My pre-party plans: Open the flap face and spin up a new CD. Allow Joe and Woody to admire, but never touch, the multi-color display. Use the card-type remote to crank up track #4 (it rocks!) with 50 Watts x 4. Switch to FM (with Pioneer's legendary Supertuner III) for a live concert, and toggle the Easy EQ button through the preset sound fields till I find "SuperBass" ... and, dang, we're there. Oh, well- there's always the ride home.
