I Own 2 of These--Oops!

Quipper, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased both boomboxes in 2008 from Amazon (for 2 different rooms), thinking that with the brand name they bore, the stereos would be great. My mistake. I've had great Sony products in the past, but operating certain functions on this particular model isn't intuitive at all. Also, within a year, one of the boomboxes started intermittently going 'on the fritz,' not allowing for any button to work now and then. E.g.

Review of Sony CFDG505 Radio Cassette Recorder Boombox

Amazon customer in Ohio, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: Grateful I was able to find a good boombox like this even if it is not new. There is nothing out in the market like this anymore. I love having a remote that lets me go to the exact track on a CD. The new ones don't do that. HOW DISAPPOINTING IS THAT. SHAME ON SONY!!

  • Summary: I was excited to receive this set in such a short (2 days) time from Amazon. I opened the box and packaging and plugged it in to check out all the features. Everything worked fine. I turned it off and unplugged it from the kitchen outlet, went to the garage, plugged it in and pushed the power button...NOTHING HAPPENED.

Fantastic for the money!

  • Summary: Purchased this item for 89.99, Went to Best Buy to check out the newer version of this model, I must say that the new model is terrible. This model is more stylish, more colorful and has the eq option which is much better that the other models push buttons. The remote can be programed for all your favorite stations and i have no problem with the distance or direction issue as previous reveiwers have mentioned. The cd works fine and also the cassette player.

four stars only cuz it didn't last long

  • Summary: this boombox has great sound, and I appreciate that it plays cds, cassette tapes, has radio, and has an aux input, all of which I use. However, now, after about 1 1/2 years, the cd player no longer works. It reads the cds, and even shows that it's playing the cd, but no sound comes out. I'm trying to decide whether to get it repaired or replaced; unfortunately, I may not find anything that plays cassettes; however, now a usb input has become more important anyway.

  • Summary: I love this boombox. I don't even think it's ugly anymore (I rather like the big glowy red ring now!) the sound is great, it's easy to use (IMO) it fits on my tiny dresser, too. Nice, solid machine that works very well and the price was right, too, when I bought it off Amazon. edit: been using it since January of 2011. Still works GREAT! My toddler dances to the music, it fills our home with clear, excellent sound even when I'm just listening to the radio. GREAT!

too much

Steve Sloane "public citizen", Amazon

  • Summary: All I needed was a portable radio w/cd player for my kitchen because I like to listen to music when I cook and sometimes enjoy listening to the radio, talk radio while I eat alone. I have some great old equipment for listening to my records, but have not kept up with technology. I expected that the Sony I bought would be about 1/4th the size. When the box arrived you would think it was a TV.

great boom box

  • Summary: This plays CD's and my old tapes ( and radio stations).I had a party and we were outside in the rain under a tent and this boombox saved the day! The sound was great, we didn't even have to max the volume and it came through loud and clear....and this was on battery use. It is hard to find something that will play my old 60's tape cassettes and sound good.This did the job very well.

  • Summary: Looked nice, unpacked it, plugged it in, put in a CD, sound came on, cool, then I noticed that the sound button didn't work, I stopped the CD. 20 seconds later, CD would not play. 30 seconds later, powered it off, try to power back on. Power would not come back on. Tried a different outlet, power still not back on. tried the remote control... no power.
