So far it plays very good (only had for 1 month, so far) For price as well as sound, its a great buy. it plays MP3 and CD disks. speakers are detachable, so if you wanted to put bigger or different ones, you can. radio plays ok to, but I don't really use radios any more. station ajustment not to bad, better than most I've used in the past. ALSO has a remote UPDATE 01-30-11: AFTER 5 months of use, it sometimes stops playing cd's, turn it off and then on and it plays again. It does not like to be played for real long periods of time. I was playing it all night long with the replay feature and also all weekend, can no longer continue doing that as it will stop not long after first replay starts, but not always Still a decent product for money paid, still has great sound. I would buy this item again if the one I have quits working altogether. This unit is good for playing books on cd's or mp3's 5-5-11 unit still has great sound, only problem now is that...
This system is supposed to play MP3s. It does not! It also will not play "homemade" cds. The main reason I purchased this product was to play MP3s and I am very disappointed.
Got this as a Christmas gift. Mainly wanted it to listed to "books on tape" (really on CDs) and some music on CDs. For a couple months it seemed to work fine, good sound, etc. But now will only play about a half minute of the first song on the CD and then stops - will turn round if set to start on a different track but will not play. It is not the CDs as we've tried various types including some brand-new CDs (in fact, it stopped working while using a brand new one.) The change was sudden. I've tried everything in the manual, nothing works. And the MOST annoying thing - there is NO contact information in the manual so I cannot call anyone to troubleshoot this. (And my guess is that it IS fixable but I don't know enough about the item to determine how.) The radio still works - but it is an awkward footprint/setup for just using for radio. Would not buy or recommend.
