Perfect Product!!!

January 25, 2014

We needed a new CD/radio player and the added feature of playing and charging your i-pod is a plus. Everything looks and sounds great. Was also the perfect size for us.

Very happy!

September 17, 2013

I bought this to use for camping trips as I enjoy listening to music outside of my trailer and do not own an iPod yet but plan to buy one in the future. The batteries lasted for five days of use. I was impressed not sure if they would last as long with an iPod. But for CDs and the radio it was nice. Good sound I always buy Sony products and am never disappointed.

I bought one of these because it was what I needed but had to get it off the shelf as a display model. I have all the components except for the operating instructions. Is there any way I can a copy of these??
