AV100 (discontinued) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Bought this in January 2015 and have used it in northern Canada since then (three years, 1800 hrs) and it is really good! I have flown with this in Cessnas, Beavers, Otters and King Airs, and a couple times in a Norseman. In all cases it kept up with all volume levels, and is very comfortable, even after 10 hours of flying in a day. The down side, unfortunately, is that when things break it is hard to get in contact with the representatives to get it fixed. I snapped the GA plugs clean off after I accidentally let the cord dangle around my knee as I jumped out the door of the Beaver. It took a couple months and bunch of running around, to make contact, and get the parts for it to be fixed. There is good service once contact is made, but it was hard to make that initial contact.

The owners manuel has warning about use with a handheld radio -- that it must have a constant voltage when on. Do you know which aviation transceivers teh AV100 works with? I had to return an ICOM A6 because it would not work with the AV100. Help please.
