Summary: This is the Sony CFD-S05 listed under a description rather than a name. I have had it for a couple of years now, and it does exactly what I need it to. I have it sitting on my desk so that I can listen to a CD, tape (use Type I normal tape only) or the radio while I am working or moving around. I have used all three media and I love it. The sound is good, and all of the controls are on the front and at my fingertips.
Summary: I love everything about this little boombox. I bought it to play cds while working in my shop.It far exceeds my expectations. Everything on it works perfect, and the fm radio picks up better than a stereo unit my wife paid over $300.00 dollars for. I would tell anyone who needed a small radio, cassette player,or cd player to buy the sony boombox.
Summary: This thing does not sound at ALL like described in the ad! There is no "mega bass" or low rich tones!! Liars! It sounds like a transistor radio! When the mega bass is on there is only one chin-hair's-worth of difference! Sounds BAD! Not worth the money! Tried to return but couldnt get a return label, and was told they only send electronic labels. I said my printer is broken, and asked several times why cant you print it out there and mail it to me?
The Sony Radio Cassette Recorder Boombox is great!

Summary: We needed a way to play long-owned cassettes. We have been playing and sorting all of our cassettes for about 4 weeks. It is playing well -- great sound. We have not recorded anything yet, but are hoping that works just as well.
