bought for my daughter for her kid CD's and books on CD. Functions well, however is quite light so to push the buttons you have to hold on to it or it just slides away and I don't want it to scratch the surface it sits on. We have only used it plugged in so maybe adding batteries would help this issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Portable CD boom Box with Cassette Player Jan. 16 2014
Verified Purchase
I ordered this portable boom box as I recently bought eighteen Christmas CDs as well as fifteen non-Christmas CDs and I needed something to play them on. Now the radio works beautifully and the music sounds great as does the music played on the cassette player. However, when I try to play a CD, the turn table or whatever just won't spin so I've yet to hear any of the thirty-three new CDs that I've recently purchased.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weird CD Player April 19 2010
By H. Rettop - Published on Amazon.com
I found this to be a great little unit in many ways (good sound, good ease of usage, saves settings with AA batteries installed) - but - as other reviewers have mentioned - the CD player is flawed. If you use the repeat or shuffle mode, CD's fade into the intro - cutting off a couple of seconds of the song. It's almost as though some idiot software programmer at RCA thought it would be hip to slide into the song by fading up. The truth of the matter is - it's not. It's annoying and distracting.

Also, when I finally found a number for RCA (took a good 20 minutes) and got an agent on the phone - she was crabby and couldn't be bothered with me. The woman actually hung up on me (and I was very polite, by the way). Is RCA simply unaware of how their products play? Do they use their own products? Does RCA take any interest in how they appear to their customers via their agents and feedback channels??

Too bad. RCA used to be state of the art. Now, it's just mediocre - and flailing.

1.0 out of 5 stars CD problem Aug. 4 2009
By Mockbroker - Published on Amazon.com
Pros: I like the controls, not hard to figure out. The sound is about as good as I expected, it sounds better when you are several feet away.
Cons: When you play a CD, each song is silent until two seconds in. It actually doesn't even show the zero or the one, it just starts at 00:02. This is extremely disappointing to me, and I'm going to return it.

4.0 out of 5 stars sounds good for a small device Aug. 11 2011
By Timbo - Published on Amazon.com
Very happy with the RCA boombox. We were concerned about sound quality with other devices we looked at, and we are glad we picked this one. Multi-eq settings nice for such a small player.

The tape player and aux are very clear, the CD player works well, too. The FM antenna is apparently internal; we were concerned when we first opened the box up, but it tuned in the stations without a problem. A little static on a weak college station nearby, but overall good.

The carrying handle could be better. When you pick the device up without batteries in it, the balance tips the device forward, and the handle does not have much clearance, so your fingers get a squeeze. Batteries in it will probably balance this out, but more clearance would have been better on the handle, anyway. Still feels 'tight'.

Overall, bery happy. If it lasts like other RCA things should, (I have a very old radio in the dining room with tubes in it), we should be in great shape.

2.0 out of 5 stars CD player won't work.... April 17 2010
By Sophie Marcooper - Published on Amazon.com
We got this specifically to play CD for my son.....after a month or so, the cd player stopped working....sometimes it registers no cd, sometimes it won't play the first song on the cd, sometimes it'll play about 30 seconds of a song and just freeze. This is the second junky cd player I've bought in the last year...other was a sylvania, blue from Big Lots.....they just don't make quality like they used to!!! We have a Sony that is almost 15 years old and still works...skips occasionally, and this one was to replace a different RCA that was over 10 years old....crazy. Guess you really have to spend more for quality these days..

2.0 out of 5 stars don't buy it Jan. 30 2010
By aunt lottie - Published on Amazon.com
the play button is nearly impossible to push, but if you do manage to get it pushed down, the stop/eject button will not pop it up again (without brute force). it did this since day one. the cheap antenna broke within the first couple months. you need two hands to push the cd player back in. the button you push to switch from radio to cd to audio to cassette will switch when it wants to. the power button also has an attitude but not as much as the function button. and last but not least... the radio will save the station settings... until you unplug or turn off the player. i thought the sound quality was ok for the price. that's the only nice thing i have to say.
