Summary: I whole-heartedly agree with reviewer number 1 - this is a perfect boom box except for the sound! I finally broke down and purchased an iPod and my old Sony Boom box does not have a line in jack so I had to purchase something that either had a jack or cradle for the iPod. This player has an awesome way of holding the iPod - it goes directly into the machine so it is very well protected and once inside, the buttons on the player take over so you don't need to access the...
Summary: The features and design of this little box would have been perfect. If only it didn't sound like crap. The under-powered 2W drivers had no presence, no bass what so-ever, even though it includes Sony's meaningless MegaBass. I love the fact that it is basically a CD/AM/FM Boombox with the ipod/iphone dock. I also love how my iphone docks and is protected by the cassette deck-like enclosure. Control with the remote was also pretty good.
Summary: I got this as a christmas gift to use with my iphone in my basement by my hobby setup. Being a basement, I don't need anything extraordinary or high-end. Having been a fan of Sony products I was excited to try this out. Unfortunately, I was surprisingly disappointed. The sound from this is nothing short of horrid. It has what Sony terms "mega bass." That's funny since even with the "mega bass" (which you cannot select or deselect) there is ZERO low-end to this device.
