I use primarily for this position (in the beautiful brown color) for CDs and USB port (very convenient). Some radio stations are hard to capture, but it has always been the lottery with those positions. To listen to the cd include a small breath and a soft click to rehearsals do not bother, but are still present, the eternal modes Repeat, Repeat All, Intro and Program (which I often use to fly a cd before the main listening) are still available. The great strength of this position is its USB port, with information display on the small blue screen, the sound is really beautiful and clean. I almost always use a stereo headset for better immersion. Buttons are few and instinctive to use. I recommend it provided you do not use it as radio.
