I have received this CD player yesterday. It's really good. So far I have tried the CD player not the cassette and so far it's nice. The remote is very handy and helpful, however it doesn't have all the buttons on the CD player itself, but it's truly sufficient. The only concern, the speaker rattles with high volume with some songs, also there is sometimes noise comes from CD itself when it's being played.
Pros - i like the CD player. For what I paid the sound is fairly clear and I like the portability of the product.
Cons - the cassette player ... not so pleased with this part of the unit which is my main reason for purchasing it. The cassette door gets jammed often which takes a while to open it. The cassettes play at a slow speed which creates a warp in the sound of the music I am playing. Each cassette played reflects some degree of this malfunction.
Disappointed that Canada Post failed to deliver and I had to go downtown to pick it up. Much prefer FedEx or UPS for service After all that trouble, the remote has failed, and the machine itself has now totally failed. So, I am completely dissatisfied with this purchase, and would not recommend it. This is the first purchase with which I have ever been dissatisfied.
When I first turned on the radio I was extremely impressed! Sounds very good...really fills the room. It is awesome that it has it's own remote. My boyfriend was also amazed...VERY Sony quality! I highly recommend this product!
