Excerpt: I bought this for myself so I could listen to books on CD when I came out of hospital and had to spend a lot of time resting. I just needed something that I could plug in next to my bed and had a reasonable sound quality.
Summary: A neat little player let down by a thin lack luster sound made worse by audible mains hum. I have bought shed loads of Philips products in the past and all good so that's why I went for this little unit when my old Philips player (music in the garage a must!) died of old age.

Summary: I bought this for my 6 year old for stories and music at bed time. For use in this kind of close proximity the sound is perfect - clear and with a great stereo sound. The radio is also very clear.
