... and have to say that the pointer drive is anything but quiet stepper motor precision, sounds more like a sewing machine!
Is that normal for these radios? Did you contact the seller?
I've been considering one of these for a long time, but the uber high pricing has kept me at bay. Seems that for that price, it would support bluetooth streaming or have a usb port hidden somewhere in the back or via a extender wire.
Sorry for my long absence here. Yes, I contacted the seller and he was happy to give a full refund.
The concept is good and the finish is great, but the implementation both mechanically and electrically needs more refiinement.
