      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.
