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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
