This is an average player. While it's reliable about 80% of the time, if you don't immediately program the CD player to the track you want, it shuts down and you need to restart it. Also skips at times, not what I'd expect from a new player. I am grateful that I can still buy a cassette player, though, as I am one of the dinosaurs that still has cassettes.

                  I order this for mom for Mother's Day. She got it quickly. Delivery of the radio was within 2-3 days of the order date. My mom loved it. What I especially loved was that a customer service agent called to confirm that it was an actual purchase I authorized. I will definitely order from the this website again. Thank you.

                      As stated earlier, the radio arrived sooner than expected and in good condition. I had a great deal of difficulty finding what I wanted. I was trying to replace a similar unit. Having all three functions and keeping it small was important. I am very happy with ABT and Sony. I will probably be ordering another as a gift for my sister.
