I wish I could say something good about this item but I can't. I bought it some time ago and have had nothing but trouble with it. Firstly the speakers gave a really poor sound and had to be replaced (within four weeks of purchase), then we kept having problems with the cassette feature that kept turning itself off for no reason. We took it back for repair when this started happening but they couldn't find a problem so this still happens. Now, after about a year (but less than two plays a month - I would say we have used the unit around 30 times IN TOTAL over that time) the display has packed up and we have to guess or count when we play CDs, can't tell where the tuner is and don't know what is happening with the tape (which regularly turns itself off). I have written to Kenwood, but they are totally disinterested - it is just over a year old and no warranty remains. This is the worst product I have ever bought and I would strongly recommend that anyone considering purchasing one of these thinks again! I hope this has been of help and stops someone else paying out good money for what has turned out to be old rubbish!
