A GREAT ALL-ROUNDER !!,
This review is from: Sony CFDS05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player with Headphone Jack (Electronics)This is just a short review, but i'll try and give you my honest verdict for this product.
The good ...
1. Has CD player, Digital Tuner and Cassette player.
2. Sound quality very good for the price. Very loud and clear audio!
3. Nice build quality.
4. Has an In-socket to plug in MP3/Ipod ect when you buy the correct lead.
5. Nice looking design!
6. Can play my old tapes and record CD's ect.
7. Radio picks up lots of stations.
The bad ...
1. Bass not very good and hardly present.
2. Power only 1.7w per speaker.
3. No Bass or treble control.
For someone who wants to listen to all kinds of music whether it be on a CD or Tape and are not too fussed about sound quality this is an ideal piece of equipment to use. The sound quality is by no means bad, just seems to focus on the mid and top range of the audio spectrum. That means vocals and guitars are loud and clear, but the bass is rather lacking. You certainly wont wake up your neighbours with a booming sound through your walls! ;o)
I bought it mainly to listen to CD's in my small box room whilst using the PC and that makes it ideal. If you want to link up your Ipod to the speakers you just need to buy a small lead with a 3.5mm male jack each end and away you go.
What I really love about this player is I can listen to CD's, Tapes, Radio and anything else that plugs into the IN-Socket which makes it so versatile. I thought my old tapes would sound rubbish but was amazed how good they sounded. Sony have been clever by making this player sound good in any mode you choose to hear.
So for the money you really wont be disappointed !!

It would be useful to know if there is a headphone jack, thanks for your info, it certainly helps. Cheers.

Nice thorough review in my opinion - hope the product lives up to it! The information about cassettes was particularly interesting for me. Thanks.

V. Hill says:
no, radio is AM/FM analogue, with a digital tuner which just means it does not have an old fashioned manual dial tuner.
