A couple of months ago my CD player was not working as it was supposed to and so I decided it was probably time to buy a new one, the last one was very old though! I wanted a CD player and radio in one as although the radio was more important to me I still have CDs which I want to use. I found that there was a lot of radios out there but finding a nice cheaper CD and radio wasn't as easy as it used to be. In the end I found this Sony HiFi on amazon which was perfect.
The HiFi was around sixty pounds which was good for me as I didn't want to pay loads on a CD/ radio, I just wanted something that looked nice and played CDs / radio well. When I first saw it I liked how it looked and thought the white and black was nice as it wouldn't look out of place in any rooms. I also liked how it was not too big as a lot of ones I had seen when searching were quite big and I don't have that much space where it was going.
When I first got it out of the box I was pleased with the size as it fit perfectly where I wanted it but there was one problem, the length of the cable to plug into the wall was not very long at all. I placed it on my desk and struggled to get it to reach the plug on the floor below it. I got it to reach in the end but I had to put it a lot closer to the wall than I would have had it.
The CD and radio work really well and have a great sound for what it is. There is an on/off button on the CD player itself but most of the time I use the control which is useful. The control requires one AA battery and can be used to control most aspects of the CD player and to swap between radio and CD. I prefer this than having buttons on the CD player itself as it means I don't have to be right next to the CD player to control it.
Overall I think this is a great CD Player / radio for the price and I hope it will last me for years to come.
