Summary: The overall sound is OK, not great. Certainly the system is much larger than my 17-year-old Panasonic boom box and noticeably inferior in sound. The radio is analog tuning and gets very poor reception. The Panasonic has digital tuning and it always outperforms this unit. Just moving around the kitchen makes the reception drop in and out. And since it is analog with a tiny tuning display it isn't even clear what stations you are listening to until they announce it.
Summary: Anyone interested in a simple stereo with CD, radio and cassette player will be happy with this model. It's really ideal for a child's room. The only complaint I had is that it didn't have a place for headphones. It was unbelieveably inexpensive and has a pretty good sound to it. If I needed another small stereo, I would definitely purchase another one of these items.
Summary: I loved being able to play the audiobooks in the MP3 format from the library and other audio books for the library on CD's , I listen to my music and audiobooks about 12-14 hours a day for 2 weeks before the CP player went out . Amazon was good about letting me send it back and exchange for another produce since I did not have the original box.
Summary: I orderd the black stereo and received the silver. They were willing to exchange the silver for the black one. I deceided not to inconvenience my son as it didn't bother him. At least they deceided to fix the problem with me. Thank you for working with me.
