To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I had an old ‘boom box’ type unit with a plug and play radio with a lifetime subscription on it. They were literally going on 15 years old. I saw this and liked no antenna was needed and it was half the size. I knew my subscription included streaming so this was easy to set up as I also already had an account with a username and password. Sounds very good. It’s not audiophile levels good but good enough just to enjoy some music inside or even outside of the house. The screen looks great, albeit a little small, but gets the job done.
My father has a similar set up to my old one so for Christmas I bought him his own one of these and thus far my parents are enjoying it. They like the color screen which includes much more info then their old small plug and play ‘head unit’.
Prefect. No commitment required with any radio company (Sirius or Spotify). Just plug and play. I love it. Small and not a bad sound at all. I keep mine plugged in the wall all the time so I don't know nothing about the battery part. I really like my radio.
Now you have access to all the music only special channels for your whole house stereo. It works great, even if it's a little large, but it does have a built-in speaker. An optical out or HDMI out would be a great addition for surround sound.
