Summary: I like the unit for the audio tape concvenience. It allows my family to listen to our preferred tapes and myself to my CD. My wife loves to listen to her favorite radio station while folding laundry in the basement. The price for all these features was also a good incentive for my ordering this unit.
Summary: SEEING THE SEPARATE WOOFER SPEAKERS GOT MY HOPES UP THAT THE UNIT COULD DELIVER GOOD BASS AND HIGH SOUND VOLUME. UNFORTUNATELY, THE BASS (BOOSTED) IS WEAK AND THE SOUND TOTALLY COMES APART IF YOU TRY TO CRANK IT UP A BIT. IT IS A GOOD LOOKING UNIT AND SEEMS WELL-BUILT. LACKS A CLOCK OR LED READOUT FOR RADIO WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT FEATURES. TUNING IS DIFFICULT AND THE DIAL IS WAY OFF FREQUENCY. WISH ME BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME.
Summary: But it works pretty good. You do have to put in the 10 D batteries even though it's plugged into an outlet to get the best sound. I'm not sure I'd recommend it if you had the resources to get something better. I didn't, but for what it cost, I'm not unhappy.
Summary: I really like this boom box. It didn't cost alot and it does everything I like to do when I record with an external microphone. Not to many boomboxes have that feature. My first boom box did but it bit the dust.
I was very happy when I found it on Amazon .com.
Summary: This product was not AT ALL what I expected. It is nothing more than old cheap technology in a new technology wrapper. I have a shower radio that sounds better. It has NO notable powered sub function. It's sonic qualities don't exist. I would like to return it. It's crap.
