Looks nice coming out of the package. Five stars for appearance. No idea about battery life, durability, all that other jazz. I mean, how durable does an under-cabinet radio need to be? You're not going to put it over your stove are you? You didn't, did you? Oh my. Either way, the first thing we did was install it. Probably should've tested it first. Hindsight. It's 20/20. Plugged in my IPod to the "docking station" which is really just a simple output to the receiver, and it sounded like one of those track and field P.A. speakers from back in the olden days. The ones that make everyone sound like a Charlie Brown teacher if you're over ten feet away. All tin and treble, no bass. Thought perhaps after a while that it's just that auxiliary input... I'll try a CD. Err. Wrong. Didn't even try the FM receiver capability. This thing was installed yesterday and is going back today. Boo hiss, RCA. I am greatly disappointed. Especially now that I have four holes in my cabinet and nothing to show for it.
