    Inspired by one of Powell Crosley's original radio designs from the 1940s, the CR220 Comet combines an eye-catching retro design with modern engineering, creating a true one-of-a-kind table radio. The Comet is distinguished by the unique top curve of the cabinet, which not only pays tribute to the streaking pathway of an actual comet, but also functions as a "funnel" to improve bass response. As a result, the CR220 sounds as good as radios costing several times as much. Accentuating the design are a pair of bronze-colored control knobs, a large left-side 5:1 ratio analog airplane tuning dial, and a 3-inch, full-range, studio-quality speaker with a discrete amplification system. The radio's bold artistry and craftsmanship are sure to grab visitors' attention--it's an ideal accent piece for the home or office--while the full array of audio functions will keep you happily humming to your favorite tunes.

    Another nice bonus is the portable audio-ready feature. The Comet's connection kit and auxiliary input let you output sound from a portable MP3 player, iPod, CD player, or satellite radio receiver to the built-in speaker, so you can listen to the devices in any room without buying a portable speaker system. Also equipped with a 12-volt DC jack for listening in a camper, car, or boat (adapter not included) and a headphone jack for private listening, the Comet measures 10 by 5 by 5.25 inches (W x H x D) and is backed by a 90-day warranty.

    What's in the Box
    CR220 Comet radio, external AM/FM antenna, AC power cord, portable audio connection kit, user's manual.

    When my old Radio Shack kitchen radio finally died, I researched my options for a replacement & found many high-end 'table radios' (e.g. Bose & Tivoli, costing way more than I was willing to spend), lots of junk in the clock radio category (I don't need another CD player in the kitchen, thanks), and very little in the middle. Then I found this beauty & read the reviews.

    For me, great sound & good reception are most important. This one has both, plus a retro look that's easy on the eyes, with a nice wood finish. This one has terrific sound--good bass through the port & a mellow midrange. Reception is quite good, too. It's a solid value, if all you need is a tabletop radio.

    This is a great sounding radio for its size. As a test, I put the volume up to maximum to hear the expected distortion ... THERE WASN'T ANY! Even though it was only a few seconds (my neighbors and my hearing could only take so much noise), the sound was still clear. And even though it's just a single speaker radio, you can't beat the price for the quality of sound, especially the bass. The large tuning knob allows for fine tuning and feels comfortable for those of us with larger hands. There is an auxiliary input for my iPod, which requires the volume to be increased somewhat on both the iPod and the radio but the sound is still very good. The overall size of the radio and the amount of sound it produces will surprise you. I whole-heartedly recommend this radio. It deserves 5 stars!

    I usually don't write reviews for products, but after I received my radio I was blown away by both the sound and its look. The bass is deep and rich while the sound is amazingly clear and vibrant. The Comet sounds much better with one speaker than my Sony Dream Machine does with two. I had originally considered buying a Tivoli Model One but I found the price tag too high. The FM reception on my comet is crystal clear. I am not lying when I tell you that the comet sounded just as clear with slightly better bass response. I am amazed.

    This radio has impressive deep full sound for one speaker and it looks way better in person than it does in the picture. The airline dial is super cool as are the colored lights. Perfectly finished wood, nice aluminum features & solid feel. Modern art/flash gordan futuristic look. And you can hook your iPod/portable CD player up with the AUX in, how sweet is that?

    First, it looks cooler than the picture suggests. Quality construction and deep rich sound. Aux input is great. I'm a radio snob and typically run from non-digital tuning. Between the external extendable (which don't even need) and fine tuning dial, it pulls in stations as well as my high end Sangean and Sony radios. Also plus is headphone jack.

    I will keep this short and sweet. I own a Tivoli Model 1 and I recently purchased the Crosley Comet. I like the design and look of the Tivoli better but I actually prefer the sound of the Comet! Yes, I think the Comet sounds better for almost half of the cost of a Tivoli.
