Packs many nice features but there is "no Boom in this box"
8 April 2013
Summary: I like that this device packs many features- It is portable, has Fm radio and plays CD's and Ipod. Has a remote- runs on A/C (with cord) or D/C .(battery compartment -C size batt) It has a compartment that keeps ipod away from dirt and sand when at the beach /out doors. The sound is disapointing though as it does not play very loud even on highest setting -I keep the Mega bass setting on which improves the sound only slightly.
Summary: As a boombox this is okay. It has a all the bits, you'd expect such as radio tuner, a CD player and a decent iphone/ipod touch dock that kind of sits like a cassette deck. Good controls and a handsome looking device. What it doesn't do as well is actually playback music. The music is mediocre, the bass is non-existent and there are no controls for the equalizer. If you can get it for the cheap go for it otherwise get something better.
Summary: I just got this boombox, I needed it for a preschool. I expected it to be much louder and with a bass as it advertises. Not what I expected for the price. Maybe it's good for a house setting. Also Ipod enclosed is a bit anoying and to see which track your one you'd have to bend down each time, it's not on top or readily visible. I expected a much better sound from a sony.
Summary: I was looking for a unit that would play IPod, CD, FM and AM. I thought this was it. I was wrong. Music sounds very artificial -- I wish I could think of a better word to describe it. Bottom line: listen to the unit yourself before you buy it.
Summary: Everything is as good as I expected with my purchase. It was delivered in only 2 days with the free economy shipping too. My only criticism about the unit is that the display LCD is dimmly lit and very small; making it hard to see. I think the sound is good for a unit of its' size and would recommend it to any one looking for an inexpensive iPod/CD Boombox.
