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.
