Summary: This was a big disappointment - maybe because I had also just received the Panasonic RX-D55GC-K I had ordered a week earlier. I was about to send back the Panasonic only because the AM/FM tuner was a bit weak. However, the differences in build quality and sound (both superb) have convinced me to keep the Panasonic. They don't make boomboxes with all these functions and good quality anymore.
Summary: I don't use often but when I did it is in the back bedroom. The sound quality for the price is very good. I have not found any problems, love the remote and the antenna picks up stations that I couldn't get ith my old am/fm....
Summary: I thought our old Sony was starting to fall apart as it had so much static on it. Because I thought the static was "the beginning of the end," I ordered this one (on sale, too) right away and then discovered that our old one was working fine the next day. This new one takes a little getting used to the way one plays a CD - it's not as simple as the first Sony we had. But it doesn't take long to get adjusted to the new way.
Summary: We had trouble finding a quality Boombox since these are now outdated but this Sony did everything, even allowing the connection to a MP3 player through input on the front. The sound is not high-end quality but it is what you would expect from a product this size. Player is very portable and we have had not issues.
Summary: I bought this radio because it has a cassette deck...very few radios still offer this. I also wanted a radio that I could leave plugged in to electric. I use this on my screened porch and it is just what I was looking for! I also love the remote...it's very small but works fine.
Summary: After looking at many other small home stereos & boom box I choose this. It is compact, easy to use, good quality & has very good sound for the size. I can make it pause & resume exactly at the same place if I push gently, or to one side. The other 50% of the time it resumes at the beginning of the track, as stated in other review. That is why I gave it 4 stars. It is nice to have the tape player,radio & CD all in one.
