Not a bad purchase


from Colorado Springs, CO

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.

Regret purchase


from Kentucky

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.
