Worst Receiver ever!
This is the worst receiver I have ever had the misfortune of owning, I am not sure what the other owners are use to that are ranking this so high. Let's begin 1. Black out function sometimes will not allow you to wake receiver back up 2. When you turn off the unit, the clock disappears too 3. Same button for turning unit off as to select another source i.e. cd, ipod, tuner so that many times, if you don't hold the button down long enough to turn off unit, you just end up selecting something else, Very very annoying 4. Ipod interface is terrible. Unit freezes for a few seconds every time you try to change a song or artist 5. Audio controls are spotty. You have very little adjustment options and those options are not always available for you depending on what input source you are using. Very confusing Basically, this is my first and last Alpine. My previous Kenwood and Sony headunits were not as expensive as this one but atleast they work and have a working clock I can see all the time
