+Great 18-preset (FM) receiver
-Only one H-Bass setting (Off and on)
This is an excellent CD Receiver. Everyone who sees it (especially at night) comments about how amazing it looks, which it does. The glowing blue on the edges gives it an awesome look at night, as well as in daylight. The whole face flashes with volume change, which brings attention to it. It has 35 watts per channel, which is not amazingly powerful, but it does well for the average listener. It has a great control setup that is very intuitive. Although there are only 6 preset buttons, there are 3 FM sources, so there is a total of 18 presets. This receiver has many features that most other brands don't offer at this price, including an Auxillary input on the faceplate. The H-Bass feature greatly improves bass without distortion, since the Bass and Treble can be adjusted from -7 to 7. The H-Bass can only be turned off and on, unlike more expensive Aiwa systems with 3 settings. This is the only negative point about the stereo. This system is very versatile, with a 2.2 volt preamp output. It seems like a basic system due to its simple appearance, but it has loads of features. Most everyone should find this to be one of the best CD Receivers in its price range.

My factory Clarion tape deck. No comparison. The Aiwa has more amplification, better sound reproduction, and is so much better in every way.
