Dave loves to peel off the clear protective scratch prevention stickers, for the "sticker aficionados", but he left the one on the tuning dial after taking the one off of the cassette door. :palm:

That "The jack of all trades, master of none" comment made me laugh. :-DD

Kylie Monogue in mono in the 80's would sound the same on a modern $20,000 system.... crap. But Queen, yes there is a big difference.
Maybe someone who buys one of these as a birthday present would say he's just a poor boy from a poor family - spare him his life with this monstrosity.

I did notice a few others things. The etching on the PCB was dodgy on the left side. Also noticeable was the PCB inverted F antenna for Bluetooth. The BT audio chip is a JTEB14F5A which is one of those ultra low cost chips.

The factory in China has a factory code F100630. Is is where all the K-Mart Anko products are made. But there is no location or address on the web... I wonder why. The product DOES have the RCM mark on it and is double insulated. So its a winner winner, chicken dinner from a compliance perspective.

Ah, makes sense! That must be why the elderly in some nursing homes can be treated like shit for years and everyone's happy. :popcorn:
