The Sony ZS-S3IP has a built-in dock for your iPhone or iPod, which will even charge as it plays so you can take it along when you leave the house at full capacity. Listening options include CD-R/RW discs, FM/AM radio and of course any audio devices you have with an audio output like a smartphone or tablet.
This is equipped with stereo speakers housed in a bass-reflex design to provide you with a complete, enjoyable listening experience. The unit also features bass boost circuitry to enhance low-frequency performance from all your selections. Conveniences include 30 AM/FM presets and an intuitive remote control so you can command your sound from across the room. Or, you can load it up with batteries and take it on-the-go.

Got it for Christmas, and I was very thankful for receiving it. The remote is helpful, epically for a person who likes to listen to the radio in the shower. I use the remote to change stations in case of commercials, while in the shower. The remote is "Water Resistance," but I wouldn't recommend putting in/near any water source.
I compare this unit to a nearly 30 year old stereo portable from GE model 3-6023A [stereo cassette player, see photo] which unfortunately has to be scrapped due to a defective display. However, this old GE unit outperformed the Sony unit in sound and radio reception by a long shot. Almost all my electronics are from Sony [Vaio laptop, Bravia TV, Blue-ray player, Cybershot camera]. This boom box is by far the worst piece of equipment I ever bought from Sony.
