Great for the money !!!,
This review is from: Roberts CD9959 Swallow LW/MW/FM Radio CD Player (Electronics)
I wanted a cheap CD player for a small room and decided to buy it.
My review is obviously not comparing against expensive HIFI units but cheap (Under £50) radio/Cd players.
1/ No digital tuner, just the old-type dial analogue radio tuner.
2/ The slide-switches feel cheap quality and are a bit stiff to move. The CD lid feels delicate when you close it and could have been made stronger.
3/ No cassette player. Is it really needed though??
4/ Hiss noise present when volume is turned down low.
5/ Green LED screen is basic only showing CD track numbers and nothing else.
1/The loud sound quality is pretty good and vocals and hi frequencies are clear and bright. The bass is ok but won't shake your pictures off the wall. ;o)
2/Overal build quality is quite good apart from the odd bits. For the money you can't expect everything to be top-quality.
3/In my opinion is pleasing to look at and I expecially like the 'Clear' CD lid which shows the CD spinning around.
4/Compact size makes it great for small rooms.
5/Picks up many radio stations.
So while it not perfect, for the money you get a great little sounding piece of equipment that hopefully has 'ROBERTS' quality parts fitted inside.
I've only had mine a few days so only time will tell how long it will last.
