JVC RV-NB52 CD PORTABLE BOOMBLASTER,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JVC RV-NB52 CD Portable Boomblaster with Integrated iPod Dock and Twin Subwoofer - Black (Electronics)
I needed to buy a portable music system for line dance classes held in local town hall that would be loud enough with no additional speakers.After reading good reviews I ordered this model.It plays all types of cd's even re-writable ones that some systems won't play.The remote is very good and although the hall is quite large volume never has to be operated at over 20 (WILL GO UP TO 30).I do not have an I.Pod so this can't be rated.
My Problem is with the USB.I downloaded and sync 20 songs to my USB stick,printed out my numbered playlist ready for my class.Luckily I did think to check playback on the boomblaster,it did indeed play everything I wanted but NOT in the right order.On closer reading of the enclosed leaflet "playback order may be different from the one you have intended",something to do with "hierarchy".Although you can programme playback of up to 30 tracks from a disc or usb by changing the track numbers,when the power supply is turned off this is all cancelled.As I will not be carrying the unit each week,but locking it in a cupboard in the hall,the power supply will be turned off and there won't be enough time to change track numbers before class.Very good for home use but I'll just have to keep playind cd's.
Anyone else needing it for dance classes using the usb -do bear my comments in mind.
For the playing of cd's brilliant!
As an update for my review I now have an I pod classic which plays perfectly with this boombox with no problems at all.Though in the leaflet from JVC it says you need an additional adapter dock to play the I pod, in actual fact you do not,the sound is amazing and very easy to use.
Therefore I have rated this product again-A five star product *****
As a later update, yes this has a headphone socket on the back of the unit.

If you have batteries then the unit will remember memory settings when switched off
