    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.

      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.

                the best thing about this product is its ability to play audio tapes of old time radio programs. I have three other versions of this machine and the tape player has quit working on each. hope this one is longer lasting. not much choice for tape players [cassette] anymore.

                  I purchased this in Jan 2014 and I'm very happy with it. I read other reviews,researched and ordered it. The sound is much better then I expected,I like the mega Bass button, the ease of use. My sterio system passed on from old age and I needed to buy something to play my cd's and cassetes. Right now I have "Kenny G" cd playing and sound is very good.
                  Its also a sleek design

                  I'm thankful this radio gets both AM and FM clearly. I was using two other radios: one for AM and one for FM! I also really like the preset buttons.

                  I continue to use cassette tapes because they're the only way I know of to record radio programs for later listening. Glad you still make radio/cassette player/recorders!!
