Everything in the product suited me, the price is generally perfect.

In general, I liked the radio tape recorder, these days it is no longer necessary to choose. She is almost the only one left of this class. You can take it with you to nature, to the country. The design evokes positive emotions. My cat especially liked it. I recommend to buy.

Pros
  • Compact size, not easily soiled plastic, good sound, there is a cassette deck, for which I bought it. A bunch of cassettes were kept in a closet for ten years, now there is an opportunity to listen to them, to nostalgic. After all, each cassette is a story. Over the past years, the quality of the recording on them has been preserved, which was a pleasant surprise.
Cons
  • No remote control, no hitchhiking when rewinding cassettes, no backlight screen, rather weak low frequencies, the absence of a window on the cassette deck cover to view the amount of remaining tape.

The best thing for the money, I'm glad I chose this option.

You can listen to magnetic cassettes Cd ๐Ÿ’ฟ disk r-rw mp3 - for lovers of "nostalgia" that's it) ๐Ÿ˜Ž The radio is good and the sound is clear. There is a battery compartment - very light - you can take it anywhere with you The power cord is also included

Pros
  • Everything works well and the sound is great.
Cons
  • Not revealed - the radio tape recorder itself is gorgeous There are no instructions in 2022 (

A little bit not what I expected, generally fine.

I was looking for a relatively inexpensive radio with a cassette mechanism (basic requirement) for an elderly person. I found only 3 models with a cassette mechanism, they are no longer produced. I chose the average value. Despite the shortcomings, I donโ€™t regret buying it, because. there are no other options on the market anymore (do not take second-hand ones).

Pros
  • There are no particularly positive features. The main requirement was to find at least some device with a cassette player and mechanical control. A CD player was not needed. Formally everything works. Cassettes play, hitchhiking works (except for rewind). The average sound range is not distorted. The device is lightweight. The case is matte, not easily soiled, the seams do not creak. Production date - December 2022.
Cons
  • If you evaluate it as a music lover with great experience - the sound is like from an analog telephone, maybe a little better. You wonโ€™t hear any 80-10,000 Hz from the cassette player (according to the passport), at most - 250-7000 Hz (along the path through the headphones itโ€™s a little better - 100-7000 Hz). There are no tone controls, only the "Mega-bass" switch, No built-in microphone for sound recording. CD did not evaluate as superfluous. AM catches badly (in Hong Kong time and in Hong Kong Region I caught 1.5 stations and those non-2022 ones), FM - tolerably, one might say not bad. The record and playback keys are narrow, they are located unsuccessfully next to each other, sometimes the finger touches both keys and you can accidentally overwrite the recording. The markings on the cassette keys are hard to see (not painted). The price of 5300r ($100) is not justified. But in fact it is a rarity. About 20-30 years ago, when there was a large and high-quality choice, I would never have bought such a device, for any money. But now the situation is different, cassettes are almost never produced.

A nice option for the money, one of the best deals.

A good model for the kitchen, indispensable - if you need a cassette deck, perfect for an unassuming user. Some pros: Nice design, non-staining plastic. Includes cassette deck, CD player, radio and device input. There is a headphone output. Loud sound for radio. Good reliable radio reception even at long distances. Powered by both mains and batteries (however, when connecting to a power outlet, you will have to remove the batteries). Got cons: The mechanisms are somewhat "clumsily" executedโ€ฆ

Not the best quality, but generally not bad.

I rarely listen to music, but there are many live audio cassettes left. I wanted to keep the opportunity to listen to them . As a result. I had a cassette tape recorder. The cassettes worked, but the CD died. Decided to buy a new one while it's on sale. The new cassette deck died. I now have two radios: one works with cassettes, and the other works with CDs. It's easier to spit and take everything to the trash.

Pros
  • It's just a cassette deck.
Cons
  • Not good quality. Button control for everything, including volume. After a year and a half of extremely rare use, the cassette deck died. Mechanical problems - something rubs and from this it makes a nasty sound and "pulls" the film. I disassembled it - itโ€™s impossible to get to the place of breakdown - you need to drill out the rivets, in short, the mechanism is disposable.

A very high-quality product, I take it not for the first time.

Pretty good for a modern tape recorder. Especially good for those who want to get a cassette recorder and not buy old versions, where some kind of repair is likely to be required. I wanted to order the same one for one person, but for some reason it is no longer on the Sony website. And it is for the 2022. Sony's Japanese site has them, and by the way, they have a small window in the cover of the cassette deck, which is clearly missing in this one. Might have to order from there.

Pros
  • Brand new branded cassette. The sound is good, but you need to carefully check the azimuth setting, in batches there may be completely untuned, then the cassettes will have a very "rotten" sound. And so with a tuned azimuth, if you connect external large speakers, the sound is very good. Unless the own noise of the tape recorder is noticeable quite strongly. Recording on a cassette is of course the simplest, only a type 1 tape with basic recording level settings.
Cons
  • The speed of the LPM is slightly overestimated, when listening to a cassette for 30 minutes, the difference with the nominal comes to about 30 seconds. About six months later, the CD player stopped working for no reason, I donโ€™t use it at all, it just worked on the first day, after a long time I tried to turn it on, the discs donโ€™t spin.

The quality of this product is as expected

I use this boombox for my fitness classes. The sound quality is very good for the size of the device and it is easy to use. My only suggestion is that I would have preferred a longer connection cable. Very compact and easy to transport system.

Pros
  • CD-R/RW and MP3-CD playback with shuffle, program functions and sleep timer
Cons
  • ---

Designed for landfill use

I made the mistake of buying several of these. All of them stopped working from a few months to a little over a year. The problems range from skipping discs to the device not reading discs at all. When the warranty period has expired, Sony will provide you with a workshop number where the cost of return shipping is higher than the cost of the device itself (and this excludes the cost of repairs). Sony used to be good. Now they just produce cheap junk that is destined to break down and beโ€ฆ

Pros
  • 2 x 1.7W RMS full range stereo output with MEGA BASS; AM/FM digital tuner with 30 preset stations
Cons
  • Available in white only
