The sound quality isn't as good as I expected, it's rather tiny even when using the "Mega Bass". It recommends removing the batteries when using the power cord which is a pain to remember. If you don't and leave the power accidently on (little red led) without anything playing, the batteries will drain overnight. The button usage seems to confuse the player, it takes too long for it to read info on a commercially made CD before it will list anything or play anything. I'm a little underwhelmed by this product. We have a number of Sony products and this one doesn't live up to the high standards of the others. Of course the price is attractive and the size is good, and it looks nice too, but the sound quality could be a lot better.

      Comments about Sony Black CD Radio Cassette Recorder Boombox:

      I got this for my two young children. I didn't want them to have to use my phone to listen to music and I hate dealing with up/downloading and computer glitches. So I got them this CD player so they can listen to the CD's whenever they want to. I like the not-too-big and not-bulky design as well. We can also listen to my old cassette tapes!

                I use it at home. So far, it's really good. Wish it was larger like previous model for richer and better sound. Haven't tested yet if it can record CD's onto cassette tapes like old model could.

                It came promptly in excellent condition. Haven't had to call customer service.

                  This unit does alot in a compact size. I've only played CD's so far, and the sound is a bit 'fuzzy', not as clear as I'd like. For the price, it does what it was intended for.
