Bold Styling and Portable Power


Sony CFD-G700CP Angle

An aggressive design houses two full-range speakers with separate tweeters and a ported subwoofer, for 20 watts of powerful sound.

Sony CFD-G700CP Light

Add Sony's DLS-1 controller and you can connect to certain American DJ lights for visual effects.

Form and Function
The first thing anyone would notice when looking at this boombox from Sony is its radical design, with a bold black, red, and silver color scheme and styling that might befit a spaceship more than a boombox. Of course it all has a purpose, housing two 4-inch drivers, each with its own 0.8-inch tweeter. Taking up the low end is a 5-inch subwoofer, which pumps bass through the reflex ports on the bottom, for some serious, thumping low end.

Audio Input
Connect iPods, other MP3 players, or pretty much any audio device using the stereo mini (3.5-mm) input.

Cassettes, CDs, and MP3s
The CFD-G700CP will play your cassette tapes, your CD and CD-R/RW discs, and better yet, it lets you play back burned CD-R/RW discs full of MP3s, for hours of music on a single disc.

Digital AM/FM Stereo Tuner
Provides accurate, drift-free tuning of AM and FM radio stations, with 20 FM and 10 AM presets to instantly pull up your faves.

20-Watt Output
Twenty watts is more than enough power to fill most rooms with sound. Five preset sound modes let you dial in the EQ curve: choose from Rock, Dance, Reggaeton, Salsa, and Flat.

Remote Included
The included remote control features keys for directly accessing CD tracks or preset radio stations, along with playback functions, volume, and more.

D-Light Sync Capability
As an added bonus, the CFD-G700CP can connect to American DJ D-Light Sync Pak Stage Lights (sold separately), for stunning visual effects. Add Sony's DLS-1 controller and compatible lights, and you'll really have a party.

What's in the Box

Sony CFD-G700CP CD boombox radio cassette recorder, power cable, remote control, and documentation.

Well, it arrived yesterday, in the original packaging with the tape sagging, but the internal fitted-cardboard packaging protected the unit just fine. I lugged (that term used purposefully) the box into the kitchen, unboxed it, and set it on the kitchen table. Most of it (the table, I mean.) This unit is HUGE.

It looks ready to take off, or strap it to your back like the rocket pack from the Rocketeer (and it's about that same size). Pictures on the Amazon site give you the breadth but not the depth of the sizing.

Assuming you can handle the size, the main function of the unit - produce quality sound at high volumes - is worth the entry fee. Classical, simple vocal, pop, rock, country - excellent sound and reasonable tone-shaping controls - presets for rock, salsa, flat, and a couple of others do shape the sound a bit. 3 levels for the bass add, tied to the red rim light on the center bass speaker.

Controls are reasonably intuitive, although the station preset button is strangely hidden on the cassette side. The manual is adequate and provided the answer.

Con 1: wish the red light was not tied to the bass add, so it could be turned off. My intended use for this is to show movies outside while camping, and the red light is going to be annoying.

Con 2: I see no reason why the 3.5mm input jack has to be behind a plastic door - requiring you to open it each time to use it or the provided 6" or so pre-attached cable.

Con 3: Size. And LOUD appearance. Think Flash Gordon and you'll be close.

Pros: great sound, clear controls, good operation, features do what you expect.

Summary: if you can handle the size and appearance, you'll have a great boombox.

I am a 54 y.o white guy who needed a portable stereo system. I really wanted a JVC Kaboom, you could play a guitar through that 40 watt unit, but apparently JVC does not make those systems anymore. And I do not have an IPhone, which most systems seem to be made for these days. So I went with the Sony. And I gave it 5 stars across the board although I have not used all the features yet. But I can tell already, with a few exceptions, this is a great unit. Let me answer back at some of the negatives I read prior to purchasing this Sony.

1. You have to be close or right in front of the unit for the remote to work. I stepped approx. 12 feet away and used the remote at a side angle with no problems. I honestly would not expect more than that. Are you trying to control it from down the block or what?

2. The readout is tough to see. Yes, it is. And??? I mean, what do you expect? A 15 inch LCD? It is a boombox, right? 30 years ago people were happy to be watching a 19 inch TV! Now everyone has a wall in their home just for the TV! Sure, it could be bigger but just put in a CD and let it play, bro!

3. The sound could be better, especially on audio cassetes. Huh??? You bought something like this to listen to books on tape?? That one struck me as really peculiar. Not to sound critical but why would you buy a system thats 20 watts, has a huge subwoofer, is abot 21 inches across by 15 inches deep, to listen to that type of material? That compares to buying a 60 inch Sony LCD and only having basic cable.
Again, it is a portable boombox. Does it sound as good as my Mirage surround sound system powered by a Yamaha 7.1 AV receiver? Not really. One rear Mirage speaker costs more than double what I paid for this unit so I would not have that expectation either.

I love to go camping and one of the biggest must haves is having music playing in the background. I love my jazz and rock and when I purchased the Sony Xplod CD Radio Cassette Recorder I was expecting something GREAT! and after taking it to a few locations, it has exceeded my expectations. The clarity of the music is awesome. The look is really cool and when it comes to overall quality, the BEST! I'm really happy with this purchase.

I've had this boom box for several months. It's awesome. I have it in my garage on a high shelf. I keep it plugged in - so I cannot comment on battery usage.

It blasts music from the radio or CD very clear. Radio signals come in clear. Just make sure you have the antenna fully extended. I haven't tried the cassette player yet or AM radio. The remote works well - it's small and simple. The large carry handle is convenient and makes the system very portable.

The instructions are on a large fold out sheet. It's easy reading and only needed to learn how to program favorite radio channels; plus to find out what the little, hard to see icons mean on the display.

I only wish the LCD display pane was much larger and backlit. The boom box is ugly, but a great, solidly built system.

this is the boombox that will blow away the competition. i bought it at a sony outlet for more than amazon has it for. compared to the sony cfdg500 and the other xplod the cfdg505(ugly boombox in my opinion and was the twin to the cfdg500 but was no really an xplod boombox) the cfdg700cp has 20 watts of power and can rattle the windows in my room. this boombox can beat some of the shelf systems out there that i have already listened to and even owned one. this boombox is a beast but really thumps out the added bass that you can add with a cd player that you can very easily add with the built in wire. last years xplod(cfd505) could not really handle added bass. it would say help me. this time sony put a bigger and shiny subwoofer that you can see with the red lights around the subwoofer. also you now have mp3 playback capability.(the only thing missing is the backlight display again. i guess sony leaves it out cuz of lights going around the subwoofer other than that, this is a perfect boombox) oh also if you are listening to a cd or an mp3 cd, if you stop playing the cd, the thing wont remember where you left of. i personally don't like that cuz i want to hear an mp3 cd over several days without having to hear the same songs over and over. but i can live with that cuz i have my sony dne330 walkman cd player easily taking care of my mp3 cd's on clearbass level 2 (can go to clearbass level 3 but that is already too much bass and the boombox can take it without distortion) bottom line if only it had that damn backlight display it would be perfect. but who knows, maybe sony will put it in on next years model.
