      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 Sony product did not live up to the Sony engineering performance I had come to expect over many years of owning Sony products. I was hoping for sensitive FM receiver performance, but it is only slightly above average at best. When the Automatic Frequency Control activates a moment after tuning in an FM station, it reduces the sensitivity of the radio to the point where it could lose a weaker station, such as NPR 45 miles from its source. You can lose a weak station just by trying to adjust the antenna for a better signal. To get the station back, you need to tune the frequency up or down a little and then back to the station you want, again I believe due to the AFC activating. Sound quality is also not what I expected. With the bass boost switch on, it sounds like even the treble and mid frequencies are lowered, not just the bass frequencies accentuated, resulting in a disappointing hollow sound. With the bass boost off, the sound is clear, but somewhat thin, as expected from small speakers. All in all, though, this boom-box is a keeper, because I haven't found anything better in the marketplace in this size package at any price with CD and cassette players built-in. If you are looking for a super radio, similar to the performance of a good heterodyne DX receiver, this is not it. I cannot comment on durability, since I purchased the product only a few weeks ago for my wife.

                          I don't have a fancy audio system but I do have lots of wonderful classical music CDs. I didn't want to buy anything expensive but did want some good quality. Have two other boomboxes at home that are worthless. This little box did the job! Lovely sound in my living room, just what I wanted. Also, it doesn't take up room. Wish the speakers weren't attached but for the money and the quality, this was a good buy!

                            I bought this for my kitchen; it's small and compact, doestn't need much counter space. Both radio and CD player work well, and the sound is fine for what it is. No down-side that I can see. I don't expect to use it with batteries, though in case of power failure, it's good to have the option. I will order another for my office.

                                This PORTABLE cd, tape, and am-fm boombox is exactly what I was looking for! Small enough to take anywhere, small price for a great sound so I love listening to anything and everything on it--love the Sony brand as well. You can't go wrong with this machine--PERFECT FOR ECERYTHING!!

                                  I use this player to play music in my teatment room for my patients. It is easy to use and has the features I want, the only thing I miss is a simple key for repetition of a track.

                                    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!
