Summary: We so wanted to buy a cassette player before they disappear for good, as we found hundreds of cassette tapes in the basement and some even had talking on them from family's youth. This is all you need for a basic all round player, nothing too technical and the sound quality is great for what it is. It's not a 'Bang and Olufsen' after all, it's a Sony and they are good enough. Although the Walmart web sight said they were 'out of stock' in the Wilkes-Barre, Pa store.
Summary: Others have commented on the complexity of set up. I agree. Study the instructions and take your time FOLLOWING the instructions. I have a comment/suggestion for Sony. Yeah! Right! I'M making suggestions to SONY! This type of radio is more than likely going to be used in a location that is LESS than likely going to be spacious. It's going to be placed on a shelf against a wall. Maybe a kitchen, etc.
Summary: This is a good product at a good price. Its made from plastic and it works very well and has a good and clear sound for its price. It has an AM/FM digital readout receiver that stores the frequencies you want along with an adjustable external FM antenna. The CD and cassette players work well. The only misleading advertising message is "Mega Bass." There is no mega bass.
Summary: I bought this to have by my bed to play nature sounds cds at bedtime. I was pleasantly surprised to hear such a range of bird songs and other sounds that I had not heard on my old cd player. The size is compact & perfect for me, the sound is excellent for my purposes & my music sounds good too, I love the repeat/shuffle feature, and all around I am so happy with this purchase. I am considering buying a second one since I read it is being discontinued.
Summary: Sorry to say that this Sony product does not meet the standards expected of the manufacturer. I wanted another sound machine to meet the standards of the GE Super Radio II. I liked the features of the Sony so I purchased it without knowing the quality. I am returning the unit because of the poor audio quality. I was disappointed with the mega bass which did very little to add more bass.
Summary: I wanted to listen to cd's that I borrowed from the library while I ride my exercycle. The first player I bought (a Memorex) had terrible sound quality, so I exchanged it for this Sony. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it.
Summary: Based on so many positive reviews I purchased this unit. I have only had it several weeks and I am very satisfied. Needed a unit to play tapes and CDs. The radio is fine and one can pre set favorite stations. The unit is used in my bedroom. Wish it had a remote so I could use it in the dark. Product was delivered in a timely manner.
