OK I'll be honest. I havent bought a portable CD player before. I know this is strange given that everyone seems to have them nowadays. I have millions of CD's and I am sick of recording them to minidisc. So i thought I'd turn less modern and buy a CD player for ease of use. Now, i'm glad I did!
This CD-player plays all my CD's perfectly. It must have an extremely powerful laser as a lot of my CD's to be honest have scratches and my home CD player doesn't play all of them perfectly. However, this one does. The sound quality is also brilliant. I bought some normal cheap Sony headphones and the quality is incredible. However I have researched and some of the players come with headphones, I would recommend trying to find this for an extra bargain.
The volume goes up to an incredibly loud sound. Feels like your ear drums are about to burst. The player has some extra functions. As well as the basic functions such as random play and repeat you can increase the bass in a few stages. When on full you can really feel it bashing your ear drums. I warn you dont turn the bass up full unless you want a shock!
The player comes with rechargeable batteries which is pretty standard nowadays. In terms of charging they are very quick, maybe an hour. However their battery life is minimal lasting only 15 hours. I would recommend Duracell Extra Strength batteries for play life of 50 hours plus.
The Sony player features an anti-skip proofing option which can be enabled very simply. This allows top quality music play without any annoying skipping and breaks in the sound. Especially useful if you are an active person and enjoy going for jogs in the countryside etc. I myself am a skateboarded which involves constant motion and the player never skips for me! The only problem is that it takes the battery down quicker, but this is nothing when you want an uninterrupted sound.
The look of this player is really cool to say t
he least. It is of modern design, compact and light with a weight of 158g. Brilliant compared to it's contempory designs!
The player is slightly noisy during playback but usually you will be listening to music at this point so it shouldn't really matter. The only way I found this was using the optical output to record mini-discs. This can also be used to connect your speakers for high quality sound production. The LCD remote included helps to make a good in home system possible.
An amazing bargain for about £70 at most places. I would recommend to all those wanting to play their music CD's on the move. Amazing quality at an amazing price.
