    Does exactly what I wanted

    My wife and I are still radio listeners (Ticket P1's) and we needed to replace the radio in our master bath. I needed something with a full remote, AM/FM radio, and good sound. The bluetooth connection was a bonus for us. I found the radio fairly easy to set up and use. The reasons why I don't give it a 5* review are as follows: My biggest gripe is that the remote is difficult to read. I know my eyesight is going but wow, even with my glasses on and in a bright room I have a hard time reading the buttons. We have the radio on a shelf above our normal eye line (thus the reason for the need of a remote) this makes the clock and display practically unreadable. I assume that if it were at eye level or below it might be better. The last thing is that there is a preset volume level for when the unit is turned on. It doesn't matter what level it was when it was turned off, when you turn it back on it will return to that setting. This is not good when you are turning the radio on early in the morning or late at night when others are asleep as it is quite loud. The sound quality and ability to stay on the station we desire is very good. I'm happy with my purchase.

    Exactly what was expected

    My daughter wanted a cd player that hangs on the wall. I first ordered a no-name one off Amazon and it broke after 3 days. I returned that and bought this from Best Buy. It is exactly what we expected and even a little better. Sound is good for the size, it looks great on the wall and the bluetooth works perfect. You will not get premium sound system sound, but you'll also not get a tinny transistor radio sound. It sounds good and gets plenty loud. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable CD player for the wall.

    If it decides to work it always begins at volume 19 no matter what the setting was before waking up others It is holding my Bill Frisell CD hostage, it won't release it or play it The radio reception is poor maybe I just got a lemon as other reviews were positive

      Coffeeking, we're sorry to hear that the clock is acting up. We'd be happy to assist in troubleshooting at 1-888-999-4215 or prodinfo@dpiinc.com. Regarding the headphone jack mentioned in the ad, BestBuy is in charge of their ads so it's possible as mistake was made. This does not have a headphone jack, but does offer a 3.5mm audio input. We're sorry for any confusion and hope to hear from you soon. -Customer Support iLive

    Great features - detachable speaker and unit can be wall mounted. Only issue is the volume does not remain at the level it was at when you turn it off, Turning on, its very loud. Nice having a remote.

    Works as advertised but with cheap materials

    It works as advertised but the material is too light, I was thinking to hanging against the wall but it seems like it is not durable enough to go with screws.

      While we understand your hesitation, the unit was engineered to be hung on the wall and should not have a negative effect of doing so. If you need more assistance please reach out at 1-888-999-4215 or prodinfo@dpiinc.com and we'd be happy to help. iLive

    I like how narrow it is. It fits well on my office desk and doesn't take up too much space.
