    I have a lot of old (VERY old! they go back decades!!) cassettes, that play just fine on this. And newer CD's, and they play OK too. I would recommend this to anyone - it replaces a bulky cassette deck and receiver/amplifier with a much smaller 'foot print'. I don't need super stereo sound, i just want to listen to... let's say... a 'Jeff Beck/ Truth' cassette ... that is 40 Y.O.And also Edgar Winter: It's a '2 for one thing' = "Entrance... and White Trash"('Entrance' is a totally brilliant piece of work.)But to get back to the point? This product works ... 5 stars in my book!

    This boombox is good, but the bass isn't as strong as I wanted, even with "bass boost" on. But for the price, others may like it just fine--good sound, nice features. (I was spoiled by my old Sony, bigger and costlier, which had great bass.) I ended up returning it. B&H's return process was by far the most responsive, organized and professional I've ever come across online! Return was a snap.

      This boombox is excellent. It reads cassettes and CD's - but the best part is that it also reads CD's that have MP3 files on it.

                  Was looking for a replacement of an old Philips boombox. This one is (much) smaller --- about the side of a loaf of bread --- but the sound is great. Mainly used in the kitchen to listen to the radio, CDs, and cassette tapes. All work great. FM reception is superb, even without the external antenna extended (WNYC;I'm about 30 miles north of their transmitter). Very pleased, and a very good value for the money.

                              Use to record programs to listen to at a later time, then re-record programs next day. I do not care for digital programming, difficult to use at night especially. Waste too much time trying to find the right button. I use radios a lot, as I do not watch much TV. So I need more user-friendly radios, not so confusing. I cannot get this radio to record on tape.

                                  Among other things, I use it to transfer material on audiocassettes to CDs and to record radio programs on audiocassettes.

                                      It is not overly big and it does just what I need for my sleep time music.

                                        Primarily I bot the boombox as it is battery powered and we have had many power outages here in the forest. It offered multiple media access and nice performance in a nice format and for a very good price.

                                          Comments about Sony CFD-S50BLK Portable CD Boombox:

                                          This boombox is good, but the bass isn't as strong as I wanted, even with "bass boost" on. But for the price, others may like it just fine--good sound, nice features. (I was spoiled by my old Sony, bigger and costlier, which had great bass.) I ended up returning it. B&H's return process was by far the most responsive, organized and professional I've ever come across online! Return was a snap.
