I gave this retro radio to my girlfriend this morning as a valentines gift. She loves it. It's leather around the sides and the handle, and a grey plastic on the front. Looks great, and also sounds really good. The first thing I noticed is how heavy it is, which I'm informed is a good thing for audio products. It's wooden construction rather than the normal plastic, and you can really tell when you play at decent volume. All in all, very happy with it.
