Summary: Thanks to all of you for your detailed comments I found an easy way to repair the boom box. Many of you said that if you pushed down on the radio hard it would play so I tried it and I too had the same problem, but since it is impossible to stand all day holding the radio and get anything else done...
Summary: The boom box is exactly what I wanted, However the radio unit will not maintain contact with boom box contacts. If I hold the radio unit down it does play very well. The moment I take my hand away it stops playing. Do you have any suggestions?
Summary: Very disappointed. Boom box does not "lock in" receiver well at all. Continually coming loose, losing power and signal. When it works it is great. But it only lasts a short period. Can not recommend.
Summary: My wife bought this unit for me for Christmas. It lasted about 4 months, contact with the company is impossible eventhough there is a supposed warranty. I hope this company goes out of business just for it's lack of customer satisfaction.
Summary: MY RATING SHOULD ACTUALLY NOT INCLUDE ANY STARS. VERY VERY VERY POOR PRODUCT. THE PROBLEM IS WHEN YOU TRY TO USE THE RECEIVER IN THIS XACT XS034 BOOMBOX IT STOPS PLAYING SHORTLY AFTER YOU PLACE IT IN THE BOOMBOX.
Summary: First, I was very dissapointed because the way the boombox description was worded, I thought there would be a radio receiver included. Second, it is cheap plastic. Third, when I called the seller, they did not have the radio to go with it.
Summary: This is the only Boombox that goes with my radio. I bought one unit and soon after I started to use it the radio no longer would stay powered in the cradle. I noticed that because of the design of the unit this could be a design flaw. I also thought I could be wrong.
Summary: I love satellite radio but I would be cautious about buying an Xact unit. Xact products carry a 12 month warranty. At exactly 13 months the unit stopped working. Xact customer service informed me they were no longer responsible for the unit.
Summary: This boombox is cool. The sound is very good and everything plugs right in. High gloss black plastic gives it a hi-tech look. This is a great way to take your XAct receiver with you. "After all, ya gotta hear what Howard is going to say next." You can't go wrong !!! Enjoy.
