I Own 2 of These--Oops!
17 April 2014
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.
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.
zero quality control, DOA , sending back to amazon

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.
Summary: I am extremely disappointing with this boombox. I purchased it primarily based on all the positive reviews on Amazon and was really hoping for a great product. Save your money and buy something else. The sound quality is simply horrendous. It pumps out bass but then muffles everything else.
Summary: The unit was purchase from a third party vendor through amazon. During the several weeks in which it worked, I was fairly pleased with the product: the sound quality was good, the remote was a useful feature.
Summary: Wanted a fairly simple boom box for the wife as a kitchen radio. Its a little bigger then the one it replaced. Plays most of the CD's I burn on my PC even though it says it won't (the next model is advertised as having this capability). That was a chance I took and came out on the lucky side.
Summary: This review is from: Sony CFDG505 Radio Cassette Recorder Boombox (Black) (Electronics) I am very glad I got this boombox. It is our main music source at home and fulfills that role very well.
Summary: I did quite a bit of online research prior to purchasing this Sony boombox and I kept coming back to it. Yep... it's kinda ugly and... yep, it has a very small LCD display. But, it kept getting the best user reviews of any boomboxes I researched.
Summary: I decided to order this boombox based on the positive reviews. I am an audiophile, but I've never had the money to indulge in the highest end products. I wouldn't say that I'm overly picky, but I truly value sound quality above all else.
