Summary: this is everything I expected. the sound is great. an added feature I didn't expect is the ability to record songs from the radio. It has a cd feature and also tapes are able to be played. this was worth the money spent.
Excerpt: I bought this to replace my old sewing room boombox. The CD player and tape player are just fine. I have a little trouble getting good radio reception, but then I had the same trouble with my old box! This unit is a convenient size and weight.
Summary: But it didn't work for me. I do believe though, that if classroom instruction is what you are dealing with, this will be a fine unit for you. I wanted it to work for me and my cassette tapes and I was not satisfied at all with the overall sound.
Summary: Best Player for the money. I realy like it & it has great sound when playing tapes or cd,s. I convert tapes to cd,s & use the tape player a lot. Had a big boom box give out on me so I bott this one & it still works. If you want a great sounding player and one that isn't going to quit after lot's of use. This is the player for you.
Excerpt: WANTED A RADIO TO LISTEN TO CD, AND RADIO BY MY POOL IN FLORIDA MY NAME BRAND UNIT HAD TERRIBLE SOUND. THIS UNIT IS ALMOST HIFI, LIVELY SOUND FOR CLASSICAL MUSIC. WISH IT HAD DIGITAL DIALING. HOWEVER IT PULLS IN ALL TWO CLASSICAL MUSIC STATIONS HERE IN SO FLA.
Excerpt: I bought the Califone Spirit CD/Cassette Radio Boom Box for an older friend of mine that is devoted to cassette tapes. But before I gave it to him, I tested it out for two days, and its a pretty solid machine. There's a volume control and bass boost button, which sounds great, but that's it. It plays CD's, CD-R/RW's very well, and the tape player can record the CD, radio, or utilize its embedded microphone, making recording voices easy with very good sound.
