This system is great. I have larger systems in use but wanted a "system" that I could move easily that also sounded decent. Tried an RCA and a memorex only to be turned off buy lose cases or thin sound. The Sony CFD-S05 is different. It is solid and has respectable specifications for the price. The amplifier circuit is robust for a boombox, just don't expect the room to vibrate. Thats not what this is for. It is a nice system and I bought a couple more and wrapped the boxes with plastic wrap and stowed them away in the basement. I don't want a system with a "dock" for any particular brand of MP3/4 players and these systems are getting scarce so there you go !

I purchased this boombox to play cassette tapes while on a long road trip. The battery connections did not work when the car was in motion. Perhaps the connection is so light that the slight vibration produced by the car moving caused the battery connection to fail. I had to buy an AC inverter to plug into my 12 volt adaptor or cigarette lighter in order to use the boombox while on the road. The boombox played all right when connected to the inverter.

Somewhat disappointed

By 

from Connecticut

Comments about Sony Boombox S05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player:

I owned the previous version of this product for a number of years. I really liked the bass response. The new version is lacking in that respect. I do like the audio in jack for making cassettes from my computer.

Best looking model

By 

from Chicago, USA

Comments about Sony Boombox S05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player:

I wish this model is made again with capabilities to play MP3 and also have a USB input to play music from phones or tablets, not just limiting to Iphone. The newer models look like neutral charcoal blocks.

We use these in the classrooms so they get a lot of use. Our budget is tight so the quality (they last well) and the price fit our needs.

Comments about Sony Boombox S05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player:

If you rely on audiobooks for relaxation & entertainment and as I have a library of audiobooks on tape in addition to desire to listen to new releases on CDs this machine is the perfect solution. It is inexpensive & as it carries the Sony brand, is reliable and cost effective.

OUR LAST SONY? PROBABLY, BUT THAT'S A GOOD THING!

By 

from Birmingham, AL

Comments about Sony Boombox S05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player:

This replaced a vintage Sony boombox that lasted at least 25 years (we can't remember exactly when we bought it. That thing was taken everywhere, often exposed to the elements, even occasionally banged around a bit. Where else would we go for a new one than to Sony? Yes, it's smaller and doesn't have the bass of the older model; but that's fine. It takes up less space on our bedside table, where it will permanently reside and where we're not interested in a big, boomy sound. Based upon our previous experience and the gentler life this one will lead, we expect it to outlast the other one and, likely, us as well.

A lot of features in a small package

By 

from Springfield, MA

Comments about Sony Boombox S05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player:

Needed a replacement of my 19yo radio, it's antenna broke off and couldn't fix it. Wanted cassette and CD player, AM/FM was an added bonus. AM/FM, you can preset 20 FM and 10 AM stations. Has a feature that it will auto-scan for stations, then save them. Very happy with purchase.

    Comments about Sony Boombox S05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player:

    I now own two of these Sony boomboxes. The buttons are easy to use, it's hard to find a player that still plays tapes (I have some Spanish tapes that I still listen to), the CD player saves the track where I last stopped the CD, even if the player has been turned off. I wish it would save the actual place in the track, but this feature is still so much better than most players.
    These players are powerful enough to pick up the local radio stations as well.
    Overall, I've very happy with both of them.
