I need it for an outdoor trip and I got friends that are bringing CD's.
I recently got back together with some friends from Junior High. When we were younger we made a bunch of recordings/mix tapes. I thought it would be fun to have something that we could play tapes on. I shopped around for a little while and found this from Super Sonic. It is nice for a couple of reasons. The price was really reasonable and the sound quality was acceptable. You can play tapes, CDs, and it even has a USB interface. I found this boom box to be very portable(Can run in Batteries) and functional. My only complaint was the FM/AM radio wasn't very good. Maybe I am just in a bad area for reception. I bought it for one night, but it know sits on my boat and gets a ton of use. It is worth a look.
I have this one and I think its simple , easy to use and sounds great to me. No Complaints. I take it on picnics and the family sit there and argue about who's CD gets to be played. lol
Will run on batteries for your outdoor trip. You can also connect an iPod to it. Pretty nice speakers. It is a bit weighty, and heavy especially when running on batteries, but that's really only the downside. It really does sound great.
If you are on a super tight budget, this might do the trick. You can run on batteries with this one as well. No iPod option. Sound is not bad.
We took this on our spring break trip last year. It is great to take on the beach or out on the boat. I think it has all the features you are looking for. Everything from a tape player to an FM radio. You can't beat the price and the sound quality is pretty decent for its size. Of course there are some things that could be improved(Handle broke off), but when you are going on a trip you want something that can get broken and not set you back too much. It serves its purpose well.
Bought this CD Boombox for my daughter because she loves music but we also take it with us when we go camping or out on the boat. It has surprisingly good sound for such an inexpensive boombox. Everything is very easy to use and see, even my 5 year old can do it. The only bummer that I can see is that it doesn't have a headphone jack, which is sometimes nice when you need some quiet, but other wise it was a great purchase.
I bought this because most of the reviews were great and I heard from friends that this was a better bet then some of the competitors. I love this mostly because me and my girl get together and as soon they see this we start singing "Super Sonic" lol its so fun!! It works very well, I have never had a problem with this other then some radio reception but that might be the area.
This works best. I was looking for one also and learned that the Coby brand skips alot and the antenna had fallen off a few times, I dont know, not one I'd recommend buying but I did choose this and it s works great, sounds it good, no skipping CD's, no complaints.
This radio is the best because it has all CD player/Radio/MP3 player and it will play music or audio from a USB and or SD/MMC card. I don't know any radios like this one. The sound is great although I cant totally blast it, it's still pretty loud.
