Sony boom box
4 Star Review   By DebSR on Sony - Official Store - Oct 3, 2013   

good little machine for the money. It's a Sony so it is very reliable but the size of the speakers leaves something to be desired. I am using it to play music for the classes I teach and I have to turn it up very high to have the msuic and words understood. Otherwise, great so far. have had it about 2 weeks.

Solid performer but lacking in BASS
4 Star Review   By wonttake on Sony - Official Store - Sep 30, 2013   

nice radio, good pricing through Sony, speakers sound like tin cans. Having had prior Sony radios I thought everyone was exaggerating the lack of bass; they were not. Overall it is a quality built unit with good FM reception. I did not purchase for the CD or Cassette features, just to listen to the radio in my garage.

5 Star Review   By Radioman on Sony - Official Store - May 2, 2013   

I love my new stereo! The sound is very crisp and clear, it has decent bass, the build quality and sound is very good for only $50. I would definitely go out and buy another one in the future!

5 Star Review   By Consultant on Sony - Official Store - Jan 29, 2013   

We have SONY HD-TVs, Blu-ray/DVD players and an under cabinet kitchen AM/FM//CD player, count on SONY to provide a quality product and have not been disappointed. We have CDs and quite a few tapes and no longer had a way to play the tapes. The sound is good, mega boost is a plus and ollar for dollar this unit cannot be matched!

Plays Cassettes
5 Star Review   By RobtDDR on Sony - Official Store - Jan 22, 2013   

For those who still have cassette tapes this is a must purchase. Portability, AC/DC with built in transformer. I especially like the metal speaker grille, a nice touch.

Great Purchase
5 Star Review   By Shooter2012 on Sony - Official Store - May 4, 2012   

I reviewed many other brands of portable radios before purchasing this one and was not disappointed. The other brands at the price of the Sony do not have many of the features this has. I wanted specifically a FM radio, cassette player and cd player, the CFD-SO5 had everything and more. The sound quality is very good for a small compact portable radio. The reviewers who labeled the sound quality as a "Con" should remember what you paid for, if you want concert sound quality you have to pay for it, for what this radio was designed for the sound quality is excellent. Sony AM/FM, cassette-Corder, CD player for under $50 is a great buy.

Slightly disappointed
3 Star Review   By Passion4Music on Sony - Official Store - Feb 18, 2012   

I purchased this item last week with very high hopes of getting a good sound quality for not alot of $$. I have to say that I do love the way this was designed, a real space saver and am happy that those of us who still listen to cassettes haven't been forgotten. It's a very simple, basic cd player. I am happy with the product, but by reading the reviews, I thought maybe the sound quality may be a bit better than it is. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't sound bad, I just expected more from what i read. If you are really into your music, you should think twice before purchasing this item. However, if you want to just have something to play your music on that sounds okay, then you should purchase. Good for back ground music for office or store, keeping in mind the lower the volume the better it sounds. Too soon to tell how well it will hold up, I've only had it for a week. Altho I am happy with it, even tho I expected better sound, and I would reccomend this to a friend, but for me, I think I would probably send it back if shipping charges weren't so high and purchase the other one that is similiar for the few extra bucks.

So glad they still make them this way
5 Star Review   By Georgiana on Sony - Official Store - Jun 7, 2011   

I've always owned Sony boom boxes. Never had any other brand. They last a long, long time, and these days, it feels like it is impossible to find a simple radio/CD/cassette player without a bunch of gimmicks, and at a good price for this quality. This model has satisfied our expectations. I bought one originally for my mother who is in her 60s and still likes to listen to old cassettes, but then I ended up getting one for our kitchen just so I can listen to the radio and CDs. It suits our simple needs and is very sturdy and pleasing in design.

Nice unit !
5 Star Review   By flamesmarvin on Sony - Official Store - May 22, 2011   

This system is great. I have larger systems in use but wanted a "system" that I could move easily that also sounded decent. Tried an RCA and a memorex only to be turned off buy lose cases or thin sound. The Sony CFD-S05 is different. It is solid and has respectable specifications for the price. The amplifier circuit is robust for a boombox, just don't expect the room to vibrate. Thats not what this is for. It is a nice system and I bought a couple more and wrapped the boxes with plastic wrap and stowed them away in the basement. I don't want a system with a "dock" for any particular brand of MP3/4 players and these systems are getting scarce so there you go !

SONY CFD-S05 BOOMBOX REVIEW
5 Star Review   By Computerhobbyist on Sony - Official Store - Apr 4, 2011   

The Sony CFD-S05 CD Radio Cassette Recorder is an excellent Mega Bass portable radio for the nightstand by your bed to listen to the latest news, weather, and sports before retiring for the evening. It’s also ideal for anyone that likes to play selections from their cassette library or make custom mix tapes from their CD collection. The Sony portable stereo is the perfect addition for the boombox or radio enthusiast. With its excellent sound output, dual band digital FM/AM tuner, cassette player/recorder, CD player, program, shuffle, random CD playback modes, and CD-R/RW playback, this boombox would make a great addition for any home or outdoor activity. This unit sports an impressive features list including an LCD display, telescopic antenna for FM reception, built-in AM antenna, 30 FM/AM station presets, soft touch tape transport controls, CD syncro recording with cassette recorder, headphone jack, auxiliary input for MP3 player, two full range speakers, bass reflex sound system, carry handle, power button, volume controls, FM mode button, direct input source selection, and CD transport controls. The CFD-S05 stereo is complimented with sturdy build quality, excellent radio reception, and is lightweight. The Sony portable is powered by 6 C cell batteries or the unit can be powered by AC household current with the supplied, detachable AC power cord. However, the Sony CFD-S05 portable stereo does not come with a remote control. This radio is all about class and style with its intuitive design, easy operation, and warm natural sound tones that this Sony portable produces. Highly recommended.

I have had two of these units and I have not been able to preset the stations on the radio. It seems like the instructions are either poorly written or many of these units are deffective. Also, because it is very difficult to tune in stations, it is very
