I've only owned the item a day, but so far so great! It looks ADORABLE in my retro kitsch themed living room, and I have no problem tuning in to my favorite stations. Don't expect superb quality sound like you get from some of the pricier brands, but for what it is, the sound is good. The only negative I can think of is that the AC adapter is BULKY. Takes up a lot of space on the power strip.
I wanted a new radio in my kitchen to replace the ugly silver digital alarm clock/i-pod dock I had. I found this beauty in the store...in red! It fits my vintage themed kitchen perfectly. Sounds great, looks great! I could not love it more!
5th week of this sitting on the shelf in the bathroom being used for 30 minutes a day while I get ready for work and it's on the 3rd set of batteries! That AC plug is huge and gets hot so I don't want to leave it plugged in. Ridiculous to have had to change out the batteries every couple of weeks.
Just opened the box and this radio is a pure deception. Design is amazing, great retro look, beside the ACL display, but built quality is fair. Sound quality is a disaster. Tuner is not a real digital one, the rotating knob is not precise enough and you can loose your radio station very easy. I would have prefer an analog tuner but with more precise tuning knob. The auxiliary plug is bad, if you plug it to your Iphone/Ipod be careful not to move your Mp3 device to change a song, you could lose input sound right away. ACL display is flickering, sometimes is very dimmed and other times too bright.
I don't think I will buy any Crosley product again. They sure look good but this is it.
