For years I had this huge cd player that sat on my counter in the kitchen. I don't have a lot of counter space so it was in the way all the time. Finally, for christmas this year my husband bought me this under the counter radio. I have never been so excited about a present. It only plays one cd but that's enough for me, I'm usually listening to the radio. It's very simple to use, just the press of a button to turn it on, and the press of another button to change the station. The remote control is also very easy to use. Very few buttons. It produces great sound and I can turn it on in the kitchen and hear it in adjoining rooms if I want. The antenna is just a small wire that runs up the side of the cabinet. It is hardly even noticeable. If you're looking for a radio that's reasonable in price with good sound and is easy to use, this would be one that I would recommend.
