bad Concertone issues are on older units.
since they hired Bob Fields, i see far less complaints about them.

i think they've done a lot to improve their products, especially in the last couple of years.
are there still some bad ones, of course but far less than previously.

the problem is that for a number of years, they were junk and it will take a long time for their name to improve in the RV community.

i wouldn't hesitate to get a newer Concertone, especially since their new ones have Bluetooth tech.

From the checking I did and what I have found out was that Cornerstone in now Genesis 3.0 They have upgraded the model #'s. Also what I found interesting is that FR is the manufacturer in the booklet that comes with it. I checked the web site for Cornerstone and the unit is the exact same thing that I have. Also cornerstone shows the set up for the sirus XM radio that also came in the package. It"s in Ind. same town FR head quarters is located. Or at least I should say that is the contact address.

I just purchased a genesis zx85 with Bluetooth and also own an older concertone zx75. Both work very well. When I had an issue with the 85 bob fields stepped up without being asked and fixed the problem ASAP. Any product line will have some issues and you will always hear from those folks (myself included). Plenty of happy campers out there as well.

it's Concertone, not Cornerstone.

and as far as i know, it's not owned by FR. it may be owned by Berkshire-Hathaway though. Concertone-made units are found in other brands of RVs, not just FR brands.

This has been discussed before, Concertone is not a Forest River or BH Company. Independently owned and operated for more than 14 years and as mentioned, I have been around for almost two years now.

Please don't automatically assume that your entertainment system is going to be crap because of what you read on these forums. I understand that yes, Concertone did have some problems with earlier models. We have a Genesis 3.0 in our '12 Rockwood and it has been problem free and it works and sounds fantastic! If you think negatively about something before you even see it, chances are you'll find something you won't like about it. For something that is in a mobile setting that is getting bounced around, and is subjected to extreme temperatures, it has worked flawlessly.
