            Comments about Sony CFD-S50BLK Portable CD Boombox:

            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!

                            I listen to the CFD-S50 in my bedroom to relax in the evening or getting started in the morning. This Boombox is easy to operate, has a good sound plus I can play my cassette tapes on it which is really great. The FM/AM radio is clear. Overall a solid buy for $. The service was very good, box pack without any damage to it, quick delivery. I will shop with B&H again. Thank you

                              This box has more features and quality than others i tested at the same price. Overall, the sound is very good, BUT even with the Mega Bass selected there isn't much bass.
