It is good to see that cassette players are still available. I bought specifically because this may not be the case for much longer
The engineering and design of this player seems quite good. Excellent FM reception. The antenna did not seem flimsy to me as someone else noted.
I play a cassette with no issues; FF, Rewind, and Play all functioned well. It seems like a very decent cassette player. A played a standard CD (Sibelius Finlandia) and it sounded very good. Sony makes nice sounding units. The first MP3 disk I tried could not be read, but I suspect that is because of the sampling rate that I used for the files. Standard mp3 files should work with no issues. The manual also describes the folder format required to play these files. Please leave a followup comment if you have successfully tried playing mp3 files.
The plastic housing does feel cheap but it is finished well and looks good. The boombox is also very light which could be a...
Update (6/14/16): As time progresses, perception of unit has favorably improved. CD Player operates satisfactorily, AM/FM reception if fine (without telescoping antenna). And, good quality tapes provide remarkable fidelity...-:) --- Cassette Rewind button worked well, was indispensable winding back dozens of old tapes. Thus far, a number of them play 'well.' Not surprisingly, quality of audio is OK. In contrast to naysayers, unit intended for portability not fidelity. --- Purchased system to play large number of cassette tapes that languished for years. (arrived perfectly packed with other items - four CDs, in alphabetical order!) However, reading Operating Instructions, under 'Playing a Tape,' regrettably, it stated, "Use Type I (normal) tapes only. Type II (high position), Type III (ferro-chrome) and Type IV (metal) tapes are not supported."
This is the newer version of the CFD S-50. I own both the CFD S-50 and this (CFD S-70). I did a quick side by side comparison of both. The S-70 is smaller and seems to have a little better sound. The CFD S-50 has function buttons for CD and Tape the S-70 does not, I just hit the play button on the S-70 for CD and that function came up, the same with the tape. Both have a function button for Radio AM/FM, I don't use the radio so I haven't used the preset station function on either player. They have some minor cosmetic differences. In my opinion it's a toss up as to which one is the better player, they're both Sony so the quality should be OK (we'll see).
