Summary: After a few months of having this product, we noticed that it would often skip parts of songs or even full songs. At first we thought we could fix the problem if we cleaned the heads or the CDs. We were wrong. Soon the player wouldn't plan any cd with skipping songs. It soon became impossible to use it as a CD player. Unfortunately it was past the warranty period before we realized that the player was the problem and not our cds.
Summary: I purchased the RCA Shelf Stero, model #RS2653 and I am extremely disappointed. The first one I purchased and returned it because I just thought it was defective. I received a new one and after one year of just periodic use, I sent it in for repair. I was sent a new one and again after just one year and periodic use it too was defective. It plays well for about six-nine months and then something just happens.
Summary: For the price, this unit provides the multiple functions that I wanted. Multiple CD player with mp3 capability, tape casette player, and AM/FM radio. The only disappointment was the lack of audio power. At max volume the unit did not meet expectations and was not as loud as an existing 100 Watt unit.
Summary: This product is infuriating. When a cd gets the slightest tiniest scratch on it, it will not play! I have a 20 dollar boombox that will play cds that this product will not play! Furthermore, one day I opened the cd changer, and one of my cds disappeared! The stupid machine actually ATE my cd! I don't even know if it will work anymore, I am so mad I won't even touch it! Spend the extra money for a better product, and maybe even one made by a different company!
