I don't agree. At least I want the possibility that the light goes on
when I press vol+/- :

If I connect my AJB to my car radio, I usually set the volume to about
84. There, hearing that the volume is loud enough is not sufficient,
because the volume depends on the volume setting of my car radio, too.
And the display is much more readable with the light on.

BTW: The additional light consumes 30 mA, and the AJB consumes ~ 160
mA in normal usage. I think this 30 mA for a few seconds is not too

Bye, Uwe.
