Little player for little kids
on February 18, 2011
When looking for a CD player, I did not have much criteria regarding what I needed it to do, have a cd player, have a line in (or ipod dock), be under $50, and have some decent sound (not too much to ask for.. no?). It is not like I have massive expectations, this is a player merely for bedtime songs for my five year old daughter, and tbh, she is not too picky, well, about the sound anyways.
The first three criterion were fulfilled, but the last one, well, not so much. It is a "cute" player (per daughter's observation), and a nice size, but after playing an acoustic folk album that she likes, it is sadly obvious good sound was not standard set in place by RCA either. It is a cheap player, but the fact that the player can not handle the bass of Puff the Magic Dragon, or Jimmy Crack Corn, is kind of sad. So if you are interested in a player for hip hop, techno, or even some pop music, do not expect much if the music is centered around any kind of interesting beat or bass.
I did give it a three because I did get the majority of things I wanted out of a cheap player, and, overall, I really did not expect Bose type or surround sound playing from an under 50 bucks music player. It also came really fast, but, the love I have for amazon and their shipping dept. has always been something I rave about...
