    Excellent sound and bass

    I bought this to use on my rooftop patio. The base is loud and overall it has enough power even outdoors to hear the music well. I was using multi room wireless speakers prior and they just did not offer enough headroom to get the music loud on the patio. The does well. It also looks cool.

    Awesome boombox!

    Awesome boombox! The item that I received is what I really expected. It is in good perfect condition and so far, it’s working fine. Best Buy’s order tracking is very helpful, convenient and efficient.

    Good Boombox

    Good boomboxes vs. Others for the same money. Got it on sale so it makes up for the little things I don't like. When radio is playing can't tell the difference between xbass on or off. If you like the highs this is not for you. Heavy but end speakers are well protected I gave it 5 stars because I got it on sale otherwise 4 stars.

    Takes me back to the 80's

    I've read the past reviews, and took the risk purchasing through Deal of the Day. I will tell you I have people offering the full price if I would sell it to them. Needless to say, I've kept it and continue to enjoy this flashback boombox. Although not the quality of sound like the new generation of systems like Bose, Sony, and other brands of the like, the sound quality is pretty good. Obviously, the quality of digital music nowadays is a lot higher, so it is a step up from the analog music played through the original boomboxes.

    Overall quality is fairly good. The knobs are cheap plastic, and not the quality as found on the original boomboxes, but if you can look past it, you will enjoy. The only thing I would've appreciated would be having the VU meters rather than the light show, like the ones installed on the JVC and Panasonic boomboxes of yesteryear that I owned as a teenager.

    Overall, I am enjoying the boombox, and further enjoy the reaction people have when they hear it playing "old school" rock and R&B.

    No cassette player

    The Bestbuy on site specs read: Cassette Player yes. This was a gift for an OG with a large cassette collection. This does not have a built in cassette player. You could hook one to it, but no. It looked cool and fun with the disco lights but I had to return it.

    Very good sounding "retro" boombox.

    It was nice to find a modern version of a "retro" boombox like in the 1980's, that plays CD'S and

    is up to date to play MP3's with a USB Flashdrive

    input and bluetooth too from an external music

    player, as I can from my smartphone.

    The digital aspects, in red, are useful for showing

    the mode chosen, etc. The Peak Sound displays

    and blue backlights on the speakers are colorful.

    However, the Peak Sound levels are quite sensitive

    to the recorded levels, and they reach peak easily.

    The Bass and Treble tone controls are helpful.

    The AM and FM reception are moderate in their sensitivity, failing to pick up and separate weaker

    AM stations, and FM Stereo reception requires a

    fairly strong signal. It would be nice to have these

    Frequencies in a digital readout, which have been

    available for over 30 years.

    There are not any recording capabilities such as to

    CD's not Flashdrives, which would be nice, but

    probably at a greater cost.

    So far the internal rechargeable battery seems to

    power the unit well.

    Your technician Brian Herring was a vey polite and knowledgeable man. He hooked up my home theatre system right down to the very last wire. He talked about what he was doing it , just to clear up any question od doubt I may have had. If I ever should need a Technician for anything again, I'll request Brian . Good man!

  • Review by Mojo, 10 out of 10
    Obnoxious, and that's exactly what I wanted

    It doesn't give off a ton of audio quality, but the amount of bass boom this thing carries more than speaks for itself. I can see myself enjoying this for a very long time. The lights coming off the back create wings on my walls. Playing call of duty has never sounded more appealing. The only negative thing I can say is that the aux inputs aren't very user friendly. (Especially for more modern technology) thankfully bluetooth somewhat makes up for that. But I wouldn't recommend this to anyone living in an apartment. My parents can hear the bass even at a low volume in the room next to mine. I'm not sure how it does at max volume. I only got to maybe 36 out of 62 before I decided I don't want to be deaf for the rest of my life. 5/5

    Almost

    I bought this hoping for a sound system comparable to the muteki zx6 (which is the best stereo ever made), but it just doesn't have the sound or volume abilities I expected. Aside from that it's okay, the speakers are bigger than the bass is powerful, and the sound modes are a little strange. I recommend it still. The light show is pretty cool.

    Excellent for medium-sized parties and events

    I bought this sound system to use for hosting bar trivia and parties/events. I pack it up and transport it in storage totes, set up, use it to play music and speak to the crowd for 2+ hours, and then unhook, pack up, and transport everything, two or three times a week.

    I have been very pleased with the product. The sound quality is better than the PA speakers and mixer setup that the other hosts generally use. The microphone volume is not as strong or adjustable as with a PA setup, but it is enough for medium to large restaurants depending on the acoustics. I have used predominantly Bluetooth but also the FM radio and the stereo RCA in from my phone, and the sound quality, all with good results.

    I have, however, experienced one or two issues with Bluetooth and I believe interference from too many other Bluetooth and/or WiFi devices nearby. When hosting an event with ~40 people, the system disconnected from my phone's Bluetooth and had to be connected physically. This is the only time that has happened, but other times there has been noticeable audio ticks which do not seem to be caused by overheating. It is not consistent in starting, or even remaining, so may be caused by an unknown factor.

    Setup and tear down are more complicated than a normal system because the lights are involved, and odd because the wires do not disconnect from the speakers, only the head unit. It's only been a few months, but the system seems to be holding up well to being constantly transported, set up, and unhooked.

    The lights are a fun addition to the setup, making them more unique and, obviously, eye catching than a normal system. They pulse along to the music pretty well, though not with tight sync and choreography, they just seem to be reacting to bass patterns as they establish themselves. It definitely requires a dark room to get the best affect out of them, as the lights aren't incredibly strong, but in the right settings they definitely enhance the experience.

    I don't have major complaints about the system, just small ones:

    - The cables: why aren't audio and lights on the same proprietary cable? If you aren't going to combine them, let the speaker audio cables have standard plugs so they can be replaced with any speaker down the line.

    - Optical audio input would be nice

    - Whatever is causing the ticking problem

    - The microphone input: plugging in or unplugging stops all sound output for a second, and the maximum volume is low

    - Guitar/Mic 2 input: I've not used this yet, but the fact that it shares one volume control for both mic inputs could lead to issues

    - The rear lights: Great concept, just good execution. They could use at least one more color, and maybe changing patterns/rotation

    - No mounting holes on the speakers. This means there's not a simple, stable way out of the box to get them on stands like you would do with a PA speaker.

    Love it, not sure why they stopped making it. Glad I got it when I did. This little system slams, perfect for an apartment. Plenty of bass. The lights get a bit repetitive but they shut off, so all good. Again I love this system.

    Looks Can Be Deceiving

    This boombox looks cool, however, it feels very cheap. The kind of cheap that feels like there are loose parts shaking around the inside of the component. Pick this thing up and you’ll see what I mean. Very flimsy controls. The plastic sounds like it will eventually give and something will internally break. Will be returning this, to save for a better cassette player. Also, the sound is not the greatest. Gets the job done, but the image on the box looks nicer than whats in the box.

    It's a novelty item

    With a trained ear as a musician for most of my life, I appreciate good clarity. My opinions are based on that fact.

    Growing up in the 80’s, I’ve had my share of Boomboxes. I have no idea what happened to any of them at this point, but I have been wanting something like that again for years, so I was excited to see a company actually take a shot at re-creating the much adored old skool Boombox. I do applaud ION for the retro look of this (I had one very similar way back), but that’s about where the cool ends for me. Personally, the most important part of a Boombox is the sound and this just fails. While it is not trying to compete with audiophile quality, it could still be loads better. You get a two band (Bass & Treble) EQ, plus Bass Boost and that isn’t enough for me to coax a pleasing sound. The speakers are small and thin sounding causing distortion a little past 50% volume. Bass boost is useless and only makes speakers distort worse. I have tried cassettes, Micro SD music, radio, as well as Bluetooth, and while all of these options work well (it’s nice to actually have a Cassette deck again), the sound quality ultimately ruins the vibe.

    This is marketed as a modern version of a classic, which includes Bluetooth and an SD card slot. Bluetooth pairing with my Android phone was simple and flawless. Every time I flip the toggle to Bluetooth, it connects to my phone right away. The SD card slot is a welcome addition, but I have a couple of thoughts there as well. First off, why not include the more standard full size SD slot instead of a micro SD? I doubt there is a space issue, so that is odd. Secondly, there should definitely be a “shuffle” button included on the side controls for SD and/or USB device playback. Who really wants to listen to 8, 16, or 32 gigabytes of music all in a row?

    The tuner seems solid and gets great reception in my area.

    It includes an internal rechargeable battery. Very cool feature, but no sure how much time it will provide yet. There is also an option to load it up with six D cell batteries, but again I want to ask why? Why not use that space for a bigger internal rechargeable battery instead? Maybe even make it a battery that can be ejected and replaced over time.

    Conclusion… Nicely built, solid sounding, aesthetically pleasing Boomboxes were all the rage in my youth. I can only hope that other companies climb on board the retro wagon and start reproducing some of the classic Boomboxes of Generation X. Let’s also hope that if they do, they focus on sound quality a little more than this offering.

    PROS:

    Retro styling

    Internal rechargeable battery

    Cassette deck and Radio work well

    Built in mics so you can record straight to Cassettes/SD cards

    CONS:

    Speakers are thin causing distortion a little past 50% volume

    Bass boost is useless and only makes speakers distort worse

    Some of the printed text on mine is smeared, giving it a more cheap look

    Should use the D cell battery compartment for more internal battery

    SD slot should be full size

    No “shuffle” button for SD cards

    A blast from the past

    The Ion Boombox Deluxe does a great job at bringing old technology and integrating it with modern day tech. For those of you that grew up in the 80s and 90s this is a sure fire way to bring you back those long summer days with friends by the pool or beach. Lets dive in to this little piece of nostalgia and see what you can expect to receive from this set up.

    First off out of the box your going to receive the main boombox, power cord and instructions. First off i want to say this unit looks just like a old school boombox with a built in cassette player that i grew up listening to. It seems that Ion really wanted to focus on making this unit a real life replica of what we all grew up with. Let me explain what i mean by this. It has a functioning AM/FM digital receiver that works with a side mount turn dial knob. The cassette player isn't just for looks but actually plays cassettes and lets you record on to them. Here's the really cool part about the cassette player being able to record. You can record directly off the radio station or you can record on to a cassette off of your own custom playlist rather it be through bluetooth or the side mounted usb or micro SD ports. It has working left and right VU level gauges along with a functioning scale. The top of the stereo features three turn style knobs for volume, bass and treble. On the other side you have three throw switches for am/fm, mono/stereo/bass boost, and tape/aux/radio/usb. They even went as far as to throw in a functioning battery tray which allows for 6 D batteries. Yes this unit is rechargeable and runs off a built in rechargeable battery but what i found funny and kinda of nostalgic was the fact that in the instruction booklet they even say that if you want to feel more like the past they provided a battery tray so that you can install batteries which will power it just like when you were a kid. Gotta love the attention to detail! This unit will connect to your phone through bluetooth so that during bbq's or parties you can play all your favorite jams off of Spotify or Google Play Music. Now lets chat for a moment about sound quality. If sound quality is a big deal to you then i advise you stay away from this unit. Sound quality coming off of this boombox isn't horrible but isn't the best by any means. My first reaction when listening to music off of my Spotify playlist was " WOW this sounds just like the boombox i owned when i was i kid." Now don't get me wrong its not exactly that bad. The sound quality is clear and not all distorted like it was in the past its just that the quality sounds very plain. The bass boost function does little to no help in getting that extra bass out there. In fact when i switched the bass boost on, all it seemed to do was make the music louder. Obviously the drivers aren't the top of the line but that's ok. I would hope one would not buy this thinking they are going to get orchestra like quality but rather would buy this for its functionality and looks. This unit definitely grabs attention and so far everywhere i have taken it, it has definitely gotten good reaction from others. I've had some people wanting to buy it off of me just for the simple fact that it looks perfectly like the ones we group up with. This boombox even allows for you to answer calls and talk through the radio via the built in mic.

    Overall guys this unit did a very good job at replicating something we all group with. Sound quality isn't superb so then why the 5 stars? Here's the reason why. Anytime i buy a replica of something from the past i expect it to be exactly like the item i remember owning with a touch of modern day technology. Everything on this unit functions and nothing is placed there just for aesthetics but rather brings it all together to make it feel like a genuine 80's boombox. Even though the sound quality isn't great that's ok because the sound quality was never good off of a boombox to begin with however its still way better sound quality than an actual original style boombox. The simple fact that you have an actual functioning cassette player and AM/FM tuner was a big plus. With the addition of a battery tray which holds 6 D batteries just like back in the days was a nice touch that made me laugh but in a good way. Over all this is a good unit and a good buy. If your looking for something to impress your friends with or a good piece to add to your blast from the past collection then i feel you will be greatly pleased. However if your sole concern is sound quality then stay away from this unit. Me however, i found this unit to fit me perfectly. If i want superb sound quality then i'll grab my Bose however when it comes to having friends over and BBQ, this is my go to unit.

    Totally Awesome! I Mean Like... Totally!

    TLDR Review: Is this the best Bluetooth stereo out there? No, not by a long shot. Is this the most RAD Bluetooth stereo to rock out your 80's playlist while sportin' your Member's Only jacket and breakdancing (or in my case, probably breaking my hip or my neck)? Yes, yes it is.

    I love music and I collect music players of all sorts and I have really loved the advent of either retrofitting old devices with new tech or styling the devices like their older counterparts. I have originals like a 1919 standing Victrola that works beautifully and I have a bluetooth radio build into an old early '60s Zenith clock radio, among a lot of others. When I saw the ION Audio Boombox Deluxe I knew I had to add it to the collection since I had a boombox pretty close to this in the 80's. There were many evenings at the youth center practicing my non-existent breakdancing moves on cardboard in the common room. The music was awesome but my talent was about what you would expect from a nerdy 10 year old white kid with all the rhythm of Steve Martin from 'The Jerk'. (WOW, did I just feel old right then).

    While this is not the best bluetooth radio, it has the benefit of being a cool reproduction, getting EXTREMELY loud - almost booming if you will, and it can can play music from the radio, bluetooth, tape, micro-sd card, and USB sticks. The Boombox Deluxe pretty much has you covered. On top of that you can also record to tape from those other sources or to the SD-card or USB if you want! Here comes the mix-tape/SD-card combo pack!

    The battery life is pretty good. At first I was a bit disappointed that I did not get the rated 10 hours that ION claims but it turns out that I did not properly top off the charge when I got it. I did plug it in when I received it but the charging light did not come on. Looking in the users guide, it said that the light is off when fully charged so I assumed it was already at 100% and I unplugged it right away. I ended up getting 7 hours and 45 minutes out of it before it died. I went to plug it in to recharge it and the light still didn't come on. Couldn't find anything in the users guide about charging other than 'plug it in', so I went online and found that not only do you have to plug it in, you must also flip the switch on the back of the Boombox to activate AC use. This needs to be done if you are listening to it while plugged in AND also to get it to charge the built in battery! Would have been nice to know. The only thing it says about that power switch is on pg. 7 and that it is there to turn the device on or off. I'm still not sure what all that switch is for since the 'MODE' switch on the top turns it on regardless of which that way that On/Off switch is set. I think it must be more for directing current from the AC cord or if you want to power it from D-Cell batteries (which you can also do).

    My only other grumble about the Boombox Deluxe is the fact that the level meters (both the analog needles and the lights) don't really work unless you have it on radio or tape and have the volume up to ear-splitting levels. Would have been nice if they were a bit more sensitive to actually work at reasonable volume levels. For that and the whole power issue, I would knock of 1/2 a star if I could but since I can't, and I'm so geeked by the nostalgia factor, I'll give it the full 5-stars. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go grab my Members Only jacket (yes, I do, in fact have one - they are still made believe it or not) and a few my old tapes the I dug out of storage (REM 'Green' and Madonna 'Like a Prayer', which BTW STILL smells like pachouli) and go blast this thing to bug all the old people!

    Great novelty boombox

    This is the perfect boombox for a small gathering at the beach or pool. I will be honest, if you are looking for some thump, then this will be a hard pass; my UE Roll does a better job. But, if you are looking for something fun and portable, this will get the job done.

    Christmas CD Player

    I love the music quality. It is nice to have a cd player, radio and cassette player all in one. My only problem is that I can not find a power button on the actual unit. Usually your first set of batteries come with the remote, but since they didn't I have not been able to find the power button. I love the unit other then that. I have even hooked up the Bluetooth to the device. The surround sound makes it sound like the bands are right in the house with me.

    It has been so long since I 've been able to get lost in my music. But with the 5 CD changer I am in music heaven. Being able to play 5 CDs was the reason I purchased this item. The system does a lot and it has taken me a bit to get familiar with all the buttons. ECO will turn off main display. Have not figured out to keep the time on the display....but I will. And the music plays on.

    This is not what I expected.

    I purchased this stereo system, it was not what I expected. Without raising the base to level five sound sounds like crap. So you have to raise the base level to level five and it still sounds like crap you have to push the button for extra bass in order for you. To hear the sound that you should normally here at level five without extra bass. When you hit the button for extra bass it’s still not loud enough. When you hit the button to lower the volume level of the base level it will not go back down to level one it stays locked. And when you hit the CD open up the door for city one it opens up and closes instantly before you can even put the CD in. The font lettering on the stereo system is sooooooo small in print Font you can barely even read what it says the stereo system it’s not worth the price that they’re selling it for very disappointed also you cannot store your favorite radio stations with a remote control. You have to search for your favorite radio station. System is hard to set up for Bluetooth. Very unhappy with this product As you can see in the pictures you can’t even see the font lettering even up close in the picture. This is a crappy product. Not worth $219 with taxes

    Works fine.

    This stereo has all of the features that I was looking for. I can load 5 cds and start them playing. They will play progressively on their own for a long time while I work. I also have a large collection of cassettes from the 80s. It can play them too. The fm works ok. I will add a tv antenna and cable, which will plug into the back. There is one thing that I really do not like about it. You have to use the remote to 'boot' it up. Tell me what if the batteries corrode in the remote.

    Performance Excellent for Mini Stereo

    This Sharp mini stereo is just what I wanted. Compact but performs like a larger system. I have tested all components and have been satisfied with it.

    I suggest that before you operate this mini stereo that you read the instructions and the online Q&As. This definitely helped me to avoid issues since I was aware of setup and became familiar with the main unit and remote prior to using it. A lot of buttons to push but taking the time to learn the mini stereo system was beneficial.

    All Aroud Good Choice

    Small box but big sound. Good reach for local FM radio stations. We found it good for listening during power outages since it runs on batteries also. Since it has an 'aux in' jack we can use it to hear our LP record player which has no speakers. We still have a big box of CDs which we love to listen to with battery power on picnics. All around good choice. The display is big enough and it is clear to read in any light.

    Insignia boombox a booming success!

    Bought Insignia Boombox for playing CDs at trade show in the outback of New Hampshire. We weren't disappointed. Clear and crisp sound of the CD player in the field. Clear as a bell FM radio station pickup back at our accommodation next to a lake. Only problem was the two-prong connection for AC electric to play the radio provided difficulty by unexpectedly coming loose and disconnecting. This was corrected by using some tape to hold the cord connector onto the back of the radio. Had to do a little figuring on using for CDs. Played for hours at show and accommodation. All in all, a good value for the $ and type of use. Used it June 19 through 27.

    New Boom Box for a Friend

    This boom box was actually for my elderly friend. Overall she like the small size as it was easy to carry from one room to another. The ability to place batteries was a plus which she didn't have to carry the cord around the house. The sound was great for her as she stays in a one bed room. She enjoy the display as it was bright and the print on the display was easy for her to read. The only thing that she said could have been better were the buttons they were a bit small and prove to be a slight challenge to use when changing the station or changing a song from her CD.

    Good kid-room CD player

    We got this to replace a dying unit for the kids’ room. They love to play CD-based audio books and songs at bedtime. First one wouldn’t power on and needed to be exchanged, but second one works great. Only negative is that it shuts power down a few minutes after being paused so the kids can’t keep their spot with the audio books.

    Sounds & looks great!

    Wow! Some of the reviews on here weren't fair in regards to the sound. It actually really sounds good. It may have benefited from separate bass / treble knobs, but even with the lone "tone" knob, it sounds very full.

    The fact that it has a very convenient Bluetooth option makes am/fm reception issues sort of irrelevant. That being said, the FM seemed pretty good, but the AM seemed kinda weak. But again, with the Bluetooth option, i just use the app to tune in, and its perfectly clear.

    Bought one for my kitchen shelf and one for my parents for Christmas, as I thought they'd like the nostalgic look.

    I bought this so I could take it from room to room in my apartment. It's the cutest little thing. It has good sound quality for such a little Boombox. It's old school and I love it!!

    Bluetooth doesn't connect.

    I bought this to have as a backup CD player for my car. CD player, radio, cassette all works fine, but the bluetooth has yet to connect. I've had it now for several months, so I've given it ample time to connect to several devices. I didn't return it, because it works for what I need, but test the bluetooth on these and keep your receipt.

    Not much of a 'Boom' box!

    Just when I thought I found a suitable replacement for my Sony CDF-S36 CD Radio Cassette-Corder, was I woefully disappointed.

    First of all, I was taken aback by the quality of the ‘push’ buttons on the control panel. Some buttons were uneven and others, cock-eyed. Nevertheless, they still seemed to work when I pressed them to startup the ‘Boom’ box. Then I observed an excessive rectangular cut-out for the optical reader, a less than optimal design solution which will probably shorten the life of the CD player as dust and other airborne particles begin to easily accumulate inside the unit. But the most glaring concern, hands down, is the quality of sound or lack thereof!

    When I turned on the unit for the first time, it seemed as though it was still packed inside the box. The ‘muffled’ resonance is awful. It’s neither crisp nor clear and it also fails to produce the nominal highs and lows that are essential for any music appreciation. My previous boom box had cost $70.00 (in 2001) and had a ‘mega’ bass and ‘mega’ expand sound setting but who would have thought there would have been much of a difference for a unit that is now $10.00 less after 20 years of improved technology?

    As a discerning audiophile, had I taken the time to listen to the ‘Boom’ box in the store instead of buying it online, it might have stayed there. But if you're still skeptical and find this review overly critical, then, by all means, buy it. However, do yourself a favor. Find a pair of decent computer speakers and plug them into the rear jack for the earphones. Fortunately, I had a pair of older Creative I-Trigue 2300, 18-watt 2.0 computer speakers (which cost me $40.00 in 2007) that I hooked up to the unit and now it sounds almost as good as my old Sony!

    So, for now, I’ll keep the ‘Boom’ box but if it craps out at any time during my Best Buy two-year protection plan, I’ll gladly return it for an upgrade . . .

    Boombox review

    Its very sleek and stylish, the sound quality is superb and lots of bass for those hip hop fans. Also the cd player plays perfectly and even loads semi scratched cds without a problem. The radio works excellent and its worth every penny. You won't be disappointed at all with purchasing this item. The price is unbeatable and it's very well made and sturdy. Perfect for any outdoor event or setting and the battery life is awesome and will last for days depending on your use of it.

    Great loud boombox with great features

    Very nice product with many features. Cassette deck and bluetooth/aux in are all as loud as radio when playing. Radio antenna picks up stations well. Sound is clear at higher (not highest) volume number. Good enough to carry over a hot tub blower running. 2 drawbacks...everything is push button for every function. I see future issues with that. Also the back hole where the AC cord plugs into is frail. It broke off back into the boombox and is quite a pain to use now. It has 6 months left on warranty

    Quality unit with a few significant flaws

    Pros:

    -Great sound quality.

    -Mostly very sturdy construction.

    Cons:

    -The front buttons (the main ones you'll be pressing when you're not listening to a cassette) are very small and thus hard to read if your eyes aren't good, and they take more effort to press than you'd expect.

    -Bluetooth stopped wanting to connect to my phone after a few months.

    -CD player lid feels relatively delicate and will open with just the slightest accidental press.

    Good CD player!

    It does work well! You can play your cassettes also! It's a nice feeling to go get your old tapes coming back to life :)

    The only thing I'm kinda disappointed is that it doesn't have an equalizer or adjust the bass or treble.

    Amazing sound quality…

    This little system by Sharp is really impressive. It looks good, sounds amazing, and is reasonably priced.

    I use mine in the bedroom. It connects to my iPhone / iPad easily. The sound quality is superb.

    I’d say the only issue I have is that the speaker wires need to be a little longer, but I just used some spare speaker wire and spliced them to give them a little bit more reach. Easy fix.

I love that it comes with a remote control. I have it connected to my tv and the quality of the sound is perfect. The radio stations I listen to comes in crystal clear. The Bluetooth connectivity was very easy. I’ve had the system for 3 weeks now and no issues.

    Impressive unit

    I call this a bookcase stereo unit. Small, yet powerful enough for my needs in my off. Only draw back I've noticed is when you power off the unit "Bluetooth Standby" stays on. I've looked through the instructions with the unit and there is nothing there to indicate how to power this down also. When you turn on the extra base, it muffles the music. Overall I would rate the unit a 4.5, however no half marks are available so I gave it a 5 rating.

Small size, not obtrusive but packs more than enough loud, undistorted sound.

    Not a bad boombox but with unexceptional sound.

    The Studebaker boombox has decent sound but nothing out of the ordinary. It is not particularly well designed which results in it being awkward to insert a cd. This is because one has to insert the cd vertically while trying to make sure one does not get fingerprints on the cd or scratch the cd. It would be better if the boombox had a tray that flipped out into a horizontal position so it would be much easier to load a cd. In addition, the radio did not work on my new Studebaker boombox. I returned it to Best Buy and received a credit on my debit card.

    Stupid speaker wire length

    Very terrible set up. The speaker wires are only two feet long. I can't arrange it right and it looks stupid. Do not buy!!!

    Bad

    Sounds like a tin can. Like a giant cellphone speaker. Have to go high volume to get any kinda bass. Doesn't deserve any stars.

    Disappointing but pretty

    This is a nicely built console and looks really good. It's solid, heavy and doesn't seem cheap at all. I got it half off on sale so I think it was a decent value but I wouldn't pay full price for it. At 80W I wasn't expecting a lot of power but I thought it would sound better. It can be a little tinny sounding. I played music through a bluetooth connection from my phone which sounded worse than a connected tape player via RCA connection.

    My biggest disappointment in it is that I bought it because it has two USB inputs. I mistakenly assumed I could attach my USB output turntable and USB output tape deck. The only thing it will play from USB is a memory stick with music pre-loaded on it. It does not recognize the attached USB components. It has a HDMI port so I suppose if you used it as a TV stand you could skip a soundbar and run your TV sound through it but I don't think it has much better sound than your TV speakers likely have.

    DO NOT BUY

    I really wanted this to sound incredible, instead I can get better sound from my cellphone up against a tin can. Seriously, I will be returning this. All the buttons are on the BACK so if you don't want to use the remote you have to move the cabinet away from the wall to turn the volume up or turn the unit off. If you need to plug anything into you must move it away from the wall. The plugs and switches could have easily been mounted inside the cabinet to make it easier to actually use. If the sound quality wasn't so horrible I would have MAYBE kept it but I still would have been incredibly dissatisfied with it.

    Expected Mote

    I had a bit of a hard time syncing it with my vinyl player. Sometimes even the pairing via bluetooth is a hit or miss. I still like it in my living room, though. Somewhat nostalgic
