    I couldn't believe you could get Sony so complete for this price, then I l look at the back ID plate and it says "Made in China". I run it on the supplied AC cord, but you can also power with 6 C batteries. Most boomboxes today come with a CD player only. This has a cassette player/recorder also. I have a lot of tapes I can play now! No auto-reverse. This is the most boombox I could find out there at this price. This has a digital tuner and setting the presets is the hardest thing. I did a lot of checking before I bought this one, and so far I'm happy with my choice. It also has free shipping and no tax. That is the reason I bought it at abt.com. If your looking for a unit that does it all, for this price, I don't think you can beat this deal.

    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.

      Comments about Sony Black CD Radio Cassette Recorder Boombox:

      I bought this boombox as a gift for my wife. She loves music and plays several instruments. She loves the sound and convenience of this boombox. She uses it everyday to listen to CDs and the radio. She paired it with her AT&T Jive headphones and says the sound is amazing. This was a great gift at a great price from Abt.
