Summary: I bought this boombox as a small and cheap last-minute replacement for a broken stereo system, but "cheap" certainly doesn't describe it! This boombox packs a lot of sound in a small package. The speakers produce a clear, rich, thoroughly enjoyable sound, and the controls are extremely intuitive and easy to use.
Summary: I have had this unit for quite a while I think I got it when it was on sale. I still use it in the bedroom listening to cd's putting me to sleep at night. Great deal. The controller is another story if you make a controller with all the same size buttons with no distiguishable pattern make it illuminate so you can see it at night. I have memorized many controllers by use but this one I still have to turn on a light to find the right button.
Summary: Valentine's Day is my one chance per year to make up for all the stupid, lazy, thoughtless, horny, arrogant and unromantic things my wife has put up with since the last V-Day. My only hope to get out of the doghouse and back in the bunkhouse is to pull off a Grand Romantic Gesture that makes her forget the Neanderthal she lives with for 364 days in between. Also, I don't want to spend too much money. Some of that stupid, lazy, thoughtless stuff can get pretty expensive.
Summary: Hello. This is my first review here on Amazon. First off. I have owned this product for about 5 years now, and It is saying working great. I used the alarm feature for nearly 3 years before I got a better alarm system, closer to my bed. The sound quality is great and meets my expectations. and I always have the Mega Bass option on.
Summary: This is an inferior product. I bought it mainly for use on vacations or as something on which to audition tapes or discs when I don't feel like using my component system. Even for these limited uses, it is bad news. Despite its limited use, the CD player tends to skip on discs that play perfectly elsewhere. The tape player is even more unreliable. Sony puts sound mode settings on this unit, but they make absolutely no difference, regardless of the source.
Summary: I bought this 6 years ago but should have returned it immediately. Although I live in a large city the FM reception is practically non-existant. The antenna has to be set just right to pick up the strongest station in town, but even that dissolves in interference when a person or pet walks across the room or a car goes down the street. I've tried the antenna at different lengths and attached wires and foil to it to no avail.
Summary: While searching for a newer boombox with SD/Flash reading capabilities, I was amazed to see the Sony box that I purchased over seven years ago still in production. Let me just say that no boombox, relative to a mid-priced stereo receiver, is going to give you awsome sound, despite the claims. However, this box is very solidly built and has a warm, rich bass sound that does not distort. Turn it up almost to the highest setting and it still plays cleanly.
