She began a search on the internet and in local stores for a compact system that would fit in her limited space that had CD, cassette, and radio, of course. Most of the systems that fit her needs were either cheap "boombox" units or huge, coffee table sized systems. We came across this Sony system on several websites. We learned that this was built for the overseas market primarily since it will run on 110 or 220 volts and has the European FM tuner band settings. Several internet dealers only sell the 220 volt version and make you buy a transformer to convert it to be used in the US at 110 volts.
When the system arrived, we set it up in a matter of minutes. The first thing we found was that it has an option to set it to run on the US FM frequency band. You simply have to follow the instruction manual and press a couple of buttons while powering it up. Once you do that, it is set to the US standards for FM.
The radio reception on both AM and FM is very good. There are a lot of preset memories for stations. The cassette player and CD player work great. The cassette has a neat door covering the control buttons when not in use!
The sound is great for small areas, like her bedroom where she uses the stereo. If you're looking for ear-shattering, bass-thumping music, this is not the stereo for you. If you are looking for a great stereo for the bedroom, office, den, etc. this is perfect.
If you are not ready to throw away all your cassette tapes, you should definitely look into this Sony system. By the way, if you do want to listen to your iPod or other MP3 player, there is a front panel audio input. So you really can have everything in one package!
I just feel that with today's technology, and at this price, this product should have better sound quality.
BUT I would like to warn other potential buyers that I was sold a gray market product, that is one that is only warranted in Canada - as I live in the US, if I have any problems during the warranty period I will have no recourse to Sony for help
The sound is very good. You can set sound effects for jazz, flat, rock or pop. On the radio, you can change from stereo to mono to reduce air noise. I live in an area with lots of valleys, so reception can be poor, but this unit did a good job.
The AM antenna can be positioned so it doesn't show (behind the entertainment console) without picking up interference, but I had to raise the FM wire antenna away from the entertainment console and tape it to the wall behind a nearby chair to avoid noise from the wires from the TV, etc., and to get better reception. The remote is easy to use. Overall I'm very happy with this mini sound system.
