Sweet! You have the Oct 2 projected shipping date also? I do love the TDK as well. I hope this Aiwa blows it away!

Not that I can find. And I was kinda pissed off. I was led to think it came off. Very limited control use. This thing pounds out some sound. Light weight and can be carried everywhere.

Did not do a sound test. It sounds good. And is worth the money.

Thought as much. The YouTube video tests were pretty impressive.

How is the build quality?

Surprisingly very light in weight. Solid, easy carry. Puts out the sound and bass nice. Well worth the cost. It's a nice listen @40% power. Higher does just that. It gets up there. The grill will show marks from the oils on your finger tips. The power switch in the rear is sew hat a pain in the boot. The display turns off quickly, with no way of keeping illuminated full time. The battery charges super fast.

So the EQ/spectrum analyzer doesn't stay on?

The eq you preset will stay in that play mode. Not equipped with a motion analyzer. All illumnations shiat off making it a completely black box with music coming from it. Amazon has all five star rating. WS kinda cool at the spate of the moment to just bring and put on vanity while I shaved.

That's disappointing that there isn't any kind of light show from it.  I thought there was a spectrum display on the front. 

 

Also, given how light it is, how far can you crank it before the chassis starts resonating?

No dispay is a bummer. The 4 presets you can crank without issue. The manual full out goes insanely loud. I set all to level 4 and it handles full out blast. Put to highest setting 6 across the board pushes it too much. But I recommend this a must have to all collectors

Based on what I have, I would need to do a sound test. But from my speculations. The conion has super power and gets screaming loud. But the aiwa has a cleaner sound with productive bass. The M70 is another loud unit and distorts kinda soon. The aiwa disperses sound better through its 5 speaker system. The 777 is a cool sound. But the aiwa would kill it I think. Not sure about the not pictured 6400. But a side by side would be a better test. But in ending. Just buy 1. You'll be pleasantly surprised for what you get for the price.
