. I purchased this for my parents' kitchen so they could hear the news while having breakfast. FM had poor reception but worked to a marginally acceptable level. I never tried the CD player. Unit number one was returned. Unit number two arrives today and the AM works but it is HORRIBLE. I am in New York City (not in farm country) and every radio I own can receive numerous major stations without hash or static noise. Not this radio. Unlistenable due to interference, no matter where the unit is placed, or how it is oriented. I literally have a 40 year old AM/FM table radioi that blows this piece of junk out of the water. If AM listening is of any importance to you you will be disappointed. Oh yeah, and all this AFTER I drilled mounting holes in a kitchen cabinet. Shame on me -- I should have tried the radio before drilling, but I didn't think it'd be a total piece of crap.
