Meet the Sony SRF-18 Portable AM/FM Radio: an affordable way to listen to AM/FM radio, portable music devices or record your favorite radio shows. And not just around the house; you can take it pretty much anywhere because it's light (just under 2 pounds) and compact for easy portability. The SRF-18 has two built-in speakers with amplification, so you can benefit from local programming on the radio. Equipped with an audio input, the radio allows you to plug in devices like a smartphone, tablet, MP3 player, cassette deck or turntable. Or, use the audio output to connect a recording device and record programs to listen to later. And keeping the SRF-18 going is as easy as putting in two AA batteries -- load them in and get ready to rock!

          Comments about Sony SRF-18 Portable AM/FM Radio:

          I purchased this because of the "great sound" reported by many purchasers on the internet.

          If you like tinny, distorted sound, then this is the radio for you. I was very disappointed.

          This radio does have decent build quality and the selectivity and sensitivity are good but the sound quality puts it into "cheap radio" territory.

          Too bad because if Sony would just have put in some decent speakers, it would be a very good radio.

            Comments about Sony SRF-18 Portable AM/FM Radio:

            I enjoy using this radio outside either on the beach or just sitting out in the yard. I listen to my favorite talk shows and listen to many types of music. It has a nice tone and plenty of volume. I only wish it had a bass control for more rich sounds. Can't be beat for the price and size.
