Good for the office

Janice, Amazon

  • Summary: I use this radio in my office at work. It has a digital tuner which makes it easier to find radio stations. It also plays MP3's that I burned as well as CD's with no problem. I would recommend this to a friend.

I love mine too!

  • Summary: I have had it for over two years, and I use it nearly every day. I'm sorry for the folks that miss the headphone jack, but having audio-in instead means I can play my mp3 player through it. That's how I use it much of the time. It plays audio CD's great, and I use the radio too.

I love mine!

  • Summary: I guess mine is some sort of anomaly compared to the other reviews I have read here. My RCD159 works great and I love it! I bought it to put in my office and it does a good job of pulling in radio stations despite the large amount of metal I work around (no windows).

GREAT CD & MP3 player

R. George, Amazon
14 May 2009
  • Summary: I had an earlier version of this unit that had a headphone output and remote control. This newer version does not have those but does have a INPUT plug so you and use other devices (such as IPOD, etc) which is a nice addition.

Great Unit With One Flaw

  • Summary: This Boombox, contrary to what other reviews will tell you, has a great Sound. It has 4 EQ Presets: Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classic, and of course the default, Flat; plus bass boost. It has no distortion at top volume.

Not the best.. but of course you know that already based on the price

Brinman, Amazon

  • Summary: This had a constant humming noise when playing CDs. It did play MP3s (did, because we've since thrown it away) but not very well.

It's good

R. Culp, Amazon
10 January 2008
  • Summary: I use this in my garage with mp3 cd's. It's not the greatest player, but I didn't expect it to be. For the price it works great. If you want better sound spend more money.

Great Value

Celene, Amazon

  • Summary: With so many MP3's out there its hard to find a good quality boom box that will actually play CD's. This one does the trick. Excellent sound, with 4 different settings, and the design is very nice too.

Great for the bux - whiners go elsewhere...

Negril Jerry, Amazon
6 November 2007
  • Summary: Waaaa waaaa waaaaa..... I bought a boom box for under $50, and I got ripped off! It has NO REMOTE, can you believe it? And they converted the headphone jack into an input for my mp3 player, which of course I need ten times more than I'll ever need a headphone jack but I DEMAND IT ALL!

No better than a clock radio

Serhiy Leontsev, Amazon
28 July 2007
  • Summary: The things I noticed right away when I turned the unit on: - Sound quality is very poor due to the small speakers. There is no basses at all, the x-bass button makes almost no difference. - Radio reception is weak.
