Value for money!
matt on 28/10/2015 4 star rating

If its value for money then yes I would buy this unit again, it allows me to use blue tooth for music streaming and hands free calling along with playing my I pod. However i love my sound quality and the cde173bt just lacks that little bit. But then it is a low - mid range unit and good value for money.
