Summary: I was so excited to get this boombox to use the c.d. player. There is NO bass. The volume control is manual, and it doesn't get very loud. Finally, the remote doesn't even have a volume control on it. It is lightweight and it does have a c.d. player, cassette, and radio for such a small unit. However, I really was counting on it being louder and to use the remote. Disappointing to say the least. It's been less than 6 mos.
Summary: I ordered this boombox based on the reviews listed here. It arrived in its original box that was all beat up and had two holes in it and only one side of the box was taped. I knew when I opened the box the CD player would be damaged, but was surprised it wasn't. Then I played a CD and was terribly disappointed in the quality of the sound. It has absolutely no bass. I compared it to another CD player I have and there was no comparison.
Summary: This boombox does what I wanted: I can copy CDs onto blank cassette tapes so that I can easily play them in my car (no cd player in my older car!). Also able to play from my large collection of aging tapes--hate to have all those goldie-oldies unavailable to me. The sound quality is good and all buttons user-friendly. I can also play CDs that I have created on it without problems.
Summary: This thing has the WORST bass sound I've ever heard. Just zero low end. It's also bigger than it looks. I would never buy this for a primary stereo, but if - like me - you just want something to play in the garage while you're dinking around, it's good enough. It is a nice looking design and it seems to be made fairly well. Good radio reception too. But really, THE BASS SUCKS - and I'm not even the type to usually notice things like that.
Summary: The unit I purchased was not as well made, nor sounded as good as the older unit I had. That one went to my son.Thinking I'd get the same sort of performance. I'ts ok, but not as nice as the old one. By the way they where both JVC, and the same "almost" model.....Around the same price.
Summary: Bouth this item after reading the product description that it had 20 preset stations for the radio 10AM and 10FM.Imagine my suprise whne i recieved item opened it and found it to be a manual tuning knob instead of preset buttons.never would have purchased this itme had it been accurately describe.It is what it is a low priced bare essential boombox.And should be more accuraetly describe as that.took me 2 minutes t9o realize was a poor purchase boxed it up and returned...
With a Couple of Added Features, It Would Have Been Perfect

Summary: I don't know why I thought this boom box came with bass boost but it absolutely does not. Although the sound isn't bad, it would have been better with bass boost. Also the remote only controls the CD. You can't turn the box on and off or turn the volume up or down which I found to be disappointing. Had I not ordered the box through the mail I probably would have exchanged it for one that had bass boost but I didn't want to pay to ship it back.
Summary: This JVC is a very simple design and so is the remote control. The remote control should control the power on/off feature but it does not! It does not even control the volume or mute, it just controls the CD operation and that's it. Very disappointed with this so called remote. The sound is just okay, it does not have a bass, treble or even super bass option. This unit is the BARE BASICS, nothing more - nothing less... It will be good for kids or for the job site...
