+ Full range sound.
+ Wireless connectivity.
+ Built-in rechargeable battery.

+ Durably built.
+ Mega-Bass.
+ Bundle buy.
+ Good value for money.


It is a great CD playing boombox option, the built-in battery is a big plus as keeping a track on disposable batteries is a pain, as well as less environmentally friendly. This is a great go-to boombox for anyone teaching a class in multiple locations because it is easy to lug around and has a big sound.

It is a nice combination of modern and outdated technology built by a reputable brand, we like that you you can record from CD or radio to cassette tape and it has pretty good bass capabilities especially considering its smaller footprint.
