I bought this for my wife for her birthday. She likes cooking and asked for a under the counter radio for when she is in the kitchen. I stepped it up and got her an under the counter radio / cd / Aux player. The mounting instructions were easy, the remote works from a good distance, The radio (and antenna) gets all the stations in range of our house, we havent tried the cd player yet (mostly because its 2011 and cd's are so 1990. My wife likes to plug in her Droid incredible with the aux cable and play mp3's, slacker rario, or pandora radio through it. The cd player doesn't play mp3 disc's so lose 1 star for that because like I said it's 2011. If the cd player can't play mp3 disc's then you might as well make it play records or 8 tracks. Also I would have liked a little bit bigger or more powerful speakers. My wife said the sound from the radio sounds like it is comimg from a clock radio, but we both agreed it was louder than her phone's built in speakers. Overall I am happy with it and so is my wife (which is the important thing anyway right?). I would definately recomend this to friends and family.
