I can't really say one over the other. Good thing about the sony is that it can be replaced for about $150.
Mine sat out all night in the rain, still works but the tuner portion went out.
responded worse to a foamy bike wash than it did to actual rain ? ?
long story short, try and cover up your electronics
the actual PCB got wet, had it all in pieces yesterday drying it out, still the tuner never came back. everything else working.
I'd like to look into buying some spare circuit boards rather than the whole radio.
the splash cover thru Hawgwired may be for an Alpine head unit and a Batwing fairing.
