I don't believe I even want to waste your time in drudging through the entire way this sytem works: the title to this opinion says it all.
The single most bad decision in my entire life - after getting married!!! Just kidding - was buying this stereo system. The second most bad was not taking it back to the store from where I bought it.
When I listened to this stereo in the store, they were somehow able to produce a CD to play on it that made it sound like the best value for money machine they had on the shelf. The thing was, that when i returned it home, I could find no such CD. No Acoustic Guitar, No Jazz, No Rock, No Classic, No Vocal, No Metal, No Fusion-Rock-Jazz, No Country, No Easy Listening, NO RADIO... NO NOTHING!!!!
The radio reception on this machine is crap, with no selection for stereo or mono, the sound virtualizer and extra bass do nothing to the speakers apart from either make them more tinny or smooth out the crackling in the radio reception, and the best way to improve the radio, CD, cassette sound quality out of this machine is by increasing the volume and pissing off your neighbours, which isnt a good idea if you live in the city, not so bad if you live in a shed on a hillside in Wales, but even as a welsh shepherd you would have the foresight to spend more and get a better quality machine!!!!
My advice: DONT BUY IT
