        I was looking for a device that can work with 110/220 VAC and good sound quality. This achieved both. It comes with European plug and a US plug converter. The sound quality is amazing. Didn't try radio or tape player

          Comments about Panasonic RX-D55 CD Radio Cassette Recorder:

          The sound is good. I use it to accompaniment music from CD's and through the music port for my mp3 player when I practice (trumpet). I need good volume without feeling like I am going to damage the speakers and I think it does a good job for me. I have not tried the USB port.

          I was really impressed with the remote control. I have never seen a remote control that is built sturdier.

          When I received my boombox, the cassette door was broken and stayed open. B&H replaced it right away.

          I would recommend the boom box and using B&H as the store. They were the same price as the big online retailer.

            Product is a great performer. With some tinkering of the controls a great sounding system can produce remarkable audio. The remote is limited in some circumstances, but can handle the majority of tasks. It was a little beefier than I expected, but that's good in a piece of electronic equipment.

                Hope it last longer than my 3 broken Sony MP3Boomboxes.Unlike the Sony's there is no sleep swich on the unit (only on the remote), When sleep switch is used the backlight stays on. Does not remember the CD position when turned off (starts from the 1st selection when turned back on). Will not fast forward through MP3 files. The USB works great and remembers the position when turned off. I will end up transfering my MP3's to a memory stick. AM radio does not pull in stationsThe only unit I could find with a bass and treble control. Has great sound.

                  Comments about Panasonic RX-D55 CD Radio Cassette Recorder:

                  This Panasonic CD/tape player and radio is apparently not so popular to Americans since the power supply is European. But it is the perfect all-in-one home audio system for those who don't want to pay top dollar for, or clutter their home with, separate speakers. The speakers on this "boombox" are excellent; the sound quality is as good as you'll get without a surround-sound home entertainment system. It is of the same quality as those older Sony boomboxes that are no longer made. (The few Sony boomboxes still made are meant primarily to be portable, and the sound quality is inferior.) Get this Panasonic system while it is still available!

                  I use this product for playing CDs and AM radio. Good CD performance but fair to poor radio performance due to some distortion.
