Summary: This little unit is extremely durable, has great sound (for it's size and form factor...), and is easy to pack. Very nice that it serves as a speaker system for my MP3 player, but I use it mainly to listen to classical music in different locales when I travel - it tunes in NPR stations extremely well. Dropped from various heights, traveled thousands of miles, looks and feels brand new.
Summary: One of the great things about FM radio is stereo, but it's hard to find a small radio that plays it. This radio has that and more. Audio out jack as well as stereo headphone jack, plus audio in to source from MP3 players, etc. Yes, the speakers are small, so don't expect a concert hall. I find them very adequate. Reception is excellent.
Summary: I was looking for stereo AM/FM portable radio and this Sony is the only one in the market with Stereo speakers. Speaker sound quality is very good if you compared it with other portable radios. Battery life is good. I have been using it with rechargeable batteries and it's still last long time. Line in port is useful for hooking up smart phones for louder sound.
Summary: Product Details were wrong. It requires two AA batteries, and they were not included. Also, the radio lacks a power cord to plug in the radio - so its a battery only setup. Had I known it did not have a power cord, I would have selected an alternate model.
Summary: A small radio built to go places. Durable and simple design, and easy to use, this product gets high marks. My only gripe would be that it doesn't plug into a wall, so no AC outlet. Gotta buy batteries for this little champ. All in all, I am happy!
