            The radio is good nice clean sound. The only bad thing is that it's too expensive
            My friend got a radio that was cheaper and sounded better.

                  Used on a 36' sailboat...in cabin not exposed to elements (it is also in a protective case). Have had two of these and neither lasted over 14 months. After about 6 months little malfunctions start to appear and get progressively worse (CD player begins to skip intermittently, then sound, then am/fm). First one - thought was a fluke; replacement did same thing.

                    I was actually here pulling up the info on this unit to see what the warranty is. I purchased this unit at my local store about 14 months ago. 1 of the speakers quit all together and the other works when you beat on it. I put all new connectors on today with no luck. I used a test car speaker to verify the wiring. I barely use my boat and it's garaged. The speakers are junk.

                        The reciever worked fine for about 6 weeks then just quit. It never got wet or suffered any abuse, just quit. I replaced this one with a different brand from a different source. No problems with new reciever.

                            Brand new out of box installed. Unit had power no display. Doesn't even come with speaker wire. Waste of [$]. No Splashguard which manual states should be installed with unit. Also, no amfm antenna. Really? There are much better "complete" marine cd player combos out. Sony has come down in quality.

                              I was surprised how good the sound was. For a relatively cheap marine stereo. I had the boat thumping in no time. Comes with Stereo, 2 speakers and a cheap remote control.The one con I really have, would be the trip to [@] to buy the connection for the speaker cable to speakers. (that really should be included)

                                  West Marine fails to tell its customers that the reciever they sell does not fit the stero, they dont even sell the part that fits it.... if you buy this package you will need to buy a Sirius AXV100 reciever, same price as other one sold at West Marine just not carried there yet. Ill let you know how it works out
