I should have read the reviews prior to purchasing. The product arrived and besides the poor sound quality (by design), the CD player worked for about 10 seconds, then just quit working. I made sure to keep the original packing, since this is the third JVC product that I have received broken (2 HD car radios from Crutchfield before this). This boombox is on its way back to Amazon for a refund. In the Crutchfield case, I ended up having to buy a different brand of car stereo, since every JVC product I received was broken. I am through with JVC after being a loyal customer for so many years. I can't believe the garbage quality of such a reputable brand.
