Looks nice.
Just be warned if you buy a radio from USA, they work on a slightly different radio frequency range than we do, so you'll miss out on a lot of radio channels.
If I remember correctly (my brother made this mistake about 20 years ago), they have the same FM range, but where ours goes up in 0.1 (90.5 - 90.6 - 90.7...) theirs skips all even digits, do its more like 90,5 - 90.7 - 90.9....
This might have changed, I dont know
