Not As Great As A Sony Product Should Be

Summary: I think Sony is slipping with their products. To much volume with bass generates rattling of speakers. In playing CDs that I created, some of the tracks cut out and then back in at times. Thought it was a heating or recording issue, but I have tried several CDs and they cut out in different places, so I am not too thrilled with this player. Radio works fine. Have not tried the cassette yet. Will advise later on that.
Summary: I have alot of tapes I still love to listen to and it's hard to find a radio/cassette player recorder around these days. I have gone through 3 of these things and each time the cassette button has broken. I returned one and got a replacement and then I just gave up. I was attracted to the sound which was good and the price which was good too but they didn't even last a year.
Summary: I brought this item 1yr.and 1 month ago.It just compleatly stopped working,sony would not replace it.They said they could replace it for $78.00 dollars,I paid $96.00 for it,why would someone pay $78.00 dollars for something that just quits for no reason.I will never buy a sony prouduct agin.
Summary: Sound is amazing, bass has depth, pitch is normal but could use a more finely tune-able adjustment from the different presets that are standard. I can't increase treble so that kinda sucks but the sounds is good and great for parties and lights up at the center. I bboy with it.
Summary: Just wanted to go on record as pleased with this Sony CFDG505 Boombox. I have a $30 Emerson Boombox, this $90 Sony, and a full blown component stereo approx $1200. The Sony sound quality is noticeably about halfway between the 2 other ways I can play music, and better to my ear than any other boombox I have heard (I don't claim to have heard everything).
Summary: This was a purchase for my blind son who is very picky when it comes to sound. He loves it! He has perfect pitch, so he can hear the little nuances in sound that we cannot hear. The subwoofer is awesome. He finds it easy to use. He especially likes the remote. I think it is well made and perfect for the price. If you have any questions, post a comment/reply and I will try to answer ASAP for you.
Summary: After reading tons of reviews from many sites, the bulk of enthusiastic reviews led me to this now-discontinued gem. Two negative comments that gave me pause turned out to be not true. Several people stated there was no way to skip tracks: well, there are two directional buttons on the uncluttered CD playdeck that can take you to the right track.
Ugly machine with great sound and ( mostly ) sound construction.

Summary: Right away, I will tell you the two problems I've had with this machine - first of all, it is really ugly. If you want something that is going to look nice in your living room, unless you have a decor that hinges upon Harley Davidson gear, etc., this machine is not going to look good. Second, the cassette section hasn't worked right for a long time and requires someone to hold things down or else it keeps stopping.
Summary: I got this boom box for 2 reasons: 1. Sound, 2. Line in. When I read the reviews I saw and heard this thing is big. Guess what!...it's big. The display is small but I hardly use it anyway and how many times do you need a display when you know what you are listening too. It is pretty simple to set up, presents, and operation is pretty easy to figure out. The sound is great. I use an iPod and iphone through the line in.
