I have this boom box for quite some time now and I like it a lot. It has a digital FM/AM tuner, CD player and cassette deck. The sound is exceptional in my opinion as it is with any SONY sound product that I have bought. You can also take this boombox on the go by adding 6 D batteries in the back of the box. I wouldn’t recommend this boombox if you want to take it on the go however simply because there are so many other alternatives out there these days like an iPhone or an iPod or another MP3 player which have the same functionality as the boombox. The boombox is little on the heavy side in my opinion. It also has a headphone jack for private listening. I use this feature all the time when I’m at home. Another feature is the Bass Boost which is great. The most important feature I believe in this particular boom box is that you must set precepts of channels either in FM and AM or both. This can be done by simply scanning the channels utilizing the memory button and applying it by utilizing a number from 1 to 8 from numbers assigned in the cd player from the boom box. The CD player within the boom box is great and it plays regular CDs, CD-R and CD-RW formats. The cassette deck plays old tapes which I don‘t believe are utilized anymore. I will highly recommend this boom box to anyone out there who loves music or to listen to other radio broadcasts.
