Summary: Well, it's better than a string and two dixie cups but rich detailed sound? Not even close. It gives everything a kind of scratchy, other room quality. Had one of these before, made in China too but it sounded better. Ahh, where are the Japanese made Sony products? A quality product for those of us who hate MP3 sound and still carry around CDs? You know, the wanna be audiophile? Don't even bother with the Sony headphones.
Summary: This player was bought by me when I was desperate for a personal CD player when I was taking a road-trip to California. *Sound Quality* The sound quality on the D-FJ200 is amazing, it is crystal clear, and it sounds like the person is right next to you singing. *FM/AM Radio* The radio on this pers. player is pretty good, with some stations coming in excellent and some coming in unlegible. *TV* The TV band on this is excellent.
Summary: Sony's latest portable CD/AM/FM/TV/WB walkman is a nice player. The sound on the unit is very good, tough not quite as good as Panasonic's. It has 2 equalizers, while may CD players out today have 3. The design is below average. The buttons are poorly placed, and button are hard to find and memorize. The CD player is very slim, which is a plus. Also, the CD player is sturdy and has good construction, as most Sony products.
Summary: I've had this product for months now. I have to tell you, I've had no problems with this CD player. And it really withstands all the drops I've made to it. I dropped this accidently countless times and it is still a fantastic product. I recommend it.
Summary: Previous to this CD Player, I had the Sony D-FJ61, which included a line out for use in the car if you have only a cassette player. I have the Sony cassette adapter for CD Player, but with the D-FJ200, there is unfortunately no line out slot to attach the adapter to. The CD player itself plays fine, but I'm returning it for lack of a line out.
Summary: Some of the reviews here sound like they were churned out by David Manning-like frauds. Anyway, this is Sony's best cd walkman in awhile. Their previous premium model, the D-FJ787 was a piece of junk because the tuning and playback controls could only be accessed using an external, wired remote control you had to plug your headphones into to listen - resulting in a MESS of wires.
Summary: ARGH! Silly me for not reading the fine print. I sort of assumed that all CD players of this price range would be MP3 compatible. NOT! Why the heck anybody would make a CD player that isn't MP3 compatible in this day and age is beyond me. The sound quality and construction of this thing are pretty good, better than the Panasonic equivalent. Hence two stars instead of one. But the Panasonic plays MP3s! Have not been able to get much radio reception out of this thing.
Summary: With the provided headphones, radio reception is poor. With a $50 aftermarket set of headphones, its pretty good for strong stations. For weaker stations or those with nearby competition, you have to find the right place to listen. Volume is good. Controls are awful, especially for setting the preset radio stations. Instructions are very poor.
Summary: I have been a customer of Sony for years now and they have not let me down. I bought this cd player to replace my old one. Mind you the old one is still kicking. I just banged it up a bit and needed a replacement. The reception is great,there's no skipping,and everything works wonderfully. It has great bass boost. Overall,I'm sticking with Sony . They are an A+ company and they make excellent products. Kudos to you Sony!!!
