Summary: without being a rival for a real great monster sound system which I already have, this is a nice small portable way of carrying your musing around and the price was right and the shipping time was fast

Summary: I was very pleased with the sound quality and sharpness of this boombox. It is light enough to carry and use in any room. I use it with my meditation group and the sound is very good when played softly. For me it was a very good buy.
Summary: I'm very satisfied with this product. The sound quality is very good for a small, portable boombox. I could have purchased a cheaper product at Wal-Mart (Durabrand), but I'm happy I made this decision. I don't play many CD's right now, but the boombox is also a great emergency radio should inclement weather leave me without electricity. My only negative comment is I had to purchase four AA and six C batteries for all systems to work (including the remote control).
Summary: I purchased one of these last year from another vendor and loved it. Good sound, easy to scan stations, reliable CD play. The cassette controls also seem very solid - unlike the Aiwa it replaced. Yet, now I have received two defective units from Amazon, both of which I returned. The reason for this is that the volume down button is unresponsive. Amazon may have received a bad batch - b/c the identical model I tried at a nearby store worked fine.
Summary: I was looking for a basic boombox and after one disastrous model from a no-name maker, I decided to get this Panasonic. I've been quite happy from Day One. First of all, this boombox has pretty good sound for a small audio machine. It also has four preset equalizer settings that's simple to use and does make a difference to sound output. The remote control also has a "sound virtualizer" button that allows you to generate 3D effects for the sound output.
Summary: The sound is just wonderful. The remote is so convenient when listening to books at bedtime. Leave the "Sound Equalizer" button on and play the music louder and you'll swear you have surround sound. Just a great product for the money. I recently bought headphones and enjoy it even more.
Summary: This is one of the few boomboxes left in the market with which you can enjoy classical music. It produces a sound that has richness, but also clarity, particularly when you compare it with the muddy sound that comes from almost every other boombox. It has equalizer modes that make it perfectly fine to listen to rock, rap, or anything else too, and the features and controls are very convenient.
Summary: Overall, I like this Boombox a lot. I haven't used the cassette yet, but the reception on the radio is very good. I like the digital tuner. The speakers sound good. There are a few things I don't like. When playing mp3s, you cannot fast forward or rewind through the songs (only to the next song). I also don't like the remote control. Why do we need a remote? It's just another thing to lose.
