Sony is not what it used to be - this is a LEMON by design

  • Summary: Do not buy it. There is really not a single reason to own this thing, it has no redeeming qualities to match its faults.
  • Pros: Features on paper: Aux IN, CD, alarms, compactness
  • Cons: Features function: Poor volume, poor sound, poor controls

  • Summary: This is a good value, $40 gets you dual alarm, cd, large display, but no digital radio/volume controls, just poorly placed knobs.
  • Pros: Big display numbers, dual alarm, convenient cd player, adjustable brightness
  • Cons: Radio and volume dials are badly placed and not digital, no presetting of stations

User Unfriendly Clock Radio

  • Excerpt: This may be less expensive and may be Sony, but boy is it user unfriendly.
  • Pros: Very few. Large digits on the clock portion if visually impaired. CD.
  • Cons: No presets. Volume control nearly impossible to locate. Same with manual, old-fashioned tuner control. AVOID.

  • Pros: Large display, size, top loading CD, in-line jack for MP3 player, analog tuner, price
  • Cons: Alarm buzzer, sound quality, volume range, no headphone jack, volume and tuner knob location

  • Pros: has all the basic functions of a CD-clock radio
  • Cons: feel like 70/80ish radio

The Complete Package

E. Simmons, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: Have had now 3 of these radios and just love them. Don't understand why they are being discontinued as they, in my opinion are the complete package. My only one little complaint is that in this one, there is no repeat button for CD usage, which the other 2 have/had. I like to leave a "white noise" type CD on all night. Otherwise, love it.
