Sony ZS-PS30CPB Compact CD Boombox with USB port (Electronics)

Customer Review

I purpose of acquiring a radio recorder different models in the 50-100 price range compared and tested. This radio with CD recorder playback (MP3 / WMA-CD) and USB playback is very compact, nicely rounded and easily. Unfortunately, the sound is a bit too short in my opinion. For the size of the device, however, the sound is compared with other devices in order. Nevertheless, I would spend in your place 10-20 euro more and maybe buy the bigger brother ZSRS90. The sound is still a bit better and that would be saved at the wrong end. For the playback of audio books for children This unit is always enough. Only those who frequently thus radio, CD music, or want to play MP3s from the stick, is hereby long term have not so much joy. The bass and treble can be heard, but sound a bit tinny for my taste.

Highlight at a glance:

- Radio (FM / AM) in stereo or mono (selectable)
- MP3 / WMA playback from CD / USB flash drive (USB flash drive must be formatted FAT32!)
- Title in the display (streaming tape)
- Mega Bass (The sound works by not quite so flat and is not so bassy, ​​as the name suggests)
- Mains or battery operation possible (6 C-size batteries required)
- Radio stations remain stored even after pulling plug


- If the unit has been disconnected from the power and is switched on via the radio button,
is the radio every time at the lowest frequency of 88.80 MHz. And I have
saved several radio stations and to the station memory number. 1 last heard!
That's not very comfortable and I have never experienced in any radio so.
But you get used to it.

My main focus was actually on the radio functions and an appealing sound. The radio reception is working well. The sound is okay for the price range, but does not convince me really, because I heard about it over long hours of radio and music. The device is suitable as a primary FR for the kids, but not for much longer.

Conclusion: If (eg CD player, USB flash drive playback, MP3 / WMA playback) wants a universal tuner with itself, the ideal device receives here for 60 with a mediocre sound you do not want to listen for hours. But the speakers are too simple. The compact and functional design and the simple and self-explanatory operation convince.
