For years, the name Sony has been synonymous with high performance, or premium electronics. That has not changed over the years, and Sony still continues to be a driving force in the electronics industry. When it comes to Home Stereos and Boomboxes, Sony is considered the best of the best. Sony Boomboxes and Micro Shelf Systems have pioneered many of the standards that we still expect today. Maintaining the level of integrity that Sony has earned, they released the ZS-S50CP Personal Audio System.

The CD Player plays back MP3 files for pre-recorded and burned CDs, and also features a 3.5mm Aux input giving users the ability to hook up any portable audio device or smartphone that has a headphone jack. With all of these features, and the ability to run off of "D" Batteries or AC Power the sky truly is the limit.
