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. I do find I need to record flat-directory 80-file mp3 CD's tuned to its idiosyncrasies, but the media is cheap.
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). The CD player has also worked fine and I play alot of homemade CD's too. It does not have a tape deck thank goodness! Who plays cassette tapes in the 21st century??
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. Unit plays great, good volumne and has good sound, also plays MP3's even with folders on the disk.
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. The CD playback does NOT have a common issue of a noisy, hissy motor as some have previously stated. It is flawless mechanically, and has a superb AM/FM Receiver capable to tuning in even the weakest FM / AM Stations.
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! And the DISPLAY - all it shows is a track number! I demand to see pretty scrolling info, track name, kbs rate, even lyrics.
Summary: I bought one of these for my shop based on its small size, price, and features, primarily the digital tuner. I plugged the unit in and tuned in an FM station. The sound was good. I left to get a CD and when I returned the unit was dead. Return through Amazon was free, quick, and easy (easier than this review, which deletes if you forget something). I printed a return label and dropped the package at the post office (your carrier will also accept).
Summary: I bought one of these about two or three years ago and love it. It still works great and has a terrific sound for such an inexpensive and small unit. It has a built-in equalizer and power booster which gives you a nice selection of different effects, such as cranking up the base and just more volume without getting a tinny quality to the music. There are selections for pop, jazz, rock, classical, etc.
Summary: This is a nice little boombox. The design is very sleek. I have no complaints about the sound quality. You can jack up the volume pretty high without any sound distortions. The equalizer presets are quite satisfactory, and with the bass boost feature, the music comes through very rich and full--no hollowness to it, at least to my non-audiophile ears. One troublesome issue to point out is this boombox is tempermental in reading MP3 CDs that have folders on them.
