5 of 5 TEAC PD-301-X CD Player/FM Tuner August 27, 2021
Reviewer: JV from United States  
This compact unit has a very nice fit and finish. The dimmable/off display is much appreciated. The light around the power switch is another matter. They could have left that out, but that's my only nitpick. The most important aspect is the sound quality, which is surprisingly good. I have no problem recommending this little gem.

In addition, Todd was knowledgeable and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from him again.
